Washburn hurting

Uh oh. Jarrod Washburn's elbow tendinitis will be preventing him from making his next start.

We saw what happened last night when our starting pitching isn't stellar ... the hitting gets demoralized and a Seattle pitcher not named Hernandez looks like ex-Mariner Randy Johnson.

Rookie Joe Saunders will take over Washburn's 3rd starter duties at least for one start.

I will cast my vote for keeping Kelvim Escobar in the bullpen for now. No time to hit the panic button. With Rich Harden and Bobby Crosby hurt for Oakland, we still have to be considered the favorites for this final stretch of games.

Meanwhile in Boston, Johnny Damon is going to have an MRI on his shoulder. It is called justice you idiots.
