Yes, the Seattle Mariners allowed seven first-inning runs and lost the Chicago Cubs today, 12-7, and yes, threy released left-hander Hong-Chih Kuo to get their roster to 39 players in camp.
Without much good news in camp, we present 6 1/2 minutes with Kirby Arnold, who spent the last 13 springs bringing Everett Herald readers great coverage of a game he loved.
With a gentle style and sense of humor and fairness, Kirby was a natural storyteller, a great friend and a man who is missed this spring by readers, writers and players. Retirement may serve him well, but it leaves the rest of us in the lurch. Enjoy the visit.
