The Mariners picked up former Met farmhand Yusmeiro Petit off waivers, and Lookout Landing provides a nice writeup on the right-hander. Petit’s Minor League numbers, short stuff and all, are simply too good to ignore. The home run has been his bugaboo, but maybe pitching at Safeco Field will help him.
James at Amazin’ Avenue explains what would be on the cover of Duh! Magazine if it weren’t so hard for some people to grasp: “The goal is to score more runs than you allow.” It doesn’t really matter how you do that, so long as you do it frequently and convincingly.
Now the nonsense begins.
