    Imagine that happening in Twins' Territory...
    I can't imagine it happening in Seattle, either. That's kind of why it's such a big story.

    The result certainly didn't pan out for the Mariners but given just how god-awful Silva had been in the previous two seasons, I still think it was a decent roll of the dice.

    Sometimes you get burned by even a good bet. I don't fault the Mariners for swapping out useless contracts in hope something good would come of it.

    My point had been the "good bet" only appeared that way because the national perception of Milton Bradley hadn't quite caught on to him yet. The guy was a broken down clown - they would've been better off paying Carlos Silva in Taco Bell gift cards and calling it a day.

    When there are areas that need improvement, it’s my job to ask questions, suggest ideas and give direction to the field staff. When our upper management has questions or suggestions, it’s my job to respond to them. I don’t believe meddling is a fair portrayal.

    IOW, Wedge's account was accurate.

    After a very quick read. this seems like a reasonable response and illustrative that there are 2 sides to every story (Wedge actually asked for a contract extension the day before he was gone?). I have to think that the M's are all-in on getting Tanaka, in which case, they would move to legit contender status in the AL West.
