Mariners home test

Just when you thought that road trip was tough, here come the New York Yankees. Interesting that the Yanks, faced with more pitching woes than the Mariners, found a way to send the struggling Kei Igawa down to Class A ball after investing $46 million in him ($26 million on the posting fee, another $20 million on his salary). They’re using the guys they think can help them win now, starting with Darrell Rasner, due to start tonight against Jarrod Washburn.
Looks like they still keep giving up a ton of runs. The M’s split that series in New York. Let’s see if they can win one here. It won’t get any easier, with the Angels and their pitching arriving next week. But if the Mariners can take two of three from the Yanks, won’t that be a fun series next Tuesday to Thursday. I know it’s only May, but why not have some fun?
The A’s finally found some offense, just in time for Chris Snelling to suffer another knee injury. Hope it’s not serious, but hey, you never know with him.
As for Seattle’s other main AL West opponent, I warned you about this guy didn’t I? When he’s in there, he’s the best arm that team has. If he gets consistent run support, he wins 20 and contends for the Cy Young.
So, which Mariners team shows up this weekend? I’ll be very curious. One thing I do know, they’ll have their two best pitchers out there tonight and tomorrow. After that, Horacio Ramirez has tons to prove on Sunday. This team has to make some moves and putting Weaver in the bullpen may not be the only one if things don’t change soon.
But once again, at .500, they have bought themselves time to work things out. What a bizarre season do far. Got to catch my flight. Sitting in the Cleveland airport after transferring out of Detroit this morning.
