Smoak had been dealing with soreness in his quad for over a week and the Mariners could no longer play a man short. Willie Bloomquist was filling in at first base for the M’s. Now that job falls to Morrison, who is making his first start since April 14 on Wednesday against the Yankees. He returns to a .150 batting average and .377 OPS. Smoak was hitting just .208/.282/.361. First base remains a mess in Seattle.

    The undead Tweeter. Just don’t put any mammary glands in the front rows of seats to distract him – he doesn’t like those very much.

    Time to end the Smoak experiment. As usual for the M’s, they won’t realize it until two years after everyone else. I love this team, but the ineptitude at the top is getting old.

    It appears, from the game tonight against the Yankees, that Logan Morrison while on the DL and down at Tacoma worked on his inability to swing a bat and hit a thrown baseball.

    Give Jesus Montero another shot

    Check out montero’s stats in Tacoma-he’s playing first base and hitting well. Time to pull him out of the dog house.
