Still a Rainier (for now)

12 Jul

Just like last season at the All-Star break, word on the street was that Adam Jones was taking the step up to the show again. Word was he was gonna be wearing Mariners threads the next day. Well, word today is he’s still suiting up in Rainiers garb, but if you want to see him in that garb, better do it soon. Seems the M’s will bench their DH, then reshuffle the outfield to make room for him, where they hope he will be a major-league threat at base stealing and hitting. More info here and here.

Even though it’s the reason minor-league ball exists, I can’t help but get a little bummed when the M’s bring up a player from MY Tacoma Rainiers. The Rainiers, riding a 4 game winning streak AND no longer living at the bottom of the PCL, open a homestand tonight against The Fresno Grizzlies…and it’s dollar night.

We’re watching this, but you can also keep up on this over at the always excellent No Rhubarb!

    As much as I’d like to see that kid up here I don’t think it’ll happen unless there’s an injury. We’ve got a veteran squard who are playing really well right now. Sitting one of them to bring a rookie up would just piss people off and upset team chemistry. I do, however, have no doubt that it’s only a matter of time before he’s the starting left feilder for the Mariners.

    He is a really good player and he will get his chances to play he will be the starting outfilder next year he puts up good numbers and has speed he will be good with the mariners
