You have an idiot in Bill Bavasi running the team, who has consistently signed terrible FAs to big contracts.
Clement had a lot of pressure when he was brought up since the Ms thought he'd come in right away and hit .300 as a DH, something he's never played. 15 games isn't enough to prove anyone.
Bavasi signed Johjima to a three-year extension so they had to play him to justify it, even though playing Clement at catcher would've made better sense. And I think the games that Clement did play in the field, he started to hit. Then Vidro got healthy, and they felt they had to play him at DH and hence there was no room for Clement and they didn't want him to sit.
It's a poorly run organization in Seattle, and they have no clue what the hell they're doing up there.
