Egads. That was $25 million well spent. If you allow the first run of the game to be scored on a balk, you know youíre gonna have a bad night. Iím guessing that 15.43 ERA Batista left with in the fifth inning didnít sit too well either.
Still, Batistaís not the only one to blame for last nightís 9-0 pummeling. The Mís offense managed just three hitsóone from Ichiro, and two from Ibanez. Sexson? Beltrť? Betancourt (who just got a three year deal)? Nope, nada, nyet.
Today is an off day. Tomorrow the Mís take on Cleveland. If their bats are as cold as Jacobs Field is sure to be, then it could get ugly.
Also: Renton officials donít think a proposed $500 million Sonics arena would turn a profit; the Sonics lost last night in what will probably be their future home; the Wizardsí Gilbert Arena is done for the year; the Masters is underway; and the Kansas City Royals are about to get a taste of Daisuke Matsuzaka.
