From what I can tell, Rafael Soriano really has been traded for Horacio Ramirez. This is the worst trade the Mariners have made in a long, long time. More on this later when I'm able to pull myself out of a pool of my own tears.
Update: As of 6:11pm EDT, there's still an air of uncertainty surrounding this deal. Half an hour ago it sounded all but done, but now the M's are denying it, soooooo...
9:04pm update: Bad news, everyone.
9:24pm update: I officially have no idea what's going on anymore, and I really don't give a crap. Something either needs to happen or not happen so we can be done with it and move on.
