Wow they are going to most of Vidro's contract in addition to this being a dumb trade. This is a bad trade.

I'll take the under. No one is this dumb. I think the writing's on the wall and Bavasi is making some spiteful moves on the way out.

Word is he already has interviews lined up in Atlanta and Washington. :-D

This kind of deal really makes me appreciate Beane more. Not that I didn't anyways, but still... Do the Mariners really think they can win this year? That's the only thing I can think would make sense with this deal. And even if they did, Vidro doesn't fill any kind of need.

+/- on monthes from today that Bavasi will be fired?

let's try 8

I take over.


The M's will let him finish the year and when they end up last again and attendance has dropped again, they will fire him. He can then go back to the Angels and laugh about how bad the M's are.

My apologies. I have a nephew named Anfernee, and I know how mad he gets when I call him Anthony. Almost as mad as I get when I think about the fact that my sister named him Anfernee.

Wow, this is just an awful deal. With the Soriano-Ramirez deal I thought there had to be more players involved that they just didn't mention at first, but that wasn't the case. But at least that deal could be justified (in theory). This one makes absolutely zero sense, for all the everyone else has already said. There has to be some kind of trade lined up involving Sexson, Broussard, Beltre or SOMEONE for this to even be justifiable. Even then it's stupid, but right now I don't see how there can be any kind of rationale for this at all.

If I owned the team, I would fire Bill Bavasi as soon as I saw this deal. Actually, I would have fired him years ago, but ...

Having Christian Guzman on the pine constitutes a log jam?


Christian Guzman is the reason I will not punt SS ever again.

As it was stated above (somewhere), why didn't they just sign Giles?

They would have kept the players they just traded away, Giles would have been cheaper than Vidro, and less injury prone.


This one doesn't make much sense, unless it's the first of a series of moves... in which case, we'll have to wait and see.

Are you sure that making more moves would be a good idea. 8-o
