The Round Mound Who Rebounded

Lookout Landing has a retrospective of Jose Vidro's surprising season. Most Mariners fans were readying the pitchforks and torches when Bowden unloaded the roly-poly DH for a fat reliever and a gimpy outfielder.

Neither of the acquisitions are still with the team, but getting anything of value for Vidro was viewed as a success by most Nats fans because getting out from under his contract was the big thing.

Well, a funny thing happened on the way to mediocrity: Vidro hit a lot of singles. A Lot. And he had a decent year. But Mariners fans still aren't completely happy, and you'll have to read that to find out why.

But truthfully, I'm linking it because I love this image.
