The Process: The Mariners' Missed Opportunity

39

Bradley Ankrom

Dealing Felix Hernandez at this year's non-waiver trade deadline could have significantly brightened the Mariners' future.

A true no. 1 starter is the rarest commodity in baseball, and the Seattle Mariners have had one in Felix Hernandez for the better part of a decade. Unfortunately, much of Hernandez’s value has been wasted on uncompetitive clubs: only twice since he reached the big leagues in 2005 have the Mariners finished above .500.

The subject of dealing their homegrown superstar is a sensitive one for Mariners fans, but an objective look at the facts suggests that the future of the organization would be much brighter if general manager Jack Zduriencik had moved Hernandez to a contender for a package of young impact bats that are close to big-league ready prior to this summer's non-waiver trade deadline.

Transaction Analysis: Dempster the Brave?

After changing his Sox, things are looking better for Kevin Youkilis.

The Wednesday Takeaway
Seeking an urgent upgrade at third base, White Sox general manager Kenny Williams rolled the dice on Kevin Youkilis, believing that all the former Red Sox infielder needed to get going again was a change of scenery. If the past two days are any indication, Williams was right.

After a 3-for-6 effort with a two-run homer off Roy Oswalt in Chicago’s 19-2 drubbing of the Rangers on Tuesday, Youkilis sent the U.S. Cellular Field crowd home happy with a walk-off single in the 10th inning of last night’s 5-4 victory. He has settled right in to the number-two spot of Robin Ventura’s lineup, and—in his first two games on the South Side—made an excellent first impression on his new fan base.

Western Front: La Casa Sucia

Geoff Young

The Padres are off to a horrible start, so a housecleaning might be forthcoming. Who stays and who goes?

The San Diego Padres, perhaps predictably, have gotten off to a miserable start in 2012. Although expectations were not high coming into the season, almost nothing has gone right for the club. Between injuries and ineffectiveness, not to mention ongoing ownership/television deal issues (I live 15 minutes from Petco Park and cannot watch the team on TV in my home, which might qualify as “charmingly retro” if it weren't so annoying), the Padres are staring at their worst-case scenario only a month into the campaign.

Last week, Kevin Goldstein suggested that a “housecleaning in San Diego could be coming.” Reader pobothecat wondered what such a housecleaning might look like, and so did I.

Stephen Strasburg faced the Pirates for the first time since his major-league debut, and he reeled off a similar line.

The Thursday Takeaway
Merry Strasmas, Nationals fans. With the team coming off a disappointing three-game skid, Stephen Strasburg took the mound against the Pirates and played stopper with results strikingly similar to his major-league debut.

Back on June 8, 2010, Strasburg surpassed even the loftiest of expectations by striking out 14 batters without issuing a walk over seven innings in his first career start. Strasburg’s victims that night were the Pirates, who managed only two runs on four hits, one of which was a Delwyn Young homer.
