Mariners Reporter John Hickey Was All Over The Trade Deadline

It wasn’t the most active trade deadline ever for the Seattle Mariners, but all wasn’t completely quiet on the western front. The Mariners picked up some prospects in dealing away Erik Bedard, and in far more important news, they signed Wily Mo Pena to a minor league contract. Pena is hitting .667/.800/1.667 with the Tacoma Raniers so far. But I digress.

Naturally this coverage can be difficult on those in the media, but John Hickey of was all over it, not only on the site but at his twitter account too:

All too often, we see analysis constrained by what people have done in the past; too simplistic, too bland, too dry. Not here. I think we can all applaud Mr. Hickey’s excellent outside-the-box coverage.

    I think that’s him giving a big ‘ol raspberry at everyone who thought they wouldn’t do anything at the deadline. Or maybe the big guy just sat on his phone on the train.
