Ragball: Spring Training is Serious Business

13

It's times like these I think that it's good to remember, in spite of injuries, in spite of various players seeming to underperform, in spite of all the questions I can ask about the construction of the 25-man, I still kind of love this team. "Milton Bradly managed one team and wound up throwing first base. Chone Figgins managed the other team and engineered a late trade - catcher Adam Moore for 7-year-old Teven Griffey. Ichiro Suzuki swung right-handed. Casey Kotchman played shortstop, Mike Sweeney left field and at one point Eric Byrnes stormed off the field calling the proceedings 'a mockery of the game!'" ----- "The Mariners staged an odd ragball game on the half field in Peoria, with rules that included running from home plate to third base - not first - after a hit, batting from the opposite side and bribing umpire Josh Bard. That last part was key: Bard ruled a Franklin Gutierrez home run did not count because Gutierrez hadn't stepped on home plate - after he clearly had. And, with Bradley's team ahead, 7-2, in the final inning, Sweeney hit a solo home run - then called in five pinch-runners and circled the bases for a six-run home run."

To blatantly steal a joke from Lookout Landing, you're a loser if you had former Mariner Carlos Silva(notes) in your Cubs chair breaking pool

Someone cares, certainly, but no one should be surprised in this. More cuts probably on the way after we get done with the last split-squad game of the Cactus League season.

Tom Tango Needs Your Help - 2010 Fan Projection Surveys for Playing Time

7

Take five minutes and tell Tom Tango how much playing time you think each of our beloved Mariners will get. It's a nice little way of saying "thank you" to Tango, who, as Dave said, invented half the cool stuff at FanGraphs and, as a consultant to the M's, helped create our new statistical analysis office. For some extra motivation, Royals Review is beating us 20-1 in submitted surveys right now. This will not stand.
