The Mariners are having a team meeting

May 11, 2010, 4:13 PM EDT

Mariners logo.gifGeoff Baker of the Seattle Times just tweeted that the Mariners’ clubhouse is closed for a team meeting.  Let’s try to guess the meeting agenda:

1. Call to order; introductory remarks; coffee, donuts, Red Bull, Mountain Dew, assorted energy drinks to be served.

2. Guest speaker, Dr. Phillip P. Scheaf, Sleep Apnea Expert

3. Guest speaker, Julia R. Wilkinson, Psy.D. topic: “Keeping the dirty laundry in the laundry room: 12 tips to successful team building”

4. Breakout sessions (see Rick Adair for dry erase markers; note cards)

5. Ken Griffey Jr. to address team (no questions to follow)

6. Milton Bradley presentation. Topic: “You people have a lot of nerve calling me dysfunctional.”

7. Closing remarks, adjournment. 

  1. Ken Griffey Jr. - May 11, 2010 at 4:18 PM

    Craig, it’s wonderful to have such a studied parliamentarian at the helm.

    Tom hanks to discuss how to stay awake in Seattle

    I never thought that the guy who scared the Minnesota Twins and their 12 year old manager (Little Big League anyone?!) would end up being just as much as a joke as that movie.
    Timothy Busfield, (Matt Murton?) what were you thinking?!!

    Ken Griffey Jr = next spokesman for Seattle-based Starbucks.

    Well, if there’s someone who’s going to get to the bottom of this whole was-Griffey-sleeping mess, it’s Geoff Baker.
    My guess: Ichiro is somehow responsible; an unnamed source threatens to “choke him out.” In other completely unrelated news, Carlos Silva visits his old teammates.
    In all seriousness, Baker is oblivious that his “clubhouse chemistry makes a winning team” agenda has been shown up as a sham, because there’s new muck to be raked.

    I think we should circle back and whiteboard this.

    The Milton Bradley presentation line just cracked me up. Brilliant line there.
