Good for you Henry Blanco

After the Blue Jays designated 41-year-old catcher Henry Blanco, Blanco had the choice of playing in triple-A or being released.  He chose to be released, become a free agent, and was picked up by the Mariners.

In his first game for the Mariners yesterday, he made a great dive to tag a runner out at the plate and also hit a grand slam.  Not a bad debut.

While the Jays shouldn’t miss Blanco (and probably should have never signed him by the looks of things), I’m happy to see him get a shot with an MLB club.

You gotta love good ol’ Hank White.
