Our long hitting nightmare is over!:
The Jose Vidro era ended today when the Mariners designated him for assingment. I just drove by him in the Safeco Field parking lot. I was headed in, he was leaving. The Mariners have 10 days to release, trade or demote Vidro to the minors — a move he could refuse. Anyhow, he’s gone.
Wladimir Balentien is back up.
