Didn't have one when he was playing, either. To me, Walker has been the biggest disappointment on the team thus far.


I would probably cite Jones as a bigger disappointment since he isn't succeeding at his one role of hitting RHP which he gets almost all of his ABs against, but I agree with you about Walker.

I don't think Jones is as disappointing, because I really wasn't expecting that much from Jones. I was really hoping that he'd get dealt for value during the off season, because I don't think we're ever going to see an .800 OPS out of him again.

We need a slugging right fielder. Ibanez?


Ibanez playing OF : Doumit playing C

He might be a good PH option, but he's gimpy Adam Dunn in the field.

Ibanez will either stay put in Sea-town because their ownership is inept and what's left of their casual fanbase is too in love with a 'favorite' like Rauuuuuuuuuuuuuul or he will be traded to a contending AL team with a DH/PH need.

I see no reason to expect Ibanez to have a second have the same as his first half, and he's useless on defense. Ditto on the defense for Dunn.

I never want to see Ryan Doumit behind the plate again. I'd rather see Barajas back there.

That, too.

Good point.
