    Richie Sexson Released

    Mariners | Mariners release Richie Sexson | Seattle Times Newspaper

    Richie Sexson has been released from the Seattle Mariners today. You can't be to surprised as he has totally sucked for some time.

    Maybe he can go back to Milwaukee and have some success. Though, as a Cubs fan I don't want that to happen.

    I'm sure someone will pick him up, since Seattle will be on the hook for his 14 million dollar contract.

    Re: Richie Sexson Released

    He can't hit the curve and his bat is too slow to keep up with the Fast Ball on a consistent basis. So I guess that means he is headed to the Yankees.

    I'm a Yankee fan so I can say that.

    I wonder if this means they have plans of moving Jeff Clement to first base? I heard people speculate on that early on in the year

    If Paul Konerko has decided that he enjoys truly sucking now, he wouldn't be a bad insurance policy for the Sox, but, as for right now, I want to give some more time to PK.

    Pedro Cerrano: Bats, they are sick. I cannot hit curveball. Straightball I hit it very much. Curveball, bats are afraid. I ask Jobu to come, take fear from bats. I offer him cigar, rum. He will come.
    Eddie Harris: You know you might think about taking Jesus ****** as your savior instead of fooling around with all this stuff.
    Roger Dorn: [Shoot], Harris.
    Pedro Cerrano: Jesus, I like him very much, but he no help with curveball.

    Hats for bats, keep bats warm!

    I'm pretty sure at 14 mil a year he's not drowning in his sorrows right now...

    I would like to state that I called this one week ago.

    The Yankees will only have to pay Sexson the prorated minimum of $390,000 from his $14 million salary with the Mariners. Seattle is eating the remainder of the nearly $6 million Sexson is owed for the season.
