George Sherrill and Bucky Jacobsen joining the club

Wow, this is a really sound move. While one could reasonably ask what took so long with Sherrill, the fact is they made the right call. The present M's bullpen stinks, and Sherrill deserves to get the opportunity to help fix it.

Jacobsen fits in that he supplies the M's with what they don't have- power. Whether that power can be flexed at the MLB level remains to be seen, but he deserves the shot.

Now who will be dropped from the roster? I'm guessing Meche or Myers. Of course Olerud plays first, and Martinez is the DH. Where will Jacobsen play ie. who will he steal bats from?

Should know shortly.
