    --He didn't give up one run though. The runs didn't actually score on errors, but on hits Washburn gave up after. Then he left with men on, but the pen got him out of it. It was a horrible start, but it wasn't exactly a masterpiece either. Overall, he is giving up almost 5 (earned) runs a game so it isn't as if he can blame his lousy record all on his defense. Believe me, I'd like to see signs that Washburn is turning a corner - we are stuck with him 3 more years after all.

    Curse of The Bambino

    I guess players and fans alike were wondering why the Marquee at Yankee Stadium read Nightmare in The Bronz before the start of last nights' game, between the Mariners and the Yankees. What started as a regular ole' ballgame turned into a Horror film. When JJ Putz took the mound in the bottom of the ninth, the clouds opened and the rains poured, as if The Bambino himself was upstairs and flipped a switch, as he has done so many times before. With no help from the guys in blue, who wanted to get this game in, they allowed the game to continue even though it was unplayable and this was evident by one and all. This is how things go in the Bronz. The Umpires who had 20/20 vision to start the game, suddenly cannot see worth beans, and their good judgement flew South to Capistrano for the Winter. On a big league play by Jose Lopez, where he caught the ball and belly flopped on his slip-n-slide into the outfield, which seemed like an eternity, got up and fired a strike to Big Ritchie that appeared to be the second out of the inning, but the bum in blue called him safe much to the delight of the rain soaked fans that remained. After the score was tied the game was called and a two hour rain delay began.

    After the rain delay, our new closer Julio Mateo was summoned from the bullpen and he gave up the game winning homer. Why Mateo ? Now, I like the guy, but come on. Didn't Grover have any left handers down there to face this guy ? sheesh ! Where are those Seahawk Season Tickets !

    In the first game of a weekend set Jamie Moyer gives up 6 hits, 8 runs, 7 earned, and 5 homeruns , over 4 1/3, while the bullpen gives 1 more the rest of the way, as the Mighty M's lose to Boston tonight 9-4. We have the bullpen of a championship team, too bad we have the offense and starting rotation of the Seattle Mariners . Starters for tomorrow's game are Kason Gabbard (0-0) for his first ever start for the Red Sox, and The Kid Felix Hernandez (8-8, 4.89) goes for the M's. If they are gonna take one in this series it should be tomorrow. Let's go M's

    If we could pick up a solid starter, and our offense stays consistant, we do have a championship team here.
    go M's/BSox

    There is no "I" in "team."
    But there is an "I" in "win."

    The Kid, Felix Hernandez, put in another solid outing today, giving up 4 hits and 2 runs over 7 complete, and the offense chipped in some runs as well today as the M's took the middle game 5-2. Hernandez looked really good today, as did this new kid Mark Lowe. He came in and pitched a perfect 8th and looked great doing it. Putz came in for the save. The other new kid Adam Jones looked awesome in centre field, making at least 2 very nice catches, and he even got a couple of hits today, and walked once in 4 trips to the plate. This team seems to be coming together nicely, although Beltre and Sexson were a disappointment at the plate again today, especially when they had runners in scoring position. I wish somebody could drill it into their heads that they don't have to swing at every pitch. Tomorrow the M's send Jarrod Washburn (4-10, 4.41) up against Jon Lester (5-0, 2.38) in the rubber match. One last note the M's came in 5 back of Oakland in the AL West and stay that way after the A's beat the Tigers 9-5 today.

    Lightbulb M's beat Redsox 9-8 and win the series 2-1

    The third game of the series with the Red Soxs was a roller coaster ride all the way. The score changed (7) seven times Sunday, and the M's where the last one standing after Big Richie's game winning homer in the bottom of the ninth. Beltre hit an inside the park home run to put the M's ahead in the eighth inning, which looked to be the game winner with ole' reliable JJ Putz getting ready. Beltre, who was jogging up the line watching his big fly turned on the afterburner when he saw the ball bounce off the wall. Dude can smoke around the bases, for sure. After JJ Putz gave up a homer to tie it, Sexton came up in the bottom of the ninth, and drove a 2-1 pitch to left for the game winner and the moose circled the bases toting the Mariner Flag. With the temperature on the field hovering in the triple digits and who knows how hot in the Moose outfit, the Moose deserves a tip of the cap and a cold one for the effort.


    The Blue Jays come to town for three games starting tonight. It's Piniero (6-8, 5.79) vs. Jannsen (6-9, 4.77).

    I am sorry if I sounded a little rude, thank you for correcting yourself. I was just an on-going theme, I was getting a little tired of it.

    Lightbulb M's Win First Game Of Series vs. Blue Jays

    Remember Sweet Lou believed in winning the first game of these three game series ? It is a big edge to do so. When you think about it, most teams travel from the East coast to play the M's, which is a long red eye trip, unless they are playing another West Coast team, in which case they have to fly up the coast. In any rate, this is a good idea to jump on them when they are down and out. When you win the first game of a series, you have a good shot at winning 2 of 3.

