Softy and Dick are live at Jimmy's before another Mariners home game. With the way the season has been going, there isn't as much excitement around T-Mobile Park as there has been in the past. When the team struggles, everyone around it struggles. Yes, this was supposed to be a rebuilding year, but the players don't even seem motivated. How much of this should Scott Servais be blamed for? All of the M's' top five draft picks were college-level pitchers. Clearly Dipoto wants fresh arms in the rotation, and he wants them sooner rather than later. There might be a higher ceiling with some high school prospects, but it's potentially going to take longer for them to develop. The high school football championships are leaving the Tacoma Dome, and Softy says it's a good thing. The facility is a dump. Time to find a better venue. Jason Churchill brings insight to the Mariners' first several draft picks and more.
