    This is probably crazy talk, but it's the offseason so anything goes. Despite having Ackley and Franklin as possibilities at 2B, should the M's entertain the idea of Seager at 2B and look to add a...

    If nothing else, I'd like to move Raul to open up the spot to someone who might be here next year.
    Raul simply should not be patrolling our OF. He should be a DH and a DH only. With Morse and...

    On a better team, I feel he should bat 2nd. With this current get up of guys, I think Seager should be 4th or 5th. Batting him second takes away an opportunity to drive in runs early in the game IMO....

    Unrelated to any on going discussion, but I still feel optimistic (I know, dumb) about some of the guys I've seen this year. A lot of the dead weights / questionable guys on this roster either have...

    I love how so few entertained the idea of Montero being way over rated and that we should have tried moving him in the off-season. It's amazing how since then he has managed to seem even less...

    Bold- Seager improves on last year's performance.

    Bolder- An M's pitcher other than Felix pitches a no-hitter.

    Boldest- Mariners finish 2nd in AL West.

    I think baseball still thinks what the general public thinks. "Closer fences, more home runs, more runs." Which just hasn't been shown to be true. But then again, the organization is probably just...

    If Guti gets better from the fences coming in, so does every other CFer. I would argue, whatever advantage Guti was going to give us, is now going to be less than it would have been originally or...

    I would assume the points represent where the ball was fielded, whether caught or fielded. That or it's a mistake.

    Montero didn't last year. I always heard it being said that Montero had opposite power, but I never saw it in the Safe last year.

    Everything hit that way last year was an out. And no HR's to...

    The one good thing being done, albeit minor, is the moving of the hand operated scored board. It makes it slightly easier to hit HR's in the LF corner while not forfeiting any ground to the left...

    Aside from HR and ISO numbers, the NL was the superior league offensively in 2012. Over 800 more runs scored, for example. In total, NL batters were more valuable by 74.2 WAR. The NL has had a...

    You're right, it's fair to question Jaso's 2012, but IMO it stemmed from his astounding ability to draw walks. While that may not be his bat, it is him getting on base.

    By comparison, Morse, since...

    This is based solely on his 2011 season, correct? Otherwise, it's from seasons where he wasn't healthy enough to play in more than 102 games.

    I don't think the issue is what Jaso's role would be, now or in the future, it's the fact that Jaso is underrated/undervalued. Catchers in general are valuable. If we were going to trade him fine, I...
