I Think It Just Did

Larry Stone summarizes the current sad state of Mariner affairs over at The Times today.

The answer to the question "How are you feeling about the Mariners so far?". 

I was pretty optimistic before the regular season started.  And although we are only 25 games in, I am really starting to feel the old sense of apathy coming back.  I suppose getting swept by the Astros will do that.  I know it's still early and there is a lot of baseball left to play, but I'm at the point now where the team has to put up or shut up, you know?

Here We Go!

Baseball starts again in 2 more days - the Annual Charity Game with the Padres means that the 2015 campaign officially begins.  Spring Training is always a time that can be described as being full of optimism - everybody is on equal footing and the possibilities are endless.  Quite frankly, this is the first year in many years that I have felt optimistic about the M's.  2 more days - then it begins.

M's Season Over

Tough way for the season to end.  But on the bright side, the club went 87-75 and came within 1 game of making the playoffs.  Now we have to hope that they address the lack of offense over the Winter.
