    The podcast immediately downloaded in iTunes this week, so that’s good news.

    Whoa, a shout-out and some Ji-man Choi dialogue. Thanks!

    Uh, just so you know there are some other bits of bad news in the minors right now. Victor Sanchez hit the DL with forearm stiffness. Only supposed to miss one turn in the rotation, but he is a pitcher. Never forget that he is a pitcher.

    “I loved the feeling of future hope.”

    Your 2014 Seattle Mariners!

    I’m not quite so down about the team as you guys sound. The losing streak is just exactly like the Mariners we know so well, but this team seems better than some previous versions.

    - They have had some bad luck, not much good.
    - As you point out, their run differential is -1.
    - Cano hasn’t hit like Cano yet. (This really has to happen, soon.)
    - The rotation is a mess, should get better.
    - Someone in team management will figure out that Wilhelmsen should not pitch in high-leverage situations and Farquhar should.
    - Ackley and Zunino look ready to add some value.

    So I’m going to keep telling myself that this roster is a clear improvement over the last couple of years, at least until actual events force me to admit it isn’t.

    Ackley is already adding value – definitely a positive. Cano will hit like Cano – another positive. Hart can hit as well… if they stop playing him out of position, that’s a third positive.

    Zunino, though, looks ripe for significant regression. He’s swinging at 50% of pitches outside the strike zone! That’s way beyond even Olivo territory.

    First, if any of these inane fanboy comments has any known measure of effect on the frequency of this necessary therapy, let it be known that this new weekly format is well received.

    Second, the only thing that I consider to be of note this year is this odd downward feeling about Brad Miller that I’m trying to suppress and am finding that to be the most difficult reality to accept.

    Hey – I just remembered the previous podcast where Matthew made – at the time, I thought as a joke – a comment about semi-expecting the team to go on a 17 game losing streak.

    So we know where the blame lies… certainly not with the players, Mr. Carruth. If that is your real name.

    Listening to this podcast while watching the M’s absolutely implode defensively during a Felix start was perfect.

    Potential topics for next week’s podcast:
    -Exploring the difference between Transcendentalist vs. Anti-Transcendentalist M’s fans.
    -The M’s “Most Suspendable” Players.
    -Justin Smoak’s most comparable Justin Smoaks.
    -No, seriously, Willie Bloomquist doesn’t matter. In any way. To anyone.
    -Matthew calls in from a series of passing cars. Is awesome regardless.
