MARINERS AND MLB

David Aardsma and Russell Branyan both named to SI.com’s All-Unexpected team

Obviously a tough loss for the M’s yesterday. Down 3-0 in the ninth the Orioles get help from costly errors, rallying for 5 runs to beat the Mariners 5-3. Read the gasme stories in the Times and PI online.

Worried about the bullpen after a couple of bad outings in a row? You’re not alone.

Jason Vargas was effective despite allowing a base runner in every inning- He’ll be counted on if Jarrod Washburn or Erik Bedard is traded at the deadline. He joins the show at 1:10 although it seems like he’ll be heading to Tacoma at least until after the break. Geoff Baker says Chris Shelton is being called up to the Mariners from Tacoma, also Yuniesky Betancourt started at second base yesterday in a rehab start.

Adam Moore is a star in the making in Tacoma; one of the few players you know won’t be going anywhere at the trade deadline.

Health problems in Anaheim. Two prominent Angel hitters are getting MRI’s at the same time. Good news for the M’s…

White Sox manager Ozzie Guillen jokingly speculates that Bartolo Colon’s disappearance may be due to his mourning of Michael Jackson. Colon still has not been reached.

SEAHAWKS AND NFL

Former Dallas Cowboys linebacker Greg Ellis says that starting linebacker DeMarcus Ware hid from coaches so Ellis could get more playing time. This is a crazy story and Brock is going to weigh in on this today…

11 Seahawks and former Seahawks, highlighted by Mike Holmgren, Walter Jones, and Lofa Tatupu, were named to ESPN.com’s NFC west all-decade team.

The Deion Branch trade has been thought of as a disappointment but he has outperformed nearly all of the other receivers available in 2007

Kelly Jennings is now listed as the #3 right CB on the Seahawk’s depth chart; surprisingly Kevin Hobbs is listed as the #2 left CB

NFL commissioner Roger Goodell looks back on his climb of Mt. Rainier.

ETC…

In a 4-team trade the Dallas Mavericks acquired Shawn Marion from the Toronto Raptors
