Finally! After weeks of rumors we can finally put all of this “where will Ryan Langerhans go?” speculation to bed!

Oh, wait there wasn’t any.  But it is the “trade deadline,” not just the “Hunter Pence Trade Deadline” so you should know that Ryan Langerhans has been traded by the Mariners to the Diamondbacks for cash. That’s a trade, basically, so it’s worthy of reporting.

Langerhans, who many thought was killed in an industrial accident several years ago, is hitting a robust .173/.317/.346 in 64 plate appearances for the Mariners.  For approximately a week in 2005 some people thought he’d be something special. He is somehow 31-years-old already.

That’s all I got. Really.  This has been a pretty draining week.

    You’re tired of typing Hunter Pence’s name, yet you mention it in a post having nothing to do with him.

      Battle fatigue.

    Ugh, I’m SO exhausted from typing Langerhans all week — is it Saturday yet?

    Moving from Seattle to Arizona will improve Langerhans’ Hall of Fame chances.

    I remebered a kind of a funny story about Langerhans, so I looked it up. Jack Z (Mariners gm) was hosting an online chat with fans a few years ago, and a chatter mentioned Langerhans would be an upgrade, and showed his platoon stats etc. A few days later, Langerhans was acquired. I have only posted here a few months, and dont know the rules about posting links to other forums. Hopefully, this is innocent enough: google “did mariners get trade idea from fans”
