Players Prefer Presentation: The Hoping is the Hardest Part

Meg Rowley

They're Tired of This Guy.

As one grows older, it becomes a habit to search for baseball players who fasten themselves like tent stakes into the past. Rickey Henderson, my favorite player as a boy, was still around stealing bases and hunting for jobs when I was out of college, hunting for jobs. Roger Clemens held out as the last active member of RBI Baseball for Nintendo, 20 years after its release. Bartolo Colon remains the last link of Major League Baseball to the city of Montreal. These players serve as a connective tissue between generations and eras, keeping one fastened to youth for just a little longer.

Adam Lind may or may not have tooted, but he definitely could have tooted.

Let’s just assume that Adam Lind farted.

On yesterday’s Effectively Wild, Ben and Jeff answered a listener email concerning Adam Lind’s fifth inning at-bat in the Mariners’ September 18, 2016 game, during which Lind appears to visibly fart. It looked like this:

What does it mean to have your number retired, but only briefly? And who's really Mr. Mariner?

Recently it was announced that no Seattle Mariner would again wear the number 11 on the field of play. Following a dramatic upswing in support from Hall of Fame voters, the ceremony for Edgar Martinez (scheduled for August 12) takes on the spirit of a hopeful preamble, a chance to honor the team’s popular hitting coach at home before sending him off to Cooperstown. This is as it should be. Baseball is built for celebration and appreciation, birthday parties and harvest festivals. It is built to mark time. There’s only one strange aspect to retiring Edgar’s number: basically, it already was. No one had worn it since his retirement in 2004.

What does college poetry have to do with Stan Javier? Everything.

It’s late. Outside my window, across the valley, porch lights twinkle; behind me, my wife watches a documentary about German expatriates in the Galapagos. There is, yet again, no baseball. I have spent half an hour reading poetry I wrote in college. I should be writing about the Hall of Fame. I do not want to write about the Hall of Fame. I want to write about Stan Javier.

Sometimes we are deep and sometimes we are not deep, and sometimes we just want to feel deep, that warm comfortable blanket of wisdom in seeing something and understanding it, having words for it. This is one of those times and I am sorry. I am sorry that I have chosen this, if in fact I have.

Tools of Ignorance: Cornered

6

Jeff Quinton

Is there an inefficiency to be exploited by taking so-so center fielders and playing them in a corner?

The Mariners have added Jarrod Dyson and Mitch Haniger to their outfield this offseason and they already had Leonys Martin. The Rays traded Drew Smyly for a group of prospects, which they insisted (to at least some extent) include Mallex Smith, and they already had Kevin Kiermaier. I think the Mariners and Rays made these trades because they thought high-end corner outfield defense was undervalued.

Transaction Analysis: Can't Stop, Won't Stop

Jerry Dipoto refuses to stop making trades, this time roping the Braves and Rays into his addiction.

Seattle picks up Yovani Gallardo and Jarrod Dyson, Baltimore adds Seth Smith, and Kansas City brings in Nate Karns.

Do the Mariners have one last push in them before the inevitable rebuild arrives?

It almost worked. Last offseason incoming Mariners general manager Jerry Dipoto took over an aging roster full of heavy contracts and busted prospects, applied a slathering of industrial-grade spackle, and nearly assembled a playoff team. An instant teardown would have been acceptable, if not welcomed; certainly, Mariners fans had been through more than one. But the idea was that the team’s core of Felix Hernandez, Kyle Seager, Nelson Cruz, and Robinson Cano was worth a shot. The Salts won 86 games and fell a weekend short of the postseason for the second time in three years.
