200 WIN CLUB!!!

Who is able to tell which team is the first place team and which one is the last place. All indications point to the Mariners being the dominant team. Last night the Mariners received a stellar performance from the crafty left-hander Jamie Moyer in what turned out to be his 200th career win. He also became only the 25th left-hander in the history of the game to reach that plateau.

This game was another great one to watch, offensive outbursts as well as stellar defense. Beltre had an incredible snag of a grounder that he clearly was upset about. He wanted to turn two but just the fact that he was able to get a glove on the ball was impressive in itself.

Moyer however deserves the spotlight. He has been the constant professional thought-out his tenure with the Mariners. When leaving the game his trademark tip of the hat to the umpire shows his unflappable class. Our hats here at Mariner Magic are off to you Jamie. He has been one of the greatest mariners in the team’s history.

Don’t look now folks the M’s are about to take the first 3 of the 4 games set with the Angels. Could we be seeing yet another swing………this time for the better? Anything’s possible.

  1. Darren Bragg for Jamie Moyer. I remember at the time being a little upset with that trade. I thought Bragg was a good player. Turns out to be the best trade in M's history.

    Yeah this is weird. How do they go from losing a series to the Royals to having a chance to _______ the Angels. (I don't want to say the word, it's like we're in the middle of a no-hitter and I don't want to jinx it.)

    Meche on the hill today. Will he respond the Mariner Magic call out?

  2. bragg for moyer was nice, but no way does it match kenny phelps for jay buhner.

  3. Right after I typed that I thought of the Phelps for Buhner trade. That trade is better because:
    1. Ken Phelps is a clown and broke up Brian Holman's perfect game.
    2. The M's ripped off the Yankees
    3. It was referenced in a Seinfeld episode
