So, again, it seems like your saying that paying more for Rodney now saves you money later on Farquhar

So that seems like you're saying that adding Rodney to this bullpen has made the bullpen better
Commented on 72-59: Everything is as it should be on Aug 27 2014, 3:42a
So the idea is that spending $14MM on Rodney over the next 2 years will save the M's money on Farquhar from 2017 to 2019, which may or may not be close to something like $14MM?

You'd prefer that Washburn be the GM instead of Zduriencik?

I think there might be some concern with the Mariners leadership that a multi-year contract may make the GM feel more secure in his job, leading to better long-term decision making

That's why I wrote that it probably matters more what Lloyd thinks than what would be a real consideration in the context of what would be the ideal decision for the team

Yes, right, and also how many hits they get, how often they're able to take a walk, how proficient they are on defense, how well they're able to take advantage of taking extra bases without getting caught

If the Mariners could ever get around three wins a season from Ackley, I'd consider that a very nice pleasant surprise

What he's trying to say is that while it would be ideal for your Loogy to face a majority of left-handed batters, it's hard to do in practice

Is it really a concern for them, to have a third catcher around on the very off-chance that they might need him?

Actually, I wouldn't have a problem with Ackley playing center if they needed that

Well, except that there's very very little chance that they'd ever need a third catcher

For all intents and purposes, as long as he's in the Mariners organization on August 31st, he can be used in the playoffs

Hernandez will likely pitch on the 12th, with Kuma going the following day, while the 26th would likely be a 5th starter, so it's anybody's guess right now
