    Liked him when he was with the Rays, the exact opposite of Gomes.. That being actually useful with the glove and played the game full-tilt in the field, as well as not an auto strikeout at the plate. typical Tampa type player in other words and a shame they don’t have a spot open.. maybe they have something for him at AAA if he can’t get a job.

  3. He shouldn’t have been invited by the Mariners anyway this spring.
