Mariners sign Ramon Vazquez

Jenifer Langosch/

Ramon Vazquez, who the Pirates designated for assignment the day before Opening Day and released soon after, has been signed to a Minor League deal with Seattle. According to a Mariners press release, Vazquez will return to extended Spring Training before joining one of the organization’s Minor League teams, likely Triple-A Tacoma (Wash.).

Right now, the Pirates remain responsible for all of Vazquez’s $2 million salary for 2010. If he does move up to the Majors this year, the Mariners will pay him the Major League minimum and the figure will be subtracted from the Pirates’ debt.

Very important question – as a lifelong Pirates fan I have yet to make to voyage to PNC park. I’m finally taking my wife there this summer. Where are the best places to watch the game/maybe have a view of a river? Any hotels to recommend within walking distance?
