Someone had to be moved to make room for a third catcher. Can someone tell me why in the hell the move was to option to Casper Wells to AAA Tacoma? Casper has been doing pretty well in the field, and is hitting at a decent clip when he's given the chance.

Today the Mariners decided to activate Miguel Olivo from the DL.
Why not rid ourselves of the $9M albatross in Chone Figgins? Manager Eric Wedge said that at this time ridding ourselves of "Donkey" was not an option. The guy can't hit and does nothing but ride the pine. I thought this rebuilding thing was about seeing young guys and having them continue to develop. I hate to sound like a Debby Downer, but I'M TIRED OF WATCHING LOSING BASEBALL!! I know we have won 5 of our last 6, but this is a head scratcher. I hope this works and we can start a good series against the Halos.

Hopefully this is the momentum they need to finish the second half of the season strong. The Dawgs are on Twitter and Facebook. Yes folks, we are purple and gold like the Washington Huskies since our manager did play baseball for the UW.

The cover man for this Time magazine in 1954 turns 81 today!
Willie started with the Giants in New York playing center field.
When the Giants went to San Francisco, Willie went with them.
Willie would go back to New York to finish off his career as a Met.
The Say Hey Kid is still very loved in the Bay Area to this day.
In my opinion, this is a must read for any fan of baseball.
Imagine these three in the same outfield, GREATEST EVER!!
While everyone will remember "The Catch,"
I still believe that Willie should be remembered as the face of West Coast Baseball. He was the first BIG star to come out in 1958.
Happy 81st Birthday to one of the greatest players in the history of the game.

This ship has been sinking since the start of the 2004 season, and you would think could have repaired it and start to get it to float by now. I can honestly see it taking another 3-5 years before this team is even close to being competitive. The Mariners wonder why the fans won't come to Safeco Field anymore. I agree that it is still a beautiful park, but even I stay away. Why pay $20 to park against some random team(it's $35-50 for teams like New York and Boston), nearly $40 per ticket, $6 for a hot dog, and $4 for a pop or $9 for a beer to watch your team continue to lose? I can sit on my comfy couch and do it for a lot cheaper, and if I get bored I can change the channel. I hope they can get this disaster going before we lose our young stars like Felix, and Dustin Ackley to the big money teams that win like players wants to do. I am in my 30th year as a Mariners fan and will continue to support my team, but please give something back to me as a thank you. This love affair is like a marriage, it's give and take from both sides but all I get is me giving to you and and you take but don't give me anything back...
