    Saunders is hitting in the #2 hole? Is that actually right?

    Saunders “hitting” in the 2 hole = a strikeout in first at-bat. Here’s hoping he has a good day today.

    Did the Mariners actually make six outs in just eight pitches?

  4. marc w on March 8th, 2012 1:38 pm

    Ackley with a HR off of Carlos Marmol. 3 run shot.

    Diderot – no, that’s just the way it looks in gameday if there’s no pitchfx. It thinks any in-play out took one pitch, any K took three and any walk four.

    Thanks to Shannon Drayer, some news from the B game – M’s won 7-3, HR for Trayvon Robinson, 3 IP, 1R from Noesi.

    Mike Wilson in for Casper Wells, Alex Liddi in for Seager, Rodriguez in for Ackley, Ford for Saunders, DeJesus for Smoak.

    Neftali Feliz got knocked around a little bit in the Rangers game against the White Sox. It’d be nice if Feliz struggles in the transition to starter; might help balance out the whole Darvish thing.

    Tom Wilhelmsen gives up a couple of unearned runs. Meanwhile, Steve Delabar went 1-2-3 with 3 Ks in the B game. The competition for #1 position amongst inspiring comeback stories is well and truly joined.

    Liddi knocks in two with a double off of Scott Maine, who’s been a pretty tough reliever in AAA.

    Wow, bases loaded, two outs at home with a DP, no runs scored. Looks like Mariners Luck is in full effect early.

  11. marc w on March 8th, 2012 2:49 pm

    M’s had bases loaded and nobody out and score only 1 after a fielders choice, a single, and a double play from F-Mart. M’s lead 8-3.

  12. harry on March 8th, 2012 2:51 pm

    Looks like I missed that fielder’s choice… gameday is slow refreshing, and all I heard was the two outs at home.

    Casey Weathers in for the Cubs. Man, the M’s get a lot of derision for the Jeff Clement pick, but Weathers went #7 overall in 2007 ahead of Madison Bumgarner, Jason Heyward, JP Arencibia, and some prospects like Jarrod Parker. It’s not exactly the same, but a college reliever #7 overall? Even if he’d been decent, why would you do that? Hell, Bavasi waited until the 20s for Josh Fields.

    M’S WIN! M’S WIN!

    I know its only spring training but anytime I read the words “M’s Win” I get a little smile on my face, and then I realize just how few times I do that in a baseball season.

    Any word on what Noesi’s velocity was yesterday?
