Thanks for tuning in to the show! Right at the beginning, I went on a rant against the “Bobblehead” culture of some of the fans I saw mysteriously lined up outside Safeco Field hours before gametime.
We also discussed the red-hot Justin Smoak and I played a clip of Eric Wedge telling me why the No. 4 spot in the order feels different than No. 5 to many players. This was Wedge’s way of explaining why Smoak won’t bat fourth anytime soon.
Someone asked me why so many struggling Seattle hitters are seeing so many pitches in their at-bats and whether this is a good thing. Well, yes and no.
