Can we honestly call it 'lack of run production'? It's too bad the Riccardi had to do this. It will leave a black mark on the big guy's Hall of Fame career. I hope he catches on somewhere. Could the Mariners use him as a DH? Yes, I think that they probably could. Why not? Throw a couple million bucks at him. Sounds good. If he is still fit enough to play firstbase, then maybe he could light a fire under Richie Sexson's backside. Maybe DFA Vidro and then sign Thomas? What do you think?
