Hargrove thinks the hot seat is big enough for everyone


After being outside for a while, I have to write something about baseball. Anything. The weather is too nice not to at least think about it.

And I’m sure the weather is even better in Arizona, and a lot warmer.

Just ask Mike Hargrove.

The M’s veteran manager was chatting with the media Thursday when a TV reporter asked him about Howard Lincoln’s letter to season-ticket holders over the offseason. The one that included Hargrove’s name linked to the “hot-seat.”

Though Grover got mad, he seemed to actually handle the question well, as this Larry LaRue notebook shows. But his response was the topic du jour of the M’s camp, with the Times mentioning it as well as the P-I in this notebook.

The pitchers and catchers are working out, with this story of long shot in the Times (check out the photo; it’s priceless) and the P-I’s piece on the “improved” Jarrod Washburn (it is spring after all). Speaking of improved, left-handed addition Horacio Ramirez hopes the injury bug won’t bite him again this season. And, finally, former White Sox sensation Jim Parque says he’s just happy to be in camp.
