In Other News

Edit: Mariners have acquired John Parrish from Baltimore, reportedly for non-prospect outfielder Sebastian Boucher, and optioned Mark Lowe to Tacoma. This is probably a good move for Lowe to get more regular work in low pressure situations, but Parrish won’t help this team. He’s now their worst reliever and they’re very unlikely to realize that.

And, if you wanted an alternative, the Indians released Fernando Cabrera today. Cabrera > Parrish, and he’s now available to anyone for a minor league contract.

Here’s a new thread for discussion of the team before the game thread goes live later tonight. However, this thread comes with rules. The following topics are off limits:

1. Jose Vidro
2. Chemistry
3. Clutch Hitting

If you want to talk about any of those things, your thread is below. Call it segregation if you want, but we’re serious about trying to get this place back to being something better than what it has been lately.

    I guess this qualifies as “in Other News”…

    Was there ever a bigger d#@k in M’s history?

    I,too, could not understand the pickup of Parrish. I have seen him get shelled many times on TV. But looking at his stats this year, I see that the only teams he has had success against are Chicago and Minnesota. Low and behold, the M’s next 12 games are against these two teams. The numbers: 6.2 innings pitched; 7 hits, 1 run and 10 K’s. Perhaps a couple of good weeks until Lowe is ready to go more frequently.
