    If you don’t pay any attention to statistics, you believe WFB contributes something to the Mariners. Similarly, if you look away from your food, you don’t consume any calories.

    So they tell me that Kevin Towers got Soriano for Ramirez by eating six chicken fingers at once. I wonder what we can get back if I eat this whole piece in one bite? Here goes!

    Willie Bloomquist, painfully aware that his angular facial features have long been coveted by Seattle’s top paint-scraping crews, decides to “Bartolo” himself up to avoid being kidnapped and forced into indentured servanthood.

    Willie bloomquist just before an interview with Rick Rizz, “Hold on Rizzy Let me cram this last piece, gotta uphold the image you’ve created for me afterall”

    Later in the interview ” I’ve worked very hard this winter bulking up and staying in shape. I know I’ll only get 350 at bats this year but I want to make the most of my limited opportunities.”

    Hey, this pizza is a redass; and that’s a compliment!
