The Mariners front office makes me feel like a guy who just got out of a real terrible relationship with a jealous, vindictive girlfriend, is scarred, jaded, wondering if you can love again, and then you meet a great girl(or the new M's front office) and they keep surprising you by not being jealous, vindictive, insecure or nonsensical. Instead they trade a middling, but still a prospect with value, a below average utility guy, and no name right handed arms for a raw pitcher and a solid hitting defensive answer at short stop.
I keep waiting for them to screw this up, but it certainly appears a plan is in place. The complete and utter opposite of the Bill Bavasi era.
Griffey is good for one clutch late inning bases clearing double a month. Not sure that makes his .215 average ok though.
