Seattle Mariners sign Johjima

AP reports the Mariners have signed catcher Kenji Johjima to a 3 year deal worth 16.5 million. We await word on details about this addition. The Show with Dibble & Kennedy has some interesting re-plays today, including Dale Murphy, Tommy Lasorda, Tony Gwynn, and George Genovese. Genovese, once in the Brooklyn Dodger minor league system, played in the majors for the Washington Senators. He eventually became successful as a long-time scout, worked for the San Francisco Giants, & is currently with the Dodgers. Genovese tells about fighting his boss to get teen-ager Bobby Bonds signed. At the time, Bobby's wife was pregnant with Barry Bonds.
