Game 143, Blue Jays at Mariners

Lilly vs Woods, 7:05 pm.

To be honest with you, I have no idea why you should watch this game. Lefty on the mound, so no Doyle tonight. The team can’t hit southpaws. Jake Woods is starting against the Blue Jays. If this game has a redeeming quality, I don’t know what it is.

CF Ichiro!
3B Beltre
SS Betancourt
LF Ibanez
1B Sexson
DH Perez
C Johjima
2B Lopez
RF Morse

versus Toronto’s vastly superior batting order.

    I missed this weekend’s games for a trip to Whistler, and this is my punishment.

    OK, it was on the radio a while ago, so I’m late to the point here. But if I ever hear that Farmer’s Insurance “There’s been a fire in our house” commercial again, I’m going to go fucking postal.

    I mean, if you had a fire in your house would you be talking like the in-touch-with-his-feminine-side, gush-ball male lead from a tele-novella?

    “There’s an entire airforce heading our way”
    -I’m willing to be that there won’t be
    “People are parachuting down”
    -You might want to look again, because you sound as if you’ve been drinking Rightguard Toilet Duck.

    Who do they think they’re fooling?

    Ah, it beats talking about this game. At least this should mean no Jake Woods in the 07 rotation.

    What is the point of having Mike Morse on the 40-man roster?

  5. Lauren, token chick on September 11th, 2006 8:40 pm

    Errr… I don’t know. I would doubt it. Everyone up there is mountain biking and ziptrekking and treetop touring.

    54…he hits better than Bloomquist.

    that was nice to see a DP performed by our team

  8. true_slicky on September 11th, 2006 8:53 pm

    double play?

    shouldn’t John McDonald hit a, oh I don’t know, a grand slam when he comes up with the bases loaded vs. the M’s?

    We should also go postal if we have to see the likes of Cruceta and Huber trying to hold down the fort. I’m sorry, but having a AAA exclusive starter in the pen for middle relief followed by “the dude traded for friggin’ Dave Hansen” in the ninth, makes it much less of a mystery as to how we have up three more runs after Felix was taken out.

    zaun hit into that dp

  11. mark s. on September 11th, 2006 8:57 pm

    Morse vs. Bloomquist as 4th outfielder
    Jake vs. Joel as 5th starter

    How did Woods ever get into the starting rotation compared to … all the other pitchers in the organization.

  12. vaughn leland on September 11th, 2006 8:57 pm

    not on tv

  13. Allen Jacobs on September 11th, 2006 9:17 pm

    Perez has never got it going since the trade. Hopefully Bavasi will look to upgrade his “lefty killer”.

    63. gotta play to earn your pay

  15. Lauren, token chick on September 11th, 2006 9:24 pm

    Beautiful, Raul!

    Give him a gold glove.

  16. mark s. on September 11th, 2006 9:24 pm

    nice catch raul!

  17. Josh on September 11th, 2006 10:27 pm

    Thread kinda died. =\

    The game wasn’t on TV in Seattle? That blows. It was a decent game, and any Jays game with Lilly pitching means there’s a chance to watch him punch out John Gibbons.

    Safeco was deserted.* There were maybe 30 people scattered through the outfield seats.

    * No, I wasn’t there. I watched the Jays’ broadcast. Rance Mullinicks is an entertaining colour guy.

    Was at the game, was a snoozer and there couldn’t have been more than 15k people, even though the announced attendance was somewhere in the low 20’s. Highlights were:

    1) Traded my decent season tickets for some seats right above the Ms on deck circle
    2) A couple nice plays in field by Raul & Ichiro
    3) An even better play by the Japanese tourist next to me, who managed to catch a foul ball using a plastic cup 1/2 filled with popcorn

    Too bad the game wasn’t televised locally, pretty sure my wife and I probably made it on camera for the last one.

    This game was on tv locally, FSN NorthWest.

    Free ticket to the game 3 rows off the field…awesome…
    Free parking before the game…great…
    Having Doyle sign the back of your ticket…priceless…

    Morse is a better player than bloomquist.
