Our new Henry Cotto insider had this to say:
"El Marko said...
Well, I just spoke to Henry and I have good news and bad news.
The good news is: I told him about this site and he laughed heartily and asked for the link.
The bad news is: he is no longer a Seattle Mariner. He just signed on to be a roving instructor with the Giants. Actually that makes us in Connecticut very happy as it means he will be visiting Norwich, Ct in the Eastern League.
Anyway, I hope you don't change the site name because of this...he still spent the bulk of his playing days in Seattle."
(Of course, El Marko could just be playing a practical joke on all of us here at HCM, it wouldn't be the first time our dedicated news staff had been fooled. I however, choose to believe El Marko... call it blind faith, call it "Hey this dude has a website and everything!", call it what you will. I buy it!)
This is certainly dissapointing news that Mr. Cotto has once again left our beloved Seattle Mariner organization. However, it does nothing to tarnish our respect for the man, the player, and the mustache.
We wish Henry the best of luck with his new position and can only hope that he returns to the organization in a few short weeks as the Manager.
I THINK THE AUDIENCE WOULD AGREE WITH ME THERE!!!!
