If you're one of those people who wrote off the season a few weeks ago, you're missing out on an awful lot of fun right now, as the Mariners have won six of seven and are presently coming off of what might've been the most exciting game of the year. Sometimes it pays to forget about the team's long-term outlook for a little while and concentrate on the game taking place, because you never know when it might lift your spirits.

Wildest contest in a while. Unfortunately, due to the fact that (A) I missed the first seven innings, and (B) it went an hour longer than expected, I can't really write the kind of recap that I'd like to, since I have to get up for work in the morning and everything. So you know what that means - another edition of You Write The Recap! If the game thread's any indication, you guys have a lot to say, so let's hear it. I'll even get the ball rolling with a Submit Your Own Caption contest:

What's the deal? Are you just enjoying the moment (since walk-off wins are crazyawesome), or are you buying the Mariners as a different team than the one they were two weeks ago?
Day game tomorrow, Santana/Pineiro at 1:35pm PDT.
