Journey to Distant, Wild, Baseball-less Countries
I shall be away from baseball for the next three weeks, I'm afraid. I haven't exactly been tossing off posts every hour at home, but I'm flying to europe tomorrow for that great, mysterious sporting event of theirs, the World Cup.
If anyone here has any interest in that, I'll endeavor to write something (though it may need to wait until I get back). If people think soccer is for losers, then I won't spoil the fine-tuned, focused, analytical marvel that is Mariners Morsels.
In the meantime, someone needs to get down to Tacoma and see what's wrong with Bobby Livingston. As Jeff at Lookout Landing pointed out, it's starting to get worrying. I'm sure he'll get back into the groove, but for those among us (and I'm including myself here) who've always been suspicious about how much promotions/demotions/layoffs affect a pitcher, or how something as ineffable and pop-psychology as 'confidence' matters (how can you be in AAA without confidence?), we're starting to find out the answer: these things matter *a lot*.
