M’s - Release Spiezio

Seattle Mariners - Released 3B-1B Scott Spiezio.

Just as a note, Oracle updates will continue to be less frequent for the rest of this month as we move the database to a new format (this is the first blog that will be updated to BTF 2.0).

People may be disappointed with Adrian Beltre’s overall numbers for the Mariners, but compared to two previous “solutions” at 3rd, Jeff Cirillo and the player named above, he’s a godsend.  Spiezio has been hampered by injury this season, but when you go 3-for-47, you better have a more serious injury to blame than a strained oblique.  I have little doubt that Spiezio will show up on a roster again, if not this year, at the start of 2006 - there are simply too many teams that will too-positively remember his role with the Angels.

I admit I was looking forward to sarcastic Reuter comments, but I understand. Hope the transition goes smooth

Cirillo was having a nice turnaround in MIL this year til he broke some bone or something

47 AB? That should be enough to get him a strat-o-matic card. I like to make all-futility teams wit each year. This should be one of my favorite cards right up there with 2003 Jason Romano and 2004 Corky Miller.

No matter what he ever does or doesn't do in the majors, he still has maybe the greatest at bat in Angels history. Good luck, Spiez.

There is no way another team picks him up.

What odds would you like to bet against on that?

The Mets are still in the league, right?

Well, the last time I looked, Vinny Castilla was still holding down a MLB job.

I'd be surprised if another team picks him up for 2005, but I'd bet that someone will give him at least an NRI to spring training next year.

Secret Agent Spiezio did a great job of infiltrating and destroying the Mariners.

Spiezio always struck me as the major league player most likely to be totally high at any given moment. I don't know why, it must the the amused drone of his speech. He seemed like a really good guy, and I'd be pleased to see him turn it around somewhere.

I think it's probably because he's the lead singer of a hard rock band.
