FanPost

A (potential) new community member

I have been reading Lookout Landing for a little while now, say two years now. The site has been good to me, but I will admit when I first started, I only read this site maybe once a week. But, as time went on, so did my love for this site. It has been a guilty pleasure the last six months, as I find myself checking for updates before work, after work, during breaks, at school between classes, and everywhere in between. It went from a small niche to something I found myself looking at at least 5 times a day hoping for something new. ( I should warn you, this FanPost has no rumors, or any insightful crunching of data)

I wanted to create a profile and become a part of the community for a while now, but even after this FanPost, I do not expect much in the way of comments from myself and defiantly not in the way of another FanPost. College, work, and this girl ,that I might or might not like, take up a bit of my time. Add in the fact I lack the ability to watch the games, and it creates my inability to offer insightful or meaningful content. (I feel I would have trouble created meaningful content if I had time anyways) I decided, with me being on here as much as I am, I should actually start being a part of the community.
I would like to commend Jeff and Matthew for making this blog amazing, which is why I am pausing and rethinking my ideas more than I normally do on my college essays (a good thing!). I find myself not wanting to be a pain, a troll, or an idiot, which some others have succeeded in being all three! I see how other SB nation blogs can be (Halo Heaven comes to mind, and more recently, whatever blog Al Yellon runs) and it makes me happy that my hometown team has the best blog I can find.

A few things I should clear up about myself as a Mariner fan, I am excited for the new season, as football is winding down, and my favorite NBA player (Brandon Roy) has been forced to an early retirement. I believe GMZ is doing what it takes to build a winner. I agree with almost everyone else on this site that Felix is ours and you can't have him. My favorite current Mariner is Ackley. I understand basic ideas like ISO power, Fielding independent fielding, babip and sss, and how things like wins, BA and ERA can be unpredictable. Besides that, just a basic 21 year old baseball fan who enjoys the site. I wanted to keep this short and sweet, so I will rap this up here and hopefully I can be a solid community member from the get go.
