Sportsline: Put a Hit on Boom-Boom
Larry Dobrow has an article up at Sportsline taking stock of the Mariners.
There’s a lot of advice to the M’s here, some good, some asinine, but it’s a well-written piece that gets off a few hilarious lines. Take suggestion five, for example:
5. Purchase a subscription to Soldier of Fortune and see if there’s a heavily armed go-getter willing to take care of Bloomquist once and for all. There’s no greater indictment of Bavasi, Mike Hargrove and the Seattle brainiacs than that they remain willing (as evidenced by the recently extended contract) to sacrifice 200 outs at the altar of Bloomquist and his ghastly bat. Short of the entire active roster oversleeping and missing the bus to the stadium, he shouldn’t be on the field. Ever.
If that isn’t enough to justify a leisurely Sunday read, well, it’s a good thing it’ll be Monday here in Japan in four short hours.
