    Absolutely awesome story, via Associated Press:

    Asheville Tourists manager
    loses it following ejection

    LEXINGTON, Ky. — Minor league manager Joe Mikulik had a major league tantrum Sunday night.

    The manager of the Asheville Tourists, a Class-A affiliate of the Colorado Rockies in the South Atlantic League, turned Applebee’s Park into a one-man show following a close call at second base in the fifth inning of a 5-2 loss to Lexington Legends.

    Lexington’s Koby Clemens — whose famous father Roger made a tuneup start for the Legends this month after re-signing with the Houston Astros — was leading off second base after hitting an RBI double when Asheville pitcher Brandon Durden tried to pick him off.

    Umpire Andy Russell called Clemens safe, sending Mikulik roaring out of the dugout and setting off a prolonged tirade that he carried all over the infield and into the dugout.

    “I thought the strike was over,” Mikulik told the Lexington Herald-Leader. “When will the real umpires show up? That’s what I want to know. Because that was an abortion. That was bad. The whole series was awful.”

    Mikulik’s antics started innocently enough with an animated argument with Russell, who then threw Mikulik out of the game.

    Things quickly escalated after his ejection. Mikulik dove into second base, ripped up the bag and hurled it onto the infield dirt. He threw a resin bag into the bullpen, covered home plate with dirt and then cleaned it with a water bottle, which he finally spiked onto the plate.

    Back in the dugout, he tossed several bats onto the field. And he didn’t stop once he got to the clubhouse, according to team officials. Mikulik pushed a couple of water coolers, a chair and a batting practice screen in front of the umpires’ locker room.

    “I just wish the umpire’s association would train their young men to have a personality,” he said. “I could get two mannequins at Sears and umpire better than what I saw this whole series.”

    Umm, Millwood didn’t win a Cy Young in Cleveland… He was only there in 2005 (last year) and Bartolo Colon won it last year.

    351, Exactly, but Webb has been faultering a little bit as of late, maybe we can catch him at a low point a la Jason Schmidt… One thing is for sure, I have been living in Tempe, AZ (Just outside of PHX) for 4 years and this is the first time that I am going to get to see the Mariners here. Needless to say, I am more than pumped! Maybe I can bring us a little bit of luck. I will be going on the 27th and the 29th. Two out of three? Rather see a sweep, but 2 out of 3 gets us to .500 🙂

    hahahah Figured this could be funny, I ran across this little tidbit about Pineiro…


    For one season at least, they could match Oakland’s starting pitching.

    The reason? . He had 28 starts in 2002 and won 14. Now at 24 and with 40 big-league starts under his belt, Pineiro could be on the verge of stardom. Place him next to and the ageless (he’s the reason for the “one season at least” reference), and the M’s could have their answer to Zito-Mulder-Hudson.

    Ah, the joys of the day of hope with Pineiro (This is from and was posted 1197 days ago.. such optimism) the article is quite a funny read

    Interesting late AP story on today’s game … I didn’t realize Embree and Sexson had gone to the same high school. They never played together because Embree is five years older.

    OK, my bad.

    sub in “ERA title” for “Cy Young Award”, though.

    Castro is up because Garciaparra isn’t coming off the DL as soon as they thought. When they got that news yesterday, they made a move for another infielder.

    Funny game story…

    I had a funny conversation with my brother after last night’s game. We were talking about Sexson and I was relating to him how there has been some discussion at USSM about how Sexson is perhaps much more of a guess hitter than M’s fans had ever known before.

    At this point my bro asked if I had noticed that Sexson was either squinting with one eye or had that eye totally shut as he watched the pitcher windup in Sunday’s game. I said I hadn’t noticed. He speculated if this was a new approach at the plate or whether the sun was in his eyes.

    I claimed that perhaps that was what was wrong with Sexson all along. He just needed to close one eye in order to hit better. To which my bro drily countered….

    “Or, perhaps he just needed to open one eye.”
