Lowered his ERA to 15

Wow, never thought I would have that as a title. Weaver, again, ugh!

At least he was in for 4 additional innings. This line score is almost exactly what he did against Boston. As whole unit, the M's have looked pretty good from what I have seen. Ichiro is starting to get some sort of swing back. But it would be nice to have a hitter on .300 in our everyday lineup. They are leading the AL West with a killer 5-4 record.

Moving Update

Dear Loyal Reader(s):

My wife and I are moving to the Seattle area in May. That is right, I will no longer be reporting on the Mariners from Salt Lake City, but directly from their hometown.

I have a job opportunity that I could not pass up that will take me to the Emerald City. It was a difficult decision to make since we have family in the SLC area. Family means a lot to both my wife and I as we move further away, we will increase the priority to see them.

My official start date is May 15th, so my blog may not have a lot of news between now and then. I will do what I can between now and then to give you my spin on the M's and maybe my fantasy teams progress.

What a game! Thanks Ryan for the call. King Felix is earning his "King" title so far. In his 17 innings pitched, he has a 0.00 ERA and 18Ks. This kid is only 20, I hope we don't burn him out.

Will the real Jeff Weaver please sit down

I was afraid of this. Yes, it was his first start of the year, and yes they had a week off because of snow. However, this box score line is not something to write home to mom.

1 week of baseball

It has been an interesting week. The M's won 2 out of 3 from the A's, matching last years wins against them. This was also ouur first 2-0 start since 1996. Then we went to Cleveland to sit in a hotel room while snow pounded the Ohio lake coastline. Today's double header is looking less likely as well. Sexson, who I thought was kind of "washed up" has 2 HR's this year in 3 games.

Have not had too much of a chance to watch MLB.tv yet. I did catch a couple of innings for the second game for the M's. Not sure why Dave Niehaus and Rick Rizzs were not doing the games. Instead Dave Sims and Mike Blowers appear to be the point men, at least early on.
