Again, I'm a Soriano owner so don't take this as sour grapes or wishful thinking...but Guardado won't lose the job unless he gets hurt, traded or leaves next year as a FA. Just because he's in a rough patch doesn't mean the team's going to dump an established closer. Also, Guardado pitched an excellent game tonight - he was dominant and just let one pitch catch too much of the plate. Other than that he looked great.

So did Soriano and Putz as well.

All 3 of the pitchers there had their best stuff going. It's a shame Guardado missed with the pitch on the hr in what was otherwise an excellent outing.

You must be looking at another game. If by looking good you mean he looked better than last time sure...but so what. He served a fat one right down the middle to get beat by of all people Anderson. Next guy hit a hard single and Guardado got the third out on a steal attempt.

Not sure if anybody has posted this ..

But Eddie is in a walk year, and Seatlle would be nuts to take him out of that role before the trading deadline.
It would ruin any chance they have of getting something, anything in return ...


Besides ...

He didn't get the name 'Steady Eddie' for nothing ...
He will be fine.

i could really care less about either of these pitchers so ill give an unbiased opinion. eddie was completely dealing before he made that one mistake to a .100 hitter. probably got a bit overconfident, but he did look good. not sure what his velocity was though.

If I remember right the single was on a decent pitch. The home run was definitely a bad pitch. All of his other pitches were well located (most right on or off the outside corner). After the previous night that's a huge improvement. He showed that he's capable of pitching like his old self tonight and I think he has a leash that's easily long enough to right the ship.

An established closer hits a rough patch and blows a few saves and you guys want to put in the lowest WHIP/ERA on the team. If/When Soriano goes in there and serves up a few blastoffs suddenly the beloved savior has become dogmeat and you will be calling for his head. If managers ever took this kind of advice, no closer would ever last more than one month and Billy Wagner would be coaching little league by now.

Actually I could care less as Putz blows imo and Soriano is at best problematic given his injury history. Add in the fact that the Ms blow. If they were a contender though, I would think the axe would have fallen already on Guardado. Man has not been good.

I agree with you, the M's know they will finish last and this gives them even more incentive to get Eddie some good innings and then get good value in a trade. No question he has been terrible.
