Wilkerson Signed

Perhaps another piece of the puzzle has fallen into place. According to The Times, Brad Wilkerson has signed a 1 year deal with the Mariners. Can Erik Bedard be far behind?

Jones+ for Bedard?

According to Geoff Baker over at The Times, the deal is almost done. The wisdom of this deal depends on your point of view, but as I have said since I started this blog, I want to see the entire deal (including any follow on deals) before I make up my mind. Either way, at least something appears to finally be happening.

Edit: Or not. Lots of conflicting reports today - not sure whether the deal will actually go down or not. I am starting to think that I would rather see the 2008 M's compete with Bedard rather than Jones et al - give me a shot at winning now rather than a couple of years down the road. They weren't that far out of the hunt last year - and the addition of Silva and Bedard will certainly improve the biggest problem from the 2007 campaign.

Willie Ballgame

An interesting article today in The Kitsap Sun concerning Mr. Willie Bloomquist. He's certainly viewed as the hometown hero here in Kitsap County, but check the article for the details (especially the comment concerning the blogosphere).

Happy New Year

Just realized that I have not made a post in 2008 yet. There, now I have. :)

Edit: I also just realized that I really sucked as a blogger last year - less than 100 posts. Not too good. I will either blog properly in 2008 or give it up altogether.
