M’s to make announcement
The Mariners have called a press conference for 11:30 am to make a “major announcement”.
I don’t know what the news is, but here are my guesses.
60% – Ichiro extension
25% – Bavasi/Hargrove extensions
10% – Trade Announcement
5% – Free Ninento Wii for Derek
An extension for Ichiro would make my day.
Late Edit: Commenter ebcmc got this one right – according to Larry Stone (via Geoff Baker), Mike Hargrove is resigning as manager of the Mariners. Given the team’s recent performance, this is almost certainly not baseball related. While we’ve never been huge Mike Hargrove fans, we wish him all the best in his future, and hope that everything is okay with him and his family.
