Frustrating, yes. But I still love 'em.


Ever since I was four months old I have been attending Mariners games. In fact I have yet to miss a Mariners home opener in my life, my hope is to continue that streak for as long as I can. No matter how bad the team is, no matter how inept they are, I will always love my Mariners. I love sitting at SafeCo Field and hanging out with my friends and family. I love watching baseball period. The history of this club will always stay with me The Double, the All-Star Game, the 116 wins and the magician known as Ichiro with his 10 straight 200+ hit seasons. All are reasons to look at the past with nostalgia, and the front office knows it.

The front office loves to bring up history, they make bobble heads and money off of that. Money that the fans would like to see be spent on a big bat. Instead we get Jack Wilson and Chone Figgins, defensive wizards to be sure, home run threats I think not.  I grow frustrated with front office's bungling, it has been present long before Jack Z arrived, and wish for a front office that drafts as well as finds the free agent that won't tank upon his arrival in Seattle. Is that too much too hope for?

As for this years home opener? I'll be there, how about you?
