There has been plenty to talk about these past couple of days, what with this perfect game thing and all.

This has been a crazy, whirlwind couple of days. Felix threw the first perfect game in Mariners history, and then Iwakuma took a perfecto into the 4th innings of last nights affair. The Mariners rotation is flying high, so much so that the Mariners have no intention of  breaking it up. So with the Mariners planning on not cashing in on Millwood, and Ramirez hanging out in Tacoma even after his best Major League start to date, barring injury the rotation is likely to sport the same look until the end of the season.

September is right around the corner and we might get a glimpse of how the Mariners plan to use some of there future pieces. Until then I don’t foresee the Mariners lineup looking any different, I doubt the team is going to make a move before August 31st.

    They haven’t run Millwood through waivers yet but they can if they get an offer they like. I wouldn’t object to them signing him for next year if he stays cheap. Iwakuma might take up to a 3 year deal to sign but might be worth it;
    Vargas I felt would not be worth tending a contract to for his last arb year as it could cost more than I thought his value was but I think he’s worth hanging on to. As we have learned prospects are just that and the Big 3 or Little 2 may never be big league players. When we have a surplus then we can peddle it.
