Well folks we have some fresh news for ya:
Expecting the #Mariners to make at least one move with the pitching today. Adrian Sampson joining the team in Boston.— Shannon Drayer (@shannondrayer) June 17, 2016
That's right, Adrian Sampson, the Skyline High School product and thus local boy, appears to be Shipping Out To Boston to play with his hometown squad for the first time. Without a corresponding move, it's difficult to speculate whether this is a move to bolster the bullpen, as Sampson has been used as a starter down in AAA Tacoma, or something...else. Speculation may be that Felix is going on the DL for a long time, or maybe Steve Johnson has finally seen his time come to an end in Seattle. WHO KNOWS!?
What this does represent, is the first player to wear a Mariner uniform that I hit a bomb off of. Sure, we were sixteen, but it's a fact. So, cool day for me. Hope you're having a cool day too.
We will update as the second shoe drops.
Also, quit dropping your shoes all over the place you filthy animal.
