Leone moves on
In case you missed it — Justin Leone signed a minor league deal (scroll down) with the San Diego Padres last week. Leone was a favorite among many M’s bloggers, but to be honest, he was never going to get a shot in Seattle. Whether or not he deserved much of one given his age and performance last season is another issue. I wish him well in San Diego, though he’s of course now stuck behind both Vinny Castilla and Sean Burroughs.
