Mariners Moose Tracks, 7/22/17: Kyle Lewis, Kid Pitcher, no more Tyler O’Neill

2017-07-22T07:00:04-07:00

Saturday morning linkage for your red-rimmed eyes Happy Saturday, Mariners fans! The Yankees defeated the Mariners again last night, as the M’s looked again like a team that has no business being in the post-season. Cool, guys. Really cool. SCORE SOME RUNS, YOU BANANA-BRAINED BOOBS. In happier news, links! In Mariners news... I don’t know if you were aware, but the Mariners made a trade yesterday. Here’s Dave Cameron’s take on it. New Mariners’ acquisition Marco Gonzales was a name in the Chris Correa hacking scandal in 2013; he described the situation as “a weird, bizarre thing to happen.” Graham Womack examined Felix’s Hall of Fame case. The Mariners sent Triple-A relievers Mark Lowe and Jean Machi to the White Sox in exchange for cash. With Dan Altavilla taking over the closer role at Tacoma and newly promoted fireballer Thyago Vieira acting in a setup role, the Tacoma bullpen became too crowded for the veteran relievers, who will hopefully be able to get a few more MLB paychecks with the White Sox before the end of the season. Kid Pitcher Ryan Weber is throwing for the first time today since his injury. EVERYONE SEND HIM GOOD THOUGHTS. In Mariners minors news... The suddenly-depleted Tacoma Rainiers carved out a 4-3 win last night against the Sacramento River Cats, thanks to a walkoff sac fly from Zach Shank. Boog Powell collected two more hits and is currently batting .344, and Chase De Jong had maybe the best game he’s pitched as a Rainier, going 7.2 innings and giving up 3 runs. And if you think that doesn’t sound impressive, you haven’t seen many Chase De Jong starts. Tyler O’Neill is gone, and the Rainiers are significantly less fun for that, but they should soon be getting an upgrade in the form of Ian Miller. Arkansas lost, because that’s kind of what they do, but Miller went 2-4, because that’s kind of what he does. The AquaSox won, 10-4. Catcher David Banuelos had another strong game, going 3-4 with an RBI double. He’s currently batting .269. Kyle Lewis returned to Modesto with a bang, smacking a three-run home run in the Nuts’ 9-6 win. Eric Filia went 3-4 with a double and a walk and pushed his average to .320. He’s a good candidate to be promoted to Double-A Arkansas to take Miller’s spot. Nathan Bannister turned in another strong start, going five innings of three-hit, two-run ball while striking out eight. Around the league... Hahahahahaha Sonny Gray is going to cost some team so, so much. Ex-Mariner Ryan Yarbrough struck out a career-best 13 and I’m not crying you’re crying * kicks Drew Smyly’s broken elbow* Britni De La Cretaz examined the complex nature of race and sports media culture at Fenway in light of Adam Jones’s experience with racist taunts. Spoiler alert: the comments section is hot, hot trash. Francisco Cervelli, Pirates catcher, legged out a triple, and batterymate Gerrit Cole was prepared to offer him oxygen. Kate’s pick... This is pretty awesome: Beep ⚾️: A league for the blind and low-vision.Seattle's team will play for the national title (via @EmilyGiam) https://t.co/Gs5C1BXXF7 pic.twitter.com/W1TSvSB8lA— Seattle Times Sports (@SeaTimesSports) July 21, 2017 Gonzales is a 25-year-old starter who was a 1st round pick and began the year still recovering from Tommy John Surgery. The upside is a balanced approach with several pitches that are located well, most notably a plus change up. The minus are obviously his health concerns. Gonzales has seen his velocity jump up a tick or two since returning from surgery which is encouraging, but his realistic ceiling is a mid-rotation starter, and that is not assured. the good news is he is under team control until at least 2023, but, well, so was Tyler O’Neill. More analysis of the trade to follow, but here is a place to vent and talk about your feelings on this one. Get it all out, folks. [...]



Lookout Landing Podcast - Episode 20: The Phelps trade and the state of the team

2017-07-21T09:00:04-07:00

Jamey Vinnick of Scout.com joins Kate to talk about the Phelps trade and make fun of a proposed Paxton trade

John bails on Kate this week because he is "moving," so Jamey Vinnick of Scout.com joins the show to talk about the Mariners' latest trade. They talk about the power of seeing Tyler O'Neill in the flesh, break down Andrew Moore's recent tough start, and talk about the new (old) Felix Hernandez.

Jamey, who has spent time in Everett and Tacoma watching Brayan Hernandez and Brandon Miller, gives his evaluation on what the Mariners gave away, and Kate discusses who she thinks might amount to the most valuable piece in the trade. They analyze what David Phelps brings and discuss his strengths and weaknesses, and speculate about whether or not he could potentially help the Mariners rotation in 2018.

They also watch the Mariners make Felix feel like his old self by giving him no run support over seven strong innings. That part is less fun. You can skip it.

Finally, they take some Twitter questions and Kate makes concerned Kermit sounds about a question regarding the tradability of the Triple-A relievers. Finally, your podcasters are simultaneously struck by a craving for Capri Sun and Fun Size Snickers (Kate) and pepperoni pizza (Jamey).

Music: "I Just Can't Get Enough" - Depeche Mode; "Only God Can Judge Me" - Tupac Shakur; "Louvre" - Lorde
