Spring Training Flashback

As I was listening to the Mariners get whacked yesterday in a meaningless spring game, I was reminded of the past ineptitude of the front office.

Boy genius here was running the show at the time. Boy oh boy, doesn't he look about as bright as a sack of potatoes. No disrespect meant to potatoes.

With the 6th pick in the 2006 draft we could have had this 3 time All-Star, 2 time Cy Young award winner and World Series champion. And he is a local kid after all.

Instead, Bill decided to draft this guy, who they couldn't decide if he should start or come out of the bullpen. Once, Bill finally got fired, Jack Z had seen enough of him and sent him to Toronto for this guy.

 I'm not a big fan of either Brandon, when we could have had "The Freak" along side Felix. As a side note, Felix and Michael Pineda both looked good in their outings against Oakland today.

That would have been an awesome top 3 in my opinion. Oh what could have been....

  1. I, for one, would love to have all four of my PCs playing for the same team. But short of going back in time and locking Bill Bavasi in a broom closet just before the Mariners' pick, I don't know what else I could do to make that happen.

    Maybe if the Mariners get really good just before Lincecum becomes a free agent. But I think he really likes it in S.F.
