Extremely minor deal theater: Seattle Mariners

Dec 28, 2009, 2:44 PM EST

I’d like to think that the Mariners saw what the Nationals did earlier today, decided that they would NOT be outdone in the almost negligible transaction department and rushed to sign Josh Bard and Chad Cordero.

Maybe this isn’t quite as minor as Washington’s deal: you actually start your backup catcher once in a while, so Bard should come in mildly handy. He’s a switch hitter. He might luck into the occasional home run. 

Cordero was once an All-Star closer who lost half of 2008 and all of 2009 with shoulder surgery.

    Good luck to Josh and Chad they are both class acts.

    Bard also has a 20% career percentage throwing runners out. NO THANKS!
