As I write this around dinnertime on Saturday, who the hell knows if Washburn'll actually be getting the start? This is about as lame duck as it gets. If he does take the mound one final time as a Mariner, I'd pay good money to see him get ripped apart and taken out of the game by Kenji Johjima, who approaches him holding a Yankee jersey and a switchblade. Be it tonight, tomorrow, or in a couple of days - good riddance, Jarrod. I will forever cherish that one memory we share together, the one where I sat here grinning like an idiot and your ass got traded.
You've earned it, Dave.
