Jeff Harris Update Means Seey'all Later

Hey all. Well, this will likely be the last Jeff Harris update I pester you all with. As has been discussed, the Mariners let Jeff become a free agent at the end of last season whem his contract ran out. He has been pitching (well) in the Venezuelan Winter League during the off-season.

On the first day of free agent signings, Jeff was contacted by the Cleveland Indians and he is going to be given a shot to win the role of long reliever/spot starter with the Indians this year. Jeff appreciates the opportunities the Mariners gave him while he was here, but he is really excited about this chance (and it's good to be wanted, or so I hear...).

Man Jeff, I am going to miss your wit, wisdom, and perspective. And I'll miss sharing the ups and downs of the M's with the rest of you. What a great bunch of people you all are!! I guess I'll check out the Indians blogsite, which I imagine gets fewer hits in a year than Player A got in his time with the M's. I'll look forward to talking to all of you whenever the M's and Indians play.

Oh, and it wouldn't hurt if you rooted for Jeff Harris just a little (at least when he isn't pitching against the M's). So I'll see you all later, good people (hey look, nobody was sworn at this time!).
