8/18 - Mariners vs. @ White Sox 7:11 PM CDT - CSN

Recommended Posts

Seattle playing Balentien in center when they have Suzuki and Reed is comical.

 

And for the OC haters, don't worry you only have to put up with him for another two months or so.

Who knows? Seems like there was more to that than we saw. He's usually really aggressive.

 

Anybody hear him taking it back? Hahahah, he gets everyone all fired up that it was OC's fault, then blames Lexi. WTF?

Wrong guy?!?...you're friggin kidding right? He threw it right where he was supposed to...on a line right over the bag.

No, not kidding. You actually don't throw it in a line over the bag, you throw to the guy covering the bag, to one side or the other as he's arriving. It's all about timing on a double play, as a result you are throwing to a guy, not just to a bag.

 

Mark thought Alexei had the coverage, you can see it from his head and his throw.

 

Somewhere the communication was messed, or the wrong guy covered, or Mark just drew a blank when he whirled.

 

We're all lacking enough information to place exact blame, end of story.

Got home in time to see a disappointing score. Our middle infield defense is very overrated. This is a must win game with the bad match-up tomorrow.

No....you don't. You throw to the line. That's what you're taught from Little League on...it's the SS play and he was there.

All I know is on the replay, OC is going to the base, Alexei is backing up, and Mark throws it to the bag, slightly to the first base line. If OC keeps going, he has the DP.

Why does it matter whose fault it is?

 

Aren't you taught from Little League on up to always check with the 2b/SS to see who's covering? If Buehrle didn't do that, then shame on him.

Well you go ahead and think what you want, but that's simply incorrect.

 

Nor is it always the SS play.

LOL, guy walks in in the middle of the argument and you try to get him involved.

There's one! Nice job by PK....Buehrle retiring Ichiro with a man on 3rd and one out could be a big play in this game.

Mark was throwing towards Alexei, there's no such thing as throwing to the bag on a double play.

 

Cabrera wasn't even there in time to get the throw, if it was to Cabrera, Mark would have had to have waited a touch longer.

Washburn really is the perfect hitter for Brian Anderson's swing. It's too bad he didn't get the start.

 

Edit: to not play in place of PK or Swisher, of course!
