Carl Everett has been designated for assignment and Chris Snelling has been called up to take his roster spot.
I've only two things to say about this:
1. WOO! HOO!
2. What the hell took so long?
UPDATE: The Mariners have traded Shin-Soo Choo to the Indians for DH/1B Ben Broussard. This likely means that Snelling goes back down to Tacoma (bad) unless it means they've got a trade in the works for Richie Sexson (good) or they decide to play Ichiro! in Centerfield (good) or put Snelling in Center (bad).
All this activity is so exciting that USSMariner has crashed on a Wednesday afternoon. We're currently getting text-editor updates only from the site (hilarious).