    I watch an early season game a few years ago, when Lou was at Tampa. Tampa was playing the Yankees, it was the first game of a series and the D-Rays were up like 7-2 or something in the sixth or seventh. Lou managed that game like it was the seventh game of the World Series; pushing buttons and finally bringing the closer in the game to wrap it up. The Yankees made a comeback but it fell short and the Rays won.

    Talking Mariners recall Snelling from Tacoma

    Mariners designated Carl Everett for assignment.

    Wow, didn't really see that coming, though it didn't seem like Everett was really playing up to the level they had hoped for when they brought him in.

    Aside from a couple walk-offs, Carl didn't contribute too much to the team.

    They brought up Chris Snelling. Personally, I think Carl was a bit of a hassle for the team. I would say that Perez at DH is better then what Everett was doing.

    I like what I've seen of Perez so far ok, though I don't expect anything spectacular.

    Broussard for Choo

    the Mariners acquired left-handed-hitting first baseman Ben Broussard and cash considerations from the Cleveland Indians for Minor League outfielder Shin-Soo Choo and a player to be named later.

    Talking Chris Snelling

    You got to like Chris Snelling. He plays hard. He can play all the outfield positions and he can hit. He's got some big league experience and started some playoff games way back when, before he got the injury bug. I think everyone is pulling for him.

    What's Up With Choo ?

    The Mariner Syndrome continued Friday night at the Jake. Shin-Soo Choo hit the game winning home run off King Felix on a 3-0 pitch that looked to be up and away. He drove it the other way. It turned out to be the only run Cleveland needed. The M's wasted a great outing by the King. We have seen it before, where a Mariner player gets traded and does well or in this case, comes back to haunt his old mates.

    But, just to add to the irony, Ben Broussard returned the favor and got us a HR the next game .

    Lightbulb Woods Gets the Win in relief...

    as the M's offense explodes late to brake open a close game and the Mariners take 2 of 3 from the Indians. Piniero kept it close for seven (7) innings giving up just three runs. Sexson (23rd) had a homer, Beltre (28th) and Ibanez (23rd) each had a double and Lopez went 3-5 with a two out RBI to power the M's. The Mariners have won two series in a row. They fly into Baltimore for three with the Birds, just three (3 1/2)and a half games back in the divison.

    Lightbulb It ain't over til it's over

    As of 6-19-06

    East: Boston .582

    Central: Detroit .657

    West: Oakland .551

    Wild Card: Chicago .638
    NY .567
    Texas .543
    Toronto .536
    MINN .500
    Seattle .479

    As Of Today, 8-1-06

    N.Y. Yankees 61 41 .598 -
    Chi. White Sox 62 42 .596 -
    Minnesota 61 43 .587 1
    Toronto 57 48 .543 5
    L.A. Angels 54 51 .514 8
    Seattle 52 53 .495 10
    Texas 52 54 .491 11

    What a difference six weeks make. On 6-19, the White Sox were playing (.638) ball and about seventy points ahead of the Yankees (.567) in the Wild Card Race. Today, the Yankees are playing (.598) ball and lead the White Sox (.596) by percentage points. Minnesota was a five hundred club six weeks ago and now they are one (1) game back in the Wild Card. The Yankees have improved with trades and will be getting guys back from injury. The Chi-Sox appear to be fading fast. Six weeks ago was when that Ozzie - Marriotti thing blow up and the Sox have been going down hill since then. The Mariners are ten games back in the wild card but just 3 1/2 games back in the divison. They just hopped over Texas into third place two games behind second place LA Angels. The M's are gaining confidence and they believe they can beat anyone. Winners of three series in a row, the Mariners have control of there own destiny. Yee Haw !

    Lightbulb Big Ritchie Sexson hits a game winning grand salami...

    and the M's beat the D-Rays 5-1. After getting spanked by Oakland in a three game series, the Mariners have rebounded nicely, with two in a row against Tampa. Sexson's game winning Grand Slam is his fourth this year and 13th of his career, just ten away from the all-time leader Lou Gehrig (23). The M's go for the sweep today.

    Oakland continues to win.

    Mark Lowe, has now pitched a total of 17 2/3 scoreless innings to begin his major league career, including 2 great innings last night, striking out 2, with no hits or walks.

    So far, he has given up 8 hits, 7 walks (.849 WHIP), 1 HBP, struck out 20 (10.2 SO/9 IP), and given up 0 runs (Earned OR Unearned) in these 17 2/3 innings. And he was clocked in the triple digits TWICE in last nights game!!! Opponents have a line of: .125/.250/.161 against him.

    Now I'm not sure, but I believe that this is the longest scoreless streak to begin a career - I'll have to get back to you on that one though, unless someone else knows for sure.
