Dobbs, Jones up, Choo, Oliveros down

Dave · July 13, 2006 at 1:29 pm · Filed Under Mariners 

In addition to the Jones move we told you about yesterday, the M’s have also swapped out Shin-Soo Choo for Greg Dobbs.

Basically, they’re not ready to kick Everett to the curb quite yet, so Dobbs gets the Petagine role of sitting on the bench and never playing, instead of Choo or Snelling. When seen through that perspective, it’s hard to argue with.

But man, they need to get rid of Everett already.

    Yup, I’m looking forward to seeing how Jones handles this step, too. Sneaking out of the office at 3 p.m. just to see the line-ups — I can stand to wait for the full game on Tivo but I can be honing my anticipation if I know who’s on the field.

    Dang! Game starts at 4:00, and I don’t get out of the office until 5:30. I should be able to at least catch the tail end if I really hurry home!

    40-man Mystery Solved.

    Jeff Harris Released.

    Yet another day filled with “DFA Carl Already!!!” comments…

    Harris can still stay in the organization, even if he is released from the 40, can’t he?

    Not that he’s an uber-prospect or anything..

    Harris is pretty much the definition of spare parts, I’d think….

    Harris was not waived to send him down, as I understand it. He was placed on waivers “for the purpose of giving him his unconditional release.” I interpret that to mean “he gone” (sorry).

    We can find another Harris where we found him, or Madritsch (did I spell that correctly?). Dime a dozen type of pitcher. I was just curious if he could stay in the organization if he wanted to, or we wanted him to.

    Not very important, but I object to Madritsch being called a dime-a-dozen type pitcher. If we hadn’t overworked him in ’04 for no good reason, there’s a good chance Piñeiro wouldn’t have started so many games this year, and we might be leading the division. I’m not saying he’d be a savior or that he’s a great pitcher or anything, but clearly not dime-a-dozen.

    130- I don’t think Minneosta’s out yet. Nine and a half is nothing, now. I na month it’d be. If they can whittle it down in half in the next two weeks, they’re players. If not, they’re done.

    Pickingup Durazo is a shrewd move, and I thought, but didn’t check, that White had been dropped. If Stewart returns to the field, Durazo is a better option than Everett, that’s for sure, but they were the only team that was in quasi-contention that I could imagine ‘talking up’ Everett up in a trade for pitching junk.

    Heck, they’re so desperate to get rid of Lohse- who I don’t want- they might be willing to make a trade just to have Everett come off the bench…
