Yep, seriously. The whole appeal of this was that it was supposed to be low-risk, medium potential reward sort of move. It only gets to be bad if they hang on to him past his sell-by date. Deal was designed to let him go if it didn't work, so...

(Chris reads the byline of the article) - What's that you say? Ken Rosenthal and Jon Paul Morosi, you say?

But what if I'm on a diet, budget or both?

Hasn't he suffered enough for his offseason insolence already? Sending him down for perf / roster reasons after all that is just cruel.

Neanderthals, to watch the ensuing human rights / political firestorm while cackling like a supervillain.

Well that's a damn sight better than the leftover homemade spaghetti and sauce I just had for lunch. Well done.

Damn it, for an instant I thought this was news that he WAS designated, not an opinion piece that he SHOULD BE. Freakin' off days before the trade deadline! (I agree with this piece, by the way.)

The exchange rate blows right now, which is why I don't go out of my way to use them.

Or, as noted in the Lego movie which this came from, "Let me handle this - that idea is... just the WORST."

Thought of another one that could speed up the game a bit - no more coaches on the field.

It'd be a P.R. move because really, what proportion of season ticket holders actually attend the majority of games they bought tickets to? Most season ticket holders share / auction / sell their tickets, last I knew.

If he DHs, that's what... Hart DFA, LoMo in right, Morales at 1b? They got Morales. Where does he play if you want Kemp DHing?

I think we should collectively give 3rd base some more love by changing ground rule doubles into ground rule triples. Also by eliminating homeruns - these are now ground rule triples too.

It is a combination of tradition and inside joke. ThundaPC is perpetually positive, even when delivering a clear-eyed view of the season, the Mariners, or why we bother with this dumbass team in the first place. So, he always posts this at a loss.

"Good right-handed power hitters are practically extinct" - I would go one further and remove 'right-handed power' from that. The Mariners just need decent hitters, at all, regardless of handedness or ISO, at this point.

Note also that tuna fish is still better than those square fish sandwiches from McDonald's, he says, stretching the roster metaphor further.

I thought he has bad numbers overall in his career hitting second, and seems to be sensitive to changes in his spot in the batting order overall, I.e. psyching himself out and not following whatever was working at the time.

That was a comment on the state of the team and not the merits of spending caviar money on a tuna fish player.

A wRC+ of 119 would be third on the Mariners behind only Kyle and Robbie. Condor is 113.
