Lucas French grew up a Mariners fan

7

...according to Jim Street. I know these stories are written to endear fans to the new guys (Ian Snell has family in Portland!), but it's working on me. Key quotes: "When the Tigers told me I'd been traded to Seattle, my first thought was, 'Awesome!'" he said. ... "When I was in the fifth grade," the Colorado native said, "I made a time line about where you want to be in the future and it was on my time line that I wanted to play for the Mariners. So this is pretty cool. The Mariners were my favorite team." ... French received an autographed jersey from Griffey last month when the Mariners played the Tigers in Detroit, and on Saturday received a typical Griffey "welcome" to the Mariners. "Mike Sweeney and I were talking when he walked up and stood there near us," Griffey said. "We knew he wanted to introduce himself, so when we were done talking, both of us turned and started to walk away. "Luke had his hand out and he just stared. Then I turned around and said, 'I'm just messin' with you."
