A Brief Word Of Caution Regarding Bucky Jacobsen and Justin Leone 

Before we get too caught up with Bucky and Leone fever, I'd like to point out one potential danger of their early success.  For the casual Mariner fans (which includes the local sports media not named Larry Stone), Jacobsen's and Leone's hot starts are likely to create inflated perceptions of their actual abilities, thus making them overrated as players well after they predictably cool off.  Hopefully M's GM Bill "Goat Boy" Bavasi (or better yet, his upcoming replacement) will recognize this and not over-pay for two rookies older than me.
