It's been nice to see Justin Smoak improve at the plate. He leads the team in OBP and that's great but I am still a skeptic.
2B Nick Franklin has zoomed by 1B Smoak's RBI total even though Smoak has played half again as many games. Good for Franklin but not good production from our 1B slot! Smoak is still hitting too many Pete O'Brien warning track flyballs.
Where is Mariner-world on our erstwhile First Baseman?
