keep it clean

Yes, that was Mike Hargrove without the (hideous) goatee tonight in the Mariners' 5-1 victory over the hapless Devil Rays. Quoth the Skip:
"I screwed up this morning," Hargrove said before the game. "I was trying to trim it and took a huge gash right out of it."
Good riddance.

Other good news includes the return of Richie Sexson's bat, the return of a lively Sean Green, and the return of Julio Mateo. What? No. That's not good news. That's terrible, horrible, no good, very bad news.

The M's bullpen without Mateo is one of the best in the league. We don't need his bad vibrations.

Let's trade Mateo and Elijah Dukes to one of the circles of hell.

Yeah, but who would we get in exchange? Roger Clemens?
