Game 48, Mariners at A’s

Bedard vs Cahill, 12:35 pm.

The A’s offense isn’t very good, and Bedard is. Quick, someone make sure that Ruben Amaro and Kenny Williams are watching this game.

    My thought has always been that we were winning (despite personal numbers) when Johnson was behind the plate, and Chavez was leading off.

    I think, despite how Ichiro is conceived as a lead-off hitter, that our lineup should start with:

    1. Chavez
    2. Ichiro
    3. Lopez
    4. Branyan
    5. Beltre
    6. Griffey

    You know what is pathetic? The M’s haven’t won back to back games in over a month

    I still think Gutierrez should be in the two-hole.

    Tomorrow! Lackey vs. Vargas! Time for back-to-back wins (fingers crossed)! wOOt!

    The game’s being replayed on FSN for folks like me willing to watch us win for sure!

    Nice capture of the third base coach trying to coach Yuni after he didn’t get the runner home from third in the first inning. Talk about some body language! Not listening in any language.

    Since it was Bruce Hines, we know he was telling Yuni in Spanish …

    I can think of a few fans who’d like a chance to ‘communicate’ with Yuni.

    Aw, that was bad! I saw that Ichiro was caught stealing on Gameday at work, but it was a stinky steal live.

    And is there some way to find out what Yuni’s popout rate is? I’m sort of obsessed with his number of popup outs.

    Yes, clearly the guy who has been on base 69 times and has been driven in 12 times by his teammates should have his position in the order changed. Here’s how you can tell the lineup sucks: Beltre, Branyan, Lopez and Gutierrez have all been driven in by teammates (i.e., not on their own home runs) more than the guy how leads off and has been on base (despite missing the first eight games) more than anyone else on the club. But what sucks is not Ichiro’s position in the batting order. It’s Griffey’s, Yuni’s and Beltre’s.

    That’s a swell idea. From now on I’ll watch only FSN replays of M’s games they’ve won. Starting in the ninth inning.

    Darn, I had to leave work. Does Yuni pop out here? I’m betting he does. Or a DP.

    Nope, door number three! A strike out! And what a pissy face that was he gave sauntering back to the dug out. Has he heard the trade rumors?
