We're Getting Linked!

Looks like LeoneForThird as well as the Mariner Optimist have us linked in their M's blog list. Yay! Now maybe there is a slight chance that more than two people will actually read this blog. Not that we don't have anything more to say than the other 99 M's blogs out there, but then again maybe we do...

Bah! In regard to your opinion that you sent to the M's, you left out an important name. Troy Glaus. If we can get him for 5 mil or less a season, with a games played clause in his contract, then I say go for it! If he is hurt his $ goes down. If he is healthy he could hit 40 HR's and 110 rbi.

Sign Delgado too, and you have improved a ton.

You write a Seattle Mariners baseball blog. It's a tough niche to get into.

The referrer logs in the Mariner blogosphere are foolproof. We can out any new Mariner blog with sickening efficiency.

Wow - we're famous. I guess I'll have to get all crazy and pull a Cobain now! ;-)

I haven't been able to get on the Web too much lately, but I did catch a false rumor on the P-I Blog. It said that Koskie had signed a contract with the M's. Now, this is the second time I'd seen someone post erroneous information to that effect. What is the deal with that? Doesn't someone have better things to do than to create an entire false news item that caused me to go into cardiac arrest twice? Not cool.

If the M's are even thinking about signing Koskie, what about just giving Dobbs or Leone the job? They'd be a heck of a lot cheaper, LH bats, good defense, strong arms. Another possibility might be Morse in a few years (link goes to same site as the Dobbs link).

Of course, my first choice is Adrian Beltre, naturally.



How about those Seahawks? They won again today. They tried as hard as they could to lose it, but Boulware apparently hasn't been indoctrinated into how to be a Seahawk. Great play!

They got that fake piece of Koskie news from me. They completely ignored the disclaimers in the introduction and conclusion of the piece that noted the article as a parody.

Jeff:
I had read on USS Mariner that you created this story as satire.

I guess my comment should then be, (instead of asking why someone would take the time to create an entire false news item), asking why someone would malevolently post that false item as fact on the P-I blog. That's a pretty deceitful deed, trying to mislead people that way. I don't have a problem with the story - as long as it does include the disclaimer that it is intended to be satire - but either someone was too dumb to notice the disclaimer, or is a jerk. Either way, the effect was not positive upon my person.

Rickey Henderson would like to point out to all his many Seattle fans that the Mariners need Rickey. Rickey will not be denied. He is the greatest that ever played the game. Even those two first basemen who were teammates of Rickey's who BOTH wore batting helmets in the field, acted like Rickey was crazy. Rickey finds it odd that two different cats, one when Rickey was with the Mets, and the other when Rickey was with the Mariners, would choose to wear a batting helmet I the field.

Thank you for your support, Rickey H.
