  • So far this year that dumbass Bour from the Angels hs walked away from 2nd after he was called safe (granted he would have been out on review) and decided not to run out a pop up resulting in an inning ending double play.

    Covers a lot of ground in the field. Someone said he has a weak arm but I don't think I've seen that.

    He's struggling at the plate, but he missed all of spring training, so he's still warming up. I think he'll be a good center fielder going forward, or at least until Bishop and/or Kyle Lewis get called up.

    Great clubhouse guy. He is super fast that can cover the outfield. Sub par arm and sub par bat.

    Its early but his arm will always be sub par.

    Now we need some insurance runs.

    Instead he allows Kikuchi to get his first win. I know you hate the guy, but we are 16-8. The bullpen is full of guys we're still getting to know.

    I'm glad he left Yusei in. It'll help his confidence going forward. :irishdrinkers:

    The Angels have a pretty good team. Ball was really carrying today. Leake is kind of an all or nothing guy. Some days he can't be hit, other days he's throwing grapefruits up there. Hard to keep Trout down for 4 days in a row.

  • Mallex Smith is my most disliked Mariner in the past 10 years. He's surpassed Juan Nicasio, Chris Denorfia, Donn Roach, and Ketel Marte by a long mile. He can't hit for shit, has a very weak arm, and just gave away a 2 run HR. Very playable ball, but he let it bounce right out of his mitt and over the wall. Even if he somehow turns it around here, I won't even entertain the idea of eating my crow. I'll never change my mind about him.

    Meh, that's a bit harsh. Luckily we have a couple of OF in the minors now, so I'm willing to live with it for now.

    That was a bonehead play, TBS, but like they say fertilizer occurs. :229031_shrug:

    Actually think Swanson has some promise. And they finally sent Alanis down, thank dog.

  • Mallex has dropped quite a few balls. With his speed he should be a great fielder, but you just dont see him robbing base hits like you do other speedy outfielders, instead he just almost makes a great play then drops it. And he cant hit. Cant steal bases if you cant get on base. Useless.

  • That was a real gem from Gonzales, 7 scoreless, 9 Ks, no BBs.

    Nice to see the guys hitting at home finally. Kinda felt sorry for Hearn there. He walked into a buzz saw. :twisted:

    Will be interesting to see how tonight works out. Sheff has worked out of the bullpen before, and they have always planned to limit Kikuchi's innings because the Japanese season is much shorter than MLB and they tend to get 5 days rest instead of 4. Sounds like he won't go 2 unless he throws a 3 pitch first. ;)

    Apparently Servais was pretty emphatic when he said Sheff "won't throw 100 pitches." :)

    For the series, we've already stressed their bullpen. They put a backup catcher on the mound last night at the end.

    This was part of his plan from the beginning. They want to ease him in as many Japanese pitchers have been overworked early on in their careers.

    It was part of the selling point they made yo him and why he chose Seattle.

    Hes been fine early on

    Not sure about the stats, but that sounds like a season's worth for an average SS. He's on a pace for close to 70. :34853_doh:

    Smith can’t hit and field. Bishop up would be the common sense solution but if they do so they have to eat Smith’s salary (just under 600k). M’s ownership/management doesn’t like to do that this early is the season.

    Move was made this afternoon.

    Smith is still a player in AAA, unless he chooses not to travel. "As far as mechanics of the roster, if Mallex stays in Tacoma for 19 days or less, he won’t burn an option year, but that, while useful to note, is not terribly important to a player of this type." (LL)

    Bishop may not be a better hitter but is an elite fielder

    Found a Link for that. Mariners have a history of bringing guys up too fast. I hope this is not the case here. You could make an argument that Bishop can't be worse than Smith has been lately.
