Smoak to AAA, Bradley to DL, White and Tui Called Up

Via multiple sources, as this was reported hours ago, the Mariners have made several roster moves this morning, despite not making any trades.


  • Milton Bradley to the 15-day DL, retroactive to the 27th. Shocking.
  • Justin Smoak to Tacoma. While I have previously advocated giving him lots of playing time at the ML level, he has been struggling mightily with the bat since coming to Seattle, and this might be the best thing for him right now. It’ll probably be a 1 month stint, as they give him a little time down there to work on things before the rosters expand in September.


  • Sean White, who is terrible.
  • Matt Tuiasosopo, who is also terrible, though in a slightly less useless way, as he actually has offensive potential.

I’m really, really sick of seeing Sean White pitch, but other than that, there’s not really much I can complain about here. God this season sucks.

    It’s been a sad year.

    Kerry Wood was just traded to the Yanks. The Mariners should have traded for Kerry Wood and used him as a DH. In 345 career at-bats as a pitcher Wood has 7 home runs:;_ylt=AlWyFfNgYNj796PxorydOcSFCLcF

    Multiply Woods stats by 10 and it’s 3,450 at bats for a projected 70 home runs. In 3,501 at bats, as of today, the Mariners have 63 homeruns.

    Yikes. If Smoak doesn’t work out, the Cliff Lee trade will really haunt them. To not get some front-line players or big-time prospects would be horrible.
