Game 9, Indians At Mariners

Tomlin vs Bedard, 1:10 pm.

Not one to sit around and wait for the ship to right itself, Eric Wedge is putting out his let’s-try-something-new batting order, after watching the offense flail aimlessly for the last week. I’m just glad this means Luis Rodriguez gets a start. Normally, I’d say something here about the team running out eight left-handed bats in a row against an RHP, but Josh Tomlin has shown no platoon split so far in his big league career, and it’s not like the M’s have exploited platoon match-ups so far this year anyway. I’ll just say that I’m pretty sure we won’t end the year with two home runs, and it will be nice when Chone Figgins isn’t leading the team in round trippers.

    We are not a good team.

    But, for a period, I did see some hope for the future.

    …I did see some hope for the future…

    Is this why Schick Shadel advertises so much? 10 days and we can get our lives back? If you were talking about the Mariners, the small sample size is beginning to alarm me! This team needs to win in a hurry!

    I bet is glad he started in AAA.

    Especially since he is batting .188. I know, small sample size.

    Adam Kennedy, proud owner of a lifetime .316 wOBA, is your #3 hitter in a lineup?

    Hey, I can remember the days where people complained about Jose Lopez hitting third in 2009. He poated a .325 wOBA that year.

    Nice to see we’ve improved the offense two years down the road into Jack Zdurencik’s regime, eh?

    I see we’ve already reached the point where recaps are just pointless exercises in exasperation.

    Dave already has said we shouldn’t expect recaps on the weekends.

    I’m still betting my 5 bucks the M’s win the world series 🙂

    Better to just set that $5 bill on fire…at least it will generate some heat that way and not be a total waste LOL

    Actually, I think a Washington Lotto “Lucky For Life” ticket might be a better investment of a $5 bill…lol!
