Mariners notebook: Cano looks back to 2008 struggles in effort to keep even keel as current slump deepens | Mariners Insider - The News Tribune
It’s bad enough to pay a huge contract to a free agent. It really sucks when that guy doesn’t produce like you hope, which, of course, happens most of the time.
From what I have seen, the hardest thing for Mike Zunino is making consistent contact.
This guy must be a Primate. OK, fess up!
To show they take these things seriously, MLB needs to suspend Matusz for a quarter of the season!!!
Time flies like an arrow—but Enrique Hernandez flies like a banana.
There aren’t very many switch-hitters any more. Except, of course, for the guys who still do it. If I have some time later, I’ll put together the numbers.
A short version this week.
The OMNICHATTER 500

Aaron Barrett proudly displays his Star-Spangledtude.
Stenosis? I hardly know her.
Not an attractive pairing.
Replacing eight games with eight extra days off makes no sense to me.
Come, Bob Watson, come! The game is afoot!
bb-ref has Ruth at 2214 RBI. If you ignore everything before 1920, it becomes 1990 RBI. So it would seem that they’re ignoring everything before 1920 and have two extra RBI unaccounted for. Maybe they came from the same game as Ty Cobb’s two extra ...Read More...
No Vin Scully?
The Rays don’t seem to be attracting much notice this season and I wanted to highlight them. They lost their GM and manager during the offseason, traded away various players including ones who had been a key component of the team in the past, and didn’t make any big splashy free agent signings (as usual). Things haven’t been easy during the season either as Alex Cobb went out for the year without throwing a pitch, Drew Smyly only made three starts before going on the DL and is out for at least ...Read More...
The Amazing OMNICHATTER
Who else do people want him to be, Buddy Biancalana?
Nothing new, but who doesn’t like reading about Mantle and Maris?
Tribe considered Saturday reunion for Yan Gomes, Corey Kluber, but the catcher must wait until Sunday: Cleveland Indians notes | cleveland.com
Gomes is back on Sunday. Play him if you got him.
When I read the headline, I didn’t think it was a big deal. Committing to the event and not showing up, however, is weak.

Come for the arrogance:
Stay for the random shots at A-rod, who had ...Read More...
I will always remember calling the Baseball Weekly offices to try and get an answer to a baseball question about playoff tiebreakers. When the person who answered the phone didn’t have the answer, he said, “Let me get Paul.” I was surprised when Paul turned out to be Baseball Weekly’s editor, Paul White. We then had a very nice conversation about the MLB playoff tiebreaker, Baseball Weekly, and baseball in general. I appreciated his time. I have always appreciated his writing. Enjoy your ...Read More...
