    Mike has been called up by Seattle to hopefully provide that offense with a boost. Zunino started of in AAA on fire, but has cooled as of late. Good luck to Mike!

    Just saw it on MLB channel. Congrats to him. Would be great if he can have same kind of effect on M's as Posey has done in SF. In my dreams the Red Sox trade for him and he has same impact as Varitek did.

    I don't know if Zunino's ready for the big leagues quite yet, but I'm happy he got the call.

    Apparently Tacoma is a tough hitters park. His home/road splits are almost unbelievable. His OPS was literally 700 points higher on the road in similar numbers of plate appearances.

    Z with a 6-pitch K in his first at-bat: SBFBFS (I think)

    Thanks! 2nd at-bat, with one out and a runner on 2nd... foul... called strike... line drive single to center! Runner was held at 3rd because it got to the CF too quickly.

    3rd at-bat, with two out and nobody on... full count (I missed part of it) ground out to 3rd.

    Apparently Z is calling a good game defensively because Houston is being shutout through 6 on just 2 hits. Then again, Houston is arguably the worst team in MLB.

    Z threw out the first attempted steal against him! Scoreless game going to the bottom of the 8th...
