On Nick Franklin and Promotions
I guess this is the off-day topic du jour: should the Mariners promote Nick Franklin , who was hitting .400/.524/.600 in Tacoma before his 0-4 night tonight? Marc emailed me to find out if I had a take, so I guess I should weigh in.

MLB Scores: Mariners take late lead, hang on to beat Angels 2-1
