Arthur Lee!

Or as baseball players are likely to call him, Rhodes-y.

Yes the Mariners signed Arthur Rhodes to a minor league deal with a Spring Training invite. Normally I like these types of moves, all upside with no real downside, if the guy can still pitch, great, otherwise he's out of here. Plus Arthur was a favorite of mine from the good Mariners, and, in general, is a baaaaad man.

On the other hand, with Numbnuts as our manager, the danger is that he hangs onto Arthur Lee because of his veteran-ness or his left handed-ness or some other stupid reason. The danger is that he puts Arthur ahead of Sherrill in the pecking order. The danger is that some young player gets lopped off the 40 man to make room for Rhodes at the end of Spring Training.

The danger is that with this front office and manager, they could seriously screw up a nice move like this. Bleah.
