Why the Mariners will continue to lose

Willie Bloomquist

The Seattle Mariners are in a sorry state right now, and it sounds like the interim manager wants to keep it that way.

His comments regarding the playing time of a certain Willie Bloomquist:

“We need to keep his energy in the game,” manager Jim Riggleman said. “He adds something to the lineup every time he’s out there.”

Willie Bloomquist. He of the 0 HR, 5 RBI in 77 AB. Sure, his OBP this year is .367, but his career OBP is a paltry .317 with a SLG of .325. Yes, this is what you need in the Mariners lineup whose team OBP this season is barely above .300. Sigh, maybe someday the ‘ners will send Wee Willie out to pasture for good. Until then, enjoy the time remaining Seattlites!
