If you hadn't noticed by now, I'm doing all my blogging these days over at the caffeinated confines: http://mariners.mostvaluablenetwork.com/.  The blog editor is a little more friendly.

I checked the baseball scores and saw that Thornton was pitching a shutout after three. This really surprized me. Then I saw it was Blackley pitching the gem (to date). Wow - that was a quick callup. That's great, but not as surprizing as Thornton would be. Blackley is probably more ready than Nageotte.

Nageotte's had a couple bad outings, but we need to remember that these were typical Freddie Garcia outings of a year ago. He probably should be pitching in AAA right now, but hey, he needs to get his feet wet sooner or later. He seems to be a pretty smart kid and will learn to trust his stuff, and hopefully use it with greater authority.

I guess it's none of our business but I sure am curious as to what happened to Rhett Johnson. The way the Times reports it, players with personal problems apparently go to Peoria. Is there a good shrink or counseling community there or something?
