Hello Mr. Rodney. Hope all is well.
Quick inquiry, as you had many of us slightly upset today.
I hope you don't take this personally, because I love you. I love what you have done this season, and I'm sure I'm not the only one. I was tepidly excited when you signed with the Mariners this offseason, and will be the first to admit both surprise but also understanding over your success so far in 2014.
Here's the thing though.
Please don't do that again.

1. September callups are right around the corner, and Lloyd has suggested he isn't too keen on jeopardizing a playoff run to get some kids extra playing time. How do you feel about this--and--who (and how) do you hope the M's integrate when rosters expand?
2. Are you pulling for any other teams to make the playoffs this season, or are you too invested in the M's to care?
3. Have you been watching any of the Simpsons marathon on FXX? If so (and if not) what is your favorite Simpsons episode?
