Old News

Why is Jon Heyman just now reporting this?

Jon Heyman of CBSSports.com reports that the Mariners have discussed demoting Dustin Ackley and Justin Smoak to the minors.

Wasn't this implied by Wedge's comments and Geoff Bakers blog on 7/6. 

BREAKING NEWS...we landed on the moon!!! Thanks for the timely report.

Peguero Up, Noesi Down

Carlos Peguero was called up after crushing AAA pitching.  Noesi is sent down after being crushed by major league hitters. 

I'm very much ok with this.  With the way the offense has been playing, if everyone is going to keep putting up 0-4s, what is the difference if it has 3 strikeouts attached to it (I understand there is a difference). 

The question is where will Peguero play?  LH outfielder.  Is he really going to fill in for Guti, Saunders or Wells.  I don't really like that idea.  So he is more of a DH.  So now he will play in place of Jaso against RHP or will Wedge not play Montero against right handers anymore.  You might as well send Montero to AAA then. 

It's funny how much we can discuss which bad hitter should play against which pitcher.
