"Everyday Eddie"

So with the addage of "Everyday Eddie" put with Mr. Eddie Guardado, the current closer for the Mariners, I have to add one thing... If he continues to pitch as the closer of the team, I may just have to hang myself from the ceiling by my nostrils. Every outing by Guardado has gotten progressively worse, and his pitching is continually messing up the Mariners early season chances at staying with the rest of the American League West.

With options such as Rafael Soriano, JJ Putz, and others like George Sherrill in the bullpen, I have to wonder why Mr. Mike Hargrove continues to run Guardado out to the mound late in the game. He has now blown back to back save opportunities and there are times where it just does not make sense to keep him in the game, much less on the roster whatsoever...

This is going to be a rather quick post because, well, I am very upset at the management for continuing to run Guardado out in the 9th inning. Why? Well, his second blown save in as many chances was one of the worst innings I have ever seen as a Mariner fan... Yes, worse than Heathcliff Slocumb, worse than Mike Schooler, maybe just as worse as Bobby Ayala (ok, maybe not) but the point is, when you tie the game in the bottom of the 8th inning, there is NO way that you should be walking the bases loaded, and THEN WALKING IN THE GO AHEAD RUN in the top of the 9th inning. There is little to no excuse for this shoddy managering of the baseball team, and if he keeps this up, Hargrove may just lose his job come July.

Soriano, Putz, Sherrill all deserve a shot at the closing opportunities should Guardado continue to fail. If all else fails, Eddie should be a left handed situational man, pitching to only one or two batters a night.

I am NOT happy right now...

As much as I love Eddie's attitude and commitment,I have to agree with you. They continue to run this team as if they don't want to offend anybody (apparently, this includes no winning). Another guy management is "in denial" about is Jeremy Reed who they continue with as a "player of the future"...They can't seem to recognize that Eddie arm is shot and that Reed is not a major league calibre player, unless, of course, you find a .200 batting average acceptable for your centerfielder!
