What the F**K -- 7/9/05

  • Flyball Franklin has now won back-to-back games. What the F**K?!?
  • Flyball Franklin gave up fewer than 5 runs. Again. Against LALALALALA. What the F**K?!?
  • Willie Bloomquist set a new career-best hitting streak. A whopping 7 games. Hey -- this is a maaaaajor accomplishment for him. Like I said over at LookoutLanding -- I hereby officially un-hate Willie B. No, he's not a guy I'm going to drool over, like Rick Rizzs and just about everyone else involved with the M's, but he does show that he's useful from time to time. His baserunning alone is worth that MLB minimum!What the F**K?!?
  • Speaking of Willie, I got confirmation today that indeed they're shopping him. Not sure what kind of market exists for a weak-hitting utility infielder (especially one that wouldn't have the hometown-hero card to play in another city), but if we can get something for him (and not have to pay him 7 figures next season)What the F**K?!?
  • Miguel Olivo had a big sh*t-eating grin on his face after he got out of the worst possible thing that can happen to you as a hitter with runners on and less than two outs -- bunt the ball into the air. It seems Esteban Yan is dyslexic -- he ran to the front of the mound, and the ball landed behind the mound. I thought I saw a rally monkey in the crowd mouthing something like:What the F**K?!?
  • And finally, Rick Rizzs was giving advice to Kevin Calabro, voice of the Sonics, on how he can make the transition from basketball to baseball. He begged KC to use his trademark "Good Golly, Miss Molly!" when someone hits a home run. Watch. Raffey Palmeiro will come into the series at Safeco with 2999 career hits. Top of the 9th, with a runner on, Palmeiro jacks one just under the "Hit it Here Cafe" for his 3000th career hit. KC will come through for his little buddy Rick Rizzs. Know what I'll say? You guessed it. "What the F**K!!!!"

Let's just say:

"Sources close to the team"

and leave it at that.

I'm not even going to ask how a normal person like you got connections...

All right, I'll admit it: I was the source.
