Muni being Muni for 14 minutes

I wish I could just cut out everyone but Muni. His answers would be just as funny and make just as much sense if he were talking to himself.

Good wishes (and maybe some hard cash) for Jason Paschal

Lookout Landing poster seattle_since_81, a big Mariners (and Seahawks and Sonics and Sounders and Huskies and ...) fan is currently fighting cancer. Treatment hasn't progressed as fast as we could hope, and sadly, it isn't cheap. Some friends have set up a Give Forward fund for him, linked above. If you can contribute, please do. Anything at all will help Jason -- plus, good karma!

Altoona Curve "Awful Night"

+

As part of the Sabermetrics 101 course I am taking through Boston University, I happened across the existence of the Altoona Curve. I was reading their wikipedia page and learned that every year they have an "awful night" (akin to Felix train night or the bobble head nights) and that in one particular instance, the first x number of fans received pictures of the general manager's gall bladder.

Tony Blengino loves him some Felix.

Very nice in-deep analysis of his '14 success so far.

Have the Mariners been able to draft and develop good players?

This is only the draft, so we're not seeing the players that were acquired internationally. Just based on drafted players, the M's come out looking pretty good in this analysis, which is kind of surprising considering that this includes the Bavasi drafts. In particular, look most of the way down the page at the chart "MLB WARP by drafting team, 2010-14". I like that chart, as it presents the total contribution by M's draftees by wins, and includes a spread of years, rather than a short period, like one year only.

Muni's Dancing for his Birthday

Self explanatory. I miss Muni.

Lone Star Ball is getting a little obsessed with Kyle Seager

5

400+ comments in their latest game thread, and 25% of them are discussing what anti-Seager slogan to put on a t-shirt. My favourite: "Kyle Seager only pretends to like geoducks"

Kyle Seager in deep thought.

"Wunder wut the op'sit of fried green maters is"
