Looks like Bavasi thinks he's not in Venezuela anymore. This quote just stinks to high heaven. What a load!!!!

I'd think twice about sending any of my prospects to the Latin league anymore if I were Bavasi.

Which Latin American country shot the Goalie after their team lost in the World Cup? They are passionate about their sports to say the least.

Given this quote and the timing of Jones being pulled, I think there is going to be some mighty sore feelings in Latin America towards the Mariners for screwing them over ON PURPOSE during their championship series.

I'm trying to pull my head out of the Orioles Hangout and Mariners blogs, etc... and pretend it's like 1997 or something. Typically, you hear a little bit of noise a few days before a trade is agreed to.

I need a break from this, seriously. It's just such a headache sitting around waiting for something to come to fruition any minute when it could be a week away.

How long until your write-off this franchise?

If this all falls apart and we just lose Bedard and Roberts in free agency; do you say - I'm done with the O's until Angelos sells?

Do you become a Nats fan?

I've become apathetic in recent years - but was pretty excited about the full-blown rebuilding. Now....apathy is creeping back in.

I can't ever see myself rooting for anyone other than the O's.

However, each year I get less and less excited about the season. Usually there is a sense of anticipation about the off-season because it's the only time we can really be optomistic. But this off-season has been downright torture. Depending on how the rest of this off-season plays out, I might not even have that to look forward to next year.

One thing is for certain though, I'm made up my mind that barring some drastic changes to the philosophy and long term actions of this franchise, I'm not wasting any more money going to games paying ridiculous prices to watch an inferior product anymore. Losing with young players with potential, I can stand, losing with stop gap, aging, over paid vets, I can't watch anymore.

Thinking back on this whole thing the only thing that seemed fishy to me at the time Jones' comments came out is that they sounded awfully similar to the comments he supposedly made the first time the Mariners ordered him to sit out of his winter league games. I talking more specifically about his comments in regards to being honored to be traded or talked about in a trade for Erik Bedard. I don't know if somebody on here would be able to dig up those comments to see if my recollection is anywhere near or if I'm just imagining things.

I have to say it. Could we have a situation here simialr to the one going on in The Wire? Is a reporter just making stuff up?

This stuff is frustrating and our FO seems to be involved in more than our share of this stuff, but the Seattle front office and media seem to lack total credibility here, IMO. From Churchill to Bavasi to Jones, it's comical.

Our FO and local media has been steadfast in denial of a deal.

The only thing the OH has to go on from an insider perspective are an optimistic text to bb and comments by Belkast.

I'm sure the truth will play out soon, but, on the surface, despite our frustrations this offseason and others, it appears that Seattle is running a high school operation.

OT, but is anyone else shocked that the Baltimore Sun would allow HBO to use them as the centerpiece of such an unflattering storyline based on their company.

Maybe the Seattle media is jealous and is positioning themselves for a spin-off.
