Game 22, White Sox at Mariners

Danks vs Batista, 12:35 pm.

If you haven’t heard yet, Felix’s scheduled start this weekend in NY has been postponed until next week. The M’s will throw Cha Seung Baek on Friday, Jeff Weaver on Saturday, and Jarrod Washburn on Sunday against the Yankees.

In other words, win today, because this weekend could be unbelievably ugly.

    #179 Paul B “…teams that can hit”.

    The Red Sox have had their usual problems with LOB. It’s been a real struggle in these games against the A’s scoring runs. They haven’t exactly clubbed them like the Yanks did the Rangers yesterday.

    As for the Yanks themselves, there’s an interesting development going on right now: There’s tornadoes and heavy rain going on in the Dallas-Ft. Worth area, and IF they get the game in tonight, it’ll be late. If not, it’ll be a traditional DH pair of games tomorrow while the M’s play Boston.

    No telling what condition the Yanks pitching staff, starters and relief alike, will be in by the time the M’s get into NYC.

    187: I dunno about aggressive to describe her hitting style. .221 BA with a .383 OBP one year and .241/.414 the next? That’s a hell of a lot more patience than any Mariner has displayed in the past five years.

    Woo-hoo. The Mariners win another game and series.

    The Mariner juggernaut is on a roll and cannot be stopped!

    Is it too early to start printing playoff tickets?

    Not necessarily on topic but [deleted, off-topic]

    I think it counts as on-topic, as Dave did mention that “this weekend could be unbelievably ugly”

    “Acquired outfielder Chris Snelling from the Washington Nationals for outfielder Ryan Langerhans.”

    Aw, hell no.

    Aw jeez. Doyle an A. 🙁

    Beane got Langerhans on sunday for a PTBNL, and then swapped him

  10. DanO on May 2nd, 2007 8:03 pm

    By the way…is it just me, or does nobody in MLB really put much value in Chris Snelling? All we could get for him (plus Fruto!) was Vidro, and all the Nationals got was Ryan Langerhans. Maybe they know something we don’t?

  11. Peter on May 2nd, 2007 8:10 pm

    I think if Beane wants him, that should tell us all we need to know. At least we get to see him play in Safeco again 🙁

    from the Chronicle’s Susan Slusser: “The A’s did make a trade on Wednesday, an unusual one, sending outfielder Ryan Langerhans to Washington for former Mariners outfielder Chris Snelling, long a player the A’s have had interest in. Langerhans’ A’s tenure lasted all of two games; he was acquired from Atlanta on Sunday.”

    1) Either one of my Basset Hounds is a better pitcher than Weaver. The fact that he’s getting another start is beyond ridiculous.
    2) The Yankees are indeed beatable, so I wouldn’t necessarily make assumptions about this weekend (except for Weaver’s start).
    3) I hate to keep pointing this out (as I have been since fairly early last year), but the evidence keeps accumulating that the M’s have once again destroyed an arm, this time Felix’….

    What evidence?

  15. Seth on May 3rd, 2007 3:07 pm

    Doesn’t Dave’s comment that there “aren’t any better options” sort of point out the necessity of the HoRam-RafSo trade? Without the rotation depth that HoRam provides, one of those options that aren’t any better than a guy with an 18+ ERA would be in the rotation now!
