Big Changes?

Aren't we past the point when those big changes were supposed to happen? All the Mariners have done is swap Nagoette for Meche and Bocachica for McCracken. While it's nice to see Q gone, it just highlights how foolish it was to pick him up in the first place. Bocachica is a replacement level player with a cool name, nothing more. So is McCracken too, but we're gonna pay him $2 million to do it somewhere else. Now the M's have their choice of do-everything-but hit utility guys with Bocachia and Bloomquist on the bench. Wouldn't it make a lot more sense to call up Leone and put him in the third and shortstop mix? As for the pitchers: I don't think Nagoette is ready, and if anything he's even wilder than Meche. I'll leave it to people much smarter than me how it is Meche ended up with a option left.
