Pathetic April 4, 2007

Posted by Administrator in Sports.

I’ve been to Safeco twice now, both times they have lost as tonight the M’s suffered the worst drubbing I have ever seen them take live, 9-0 at the hands of Oakland, pitcher Marc Harden (throwing 97 mph flames) and shortstop Mark Ellis, the #9 hitter who torched the Mariners for five RBIs.

Meanwhile, for the M’s, goats include Miguel Batista, the much maligned signee from Arizona, who frankly sucked all night, and I also got to see Jose Vidro, late of the Washington Nationals, suck the air out of two potential rallies by doing the GIDP dance, then the next time up feebly striking out. 

Out of the heart of the M’s line-up, Vidro, Jose Guillen, Adrian Beltre, Raul Ibanez and Richie Sexson, the only marginally bright spots appear to be Ibanez and Sexson.  The bottom third looks much better with catcher Kenji Johjima, Yuniesky Betnacourt and Jose Lopez.  Betancourt looks especially promising.

But I don’t see playoffs, or much better than a .500 season to be honest.
