I know I’m basically a day late and a dollar short. But, I wanted to give me thoughts on the situation.
I realize that everyone that is basically smart no more puts any stock, nor do they care, about the awards season. They chalk it up to being stupid –and most of the time they are right– and just move from there. Hey, look at the fact that both Michael Pineda and Dustin Ackley combined for one first place voted. What a poor, poor job. Oh and the argument being based around an obvious poor knowledge of FIP and/or “lack” of playing time. It’s just sad. I don’t know what else to say about that.
I don’t care for either of these arguments as both are just plain stupid or lack the understanding for which they are arguing.
Whatever man, I guess we’ll all be glad come arbitration time for both of these guys. Speaking of which, I’ve thought a lot about possible extensions for both Ackley and Pineda. I wonder if the Mariners might want to consider it starting next year as Pineda could very likely be a super-2, assuming of course that the time in service rules don’t change with the pending CBA. I’m sure we’ll be bringing that up next off-season. Just a weird thought that followed the arbitration thought.
