M’s Should Focus On Pitching, Defense

We’re boring down on February, the free agent market for hitters has nearly dried up entirely and the Mariners continue to be tied to Nelson Cruz. Why? Maybe because the reporters are just connecting dots; the Mariners need offense and Cruz and Morales are two of the very best options available that could make some kind of difference. Maybe the Mariners have legitimate interest in Cruz. Why? I haven’t the foggiest.

Not Bad for the New Guy: Thames Hits Walk-Off Hit

The Mariners were all even with the Rays after Justin Smoak’s sacrifice fly off of Fernando Rodney in the ninth inning, who came into the game with a 0.82 ERA and the AL lead in saves. Chone Figgins stood on third, and Eric Thames fell into an 0-2 hole. Thames took a pitch and then focused on low and away. He was able to flip Rodney’s next changeup into short right field to score Figgins and snap the two long streaks.
