A Paragraph With The Mariners – 90

And in a season where seemingly everything has happened – Griffey falls asleep during a game, Milton Bradley breaks down, Griffey retires abruptly and drives off into the sunset before telling anyone, Cliff Lee endears himself to an entire fanbase in less than half a season, the team sucks and sucks hard – here we have it. A dugout brouhaha involving manager and player. Wak and Figgins. Good grief. Wak pulls Figgins for some mental defensive error – essentially not backing up a throw from Saunders – Figgins gets upset for being made an example, words exchange, men get aggressive, and everyone else tries to break it up. My initial reaction is: FINALLY. Make examples! Call people out, pull people from games, let’s get this shit under control! I find it interesting, though, that it’s Figgins. Since Figgins was also the guy who was famously dropped to the 9th spot in the batting order earlier this season for a few games. Figgins, if I recall, didn’t take that one too well either. We lost control of this season a long time ago, now it’s officially a trainwreck. Luckily, Officer Branyan is here to keep the peace. That guy is gonna be a veteran presence whether he likes it or not! Jackie Z is meeting with Figgins & Wak today; oh what I would give to be a fly on that wall.
