Mariners blog

Daily coverage of the Mariners during the season and all year long.

M’s need a snowstorm quick

Well, now.
To the question of how the Mariners would respond to their five-day layoff we appear to have an answer:
Poorly.
As I write this, the Mariners trail 8-1 in the top of the fourth, and Josh Beckett is making quick work of them. Except for a brief flurry in the third, when Kenji Johjima single, moved to second on Yuniesky Betancourt’s double, and scored on Jose Lopez’s ground out, they haven’t had a baserunner.
Jeff Weaver, in the process of giving up seven runs in his two innings of work, looked like a guy who hadn’t pitched in a game in six months, rather than 10 days.
He walked Boston’s leadoff hitter, Julio Lugo, on four pitches, and went downhill from there. Weaver threw a mind-boggling 47 pitches in the first inning, going to three balls on seven of the nine men he faced. The second inning wasn’t much better, capped by J.D. Drew’s two-run homer. By the time he left after two, mercifully giving way to newly called up Jake Woods, Weaver had thrown 70 pitches in his two innings
