Vodcast on today’s luncheon

It’s the interactive era here in blog-land, so I’ve created this vodcast for those of you who’d like a verbal summation of what went on at today’s Mariners spring training luncheon. Look forward to more of these to come as spring training and the season unfolds. Or maybe you won’t look forward to it. Anyway, it’s your choice to click or not to click. Feel free to keep the discussion going in the previous post.

(UPDATE — 10:52 p.m.) — For Adam in the comments thread, yes, I was paraphrasing what Bavasi said. What he actually said was that you either plan to use your (major league ready) prospects on the field, or you deal them. You can’t let them “rot on the vine” of player development. Obviously, not all Seattle prospects are going to play here. There isn’t room. He wants to take a shot at winning this year and feels his chances are better with a top starter rather than playing some of the young guys he’d be trading. I was trying to sum up all of his thoughts in one snappy line. If it didn’t come out clearly, that’s my fault and not Bavasi’s. He never said Adam Jones, or Jeff Clement, had to help carry the team to a World Series this year in order to stay in Seattle.
