Game 42, Padres at Mariners

Lee vs LeBlanc, 7:10 pm.

The Padres are about as close to the Mariners as you can get, only their pitchers are more overachieving than legitimately good. I wouldn’t expect them to start underachieving this weekend. These two teams meeting in Safeco Field should theoretically equal a lot of low scoring games.

Ichiro, RF
Figgins, 2B
Gutierrez, CF
6-4-3, DH
Lopez, 3B
Bradley, LF
Kotchman, 1B
Bard, C
Josh Wilson, SS

    That was teh ownage. Hopefully Mike can continue to hit like that and give us a decent DH. He’ll still need time off though, so hopefully he shares time with Milton and Saunders gets more time in left.

    Is it time to start spelling Sweeney S-W-E-E-N-E-Y instead of 6-4-3?

    I have to temper my post game comments. Before the game I questioned Huggy Bear and Lopez batting 4-5. Sweeney proved me wrong tonight and pretty much for the last week and a half when he’s been playing. I’ll take that. On to Lopez—both AB’s after Sweeney dingers he swings at the first pitch and makes an out. The first time against a pitcher who was pressing just to throw strikes. No wonder Cockrell got fired with ridiculous plate approaches like that. tonight isn’t the first night he has done this. Get rid of the bum

    That was nice, while it may not make sense, I think we’re a much better team with Bradley. Look what’s happened since he’s come back. Two feel-great wins. He really works the other pitchers! Not to mention aggressive swinging which we generally lack.
