One of things that you want to avoid when doing this blog is becoming a propaganda outlet for the M's, but at the same time, you do have to post a few things here and there when you think they are relevant or necessary.
This is one of those times. In these economic times, lots of people are looking for work or supplemental earnings and the Mariners do have some opportunities for summer employment. Will you make as much in one summer as Erik Bedard gets paid to pitch in one game for the Mariners? Not even close. But if you are looking feel free to check the information below.
