There are no two ways about it - it was tough being a Mariner fan over this last weekend. After a promising opening series win against the Angels, the A's came to town and had their way with the hometown nine (pretty much). Although there are lots of good things about this team, there are some pretty significant bad ones as well. And with a road trip to Cleveland and Boston coming up, I'm not feeling particularly good about the team at this juncture.
So what happened to Adrian Beltre - he of the 4 home runs during the WBC? Carl Everett has not resembled a "left hand sock". Pitching has been a real mixed bag (well I guess we were expecting that anyway). So I liked the team a lot better when they were 3-1 rather than now when they are 3-4. Let's see what happens on the road.
Edit: Here's an interesting piece from the P.I. today that discusses the hitting woes of a certain third baseman that may be of interest.
