Offseason Rumors, Part One

There are currently rumors swirling about over the signing of Carl Everett (left). This news is not only of grave concern to this humble writer, but almost entirely without merit. Carl Everett, despite having just played for the world champion Chicago White Sox, is not what I would call a player that fits in with the Seattle Mariners team image. For one thing, the Mariners tend to go for marketable players like Ichiro (mysterious Japanese superstar), Willie Bloomquist (spunky local kid with a heart of gold) and Richie Sexson (hero to DUI survivors everywhere) on their roster. A guy with Everett's checkered past simply does not fit. M's fans, homosexuals and dinosaurs everywhere need not worry.
