Mariners acquired infielder Tug Hulett from the Rangers for first baseman Ben Broussard.

Ben Broussard wasn't very good for us. Over a year and a half he only hit .260 in Seattle, and his sweet lefty swing never took as much of a liking to Safeco's right field porch as it should've. As a 31 year old platoon bat with a barely passable glove, Broussard just isn't worth to the Mariners what he was going to cost.

And yet, I'm sad. I'll be honest, I don't even remember when or why I started liking Broussard so much, but they say love is blind, so I imagine that has something to do with it. Ben, you've always been totally awesome, even when you sucked, and when you pointed, I know you were pointing at me.

Have fun kicking our asses in Texas. May Arlington provide to you a welcome respite from Safeco's frigid embrace.

As for me, at least I can take solace in the fact that oh my god did we seriously tender Horacio a fucking contract
