49-55 just after the trade deadline.
Steven Hill is actually listed in the conversation for rookie of the year, though he's competing in this year's class of rookies with Eric Hosmer, who's hitting over .300 with 19 homers.
We're stuck starting Jason Pridie in LF, with both Saunders and Snider on IR. Kind of typical M's luck, really -- Last assessment put the Mariners with the #2 pitching staff in all of baseball, so two of our best bats immediately go onto the 60-day DL. Will be lucky to see them again before next year, and they might've made the difference with getting a sniff at the playoffs.
Domonic Brown is a freak. He's at around .260 with 19 HR and 70 RBIs at present, after a bit of a slump. Ackley and Schumaker are now splitting time at 2B. Ackley's gotten his fielding up to even with Schu's, but Schu's got too good of a bat against right-handers to be kept completely out of the lineup. Makes for some weird lineups, though... Leading off, the Designated Hitter, your backup no-power second baseman.
Pridie and Isidro Ramirez (2011 1st round draft pick) are making good swings on the ball, but neither is a superstar just yet. Isidro might be taking over for McClouth next year, or at least splitting time.
Roy Oswalt put up a 4-hit shutout in his first start for the M's. Niiiiiiice.
