Seattle Mariners Blog:
Please, someone out there, kidnap Richie Sexson and take him far, far away from playing baseball in the major leagues for the Seattle Mariners. You really think this team is going to be able to make the post season with this guy batting 4th? Another stellar performance last night with 3 strikeouts (one with the bases loaded) and an error. Hey Richie Rich, great job in being a freak at 6-8 and getting into the majors and making zillions of dollars. Guess what? Your time is up! Get out while you can, get out while you can still show your face in the state you grew up in. You CANNOT HIT!!! You will NEVER hit over .250!!!!!!! I'd rather see Morse in there at 1st base, a guy that can at least hit .275!!!! I'd take a sacrafice fly with the bases loaded vs. a strikeout any day of the week. We in Seattle can assess good talent, and you are not good talent. Why do you think we boooooed Shaun Alexander so much last year? Because he can NO longer break a 25 yard plus run.
Prove us wrong oh Richie Rich, but your days are done. Go somewhere else, give this team a shot at competiting with the Angels.
