I saw the headline when I just went to check my teams and I nearly shed a tear. :-D

New GMs first line of business: Rip up Kenji Johjima's new contract....IMMEDIATELY.

Glorious news. Hopefully they hire a smart guy with some vision (Chris Antonetti!) as opposed to some retread "baseball man" (Cam Bonifay!). With the money coming off the books in the next couple years and the money they've got, a smart GM could turn it around in a hurry. Hopefully Cairo, Sexson, and Vidro get DFA'd today, Bedard and Beltre (if he doesn't have interest in re-signing) are on the block ASAP, and maybe someone gets desperate and/or stupid enough to take Batista and Washburn off our hands. That all may be too much to ask though. :-D

Congrats BP. I imagine you feel as good right now as I did the day I heard LaMar and Naimoli would no longer have anything to do with the Rays organization. ;-D

Congrats, but as an A's fan I'm kind of disappointed.
The Mariners had a virtual holy trinity of retards in various managing positions, and now they won't.(Bavasi/Elia/Stottlemyre)
;-D

Good stuff. Seattle is one of the teams in the AL I like to see do well. Hopefully this is step one towards turning things around. ;-D

Clement is probably the happiest guy in the world right now. He had to of been thinking "What did I do wrong?" when he was demoted and slugging better than everybody else on the team at the time.

Too bad the damage has already been done and renewed after giving Silva and Johjima contracts. !+)

I hope they are interested in giving DePo a shot, that would be an entertaining divisional duel. ;-D

There are some GMs about who are wizards at moving bad money. I'm sure someone will be able to do something with those contracts, even if 5 other teams pay for them. :-?
