Mariners Game 11: vs. Oakland

Hector Noesi made me look good last night. By contrast to Noesi, I think that Blake Beavan is a waste of a roster spot. He made me look really bad in his first start also. I hope he does it again, and again, and again. I’ll be catching back up with this game about midway through, so I probably won’t get the lineups up on time. I imagine that the lineup will be normal though, and maybe, oh please maybe, we’ll see a John Jaso appearance coming off a night game and against a right-handed pitcher. Then again, Olivo DH’d last night (to an 0-4 night no less) and as such his legs may just be fresh enough to play catcher the day after a night game. If the Mariners don’t start using Jaso soon, they may as well send him down to AAA or trade him.
