Bavasi Still Agrees with us

Sorry the blog has been so dark lately. That's what happens when one of the primary authors flies cross-country to spend two weeks with the other primary author.

But Jason is out of my hair and safely back in TN which means both he and I should be back to semi-regular blogging.

Did you catch this quote from our beloved GM on mlb.com?

"Our lineup is better," Bavasi said. "Our rotation is different. I'm not sure it's better, but it's different and it's certainly not worse.

That's just great. Since last year we've traded Choo, Cabrera, Soriano, Snelling, and Fruto. And we've moderately improved a lineup that was 13th in the AL in runs scored last year and made our rotation "different." Not better. A rotation that included Joel Piniero and Gil Meche and we haven't been able to improve on it?

Super. Just Super.

The Choo trade was on Hargorve, he didn't think it was 'appropriate' for an outfielder, to be taught on ' the job.' I personally witnessed Choo and the Mariners outfield instructor going over drills for hours.

Well, Mike Hargrove isn't exactly one of the 5.99 billion best MLB managers currently on the planet, so that doesn't make me feel any better. Indeed, if Bavasi (supposedly the manager's boss) is unable to make moves/forced to make moves in response to his manager's whims, then he's just as stupid as if it were all on him.
