    Modesto starting pitching is the weak spot in marinees starting pitching
    As far as higher rated prospects go

    Mariners need to draft starting pitching
    As a priority..they have some interesting prospects at azl

    Mercedes..rhp
    Sullentrop..rhp
    Wegman..L/L
    O Brien
    Carlson

    Seager out 10-12 weeks. So pretty much post-AS return here.

    Seager out is no prob they will end up platooning him unless he finds a new swing

    He is still good on D

    Drew Ferguson is an outfield guy I like
    Sense he was in the Astros minors

    Now he is with S.F. giants.(rule 5)..he will be a good lf/cf....for them..and #4th outfield

    With a 304 ave last year at AAA and a 434
    Obp...he has always been an on base guy

    But they still need one more LHH

    Bruce would do well there...barry bonds style...knock it in the water

    I would trade for Gregory Santos minor league RHpfor S.F. there #9prospect

    I think Vanity is apart of it and stubbornness. I really think he tried reforming but it was an unfortunate intersect of him trying Jerry’s way of pitching while at the same time his ability rapidly declined.

    I still would much rather the organization just suck it up and cut him instead of having unnamed sources talking crap or Servais talk crap. It’s like they intentionally are trying to make this a terrible ending. Granted he isn’t really helping his send off well but the Mariners to me are handling this about as poorly as possible with a star who is the singular reason the franchise didn’t become the Marlins or Rays in terms of attendance or being relevant in the market.

    I guess this helps that first base logjam issue they were having. Assuming Healy plays 3rd most days. It probably wont be pretty but oh well

    I speculate they haven't sucked it up and cut him is perhaps out of respect. They might perceive it as a poor PR move. The only thing I can think of is that it would be better to give him one last chance and let him suck than to cut him.

    Also if people still continue attending the King's Court thing, it's a decent way of putting people in otherwise undesirable seats.

    Mariners attendance would probably never hit the level of the Marlins or Rays. I say that mostly because there are a lot of younger people who enjoy going to the games despite not being able to name one player on the team.

    Going to the games is a "trendy" thing to do among millennials because they want to get a picture for Instagram or virtue signal that they're into sports. I say that coming from personal experience as I am a millennial. There are a ton of girls I know who go to the games frequently who don't give a shit about the team because "the guys are hot" and they view it as a social event. That's why The Pen is always full.

    I was/still am interested in how Seager performs after his improved conditioning so I'm disappointed in that regard. That aside, it could be a blessing in disguise.

    I'm just curious who the Mariners would rather play 1B. Bruce, Encarnacion or Vogelbach. If they're willing to play Encarnacion at 1B and put Jay Bruce at DH, that could give Bruce an opportunity to perhaps build his trade value. If Healy was the starter at 1B, I believe it would be difficult to find Bruce enough ABs to prove he's worth anything on the market.

    I have my fingers crossed that Bruce plays well so we're able to move his contract and perhaps get something moderately decent in return.

    Well I’d like to agree with the PR part but nearly everything that Jerry, Scott and the unnamed exec has said about Felix is essentially a slap in the face to him. Granted I’m not saying it isn’t warranted but still.

    I guess we can agree to disagree with the attendance. I firmly feel had Felix not been as dominant as he was they would’ve drawn the 7,000 for most of the season like they were getting for Tuesday-Thursday games against non relevant teams. I agree with the millennial thing but I don’t really think Safeco/The Pink turned into the world largest outdoor hipster bar until mid 2015 or so once Amazon took over the entire city. The King’s Court, to me at least, predated the frat party that happens now.

    I'm sure they will try a lot of lineups going forward
    Bruce
    And
    Encarnacion
    Finding vogelbach at bats..before the trade deadline is another issue

    Is losing Seager really that big of a deal?

    King filex is a history of where Felix was as a pitcher in his 20,s
    Now Felix has hit a new level at 30...they need to find out who this new pitcher is
    And what he does well
    I'm totaly sure leblanc ...would know this one

    Then they can find him a new role...before it is too late

    Addmiting the problem is the first step

    And with felix power is not the answer
    Pitching ability and finesse...would come
    To the front at this point

    Then add the power when he can.. if he can

    I would not have a prob sending Felix down

    Cuz who wants to pay his contract.
