It's Official! The Mariners Suck!

Our family used to go to the old King Dome and watch the Mariners get beat. Tickets were cheap and expectations were low. Seattle was well on its way to being the Chicago Cubs of the West coast. Then came '95 and we had a taste of success. Underdog success, the most addictive sort. That was then, this is now.

With some real talent and a player payroll that is ninth in the majors the Ms have the worst record of all thirty clubs. Watching the games is as bad as the days when the bullpen could be counted on to blow any lead, no matter how large. I can now relate to the hapless Mets of old.

This wouldn't be so bad if I didn't like baseball so much. There's still college football, but that's months away.
