Game 61, Mariners at Cubs

Washburn vs Hill, 5:05 pm.

M’s go with their standard non-DH line-up, which includes Lopez hitting 2nd and Turbo banished to the bench.

Hill’s a good arm, but he’s not as good as his ERA would have you believe. Plus, he’s a lefty. And the wind is blowing out. Expect run scoring.

    WOOOOOOOO! M’s win, now Grover and the coaching staff get to try to figure out how to piece together a couple of extra arms for tomorrow.

    Who’s pitching tomorrow if Batista needs a bail-out by the 5th? Chaves?

    God is a Jose Vidro fan, no doubt about it.

    I need more lithium because this team has got me on a manic high.

    Hey … it wasn’t a 1-run win ๐Ÿ˜‰

  6. davepaisley on June 12th, 2007 9:23 pm

    Best game ever?

    This had everything except well executed baseball…

    13.5 games ahead of Texas ๐Ÿ˜€

    The M’s Pythagorean Expected Win% total for end-of-season has been raised to 88 wins…

    imagine my surprise tuning back in, in the 13th, to find the game not only still going, but that I arrived back just in time to see an example of that weird strange gritty scrappy mojo of Willie’s that causes lucky hops to happen, and so further build his mysterious legend …

    #457– wouldn’t it be Jake Woods?

  10. MeatMatt on June 12th, 2007 9:31 pm

    What a game!

    So much for catching up on Sopranos ๐Ÿ™

    But I’ll take a late win for penance. Keep ’em coming!

  11. Sports on a Schtick on June 12th, 2007 9:35 pm

    I can’t take much more of this.

  12. fishiam on June 12th, 2007 9:37 pm

    I, on the other hand, can take a great deal more of this. Go M’s!

  13. bhsmarine on June 12th, 2007 9:37 pm

    I can take all the winning in the world…

  14. pumpkinhead on June 12th, 2007 9:37 pm

    Now if only those lame yanks would start another losing streak.

    Freddy is probable for shoulder surgery, so sayeth ESPN. That sucks, I was always fond of Freddy and his awesomeness and lack of run support.

    3 Games from the Angels and 1 from the Wild Card. Great season so far!

  16. Tim-in Tampa on June 12th, 2007 9:49 pm

    It’s late here.

    And I thought I might get to bed early for a change.

    What a win.

    Good night.

    Sometimes it’s tough being a M’s fan in the east.

    Why, Ichiro! of course.

    Hilarious game thread. I left to go watch (and drink) at Big Time (where quite a few folks were living and dying through the extra innings) but coming back and reading this after the fact is like getting to watch the game twice. With a bunch of very funny people. Man, what a game.

  19. Joe Bag o' Doughnuts on June 12th, 2007 10:17 pm

    I don’t know who you call up. Woods last pitched on the seventh, but his line was:
    5IP, 13H, 10R, 10ER, 3BB, 0SO, 3HR.

    OK, maybe he was having a bad day, but that is a REALLY BAD day.

    Feierabend pitched on the ninth:
    6IP, 11H, 8R, 5ER, 1BB, 4SO, 1HR

    Which I guess is better, and he could do long relief on four days rest, I think.

    You want someone on the 40 man? Mateo, Feierabend, Woods, Rowland-Smith. That’s it.

  20. Grizz on June 12th, 2007 10:32 pm

    Woods and Feierabend last pitched at Colorado Springs, which is like pitching at Coors Field with the fences brought in to little league depth.

  21. Joe Bag o' Doughnuts on June 12th, 2007 10:43 pm

    OK. I’d pick Feierabend simply because he sucked marginally less.

    We can get by with two pitchers as long as the game doesn’t go into 14 innings, in which case we bring in the next starter – which would be Weaver. At least it would end the game!

    I want to see Jose Vidro on Dancing with the Stars.

    “I want to see Jose Vidro on Dancing with the Stars.”

    They probably will be looking for a baseball player for the next season, and god willing, Vidro will have retired. Right? Right!?

    Go read the Cubs recap on their mlb thread. Barrett’s recounting of The Dance is fabulous.

  24. ErikG803 on June 12th, 2007 11:54 pm

    Heh, Barrett pulled a Romo.

  25. Evan on June 12th, 2007 11:55 pm

    I want to see Jose Vidro on Dancing with the Stars.

    His baserunning did kind of remind me of John Ratzenberger.

    This last week has fucking ruled. It’s like someone sprinkled pixie dust on us. We are The Team of Destiny (TTOD).

  27. joser on June 13th, 2007 1:41 am

    Yeah, just remember this when the breaks all seem to go the other way. We’ve seen it before (for seemingly entire seasons) and we’ll see it again. But for right now, let’s enjoy it while it’s here.
