Oh, Those Fishermen...

They may not exactly know how to play baseball (although last weekend's series showed we don't know how to play baseball-but we already knew that), but those pesky Mariners sure do have a funny bone...

From Roch's Sun Blog

Meanwhile, did you hear about the prank the Mariners pulled on former Orioles manager Mike Hargrove before Monday's game?

Because of the nationwide immigration boycott, most of the Hispanic players walked into Hargrove's office at the Metrodome and said they woudn't be able to play.

According to the Seattle Times, reliever Eddie Guardado, whose father is a Mexican immigrant who participated in the boycott in Stockton Cal., did most of the talking, and eventually gave away the joke because he no longer could hold back the laughter.

"(Hargrove) bought it," third baseman Adrian Beltre told reporters. "He said three times, 'Are you serious?'"

"He was getting red," Guardado added, "like he was ready to pop a fuse."

That would have been more dangerous if Hargrove hadn't lost about 40 pounds over the winter. His wife, Sharon, put him on a strict diet - nothing white, including rice, potatos and sugar - and hired a personal trainer.

That's quality.  One of the more quality pranks I've heard about in a while.  Except for that one where the O's said they DFA'd Brower, when in actuality, they just refaced him into John Halamalama-ding-dong
