Game 106, Angels at Mariners
Felix Day, Felix Day, Felix Felix Felix Day
Jered Weaver v Felix Hernandez. 7:05. FSN.
Usually, I wait to post the game threads until about an hour ahead of time, but what’s the point? The M’s lineup is going to be the M’s lineup.
For pre-game discussion, then — please help me with this: Lopez is hitting really badly. The last time we visited this topic, he was doing well. Previous discussions about how Hargrove’s insistence on having him go opposite-field and ground to the second baseman all the time were held up as examples of how Hargrove had a long-term plan for developing Lopez, and we (and by we I mean us and Jeff Sullivan at LL) were a bunch of morons for doubting his wisdom.
Now, I missed a chunk of the season there, but what happened? Did he fall apart entirely? Is he swinging at everything?
Ah, lineups are out. And… well:
3 RF-R Guillen
4 LF-L Ibanez
5 3B-R Beltre
6 1B-L Broussard (!)
