The Mariners sign 36 year-old “scrappy” veteran Willie Bloomquist, possessor of both a pedigree with the M’s, and a local connection, to a two-year contract at between $2.5 and $3 million per.

To quote Dave Cameron over at USS Mariner:
Judge for yourself if the Mariners have actually learned anything from their past mistakes. Judge for yourself if this organization has any idea how to actually build a baseball team.
This is a good reason for promotion and relegation in baseball. Let them get relegated, because at this point it’s the only way they might learn something.
