Is anyone else sick and tired of losing to mediocre teams? Is there any fire at all in the Mariner's clubhouse. Is the smell of ben-gay on the bench affecting the eyesite of our hitters? What is the F-ing problem?

Do we need to replace Don Baylor, the hitting coach? It's quite obvious that his short course for Boone was a complete failure. By the way Boone, you play for the fans just as much as you 'play' for everyone wearing that uniform.

Let's face it you fail everytime you come to the plate. Why don't you be a man and ask to go down to Tacoma for awhile to get your head straight. If you are as concerned as you play off to be, you would do the right thing, and give Lopez his shot. I just have to wonder if you feel guilty cashing that fat check knowing that you have the worst Batting Average on the team. Nine million this year for a has-been. It's not 2001, and we should have traded you two years ago. It's almost expected that runners will be stranded when you come to the plate. Is that part of the deal that gave you the nine million this year. Here is an observation of mine.....quit hitting for the fence. You don't have it in you anymore.....try for the single. It works for Ichiro, why can't it work for you? Is it your ego? For someone that is going to be a free agent at the end of the year, you aren't exactly making a good prospect of yourself. Maybe Lou will feel sorry for you and invite you down to Tampa. That's if he doesn't get out of there, and go to NY and take Torre's spot. I wish to God he'd come back to the Emerald City and make it happen.

Anyways, in conclusion it seems that the following needs to happen;
Don Baylor gets fired,
Boone goes down to Tacoma,
Lopez takes over 2nd Base,
Bring in some GOOD pitching.

I'm just sick...................

As much fun as it would be to see that ego get demoted, and have to pack his own bags in AAA ball, Boone won't get sent down - he's enough of a veteran that he has refusal rights, so he can refuse a demotion.

He'll either get traded or DFA'd, which both have the proper outcome of a Boone-less clubhouse.

I know he has refusal, I just wish his 'egoness' (made that up all by myself) would take himself out.
