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.

Coming Clean

Okay, I admit that as of late April of this year, I had written the Mariners off.  They looked bad.  And then something funny happened - they started winning.  I guess that is what is so cool about baseball - as soon as you think you have it figured out, here comes the slow curve.  Whatever happens for the remainder of this season, I just want to thank the Seattle Mariners for making it an interesting summer - and for playing meaningful games in September.  Go M's!!

Panic

Larry Stone says it's not time to panic yet.  I say why panic?  There's no need to panic about a bad baseball team playing badly - it's just the way it is.  Looks like another long summer ahead.  I remember a time when I dreaded the club making a road trip to Arlington in August or September.  Apparently April isn't too early.
