Please pardon my attitude, but I'm pretty irritated with our Mariners now. We were just swept by the formerly hapless A's. We're becoming firmly entrenched in the cellar of the American League West, and nobody seems too bothered by that fact. I'm having a very difficult time watching games lately.

Now for the good news...

The Mariners are headed home for a short homestand against the dreaded Texas Rangers. Who among us seriously thinks we will win one out of three? Any bets on the series? I didn't think so...
Tomorrow night (Friday) is 1995 Retro Cap Night! Woohoo! Please refer to previous post below. They probably have a warehouse full of these ugly and dated teal babies, and management was wondering how they might possibly get rid of them. After all, the Salvation Army turned up their noses already. Those leftover caps and that leftover baseball should really put the asses in the seats over the weekend!

Long time, few posts... Sorry, we have all been busy!

I would like to comment on the 10-year anniversary of the 1995 season. Baseball, more than other sports, loves to revel in its history. I do, too. I love that aspect of the game! 1995 was a remarkable time to be a baseball fan in Seattle. It was a wondrous rebirth of sorts. Many new fans discovered how cool a pennant race could be! What I object to is the Mariners using 1995 as a sales pitch to try to distract us from how awful this year's team has played so far!

On the flip side of this, and a view you won't hear from the front office, is this:
Get over it, and let's seriously try to get in another pennant race real soon! It won't be this year, obviously, but every fan wants to believe their team is honestly doing everthing in their power to improve. Please show me this is the top priority. Baseball also has the aspect that says, "What have you done for me lately?"
