Paging the Shufflebot!!!!
you forgot to enter “911” in the pagers text
Um, actchewelly let me tell you why you shouldn’t be so happy about beating the snot out of a team you hate….
One word. Oligerch… I mean gark… ummm. Kyle Seager.
Who’s on the bump tomorrow?
Suarez is scheduled to go. Cross fingers!
We all do the bump tomorrow!
Just as long we don’t bump into that Michael Mayers guy. hes one scary SOB.
It IS almost October…
😂 Quit cattle-prodding the old fella.
Now…..let’s sweep the MoFos!!
meanwhile … in seattle:
We’re wasting Rengifo and Soto.
Thank you, Arte!
Renowned talent evaluator Arte Moreno!
Yes, as everyone here knew.
How dare anybody complain about such a brilliant mind.
Seriously though, there might be something to Rengifo that other teams see and want. IIRC, it wasn’t just the Dodgers that wanted him in trade packages/proposals. If we’re finally seeing “it,” then good for the team. One less hole to fill.
Even so… never made sense that it Ren-buffo who held up the deal. Stripling + Pederson was certainly worth more than him alone at the time. Wasn’t there also a PTBNL the Angels were supposed to include? Always figured it was Adell or Marsh and that’s why Artie put the kibbosh on it.
It wasn’t even a PTBNL. The deal was set, it looked like it was Rengifo and “prospect/s” and then the deal got held up by the Doyers…. and stayed held up…. and then it got squashed by Arte. It’s likely the Dodgers changed their ask for the prospects, but we don’t know.
Thing is, if we (or any other FO, had a trade set up with a team to the point that the trade makes MLBTR and then the other team says “Hold on a minute…. actually hold on for as long as we want to take…. actually we want something else….” and then it turned out that the prospects we traded came up good (or Rengifo did what he’s done this year), we’d be super pissed about that too. Especially if you include the salary added by Joc and Ross, which isn’t huge (about 11M total) but we already have ish on that score without that added.
Pederson costs money and provides 0.8 and -0.1 and -0.3 WAR over the last two years. We would have been pissy as hell over 2020-21 Stripling.
It’s just not that big a “miss” for us…. unless you just NEED it to be.
Detmers and Rengifo are absolute revelations in the second half.
Congrats to Soto on his debut HR!
Soto. 1.750 OPS. Obviously the next A Rod sans roids.
Stretch his time in MLB to a full season and he leaves Judge is the dust.
I think Detmers has been on the whole year expect a couple of stints after his no-no
I saw “stinks” lolz
His start before this last one was meh. But yeah, he’s not CONSISTANT yet, but he’s developing and he’s off to a really good start this first MLB season.
This is the kind of first full season I expected from Detmers, no-hitter notwithstanding. Some good starts with some stinkers in between, but overall pretty well for a rookie. Hopefully he gets better in his 2nd year and stays healthy. I see him as #3 after Sandy. It would be good if he could be pushed down because of an ace pitcher acquired in the offseason. But that is a pipe dream at this point. Anyone who expected him to be Clayton Kershaw out of the gate is ridiculous.
The post game summaries are just excellent. I really appreciate the time and energy that goes into them.
Thanks. It means a lot. Now for the sweep!
Did someone say “Plethora” to you?
I know SSS and all but how terrible does Tooty-Two’s take on Livan Soto look at this exact moment??? HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHA
Gilbert vs Suarez tomorrow, Suarez a little rocky in the daytime and Gilbert is not. Challenging but let’s do it!
Swept the Ms!!!! How sweet!!!!
We might even get to sweep them again tomorrow.
Ack! Didn’t realize this was a four-game series! D’oh!!
We will need to scratch out some runs early since we consistently crash and burn against the opposition’s bullpen . We also need Loup, Wantz, Quesadilla & Herget to come up big in f we have any chance of a sweep.
hint: Soto, Rengifo & Quijada. Congrats to Venezuela today.
Sweep tomorrow would work.
Just so fun to affect M’s playoff chances
I’m still laughing at DD’s post.
Seattle has a very soft schedule remaining. Still have to play the games. Hoping for the collapse.
Yeah and we are part of that soft sched
Dancing on Dipoto’s and Mariner fans heart!
Small sampling of tears to taste:
Paratroopa is just not a happy camper today, lol.
If I could give you a thousand thumbs up I would
Ha ha ha. Love the tears !
Makes me think of that Southpark clip somebody posted here last yr or yr before…
Scott Tenorman’s Tears!
Is Tenorman a higher octave compared to Bassman?
Only the Second Bassman.
That’s Cold on a hot day.
