And that’s a really nice dinner, too — that money goes straight to the food!
Article on Matsui’s press conference, including an awful-looking photo, is available over on ESPN.com.
We’ve begun to finalize plans for the U.S.S. Mariner Feed. Here is the vital information for those who have not expressed interest in attending as of yet:
Date: Saturday, December 20th
Time: 4 p.m.
Cost: $15.00 per person, dinner included
If you missed one of our earlier postings or just never got around to dropping us a line and telling you wanted to come, then do so now. Put “Feed Information” in the subject of the message, and I will add you to the mailing list for the feed, which includes more details on the event. Space is somewhat limited, but we do have room for more folks, so if you want to come, you still can.
Alex Rodriguez won his first MVP, after being the most valuable player in the American League for the 5th time in his career. Congrats to the voters who finally overcame their stupidity and recognized that he shouldn’t be punished for his teammates failures. Just to show that they aren’t out of the woods yet, though, Shannon Stewart finished 3rd and David Ortiz finished 5th. Yea…
By virtue of finishing 10th (ye gods, thats way too low), Bret Boone gets an additional $250,000 in salary next year. Expect a press conference tommorrow where Howard Lincoln will blame Boone’s bonus for global hunger. Or, at least, lay the foundation for why this crippling blow to the budget will force us to let (insert free agent here) walk away. The joys of being a Mariner fan. Even when your players get good news, you know management is preparing a doom-and-gloom press release for the next day.
Matsui’s coming to the US. Had a press conference and everything.
