Over 30 years ago Edgar Martinez was signed by the Mariners, a beneficiary of his talented cousin Carmelo. Today, odds willing, he will join the National Baseball Hall of Fame, joining Ken Griffey Jr. as the second player to wear the compass rose and be enshrined for eternity. Come tell your stories, gnaw your nails, and feel confident that today, finally, a hero who saved baseball in Seattle will be recognized by the baseball world, and given an honor that he will feel to be more-than-necessary and we will know is more-than-deserved.
