All right, I can't hold out anymore. Mariners!


Your Opening Day lineups:



And, in case you need me to whet your appetite for Mariner baseball, I will take this opportunity to present to you the Top 10 Biggest Mariner Hits of 2009.

10) 8/12: Ken Griffey Jr.'s pinch-hit RBI single in the bottom of the 14th gives the Mariners a 1-0 win over the White Sox. +39.5%

9) 5/17: Franklin Gutierrez hits a walk-off single in the bottom of the 9th off Ramon Ramirez to give the M's a 3-2 win over the Red Sox. +39.5%

8) 6/19: Ken Griffey Jr. ties it up in the 8th with a pinch-hit two-run blast off of Tony Pena. +40.9%

7) 5/3: Ichiro singles in the third run of the 13th inning to keep things alive against Oakland. +44.3%

6) 5/3: Prior to Ichiro's heroics, Kenji Johjima hit a solo shot in the bottom of the 9th to pull the M's into a tie. +47.3%

5) 9/17: Bill Hall hits the second of two home runs in the 9th inning off Bobby Jenks, this one a solo shot to tie things up. +49.0%

4) 7/22: With Felix throwing a gem against the Tigers, Russell Branyan turns an 8th inning 1-0 deficit into a 2-1 lead with one swing of the bat. +50.4%

3) 7/9: Franklin Gutierrez. Texas Rangers. Three-run shot. You know the one. +67.2%

2) 8/7: In the most improbable of scenarios, Ryan Langerhans belts a two out, two strike curve from lefty JP Howell to turn a rough M's loss into a walk-off win. +86.7%

1) 9/18: Just a little Ichiro/Rivera action. No biggie. Watch this video, and watch it again, and watch it as many times as possible before the start of Game 1. Baseball's back, and the Mariners have the best team they've had in years and years. +86.7%
