    Absolutely love the guys glove, but he needs to start hitting.
    Gave away too many AB’s last year. Gets into too many bad counts early in AB’s.
    Hoping last year was an anomaly, as he hit decent in the minors.

  • They sent down Kelenic despite him leading the team with over a 1.200+ OPS.
    What a joke of a franchise, still a bunch of clowns playing arbitration games with their top prospect.

    They think this will save them a year of service time, but in all actuality will cost them any chance of extending the original contract as you just pissed him off, and they will have to trade him a year or 2 early to get anything of value back instead of letting he walk via free agency when his original contract is up.

    ....and they wonder why they are the only team in MLB baseball to never appear in the World Series.

    Play stupid games win stupid prizes.

    Had they just put him on the team..It doesn't mean he would have extended
    anything and He hasn't proved anything yet so we have years before we
    say it was a dumb move either way.
    It is only for what?14 or 21 days ect He's still coming up very soon and I
    hope he wins rookie of the year.

    Normally I wouldn’t bat an eye about a prospect being upset but this guy is going to be a flat out stud.

    You don’t piss guys like that off. Kelenic’s the ultimate competitor, those guys don’t forget who they think may have screwed them over. IMHO for the reasons I stated in the previous post the Mariners just shortened his career here in Seattle when think they are lengthening it. They will have to trade him 2 years before his contract is up tor let him play out his contract and get nothing when he leaves. They are pretty much eliminating any shot at a contract extension, which Kelenic has stated if you read between the lines.

    The Mariners said if he would have signed a Evan White type pre major league extension he would have been called up last September.

    So he would have been deemed “ready” if he signed that deal, but is not ready NOW and has “stuff to work on” despite leading the team in OPS. That is called “playing games”.

    He led the team in OPS, yes it was a small sample size, but to say he didnt earn a spot over Fraley, Majomos, or Bishop is false (not saying you said this). Especially with Lewis being out, there is no reason for Kelenic NOT to be starting opening day.

  • I never understand the Mariners front office. They were stingy from the mid-90s onward. Then they offered a 2nd baseman (should be one of your absolute cheapest positions) a ridiculously expensive deal. And then they go back to being stingy. Would have been nice to have spent some money on the Big Unit.

    They are cheap in certain areas (see not trading for Dave Justice in late 2001 who got traded to the yanks and killed us in the playoffs) but then spend money like a drunken sailor on the over the hill fan favorites like Dan Wilson and Jamie Moyer (whom I both liked). Then they over pay on Kyle Seager.

    They are horrible on HOW they spend their $$$.

    Yes they were. This group IMHO is equally inept when it comes to common sense though for the reasons I described, with the exception of rebuilding a farm system which they have excelled at.

    You don’t piss off your potential superstars by playing arbitration games, then insult the other top prospect by criticizing his English speaking abillity, and then b!@ch about paying $70,000 a year for an interpreter for your Japanese ball players. That was done by this FO/ownership team.

    Don’t be surprised when Kelenic says he won’t sign an extension with Seattle and they end up having to trade him 2 years to go on his contract in order to get any value back.

    I really want to love this team with no reservations but the FO/ownership is making it very hard to do so with the stupid $h!t they say and do.

    I think they were so excited that Kyle was the only player from amongst a group of young players who actually developed (Ackley, Franklin, Miller, etc). Add insult to injury, because, it turns out that the organization was a systematic failure in this department at all levels, because, Smoak and Taylor went to other teams, and became solid players. Even Zunino has managed not to suck in TB.

    That’s another reason I’m pissed on how they are handling the Kelenic situation, we finally have a guy that’s going to be a “stud” coming from our farm system (yes I know he was drafted by the Mets), and IMHO they just shortened his time as a mariner as I’d be shocked if he signs an extension after this. ....and when you trade a superstar in his prime, you never get anywhere close to his value back.

    The only shining sliver of hope he stays is that the Mariners have a ton of success (see winning a World Series) with this young crop of players that enjoys playing together so much they want to stay together and the Mariners don’t Penny pinch their way back to mediocrity. The Mariners are banking on this severe long shot, that is unlikely to happen.

    I hope I’m wrong, but it’s not likely.

    If we're lucky, the new leadership will be able to sweet talk him with the whole, "our direction and money offers does not reflect the idiots who preceded us," spiel.

    They will have 4 young stud outfielders they can interchange (Kelenic, J-rod, Lewis, and Trammel).

    I've spent years believing that immediate success would follow the departure of Lincoln and Armstrong. I am still committed to that belief, despite the hiring and firing of a complete asshat for CEO.

    Top of the 5th, 4-0, Giants.

    The Mariners are still a work in progress. Young team, one of their best players Lewis is on the DL, and their best prospect is stupidly in the minors for 15 games while the Mariners play idiotic arbitration games with him.

    Get Lewis back and call Kelenic up in a couple of weeks and the line up will be much stronger.

    Yep. I'd love to see a game where the prized pitcher from Japan doesn't get lit up. No more excuses for him trying to get used to MLB pitchers. At some point we just need to realize if he's actually good or not. Kikuchi was extremely underwhelming last year and looked equally so in preseason.

    He’s hit 97 on the gun tonight, pitching well so far.
    His problem is the mental side of pitching, and avoiding the big inning.

    The only competently run period in Mariners history was when Piniella and Gillick were running things... and they had to answer to Tweedle Dee Lincoln and Tweedle Dum Armstrong.

  • It’s early, but they need to start scoring runs. Lewis bring out hurts and them dicking around by not bringing up their best prospect, are 2 big bats missing from the line up. It’s a long season but if they miss the playoffs by a game or 3 you can point to this.

  • Thanks to T-Mobile/Sprint, I got MLB.tv for free for the season so I'm able to watch M's games again. Tonight's pitcher looks really good so far. 5 innings, 4 hits, 0 runs.

  • I’m starting to think Sheffield is your typical over-rated yankee prospect.
    Not impressed.

    Yep. Hasn't impressed me really, either. It was a red flag when he was struggling in Tacoma, then got demoted to Arkansas and continued to struggle.

  • Well boys, the hitting ineptitude we've come to know so well here in Seattle was on full display tonight. That was an embarrassment and tough to watch.

    It's not fair to Kelenic and not best for the team at the moment but i'll wait 15 games when he's young to have another free year when he's older. There needs to be some kind of rule change so teams aren't able to do this to players though.
