What are the Mariners doing?

And I thought the Royals were the only idiots to overpay for pitching...silly me. The M's are going to sign that great pitcher Miguel Batista. The amount will be a 3 year contract for 27 mil! Yes, for a pitcher not any better that Meche, they are paying 9 mil a year! He has a 4.46 lifetime ERA.

Wow, 9 mil a year for a career record of 68-79. What did Meche have? He has career marks of 55-44 with a 4.65 ERA. I don't see how this helped us one bit.

****UPDATE*****
I told you so. (about half way down)
