Death Valley: Joe Saunders, -.537

Man, if anyone finds Lookout Landing's game coverage for the first time tonight, they are going to be incredibly confused by that chart. Sorry!

This game was predictably terrible! The Franklins really didn't acquit themselves well out there, combining for a -.269 WPA between them while batting first and third in the order. I'm getting ready for Nick to move out of the top two slots, and I'm not sure what Guti was doing in the #3 hole to begin with, so it certainly seems like this could've been avoided. Oh well. What's done is done.

Questions!

1) With today's Aaron Harang DFA and Franklin Gutierrez callup, the Mariners need to dump a position player for a new pitcher, soon. Who do you think it'll be: the recently-claimed-on-waivers Morales, the struggling Morse, or the expendable Endy?

2) Favorite non-alcoholic beverage?

3) Who would you like to see as the Mariners' fourth outfielder next season?
