Time for another rant. Let’s just focus on Sunday’s game against the Blue Jays. Former Mariner J. A Happ allowed only one hit to earn his 13th win of the season. Why is it that the M’s have Wade Miley instead of Happ???
Oh yes, and there’s Michael Saunders. OK, I’ll give you that he underperformed in Seattle, but for the Blue Jays, he’s hitting .287 with 19 home runs and an OPS of .913.
How do the M’s manage to do this so consistently? Just consider the team you could put together from the field of former M’s – Adrian Beltre, Adam Jones, Mark Trumbo, Ichiro, Shin Soo Choo, Jason Vargas, and I could go on and on.
