Uhh, Yeah

I am shocked, just shocked, that a line-up that had Willie Bloomquist’s .632 OPS hitting second, Jose Vidro’s .578 OPS hitting fourth, and Miguel Cairo’s .568 OPS hitting 9th could only manage two hits against Justin Duchscherer. I mean, really, who could see a team that starts three of the worst hitters alive struggling to score runs?

This organization is still dumb.

    But it’s only the 8th inning! You never know!

    You, sir, trample upon the ancient and heretofore useful word ‘dumb’. Tonight’s line up is to merely ‘dumb’ as the abyss of the Marianas Trench is to a children’s wading pool.

    An IQ infusion into this organization. Please.

    Was this just a “throw-away” game. Give the regulars a rest and you lose one rather than impacting your offence game after game?

    I like this. New M’s slogan for 2008?

    Is it more disturbing that one of our only two hits was from one of the people you point out (and I agree) shouldn’t be in the lineup?

    I saw the lineup posted and changed the channel.

    What’s sad is you know the M’s were actually trying to win, and not tank.

    My, Oh My!

    Ditto. Well, except I turned off my T.V. and went upstairs. Just couldn’t bear to watch something I knew would be pitiful.

    The Mariners roster is so bad and their lineup construction so poor that I’ve had to redefine my standards for a “good” lineup. In Bloomquist, Vidro, and Cairo, they have three players who aren’t major league hitters, with the latter two deserving to be released. Sexson is pretty bad for a 1B but at least his OPS is 700 and Johjima is better than his OPS so far. So I figure any lineup that contains only one of Bloomquist, Vidro, and Cairo is a good lineup. All three of them in the lineup and two in the first four spot — that’s not even a good AAA lineup. Glad I wasn’t home to watch.

    [Sexson] “At least his OPS is 700”

    Jesus, people. Such high standards!

    You should be grateful that your team’s members can even walk erect, or dress themselves.

  13. Steve T on July 8th, 2008 11:50 pm

    Oh, and by the way, as of tonight Sexson’s OPS is below .700. .696. And that represents IMPROVEMENT.

    Tonight, hitters under .800 = 9 (no pinch-hitters). Hitters under .700 = 5. Hitters under .600 = 2.

    These guys have been under water for so long — WHY WON’T THEY DROWN?

    Hey now, that’s placing undue pressure and expectations on the Mariners.

    Geez, some fans and their unrealistic demands on the poor M’s.

    Even worse quote, “He was in complete control of the strike zone,” Oakland manager Bob Geren said. “They have some pretty good hitters in that lineup over there so it was a great performance.

    HAHAHA, is Geren now delusional?
