Morrow Time! (Or...Bye Bye Vidro)

Great to see the M's finally making the move to transition Brandon Morrow BACK into a starting pitcher. Rather than bother with a "what took you so long" rant, the big question mark over this move is why Tacoma? Morrow, even if he only throws 35 pitches, is the Mariner's 2nd best starting pitcher right now. Why not have those innings count? Hopefully the Mariners will get him back up here sooner than later. Makes more sense to have Morrow progress in the bigs and Batista or Silva come in to mop up than watch him waste his talent in AAA.

The Vidro move was long overdue. Although it was entertaining wondering why he was on the team every time he stepped up to the plate.
