Video: Mariners midseason report with Shannon Drayer and Boy Howdy
With a break in Major League Baseball action this week for the All-Star festivities, it’s as good a time as any to bring back the team of Mariners insider Shannon Drayer and 710 ESPN Seattle’s James “Boy Howdy” Osborn to take stock of what we’ve learned so far this season.
In the latest “vodcast” – or video podcast – featuring the pair, they look at a myriad of Mariners topics. Here’s just a sampling of what they cover in the nearly 45-minute video:
• Domingo Santana’s defense
• Which players are not available on the trade market (it’s a very short list)
• In-depth breakdowns of Mallex Smith, Yusei Kikuchi and Kyle Seager
• The options to be Seattle’s super utility player of the future
• Which prospects to expect to join the team by the end of the season
