ups and downs

A move that surprised no one and, to many was a bit overdue, happened yesterday . . .
Jesus is now donning a Rainers uniform (he pinch hit for Guti last night and ended up 0-2)

Churchill’s take

The corresponding move was made today, as well as the related dominoes . . .

  • Catcher Jesus Sucre recalled from AAA Tacoma
  • Robert Andino DFA’d to make room on the 40-man
  • Infielder Carlos Triunfel recalled from AAA Tacoma (he found out after he landed in Reno with the Rainiers ~ sounds like there was a little kerfuffle re: Andino’s DFA that wasn’t supposed to be public ~ so had to hop on a plane back to Seattle)
  • Rich Poythress goes from AAA Tacoma to AA Jackson
  • Brad Miller promoted from AA Jackson to AAA Tacoma
  • Chris Taylor promoted from A High Desert to AA Jackson

Speaking of Tacoma . . .
Guti is currently on a rehab stint there (and likely will be there for awhile, since he only has 4 hits in 7 games)

Speaking of ups and downs . . .

  • home for FIVE whole days (having had only FOUR other home games in the entire month of May)
  • started the season 10-17 without winning a series
  • went 5-0-1 n their next six series for a 12-6 record
  • currently on a six game losing skid (multiple heartbreaks in CLE and total humiliation in ANA)

time for a new streak!


oh, been meaning to post this for awhile (so touching) . . .
