LINKAGE: Washburn talking to the media again, Raben still hurting, Angels more patient at the plate

An exciting win last night for the Mariners. When Raul stepped to the plate, I looked at Larry and Kirby Arnold of the Everett Herald and said, "home run."

Damn, I'm good.

How locked in his Raul right now?

From today's game notes ...

* Anyway here is Larry's game story from last night.

* Here's his game notebook that talks about Miguel Batista not starting on Saturday.

* Here's how the St. Pete Times covered the game</strong>. And here is how the Tampa Tribune covered the game.

* After skipping his media session following Wednesday's start, Jarrod Washburn talks about why he decided not to talk.

* The sports blog "The Big Lead" offers up its solutions to fix the Mariners.

As to who will get the call, it should be Ryan Rowland-Smith. The USS Mariner has this post on him as a starter.

* I'm not bragging here, but I'm reasonably intelligent on most things, but even this post on pitching biomechanics on Lookout Landing made me crosseyed. Still it's pretty interesting.

* From the Everett Herald, Dennis Raben is still hurting with a sore finger and hasn't been playing.

* UPDATES in progress
