Game 147, Rangers at Mariners

Wilson vs Hernandez, 7:10 pm.

Happy Felix Day.

I’m going to miss tonight’s game because my wife is doing a sprint triathlon in the morning, and we have to be up at some ungodly hour to get her to the race for “morning” registration. For the last month or two, missing a Mariners game hasn’t been a big deal – in fact, I’ve intentionally skipped most of them, as this team is basically unwatchable. But, since Felix is pitching, I actually wish I could see this one live.

That’s how good Felix is – he makes the least entertaining team in baseball worth tuning in for. Go Felix. Be awesome.

    This just makes me sick:

    Choo’s 3 HRs, 7 RBI lift Indians out of cellar

    Who did we get for Choo? I forget, was it Eduardo Perez or Ben Broussard?

    As for mentioning no hitters, lets be honest, if this wasn’t a stat site, then bitch away. But if you are at a place that preaches objective measurements to access results and predict future performance, then bitching about superstitions is out of place.

    Way to go Tacoma Rainiers!

    That’s definitely something we can be happy about as fans.

    Rainiers ROCK!!! They need to have a parade here in Tacoma for them!!!

    The Rainiers championship should mean that Jack Zduriencik gets to keep his job.

    And Mike Wilson gets the MVP for the Tacoma PCL Championship Series. I really like what Mike Wilson and Justin Smoak did this series. Ackley’s bat was somewhat quiet other than the homerun today.

    Ackley is less than a year in playing in the minors and is 22 and hitting .274 and OBP’ing about .340 in AAA. I am excited for him. Smoak has rebounded it would seem. The changes he’s made (moving his hands, changing his approach) appears to have him on the right track again. Out with Kotch, Lope, in with Ackley, Smoak. Now if Saunders and Moore could move their OBP’s up just a bit, or a lot, I’d be a happy camper.

    They weren’t laughing about Julio Borbon trying to bunt for a single in the sixth. Borbon was justly booed by the crowd. I’ve got to hand it to tonight’s crowd. They were into this game. They got all over Borbon the minute he broke one of baseball’s unwritten rules.

    In a 2-0 game Borbon should be trying to get on anyway he can. If it were 6-0 I can see the people getting upset. But if the bunt hit is a normal part of Borbon’s game and it is then he should play his normal game.

    Should Felix only throw fastballs after the 6th when he’s got a no hitter going? I’d hate to think Felix would get a cheap no-hitter by trying to fool batters rather than going man to man with just his fastball.

    That is just as stupid.

    I forget, was it Eduardo Perez or Ben Broussard?

    ’twas Broussard. In order to acquire Perez (who joined the Baseball Tonight team approximately 72 hours after the trade, we traded Asdrubel Cabrera. (Loud, heavy sigh)
