    Yankees too. Yankees would be tough but man that'd be fun. Our pitching against their hitting.

    Tickets in the center field bleachers for tonight's game, but will probably just walk around the stadium since we have excellent 1st baseline tickets for tomorrow night. Bummer that JRod is still injured.

    gotta get Haniger and JRod back. Have not seen this team at full strength! Should sweep the angels.

    Come back from 3-0 in the 9th to fucking lose in the next inning.

    Why did I choose to love this team?

    Because there is no team in portland and geographically they are the closest so they are viewed as the home team.

    lol. I was actually a Cubs fan until I went to my first Mariner game (The day after Griffey broke his wrist, fml). Because my world by then was WGN or TBS and I chose the cubs. lol. If I had stayed a Cubs fan i'd of at least celebrated a World Series lmao. But nah, I'm here for the long haul. It's Seattle or bust for me in baseball.

    I was given the Mariner's as my team at birth. All my brothers got one. My two older bros are Cubs and Red Sox fans. It's my turn to win a World series!!!

    Julio, France and this pitching staff is our best chance in decades. Really, since Griffey/Edgar.

    I don't disagree.. I've just been let down so many times.

    Semi related, our car window got smashed in overnight downtown. The M's are really the only thing I like here, at the moment. Fuck Seattle!

    Mariners to win 3 World Series in your lifetime

    Or

    Blazers to win 1 (or 1 more) championship in your lifetime?

    Oh me too and I expect it to fail spectacularly. I won't believe until we win one (1) playoff GAME. lol.

    Sorry to hear about the broken window. Fuck that man I don't get why people do that.

    To be fair hitting .300 in this era is rare. .275 is the new .300 lol.
