If it's just short term try and stick it out even if it starts going downhill, it's short term pain for a nice bump for your resume.

Fun fact: Darren O'Day has the 22nd best slider (relievers) on weighted runs above average in the game.

Yeah, coz it's real easy to lay off a same handed down and away slider close to the zone.

So because the bad comment he posted was not as bad as it could have been, it's okay?

You've got it, I'm also sure that the Mariners are the only team ever that have run out a platoon and had that hitter batting fourth.

Listed as a line drive, I've got no video.

Saving him for Montero I'd guess.

He did, that inning was just bad sequencing.

I don't think you can compare a nine pitch at bat with a blind squirrel.

I find your grasp of the definition of "guaranteed" disturbing.

If he can be 2004 Jack Wilson I'll be fucking ecstatic.

Didn't we have someone here at some point too?

He hasn't played the field since April 20.

We need him desperately.

I don't really mind him being on the team at this point given what the options are.

You don't even have to be pessimistic though.

Best in the majors - only 3.37 runs allowed per game.

Except we've scored 3.92 runs per game this season.

How do you know that ths scouting report didn't suggest that Cano was likely to get a slider there, and that he was sitting on it and just didn't execute?

I struggle with this though.

If he could just be a good defender in CF he would be so worth keeping on the roster.

There's no other "prototypical" 2-hole hitter in the lineup that hits right handed.

Yeah, I reckon he's only up until Morales gets here, unless they're going to dump someone else but that then would give us four 1B/DH types.

I'm guessing that the "loser" or Miller/Taylor goes down.

I mean purely switching out Jones for Almonte.
