Shhh, dont let it out

But the Mariners pulled one off. Yes, the M's won 3-2 over the Orioles in the bottom of the ninth. Beltre scored on an RBI from Mike Morse. It was a close game, with plenty of excitement. I would give this game a B+, based on how it came down to the wire.

Moyer pitched a good game, keeping them down to 10 hits (bad) and 2 runs (good). JJ Putz didn't blow the save, so all in all, it was a pleasant experiance. I won't get excited until a win streak lasts for more than six games. Then I'll get excited. That is the kind of momentum and motivation the boys need to come together to realize that the Mariners ARE a team.

Jose Lopez, I'm sorry to say you just made the BA watch list. When does Betancourt get to come out and play? Couldn't they move Morse over to second? I realize it takes 'five years' to get the stink of Utility Player off of you, but Bloomquist is showing real promise. Maybe Winn should be offered up for some pitching. Give Willie his position in the OF. Nothing personal against Randy, he's doing a helluva job. Right now, he's the only good trade bait we have to offer up. Then give Lopez either a utility player job, or offer him up for trade too. I don't have a problem with Lopez either, we just need this 2nd baseman voodoo spell to be squashed.
