M's Happenings

Couple o things from recent M's Action:

1. Felix is human. A five run inning kinda ruins the start, but it was the only inning he gave up a run, so it wasn't a total disaster. Only 5 k's against 3 walks and just as many ground ball outs as fly outs. I guess he was distracted by the start of the NFL season too!

2. Jamal Strong broke his hand and is out for the rest of the season. Strong has a chance to be th 4th outfielder next year, but this doesn't really help at all. A bench of Morse, Strong, Ojeda and a free agent who can play 2nd and 3rd, would be a huge improvement over this year's bench. If we dropped down to 11 pitchers, there would even be room for Bloomquist!

3. The Rainiers made the PCL championship! Down 2 games to 0, the M's AAA club rallied to win the next three, needing 10 and 11 innings in the last two games. Asdrubal Cabrera hit .375 with 4 rbi in the series. Lopez has about a year to establish himself at second, or Cabrera will take the job from him.
