Jim Parque, who last pitched with the Devil Rays in 2003, is signing with the Seattle Mariners as we speak, according to folks I know. Its going to be a minor league contract, which is basically no lose for either side.

It seems like he had a pretty good career going until he fell down the stairs in 2001. Wouldn’t be a bad signing for the Ms, except makes it less likely that my man Jorge Campillo is going to get a roster spot.
