Via Larry Stone:
So the money for 2006 is pretty much exactly what we expected, although the news about the 2007 option is less than encouraging. Even if Everett hits, I don't want him coming back for a second year. I do have my principles.
The next paragraph is worse:
We've got a good pitcher, a bad one, a worse one, and a guy who's currently in a Baltimore jail. Pray for Millwood. Everyone else is just a bigger waste of resources than Everett.
The last thing I want to mention:
Isn't that what managers are for? Where's Hargrove in all this? Does his apparently inadequacy in the clubhouse really make it necessary to spend $4m on an obstinate motivational speaker?
Last night I had a dream that Carl Everett hit 50 home runs for the Mariners, and grabbed his crotch at home plate after each one. I'm not really sure what to make of that, except that the absence of Eliza Dushku was rather stunning and peculiar. But that's neither here not there.
