Game 23, Mariners at Red Sox

Ramirez vs Matsuzaka, 4:05 pm

Fearless prediction – Matsuzaka throws at least one breaking ball tonight that is harder than at least one of Horacio Ramirez’s fastballs. Also, J.J.’s unavailable today, so if the M’s head to the 9th with a lead, we’ll see Brandon Morrow get his first save opportunity.

Raise your hand if you expect to head to the 9th with a lead today, though. Yea.

    Weaver basically throws batting practice, you can hit above .492 in batting practice. I see no change coming at all.

    #209…I know this is a little late, but I felt I needed to respond. My mistake..this is not a message board. It has been noted. Also I’ve visited here many of times over the years and only decided to start chime in yesterday. There are a lot of intelligent baseball/Mariner fans on this seem to be one of them. I don’t have a chip on my shoulder, I apologize if that’s how I came off. If anybody has a chip on their shoulder it’s the ones who were angered, annoyed, or offended by my first post yesterday. I was only pointing out what I thought was the truth in my eyes and fortunately for me I was able to get a rise out of a handful of the people I intended to target. It’s blatantly obvious what I must do in order to fit in here since a select few of you seem to gang together. I guess I’ll try and conform….at least I’ll do my best.

    502: You don’t have to conform. And no one says you can’t be happy with the M’s current record. But if you’re going to criticize the pessimistic outlook shared by a lot of people here, you need to rise to their intellectual level by making logical arguments grounded in useful baseball statistics. Saying “Vidro has done his job the last 10 games” doesn’t get it done.

    More importantly though, posting to “get a rise out of a handful of people” is called trolling. It’s a great way to turn people off to what you have to say, no matter how cogent it might be.
