This is an understandable move by Seattle, but it’s sad to see it happen to a fine gentleman like John Olerud.

But the other fun part of the story is that one of Matthew Namee’s favorite minor leaguers, Bucky Jacobsen, has been recalled to take Olerud’s place on the roster. Here’s hoping the M’s give him the playing time he deserves.
