The end of Carl
I was hoping this would go up on the Mariners’ transaction wire so I could point to the official news, but I’ve waited too long already. Everett cleared waivers and was released on Thursday. He won’t be showing up in Tacoma, if you were worried about that. Unfortunately, it looks like he also won’t be eating playing time for one of our divisional rivals.
I don’t really care about, though. He’s gone. May this debacle serve as yet another example that buying clubhouse leadership, grit, and hustle is a fool’s errand. I hope that this one finally causes the lesson to stick.
Which reminds me, I posted these and then the post got nuked in the great server crash. I present — memories of better days.
