Game 149, Mariners at Athletics

Batista v Haren! 7:05!


Interestingly, in the “would you swap ’em” game, the beat-up A’s only really have one guy I’d take (Barton) without a second thought over the M’s version, and then you’re into Ellis v Lopez, Johnson v Vidro (yeah, I guess I take Johnson…)

Hey, while you’re waiting, did you miss today’s other posts, like “Horacio Ramirez, a historical perspective” which shows how Ramirez and the team’s inability to see his lack of value put him in select company that still makes him look bad? Or what about “Horacio Ramirez, a retrospective” featuring a cute and yet depressing graph of his suckiness?

I know, I’m feeling lonely because they only got a couple comments each.

    Well, arbitrary as it is, the rules of the USSM Lineup Swap ’em include “position player for the opposing player at that same position”.

    And I wouldn’t trade Swisher for Ichiro, even considering their contracts.

    Sorry… I don’t make the rules.

    Actually, that’s not true, I did make up the rules.

    The Mariners activated RHP Cha Seung Baek from his rehab assignment in Arizona and manager John McLaren plans to use him in long relief or perhaps for a spot start.

    “Spot start” — can you say “HoRam’s spot”?

    I would swap Vidro for Cust in a heartbeat. I’ll also take Ellis and his 5.0 RC/G over Lopez and his 3.8 RC/G (not to mention the advantage in defense to he had there). I’ll take Barton too, obviously, and I might be tempted to go with Suzuki if we’re considering contracts.
