Mariners to Draft Long-dead Jazz Guitarist?

Probably it's the unrepentant jazz geek in me, but I'm very happy to hear that the Mariners, who have the second pick in next year's draft, might consider taking USC shortstop Grant Green.

He's a genuine prospect, and will probably make an impact at the Major League level, provided he can keep off the H. As long as he's clean, he'll deliver clean running lines, bluesy solos and boppish runs. If he strays onto the horse's back, though, he'll go silent for a few years, then come back with some weak-ass pop-funk shit.

I hope the Mariners know what they're doing.
