Hernandez vs Clemens, 10:05 am

For the second straight start, today would be a great time for Felix to exert his Kingship.

    Does anyone know why Lowe hasn’t been called up yet? Is he still needing more work? I thought he was doing okay in the big leagues earlier this year (better than a couple of our other picthers at least).

    Lowe shouldn’t have come up when he did. He’s not healthy yet and probably wont pitch at all for us until next year.

    Post-game discussion of tomorrow’s match-up:

    “I guess we’d have to give the advantage to Wang over Ramirez.”

    Yah think!?

    “Right-hander Mark Lowe was another pitcher who received a lot of consideration for a promotion to the big league club. Lowe is coming off arthroscopic elbow surgery and has yet to make an appearance this season. During his rehab, Lowe felt some soreness that has temporarily delayed his return to the Majors.

    “We’re [being] careful with him,” McLaren said. “We’re monitoring the situation. It wasn’t the same injury, but he was having some discomfort so we backed him up a little bit.”

    On Friday night, Lowe pitched for the first time in more than two weeks. He allowed one hit and one walk but did not surrender a run for Triple-A Tacoma. He still remains a possibility to be activated some time this month.”

    The West Tennessee Diamond Jaxx site has Jimerson with 30 SB and 9 CS, so clearly that was a typo.

    304: Oh, ok. baseballcube had it backwards, then.

    JJ was really happy to be back out there– he said he felt really uncomfortable in Toronto, having sat for so long over the streak

    and Clemens will be having an MRI …

    [blockquote]The Reds announcers are mocking our 9 game losing streak. I can’t get away from it!![/blockquote]

    I thought Reds announcers only mocked their own players and then in an incessisant, unprofessional, and often unjustifiable manner.

    300 theraven – that’s just hogwash from the Yankees broadcast crew. Of the 26 remaining games in the Mariners schedule:
    4 are against Tampa (crap)
    3 vs Texas (crap)
    and the other 19 against NYY, Detroit, LAA, Cleveland and Oakland (not crap, not even Oakland)
    The Mariners remaining opponents currently sport a .516 winning percentage.

    terry, you need to use angle brackets instead of regular brackets.

  10. Colm on September 3rd, 2007 2:25 pm

    The Yankees have 24 games remaining: 12 against teams currently over .500 (2 Seattle, 7 Toronto, 3 Boston – and that includes one start from Horacio Ramirez) and 12 against Tampa, Kansas City and Baltimore.

    I just got back from the game. I was surprised and happy to see at least twenty other people with Mariners jerseys and shirts. The bats came alive today!

    Quote from Ichiro about the rundown: “I hate being touched by other people so rather than being touched I’d rather run away from them,” Suzuki said.

    I missed the rundown, hopefully they show it on Baseball Tonight later.

  13. Lauren, token chick on September 3rd, 2007 4:13 pm

    Awesome. I know how you feel, Ichi.

  14. gwangung on September 3rd, 2007 5:11 pm

    Classic Ichiro quote. How can the media complain about him???

    (So, Lauren, still having problems with joser….?)

    Meaningless bit of trivia picked up from SoSH, where Red Sox fans were avidly keeping track of today’s King Felix outing:

    “On Jose Vidro, since the word Vidro in Portuguese means Glass. I will now call him Joe Glass from now on.”

    FWIW, some of the comments in today’s game thread over there at SoSH were practically identical to some of the ones above. Pretty funny, it was like reading a split screen.

  16. earinc on September 3rd, 2007 5:35 pm

    If any other player had said that I’d probably be annoyed, but coming from Ichiro, it’s just kind of hilarious.

  17. Sports on a Schtick on September 3rd, 2007 5:55 pm

    Read what Ichiro said about today’s rundown. LOL.

  18. pensive on September 3rd, 2007 6:19 pm

    Sure all know this, the game is being replyed at 7pm on Fox. Quite certain th results will be the same.

  19. scraps on September 3rd, 2007 6:56 pm

    I’m surprised no one’s criticizing Ichiro for not trying to beat the rundown. It does happen, and players do throw the ball away. I love Ichiro, but I’m surprised someone isn’t making the case.

    I just heard one of my favorite Physioc/Hudler (I’m not sure which, can’t yet tell them apart)

    (about Ervin Santana) “If he had as much confidence in his pitching as Mike Socia had in him, he might once again be a 16 game winner”

  21. Catherwood on September 3rd, 2007 9:00 pm

    It suddenly occurred to me that I was a grad student at the U of Texas when Clemens was there, and now he’s washed up.

    Arghhhh! What does that make me? (The guy was scary in college, though. You could hear the catcher’s mitt popping a mile away.)

    However, I’ve discovered that when I don’t read USS Mariner during the game, and don’t watch the game or listen on the radio, the M’s are 1-0 this year, so I guess I’m signing off for the next few games….

  22. awolfgang on September 3rd, 2007 9:23 pm

    scraps, if you haven’t already noticed, Ichiro can do no wrong. And his quote just made me spill my drink, if anyone ever gets around to publishing a book of Ichiroisms, let me know cause I’ll buy it.

    p.s. seriously, I criticize the decision to run without checking that the ball went through, but with two outs, it’s an okay gamble, I don’t mind the decision not to play monkey in the middle, cause I’d rather not see an injury, and the probability of success is low.

  23. mln on September 4th, 2007 1:17 am

    It’s understandable that Ichiro ran off the field (instead of staying in a run down) because he didn’t want to be touched by any Yankee player.

    The Yankees have cooties, after all.
