Well its a start. I just learned the Mariners have released Eric Byrnes, I wish him well. Also Matt Tuiasosopo has been sent down to AAA Tacoma. The Mariners are bringing up infielder Josh Wilson and Outfielder Ryan Langerhans. While neither of these two players bring with them the Long Ball threat, this is a move in the right direction.
However more needs to be done to shake-up this team. I would like to see Figgins and Lopez go back to their natural positions, and while were switching lets switch Figgins to lead-off and bat Ichiro second. Sweeney is on a short-leash as well and if we can get Jermaine Dye for 2-3 million let’s do it, at least until Bedard comes back then trade one or two of our starters for a genuine home-run hitter.
Hopefully the weather here in Seattle will warm up at the end of the week and with it our bats! I look for something else big to happen this week as the honeymoon for Jack Z. is over too.http://jeffsmariners.com
