Free agent Carl Everett, who didn't sign with another team after being cut by the Mariners in July, would like to play next season.
Everett's behavior was worth putting up with when he was a quality regular. Now that he's a 35-year-old fringe player, he's going to have a harder time than most finding work. Still, it's likely that he'll be offered minor league contracts by a few teams. Sun, Dec 31, 2006 01:02:00 PM

Carl Everett cleared waivers Monday, making him a free agent.

Everett, who was designated for assignment by the Mariners last month, may struggle to find more than a Triple-A job given his sub par hitting and personality.

Mariners designated outfielder Carl Everett for assignment.

The decision to guarantee Everett $4 million in the offseason was an extremely bad one, but he still didn't figure to play quite so poorly. He hit .227/.297/.360 with just 33 RBI in 308 at-bats for the Mariners. Releasing him before his 2007 option could vest was a very good idea. The Mariners called up Chris Snelling to replace him for now, and it's believed that they're interested in acquiring Todd Walker to take over as their left-handed designated hitter.

Carl Everett was ejected from Wednesday's game in the eighth inning for arguing a play at first base.

Everett was obviously out, but he was due for another fit. The Mariners should cut their losses and released Everett. Roberto Petagine would provide superior production as a DH against right-handers, as would Chris Snelling, if only he could be counted on to stay healthy. Plus, Erubiel Durazo is out there waiting to be snatched up.

Carl Everett and manager Mike Hargrove reportedly had a post-game shouting match Tuesday.

Everett is apparently unhappy about decreased playing time, while Hargrove is surely unhappy about Everett's lack of offense. The whole "Crazy Carl" act probably wears a little thin when he's a below-average player.

Carl Everett went 0-for-3 on Friday and finished the month of June 11-for-63 with four RBI.

The Mariners are going to be cutting the wrong player when they get rid of Roberto Petagine to make room for Eduardo Perez. Everett was an obvious waste of money in the offseason, and he's even fallen short of our expectations by hitting .238/.314/.378 with 28 RBI in 76 games.

Manager Mike Hargrove said Wednesday that Carl Everett "will be the odd man out" when the Mariners begin playing in NL parks.

Seattle used to get Edgar Martinez into the lineup somewhere during interleague play, but Carl Everett's bat is hardly worth the trouble.

Carl Everett delivered a walkoff homer against Jesse Crain in the 11th inning Wednesday to give the Mariners a 10-9 win over the Twins.

The home run was his first extra-base hit in 14 games. Over the last month, he has nine RBI and no doubles. The Mariners have started sitting Everett against lefties, which will help his rate stats. The homer tonight makes it even less likely that he'll lose starts to Roberto Petagine against righties, but the Mariners would have been better off with Petagine in the DH role right from the start of the year.

Carl Everett, who didn't start Sunday due to tired legs, was back DHing on Monday and went 0-for-4.

The Mariners could muster only four hits off the lethal combination of John Rheinecker and Rick Bauer while being shut out for a major league-high seventh time this season. Everett is now hitting .173 against left-handers this season, though that won't stop Mike Hargrove from batting him fifth day in and day out. After the Royals, the Mariners are the AL team most in need of a management overhaul.

Mariners manager Mike Hargrove said he rested Carl Everett against Johan Santana on Sunday because "his legs were a little weary."

Unfortunately, it probably had nothing to do with Everett's lousy .184/.273/.327 line against left-handers. Everett is a switch-hitter, but he no longer hits southpaws well enough to justify regular playing time. Unfortunately, the primary alternative in the DH spot, Roberto Petagine, is a left-handed hitter, making it highly unlikely that Everett will be dropped into a platoon role anytime soon.

Carl Everett went 3-for-5 with a homer and two RBI as the Mariners defeated the Padres 10-8 on Sunday.

The Mariners scored eight runs in the second inning, their highest scoring inning since August of 2003. Everyone in the lineup today reached base at least once except Jose Lopez. Ichiro Suzuki added three hits in the contest while Raul Ibanez added a three-run homer.

Carl Everett went 2-for-3 with his fifth homer and walked Tuesday against the Devil Rays.

Everett has been solid enough since a slow first two weeks that any danger of him losing at-bats to Roberto Petagine seems to have disappeared. Of course, we still believe Petagine would outproduce him against right-handers.
Wed, May 10, 2006 12:53:00 AM

Carl Everett went 0-for-4 with two strikeouts and grounded into a double play on Tuesday night. He's batting .115.

Even worse, the double play came on the first pitch of an at-bat that immediately followed two walks and a HBP. It's past time that Roberto Petagine received his first start at DH. Petagine has homered, walked and doubled in his three plate appearances this season. The double, which came tonight, only missed being a homer by a couple of feet.

Carl Everett hit a two-run homer and walked twice in Thursday night's win over the Athletics.

And we were hoping Roberto Petagine would make his first start this weekend. Everett is 3-for-14 with four walks after four games.

A few days after Carl Everett said the White Sox will miss his leadership this season, manager Ozzie Guillen responded.

"When you're a leader, you don't whine about being dropped from third in the order to sixth," Guillen said. "I don't need leaders. I'm the leader of the team. I want players that lead by example. I don't want to say Carl was just being Carl. I don't think he was telling the truth that we lost leaders.''
