Mariners Try to Steal Our Money

Mariners 2013 commercials have been released! I know it's a rather somber time here at Lookout Landing, but at least we have some light to moderate entertainment provided to us by the Mariners. Sure it's a ploy to get us to buy tickets. Jokes on them! I live in Los Angeles! Any tickets I buy will directly benefit the Angels or Dodgers. I need to rethink my plan.

But hey, M's commercials are back and while not "better than ever," Justin Smoak is no longer punching soft wooded trees down to make bats. And now we know who to blame for Raul Ibanez.

One Wish is not great and I'm not convinced the M's marketing department knows how to use Dustin Ackley. But over all I think they are better than the 2012 commercials, barely.

"True to the Blue" is awful.

I enjoyed watching Padres do spit takes in The Hottest Thing in Town. The Mariners always use opposing teams well in their commercials and this was no exception. It does remind me of the commercial a few years ago that featured Felix sending flowers to his strikeout victims. Felix has a fun character arc, he used to feel sorry for his victims, now he just punishes them further.

I think I laughed most on the final line of The Lineup, I'm not sure what that says about me.

Enjoy the 2013 Mariners Commercials! Also maybe the 2013 Mariners!
