Game 75, Mariners at Dodgers
Olson vs Kuroda, 1:05 pm.
First, the news of the day. Mike Morse won’t be coming up to join the Mariners in place of Adrian Beltre, because they’ve traded him to the Washington Nationals for Ryan Langerhans. Yes, the same Ryan Langerhans I was publicly lobbying for a few days ago. I love our new front office.
Secondly, Beltre’s going to play today, so he’s in the line-up. He’ll go on the DL tomorrow, making room for Langerhans (or a pitcher, depending on Sean White’s health) on the roster. The team needed a LH outfielder more than they needed another infielder, with Carp/Wilson/Woodward already around as infield reserves.
Thirdly, wooo. It’s so awesome having a GM who knows what he’s doing.
