Yuni has some new teammates April 30, 2008

As everyone’ll tell you (USSMariner, Mariners Insider, Enjoy The Enjoyment, plus the mainstream media), the Mariners have brought up Wladimir Balentien and Jeff Clement, the prides of Curacao (except for the architecture and Andruw Jones) and Marshalltown, Iowa (except for the nice 9-screen movie theatre and Cap Anson) respectively. The M’s DFA’d Brad Wilkerson and Miguel Cairo Greg Norton? Norton? Really? The guy who’s second on the team in WPA?
In his last game with the M’s yesterday, Wilkerson was 3 for 3. Too little, too late, I guess. In the same game, Cairo had a stolen base. John McLaren loves aggressive base runners.

Here’s the video of Yuniesky Betancourt’s home run during Sunday’s loss to the A’s. It barely cleared the left field fence. Perhaps Yuni wanted to make sure the A’s relievers had enough balls in the bullpen.

And, as long as I’m not really posting about Yuni, you should go read Luke Burbank’s story on surviving the M’s locker room in 1996, while trying to file a story about Alex Rodriguez. Also, listen to his radio show on KIRO, Too Beautiful to Live.
