So you wanted more for Aaron Harang. So did the Dodgers. Heck, so did the Colorado Rockies. But the market is what the market is, and apparently it wasn't much. The Rockies sent the recently acquired Harang to the Seattle Mariners on Thursday. The right-hander never made a pitch for Colorado. Look at his very serviceable 10-10 record with a 3.61 ERA with the Dodgers in 2012, and you could well think maybe they could have done better. Going to go out on a limb here and say they tried.

SEATTLE -- Josh Hamilton injured his left thumb sliding head-first into first base Tuesday night, but that didn't prevent the Angels left fielder from giving Major League Baseball two thumbs down to an instant-replay ruling in the fifth inning of the Angels' 5-3 loss to the Seattle Mariners. With a runner on second and one out, Corey Hart lofted a fly ball to deep left that Hamilton appeared to catch above his head and pull toward his body, but the ball squirted out on the glove-to-hand transfer and fell to the ground.

Felix Hernandez entered Thursday night's game in Angel Stadium with a 99-25 record and 2.89 earned-run average in 162 career starts in which the Seattle Mariners gave him two or more runs of support. So when the 2010 American League Cy Young Award winner, one of baseball's best pitchers, took a three-run lead to the mound in the first inning and a seven-run lead in the third, a Seattle victory seemed as much a foregone conclusion as a Tiger Woods tap-in putt from four inches. Until the Angels started teeing off. BOX SCORE: Angels 10, Seattle 9 The Angels pounded Hernandez for seven straight hits, including homers by Peter Bourjos and Mark Trumbo, in a five-run fifth, tied the game in the sixth, fell behind in the eighth and scored twice in the bottom of the eighth for a dramatic 10-9 comeback win over the Mariners, their most stirring victory of the season.

SEATTLE -- Josh Hamilton has a complete tear of the ulnar collateral ligament in his left thumb and said he will undergo surgery in the coming days, a procedure that could sideline the hot-hitting Angels left fielder for six to eight weeks. Hamilton, who injured the thumb on a head-first slide into first base in the seventh inning of Tuesday night's 5-3 loss to the Seattle Mariners, also tore a capsule in the thumb. He was placed on the 15-day disabled list and replaced on the roster by outfielder J.B. Shuck, who was recalled from triple-A Salt Lake.

SEATTLE - Jerome Williams delivered his third straight shoddy start in an 8-3 loss to the Seattle Mariners in Safeco Field on Friday night, a 3 1/3-inning, six-run, seven-hit effort that assured the Angels will take a losing record into the All-Star break. The Angels, who entered the series with a major league-best 17-8 record since June 12, could have moved one game over .500 with a sweep, but the loss dropped them to 44-47 two games before the break. The Angels haven't had a .500 record since they were 1-1 on April 3, and they were 11 games under (27-38)

The Seattle Mariners have traveled 6,500 miles in the last nine days. They have faced elimination four times, and have won four nerve-racking games to keep their season alive, coming from behind in the final three games against the New York Yankees to win a best-of-five division series they trailed, 2-0.

Mike Marshall, the former Dodger, sits in the Seattle Mariners' clubhouse with no guarantees. He is 33, back from a bad experience in Japan, and trying to win a job as the Mariners' right-handed designated hitter, his onetime promise rubbed out on too many trainer's tables. "I'd by lying if I said it wasn't frustrating," Marshall said of the misplaced opportunities. "I'd be lying if I said I didn't think I could be sitting here with 2,000 hits, 300 home runs and a $5-million contract.

It has been two weeks now since Newport Beach developer George Argyros made his move to buy the San Diego Padres, in effect telling the Seattle Mariners that they were geographically undesirable. Argyros, the Mariners' owner for the past six years, said the Padres' purchase was appealing because it would allow him to be closer to his home and other business interests.

Chuck Finley's forkball returned from an extended spring break, and so did Finley's winning form. After flailing through a dismal spring, the Angels' left-hander on Tuesday night pitched with the command and control that enabled him to win a career-high 18 games last season. Making his first opening-day start a successful one, Finley pitched 7 1/3 strong innings as the Angels held off the Seattle Mariners, 3-2, in front of a crowd of 53,671 at the Kingdome.

The leadership of Major League Baseball is rethinking a recently adopted prohibition against foreign ownership of franchises, Baseball Commissioner Fay Vincent said Tuesday, in light of the controversy over a Japanese-backed offer to buy the Seattle Mariners. Vincent said it will be "difficult" for the proposed sale of the team to be approved under current rules that were quietly adopted by an ownership committee in December.

