Mariners release Byrnes send Tuiasosopo down

Well its a start. I just learned the Mariners have released Eric Byrnes, I wish him well. Also Matt Tuiasosopo has been sent down to AAA Tacoma. The Mariners are bringing up infielder Josh Wilson and Outfielder Ryan Langerhans. While neither of these two players bring with them the Long Ball threat, this is a move in the right direction.

  However more needs to be done to shake-up this team. I would like to see Figgins and Lopez go back to their natural positions, and while were switching lets switch Figgins to lead-off and bat Ichiro second. Sweeney is on a short-leash as well and if we can get Jermaine Dye for 2-3 million let’s do it, at least until Bedard comes back then trade one or two of our starters for a genuine home-run hitter.

  Hopefully the weather here in Seattle will warm up at the end of the week and with it our bats! I look for something else big to happen this week as the honeymoon for Jack Z. is over too.

  1. No HR in 60 innings are you kidding me? OMG our little peewee team is hitting better and we are in LAST PLACE! People pay to see hits and I am not sure but it sounds like we may loose the Mainers to Oklahoma City as well…

    • Steve ,welcome aboard. I will adress your comment on the Blog….Jeff

      • Steve, Love the Oklahoma city comment! One good thing about an off-day is it gives one a chance to gain some perspective. and the reality is we are only 2 games out of first in the AL West, We just made a couple moves and I have a feeling the GM Jack Z. is working on something else that will answer some more of our concerns. Again welcome aboard Steve! Jeff

  2. I hope our amazing pitchers don’t get too discouraged by the ridiculous lack of run support. Why would they play for a team with minimal offense when they can take the free agent route to a stronger hitting team? The Yankees can sign anyone they want too not only because of their budget, but because a free agent pitcher knows he’s going to have 8 solid hitters playing with him on the field. That’s a huge consideration.

    • Mike, This is starting to look like the old days in the Kingdome. Care to write  a guest spot on the Blog ? Love to involve you. It is actually quite helpful to have a place to put all ones thoughts down then shoot them out to the world! Jeff
