Since the team is currently playing winning baseball, it's probably time to think about what comes next. Dave over at USS Mariner has done just that - it's a long article but definitely worth a read. My impressions:
- Bringing up Doyle and letting him and Ibanez play LF/DH is an awesome idea. It makes the club better. Dave didn't mention this, but if Everett is going to slide to the bench, it's buh-bye to Petagine.
- Getting a solid middle reliever is a must! I can't stand to watch Mateo any more - he just doesn't inspire my confidence - so you know Grover is not impressed.
- Getting rid of Pineiro would be another move that makes the team better - as long as it can be accomplished at little or no cost. Got to agree that the fifth starter is not that important - the LF/DH situation and a solid middle reliever should be the top priorities.
Watching Mariner baseball is fun again. Bill Bavasi better make sure he does what is required to keep this team rolling - the division is theirs for the taking!
