Financial protest over?!

Could it be? Adrian Beltre a Mariner? Say it IS so!

When I see the announcement, and Mr. Beltre wearing a Mariners jersey, my financial protest will officially be over. I am glad it had to end this way.

Munch -- they're peeling me off the ceiling at work right now, but even in my giddy-ness, I'm not quite caving in yet. Maybe my heart is too hardened by their past sins, but I have declared that the sole signing of Beltran -- not Beltre -- would end my protest, and I'm inclined to stick to my guns. This is great news, definitely, but even if I bumped Beltre to a 3 and gave Sexson the benefit of the doubt and bumped him up to a 1 (instead of the -1 I assigned him) they're currently only at 4. One more positive move will have to do it for me. Sign Perez/Millwood/Lowe/Clement, and I'm definitely going to the team store.

Still, there's very good reason to celebrate. Let's hope there's still more to come!!!

Boy you sure stick to your guns, PosiPaul. I would have ended my boycott for Beltran, too, but Beltre was the other guy who would have done it, (despite the Sexson signing - which I didn't approve of but have come to accept and even kind of like), and that's what happened.

(Now I just have to start saving my money for some tix!)

Why Stop Now???

So, they scored another 1/2 a point by DFA'ing Ugueto.

Why Stop Now?

Why stop now? - I like it.

(At this rate, I sure hope they keep room in the budget for the midseason pitching acquisitions that will allow them to make the playoffs.)
