SEATTLE (AP) -- Three-time All-Star second baseman Bret Boone (http://sports.yahoo.com/mlb/players/4917/) was cut by the Seattle Mariners (http://sports.yahoo.com/mlb/teams/sea/) on Sunday after a half-season of struggles at the plate.

The 12-year veteran, who has 251 homers, was designated for assignment. Seattle has 10 days to trade him or put him on waivers.

I was never a fan of this guy, mainly because of his annoying bat flip after a HR. He came out of nowhere for the Mariners and once the steroid testing came up, his power numbers disappeared.

I'm not surprised. There will be more to follow soon. Take a look at Sosa with the O's.

Nice call. When looking at Boone's numbers, it's the 2001 season that really goes Boing! Talk about pop goes the weasel.

That reference by Canseco really did him in, I'd be interested to see if another team actually gives it a roll

My LVP of 2004 might be of use to them. if the twins get him i would not be happy. while he is old and not too good anymore, i have abad feeling if he was to join the twins, he would kick arse

I've never liked the guy since he had what seemed like his one and only decent year, which by the largest of coincidences was his salary drive going-to-FA year. Then, he turned down Seattle's offer, which seemed more than fair at the time. What goes around, comes around, tool.

He was a pretty solid second baseman for a long time until that big year, then suddenly he's "one of the best in the league" and since then he's done squat. Now he's DFA and the Mariners begin another rebuilding.
