Wow, can you believe yet another podcast is up for your consumption? Jeff, with all of the chaos that has been going on over the course of the last few days found a little time to slip me in and we had ourselves a nice little conversation. We touch on all of the hot subjects that have been banging around the interweb over the last few weeks and some that haven't.

Enjoy this one, it's 33 minutes of Mariner Porn.

Bonderman blocking Hultzen, Paxton, Walker, Maurer? Hmmm Yes, Beavan in Tacoma means Bonderman if he does well kicks likely Maurer to Jackson. Heck, maybe Paxton to Jackson is the best move. He's got to work on control. He struggled mightily in the AFL. Plus, start him in warm weather?

Also, interesting to hear Jeff talk about Seager as coming out of nowhere. The interesting thing about that is why does Jack promote Kyle as aggressively as he does if Jack doesn't think it's possible. Another notch on the belt for our GM.

As far as the comment on the empty WAR for Ackley? How does a guy that gets on base as little as Ackley did last year still score 84 runs? In Suzuki's 262 hit year he had 49 walks and still scored only 101 times. Ackley got on base less than 200 times and scored 84 runs! Some guys just know how to score. :thumbup:

Well, scoring runs, once you are on base, have more to do with what your teammates behind you do, than what you yourself do.

I've heard criticism about the RBI stat because they say that the big RBI guys are the ones who get more people on base before him, and while this is right, the RBI man still has to bring them in, they could K with the guy in 3rd base and nobody out, or they could GIDP and fail to bring the guy in (why do all of you stare at Beltré?), so if they brought the runner in, they did their job. But scoring runs, once you are on base, is even more teammate dependent than RBI, so I don't put much stock into scoring runs. Ackley has to do a better job at getting on base himself.

Who is hitting behind you does factor into things. Still, some people just have a knack for crossing home plate. Bourn could only score 96 runs with and OBP of .348 in front of Hayward, Freeman, Chipper, Uggla, McCann and Prado. Ackley scored 84 with a .294 OBP in front of Suzuki, Olivo, Seager, Montero and Smoak. Which do you think the greater accomplishment is?

If anyone wants to listen to some of the older podcasts, I've updated the podcast page (the link is on the right hand side of the portal page).
