While You Were Drinking 2014 (SD at LA)

Sometimes things can get a little fuzzy after a night at the pub.  Here’s a friendly reminder of what you may have missed while you were drinking. We had ourselves a good old-fashioned pitchers duel last night at Chavez Ravine.  Dodger Ace Clayton Kerhsaw no-hit the Padres for 5 2/3.  Tyson Ross was almost as good, allowing 3 Los Angeles baserunners, two of whom were erased...

Dugout Digest – good pitching Thursday was here in full force

I crack jokes every so often about “good pitching days”, when multiple starting pitchers light the world on fire. Yesterday was probably the most prime example of this – 15 of the 16 pitchers that got starts went at least six innings, and 14 of the 16 threw quality starts. We also had four complete games on the day, three of which came by pitchers that earned losses. Sometimes...

Padres Sweep Rockies In Slugfest

The Padres sure seem unstoppable right now. The offense is clicking, making up for the (very minor) shortcomings of pitching, and the defense has hung so many stars lately that you could make an accurate model of the Milky Way. Tonight's highlight is certainly Rymer Liriano's towering home run that not only hit the third deck of the Western Metal Building, but found it'...

In Austin Jackson, Mariners Land Decent Player and Massive Upgrade

In one of the smaller moves of the day, the Mariners dealt Abraham Almonte and another minor leaguer to the Padres for Chris Denorfia. It wasn’t a trade that caught much attention, because neither of the younger guys is of any real consequence, and Denorfia is a rental having a down season. It was just […]

In return, the San Diego Padres will receive OF Abraham Almonte, and RHP Stephen Kohlscheen. Denorfia has struggled this season, only slashing .242/.293/.319 with a wRC+ of 76, […]

Jones-ing For Steals

It's not even June and the Mariners are on their second leadoff hitter in James Jones. The 25-year-old center fielder has hit at the top of the Mariners lineup and looks to remain there for the foreseeable future. Yes, I copied and pasted that last sentence from the Abraham Almonte post. Jones has looked good though, hitting .306 with a .377 OBP in the twenty games since his...

One-Two Punch!  Jones and Saunders Hitting It Hard

Top of the Lineup Life At Last It wasn’t but two weeks ago I was writing about how the Seattle Mariners bats were struggling at the top of the order. What a difference a couple of weeks can make. With the continual strikeouts of Abraham Almonte now a seemingly distant memory, you have James Jones and Michael Saunders suddenly lighting up the box score at the top of the order. Michael...

Could James Jones Be The Answer At Center Field For The Seattle Mariners?

Lloyd McClendon’s patience with the lack of offense from center fielder Abraham Almonte came to an end a little over a week ago.  The .198 batting average, .248 on base percentage, and .292 slugging was at least temporarily sent to Tacoma in favor of James Jones. As this is Jones’ first year in the majors, Seattle Mariner fans should both be encouraged and excited while also...

Mariners option Almonte to Tacoma, plan to recall Jones

Center fielder Abraham Almonte’s ongoing struggles finally persuaded the Mariners that he requires a remedial tour at Triple-A Tacoma to get turned around. Almonte, 24, was optioned to the Rainiers after Sunday’s 8-7 victory over the Houston Astros at Minute Maid Park. The move came with him mired in a 4-for-37 slump that dropped his average to .198. “I told him, `I still...
