West Coast Malaise Continues.

May 9th At Seattle


Today's temperature:
94
"All this Starbucks I'm drinking in Seattle sure puts me in the mood to tinker!"

Short Take:  Different city, same result.

  • Another night on the West Coast, another loss for the Sox. The Pale Hose drop to 3 games below .550 with a 6-3 loss to Seattle. Is it the rain? The grey skies? or the ghosts of the 2000 playoffs? Something in the Pacific Northwest makes this team look even more zombified than usual.
  • Hey Dan Wright, welcome back to the majors! Big Danny makes his first big league start of 2003 and is less than impressive, giving up 3 earned runs while surrendering 6 hits and 4 walks over 4 1/3 innings. Finding the center of the plate proved difficult for Dan, as breaking ball after breaking ball just sat a foot off the outside corner. Danny worked himself out of a couple jams rather nicely, but the bad far outweighed the good.   
  • Maybe the biggest omen of how the night was going to go for Wright came on the very first pitch of the ballgame. Ichiro Suzuki blasted Wright's offering deep to right, and only a perfectly timed leap by Magglio Ordonez keeps him from going yard. Ichiro may not have gone yard, but there was still plenty of feasting going on by the Mariners. Carlos Guillen belted 2 triples tonight.
  • Jose Valentin did get the Sox on the board first with a 2 run shot in the first inning, but the bats fell asleep shortly after.
  • You know something is pretty wrong with this team when Brian Daubach is the only other batter besides Valentin with 2 hits. Paul Konerko and Mags Ordonez can only manage singles, and Frank Thomas shows plenty of diminished skills going 0 for 4.
  • Perhaps most importantly, the Sox keep their most prolific streak of the season alive-- consecutive games with multiple grounding into double plays. Sandy Alomar (goose egg on the night) and Armando Rios did their part to keep it alive.
  • Be sure and tune in tomorrow night for West Coast misery, Part V. Bartolo "Average" Colon gets the start for the Sox.
