Seattle Mariners Game 78: Mets 8 Mariners 2

Oh Miguel why must you hurt us so? 3 weeks in the bullpen clearly did you NO good cause you sucked just as bad in your first start back as you did before you were banished to the bullpen. You claim that it is because you aren't healthy. Well if this is true then why do you feel the need to allow them to trot you out there as if you are going to pitch well. I think this game proved more than ever that until you are healthy you should not be allowed to step foot on the pitching mound. 2.2 innings pitched, 5 hits, 8 runs, 4 earned runs, FIVE walks, 3 K's. FIVE walks in just over two innings of work? It shouldn't take a rocket scientist to figure out your command is completely gone. Yet there you were, starting yet another game and digging a huge hole for your team and giving them virtually no chance. You said you were embarrassed and you should be.

Nothing else to say about this one. The offense wasn't there tonight. The bullpen shut things down after Batista was pulled but it didn't matter. This one was over long before the first pitch was thrown. This one was over the minute it was announced that Batista would be starting.
It is off to San Diego now for a weekend series before heading back home on Monday. It is my feeling that Richie Sexson and Jose Vidro will be playing their last games in Mariners uniforms over the weekend. I imagine one or both of them will be released once the team is back home in Seattle. Should be interesting to see how it all plays out.
