Kelly Shoppach Is Close To Deal With Mariners

Shoppach Confronts Ochoa Last August
Kelly Shoppach (considered one of the chief malcontents on the 2012 Red Sox) has reportedly agreed to a major-league contract with the Seattle Mariners. Shoppach had previously played for current Seattle Manager Eric Wedge when they were both in The Mistake By The Lake. Multiple sources identified Shoppach as a key troublemaker on the dysfunctional 2012 edition of the Carmine Hose—famously confronting Alex Ochoa in the dugout after a sunflower-throwing incident in Chicago.
