Need a new 3B Coach! 

Bases loaded, one out, down by two and Ichiro slides a single through the right side of the infield. What do you do?

You've got decent speed in Yuniesky Betancourt rounding third, but you are contending with the arm of Vladamir Guerrero.

The key to this whole decision is the realization that you have Mr. Double Play, Jose Vidro, on deck.

You have gotta be aggressive and go for the run and the tie game!

Predictably, the Mariners strand all three baserunners and trail by one heading into the bottom of the fourth.

If we lose this game by a run, it will be the second loss in a week where blame can be laid squarely on our third base coach (ran us out of several runs in 13-12 loss to Devil Rays a week ago).

I've about given up on my dream of the M's firing Hargrove, or any coach for that matter, so maybe its time to aim lower and just hope to get Carlos Garcia sent back to coach 1B where he can't do so much damage.

Come on M's, Rally for the King, and get us back over the HUMP!
