Jeff and Derek on Q It Up Sports tonight

Jeff · July 30, 2006 at 1:00 pm · Filed Under Mariners 

UPDATE: Jason’s in, too.

With Derek’s heroic efforts to revive the site having borne fruit, we’re off to dabble in other forms of media again. We’ll be on Q13’s Q It Up Sports show tonight at 10:30. Evidently, we’ll be discussing Mariner (in)activity in advance of the trade deadline.

It’s live television, so there’s always the possibility of unhinged hilarity. Those of you who have been to feeds know that Derek and I usually have bets about who can better work certain obscure references into public appearances, too, so there’s that.

The lineup: me, Derek, New York Vinnie and Dan Devone. We’re trying to talk Jason into coming as well, but we’ll see Jason Barker makes it a USSM triumvirate. We’ve got the others outnumbered.

Tune in, or don’t. I’ll still respect you in the morning either way.

    Ooh!!! Do an Evil Rick Rizzs impression on TV! 🙂

    Be careful New York Vinnie doesn’t eat you.

    You’ll probably be asked about your opinions on this:

    Bobby Abreu and Corey Lidle to New York Yankees for CJ Henry, Matt Smith, Jesus Sanchez, and Carlos Monasterios. The Yankees will also pay all of Abreu’s remaining contract through 2007, but the deal included a 1.5 million buyout by the Phillies on Abreu’s 2008 option so that the 2008 option doesn’t have to be picked up.

    Initial thought?

    Phillies got hosed.

    I can’t believe that the Phillies effectively gave away Abreu. Terrible deal for the Phillies.

    I’m also prepared to answer questions about your friend and mine, Ryan Franklin, who was DFAd today.

    Initial thought? I’m going to cry.

    [not literally, but it’s close]

    I can’t bear the thought of seeing Bobby Abreu in a Yankees uniform.

    Jeff –
    What happens to Franklin now? Will he get picked up by someone (surely someone could use his veteran arm, right?) or is he finished?

    Also, who did the Cards give up for Belliard (per Dave on the game thread)?

  7. PositivePaul on July 30th, 2006 2:06 pm

    Gonna be hard to top that whole non-sexual man crush thing. Classic!

    And I’d love to see Devone and Vinny try to figure out what “Doyle” means…

  8. Jeff on July 30th, 2006 2:09 pm

    There’s zero chance Franklin comes back to the M’s, but I think someone will take a chance on him as a long reliever.

  9. msb on July 30th, 2006 2:29 pm

    even though, as we all know, Ryan IS a starter 🙂

    #6– the whole Phillies thing is so clearly just a salary dump. some say Hector Luna for Belliard.

    Jeff, is there anything y’all can do to puncture Dan Devone’s self-importance?

    As I don’t live in Seattle anymore, is there any way to watch this broadcast on the web? Or can somebody tape it and throw it on Youtube or something? I don’t want to miss this….but I don’t want to spend $350 on a flight up there just to catch it.

  11. vj on July 30th, 2006 2:41 pm

    I second that.

  12. Pilots fan on July 30th, 2006 3:22 pm

    I think the certain obscure reference you should work in would be that the SoDo MoFo is NoMo … just a thought

  13. Jim Thomsen on July 30th, 2006 4:28 pm

    So, gentlemen, what will be tonight’s sartorial selections?

  14. DMZ on July 30th, 2006 4:49 pm

    I will be dressed up

  15. vj on July 30th, 2006 4:54 pm

    Ignoring Abreu’s stature in Philadelphia for a moment, I would beg to differ on his trade: He’s due 15 Million next year and it seems that you can get more production out of that kind of money. And one of the guys they get back is a first rounder.

  16. Trev on July 30th, 2006 4:55 pm

    Somone want to post video later? (YouTube?)

  17. Mr. Egaas on July 30th, 2006 5:23 pm

    I too would love a video.

  18. KW on July 30th, 2006 5:25 pm

    As would I.

  19. DKCecil on July 30th, 2006 8:11 pm

    Yeah, the Phillies didn’t get a lot back for the trade (even though Henry is an intriguing SS prospect), but they shed a ton of salary. Abreu’s contract is a monster, and this move allows them to head into the offseason with the money to spend on their real problem: pitching.

  20. JMB on July 30th, 2006 8:29 pm

    Remember who Philly’s GM is: Pat “25-as-1” Gillick. Abreu’s contract doesn’t fit his philosophy (and honestly, Abreu makes a TON for a guy who’s very good but not great). That they were able to get the Yankees to pick up all of it is a bonus.

  21. msb on July 30th, 2006 8:59 pm

    I thought it was Steve “25-as-1” Phillips? Can they share they nickname?

  22. AK4Sea on July 30th, 2006 9:20 pm

    I third (or fourth or fifth, I wasn’t paying that close attention) the notion that someone put our boys’ interview on YouTube.

  23. NBarnes on July 31st, 2006 1:16 am

    What the Phillies got back was a lack of Abreu’s and Lidle’s contracts. Anything else was a bonus.

    What the Yankees got was not necessarily Bobby Abreu, EQA .326 superstar. What they got, very specifically, was trading something they don’t need (middling prospects and a LOT of money) for something they do need (beating Boston for the AL East), via replacing ABs by some combination of Melky Cabrera (EQA .266), Andy Phillips (EQA .235), and Bernie Williams (EQA .264) with Bobby Abreu, EQA .301 solid star performer. Of course Abreu is being overpaid, and the Yankees know it. They aren’t paying for Abreu per se, they are paying for the priviledge of beating the Red Sox via the route that comes most easily to hand; money.
