    EVERY guy we traded for Bedard is doing well (well I don’t know about Butler)

    Sherril and AJ were kicking ass, Tillman is tearing up the minors, and Mickolio is up to take Sherril’s spot…

    And we got a broken “Ace”…

    I’ve said it a million times…WORST. Ms TRADE. EVER.

    Well, that’s assuming the Ms would know what to do in transitioning the young players into the majors….

    we love bevasi oh yes we do.

    we love bevasi oh yes we do.

    when you’re not with us, were blue.

    Oh bevasi, we still lose because of you.

    It’s a bird… it’s a plane… NO IT’S FUCKING HORACIO RAMIREZ

    MacPhail beats Mariners. Couldn’t they have seen that coming?

  5. praetore on August 20th, 2008 1:03 pm

    If the mariners win every single game of the rest of the season, do we make the playoffs? prolly not

    Now we know the answer to the question, “Who in the fanbase is such a diehard that they’re still following a 15-3 game on a weekday afternoon when the team is 30.5 games out of first?”

    55 – if we win every game after today, we’d finish 82-80. That’s not going to cut it.

    Jamie Burke at 3rd?

  8. praetore on August 20th, 2008 1:11 pm

    I’m confused, I’m not going to watch anymore

  9. red_devil20 on August 20th, 2008 1:12 pm

    Meet Jaime Burke, our Jose Oquendo!

  10. Go Felix on August 20th, 2008 1:14 pm

    Ho-Ram looked pretty good. I wonder if he’s a free agent at the end of the season, maybe we could sign him to a 5 year $10 million/year contract.

  11. JR Ewing on August 20th, 2008 1:14 pm

    Burke is the new ignitor.

  12. Go Felix on August 20th, 2008 1:16 pm

    I’m convinced, now, that they’re going to have Burke play every position this year so the FO can have something to be happy about. VETERAN GRIT.

    At least the Sox know when to use a pitcher like Ho-Ram. In a blowout.

  14. Jay R. on August 20th, 2008 1:24 pm

    It is games like this that make me glad that I quit tuning in when they took Washburn back off of waivers. I am just emotionally spent at this point. Hate isn’t the opposite of love; apathy is. Guess where your fanbase is headed, front office clowns?

  15. Waiting for 09 on August 20th, 2008 1:29 pm

    To be fair, the M’s used Ho-Ram in blowouts too, it’s just it was the other team blowing us out.

  16. after4ever on August 20th, 2008 1:29 pm

    Lord love a duck (as my jr high football coach used to say).

    Log on to the ESPN scoreboard to see what’s up with the game, and, lo and behold, there are 3 White Sox lined up in the Gameday Heroes gallery at the top of the page. [heavy sigh]

    Sims – “Second inning in a row the M’s have kept the Sox off the board..”

    Wow, what a pathetic kudo.

  18. Waiting for 09 on August 20th, 2008 1:33 pm

    If only it were the second inning.

  19. Waiting for 09 on August 20th, 2008 1:36 pm

    What’s really sad is if you combine the total of M’s runs for this series, only one the three games would’ve been won even with three games worth of runs.

  20. JMHawkins on August 20th, 2008 1:36 pm

    Burke playing Third? Why not, he’s not the only guy out of position. I mean, if they’re going to have the peanut vendors pitch, why can’t the catcher play third.

    And why does Sportsline keep insisting Wilson is on the active roster?

  21. don52656 on August 20th, 2008 1:37 pm

    Last 10 games, M’s pitchers have:

    Allowed 93 runs.
    Allowed 128 hits (.341 BA)
    Allowed 31 doubles, 1 triple, 22 HR’s (.605 SLG)
    Allowed 53 BB’s, 3 HBP (.416 OBP)
    Allowed OPS of 1.021
    Allowed 72 runs in the first 5 innings.
    Allowed runs in 42 of the 87 innings played.
    Allowed 3 or more runs 13 times.

    Over on FSN…I swear Angie is drunk.

    (Might be the only way to keep yourself going through all of this…)

  23. bakomariner on August 20th, 2008 1:47 pm

    Apparently, the Seattle media asked Joey Cora quite a few questions about managing in Seattle next year…that might be great…


  24. G-Man on August 20th, 2008 2:14 pm

    bakomariner, my first thought is, what that be a smart move for Cora or not? It worked out OK for Melvin, but others have been one-and-done after taking their first managing job here.

    The love child of Bill James and Earl Weaver couldn’t help this team in ’09.

    “Lord love a duck (as my jr high football coach used to say).”

    Eliza Doolittle was your jr high school football coach?!

  26. msb on August 20th, 2008 3:43 pm

    why was Burke at third?!?

    AAAAAAAND there’s #609. Go Junior!

    sounds like the only thing to be sad about missing; I want Sammy Soser pushed out of the top 5 …

  27. Karen on August 20th, 2008 3:56 pm


    That’s a whole season for some teams…

  28. skjes on August 20th, 2008 4:51 pm

    I’m still amazed that even as bad as the M’s are, we’re still losing the race for Strasburg.

    I’m also amused that the Times and the P-I are both seemingly hiding the M’s place in the AL West standings. The P-I doesn’t even have the M’s listed on the MLB standings list as of this writing. The Times only had it listed as part of the general AL standings list.

  29. bratman on August 21st, 2008 8:33 am

    78 – I see the Mariners in first place in the standings ….

    of course I’m holding my paper upside down.
