Carlos Silva, free agent extravaganza, versus Cha Baek, who the M’s discarded for no reason early in the season. 7:05.

    Clement is totally impatient.

    Oh, NOW I know why we gave Silva that huge contract.. Because he’s a “gamer”.

    Silva’s got some of that bulldog in him”

    says one of the announcers. That, a poodle and a couple of labrador retrievers would sure explain the disappearing belt-buckle problem.

    I hope Clement starts hitting soon.

    That a win…Morow need to be starting. Saves dont’ fucking matter at this point.

    LIGHTS OUT! Gotta love Morrow.

    If you care, ESPN is covering the quasi-no hitter in LA.

    Quasi because the Angels are losing it and 8 innings won’t count.

    A no Hit win…WOW

    This game proves one of the points I try to make periodically, which is that single gsmes of baseball can show off skills that are not indicative of a player’s longterm worth, and when front offices base decisions on those games, they make serious errors. Silva clearly outpitched Baek tonight. Lopez made an absolutely WebGem-worthy play on the flip to Yuni (whose barehand was spectacular as well). That doesn’t mean that signing Silva was the right move, or that DFAing Baek was the right move, or that Lopez is a great second basemen. No one is in the major leagues who can’t have a game where they’re pretty good to great in the course of nine innings. The reason you use both statistical analysis and a knowledge of baseball fundamentals together is to avoid making choices based on single instances like this.

    I was at the Dodgers game. Jered Weaver got the loss and Reggie Willits struck out to end the game. As a M’s fan that might have been the highlight of the year for me.

    Only 17 1/2 games out and if we win the next 20, the M’s are .500 again. Don’t give up yet M’s fans!


    Good game tonight though…

    ah well, its been fun playing the crap teams.

    now we get Peavy & Halladay, right?

    As much as I loathe the Angels, though, I gotta kinda feel for Lil’ Spicoli — the poor bastard finally gets his name in the record book for something and he still loses!

    Let’s put a (sort of) in the record books for Weaver…didn’t realize he only went six in that game. >:(
