Point of view is a funny thing. Doesn't seem that long ago that it seemed like the sky was the limit for the 2010 Seatlle Mariners. Jack had just completed deals for Figgins and Lee, Junior was back for a final tour with the club, etc. But then the reality of the season began to unfold. Pretty soon that old familiar sinking feeling (can you say 2008?) began to pervade my baseball watching experience. It's all in the point of view.
I will say one thing about the game last night. Although the M's were unable to seal the deal, the bottom of the 9th was one of the most enjoyable half innings of baseball that I can remember. Never mind the inability to score that run in the bottom of the 12th - the bottom of the 9th was awesome. And I guess that it all comes down to one's point of view.