SEATTLE -- X-rays on Josh Hamilton's left thumb, which he injured in a head-first slide into first base trying to beat out a seventh-inning grounder Tuesday night, were negative, but the Angels left fielder will undergo an MRI test on Wednesday to determine if there is any ligament or tendon damage. “It hurts,” Hamilton said after the Angels' 5-3 loss to the Seattle Mariners at Safeco Field. “It stinks that it happened. I don't know how many times I've done that before and this has never happened.

KEY MOMENT: Of the 41 runs given up this season by the Angels, 28 have come with two outs, including 23 by the Mariners, who were poised to strike again in the third inning when they put runners on second and third with two outs. But right-hander Garrett Richards struck out cleanup hitter Justin Smoak swinging at a nasty curve in the dirt to snuff out the threat. AT THE PLATE: Albert Pujols crushed his second home run in as many days, a two-run shot to left field in the third inning that moved the slugger past Lou Gehrig and Fred McGriff and into 26th on the all-time list with 494 home runs.

SAN DIEGO -- The Dodgers added a shortstop to their 40-man roster Wednesday, claiming Carlos Triunfel off outright waivers from the Seattle Mariners. Truinfel, 24, was optioned to triple-A Albuquerque. Triunfel was originally signed by then-Mariners scout Bob Engle in 2006. Engle is now the Dodgers vice president of international scouting. Triunfel was rated the 30th-best prospect in all of baseball by MLB.com in 2009. He played his first eight major league games with the Mariners last year.

In one corner of the Angels clubhouse Tuesday night there was at least some sense of urgency after an 8-3 loss to the Seattle Mariners dropped the club to 0-2 on the season. The Angels, remember, killed their playoff hopes by going 17-32 in the previous two Aprils. “We're not in spring training anymore -- these are real games,” pitcher C.J. Wilson said after allowing six runs and eight hits in 5 2/3 innings. “We need to put our best foot forward every night and try to win games.

Josh Hamilton nearly scolded a reporter for asking if, in light of the Angels' brutal Aprils of 2012 and 2013, there was concern that a "here-we-go-again" mentality could creep into the clubhouse with another sluggish start. "We haven't thought about that, so stop thinking about it," the Angels left fielder said. "Talk to me in a like a week and a half. Guys are getting their feel, getting settled in, not only here but at home. We'll be good. " Getting their feel? Getting settled in?

KEY MOMENT: The Angels put the first two runners on base in the first inning when Kole Calhoun doubled to right field and Mike Trout walked. But Albert Pujols grounded into a double play and David Freese lined out to center field, killing the rally and setting the tone for a frustrating evening. The Angels scored twice in the ninth on Trout's run-scoring triple and Freese's sacrifice fly. AT THE PLATE: Justin Smoak capped a superb series with a ninth-inning home run, giving the Seattle first baseman six hits, including two home runs, and seven runs batted in. Corey Hart also singled and homered, and Brad Miller, Robinson Cano and Stefen Romero each had two hits and an RBI for the Mariners.

The Kroc Era in San Diego baseball drew to a close Thursday when it was announced that Joan Kroc had accepted an offer from Orange County developer George Argyros to purchase the Padres. A purchase price was not divulged, but Kroc was reportedly asking between $50 million and $65 million for the National League club that her late husband, Ray, purchased for $12 million in 1974.

He was their Ray of hope, and of sunshine. On a dim opening night, Johnny Ray was a point of light for the Angels--one of far too few. The Angels managed only five hits in a 7-4 loss to Seattle at Anaheim Stadium. Ray had two. They scored four runs. Ray scored three, and the one he didn't score, he drove in with a sacrifice fly. The Angels' season at the plate began with a strikeout by Devon White. Up stepped Ray, who drove the second pitch over the right-center field wall for a homer.

It will be weeks, probably months, before Don Baylor can return to the Angels as their full-time hitting coach after he underwent surgery Tuesday to repair a fractured right femur, a freak injury Baylor suffered while catching the ceremonial first pitch before Monday night's season opener. But Baylor's soothing voice will remain in the heads of hitters when they step into the batter's box. "He talked a lot about confidence, about staying within yourself, about keeping the train going," third baseman David Freese said before Tuesday night's 8-3 loss to the Seattle Mariners in Angel Stadium.

For more than two decades, the West Coast has played the part of Major League Baseball's strange uncle. You know, the one who is invited to the family reunion but hardly ever gets to sit at the head table. In the last 22 seasons, only three teams west of the Rockies - the team and the mountain range - have won a World Series. In 17 of those seasons, a team from the Pacific time zone didn't even advance to the game's biggest showcase. However, the tide may be turning. In the National League, San Francisco has won two of the last three championships and the Dodgers, with the game's highest payroll and best pitcher in 26-year-old Clayton Kershaw, seem poised to begin a dynasty.
