Ah. Well... I attended Juilliard... I'm a graduate of the Harvard business school. I travel quite extensively. I lived through the Black Plague and had a pretty good time during that. I've seen the EXORCIST ABOUT A HUNDRED AND SIXTY-SEVEN TIMES, AND IT KEEPS GETTING FUNNIER EVERY SINGLE TIME I SEE IT... NOT TO MENTION THE FACT THAT YOU'RE TALKING TO A DEAD GUY... NOW WHAT DO YOU THINK? You think I'm qualified?

A Fan Of...

  • NCAAB Washington St. Cougars
  • Golf Vladimir Guerrero. Never seen a guy golf so much.
  • NASCAR Rednecks going in circles. I can get the same thing watching them chase their tails.
  • MMA Jet Li's arms, Bruce Lee's legs, Jean-Claude Van Damme's body, Steven Segal's ponytail, Chuck Norris' beard.

Ah, there's the little bit of "Jerk Zduriencik" that people have been reporting on. I can deal with this.

From now on, if someone uses the word "a" it must be at least seven words from the word "jax".

So you reacted irrationally to an irrational claim. I get it, but there are certainly enough reasons for people to justify Jack Zduriencik not keeping his job.

Not really how this works. Skalv is the one who needs to make his case as to why he thinks Fail Forward's comments are stupid.

Except whatever math we want to use is irrelevant. The Mariners decide their own budget and what counts against that. If they say all the incentive money + the insurance stuff counts against their budget as part of the payroll, then it does.

Or maybe he did recover, but that injury he sustained earlier this season was worse than anybody thought. He might still be hurting now.

Your original comment states that Lloyd would have to answer for this tactical decision on Rodney or Medina.

Nope. All balls, all swung at.

Well, let's see... Lloyd used him for only 4 pitches. So i would have to say "yeah, I think Lloyd was comfortable using him but not letting him throw 30 pitches."

Brooks tells a much different story. My eye test agrees with this. Those pitches were high and that last one was borderline at best.
Commented on Mariners can't even lose properly, defeating Orioles, 4-3 on Jul 26 2014, 10:01p
Can't review it anyway. Check swings are one of those magically ambiguous things that umpires get to hang onto as their precious.

Yeah, he was doing fine in the first two innings, then went fucking nuts with the strikezone in the 3rd.

The 3rd strike was borderline, just like the one that got called on Jones.

Okay, NOW you have a strikezone beef. That's a damned borderline pitch that could have gone either way.

Not this bad. Do that math real quick and it is a .160 average wRISP. And this isn't regression, this is the opposite of the "cluster luck" we were doing earlier.

It's because they're already in the 10-15 window. So either give them the full 15 or they're off now.
