Lou Pinella's cleat-dusted hat: Roenis Elias (.388 WPA)

Bobby Valentine's fake moustache: Justin Smoak (-.057 WPA)

In what was perhaps the weirdest game of the entire 2014 campaign, the Mariners threw out a rookie pitcher from AA who pitched a complete game shutout against the team with the highest average in the American League, watched their struggling shortstop hit a home run off the reigning Cy Young winner, wrung valuable production out of two 36-year old veterans despite both trying a double steal early in the game, and now head into June at .500.

QUESTIONS:

1. Ideal July rotation after this Elias performance:

2. Without rosterbating, who do you hope the M's realistically have an eye on around the trade deadline?

3. Does Elias have a nickname already? If not, what should it be?
