I went to the Rainiers game last night and even though it turned into a 2010-vintage Mariners game (is it me? Do I just bring this upon teams I follow this year?) it was the most interesting I have found a game in months. Michael Pineda, Dustin Ackley, Justin Smoak, Greg Halman, Mike Wilson, Matt Mangini, Shawn Kelley and, well that's probably it. Still, it was a group of people that represent a significant amount of immediate future potential for the big league team and it was a group of people that by and large I had not yet seen suck and disappoint me. It was a nice refresher.

Also, Cheney Stadium is less offensive than Safeco's constant in-your-face family friendliness.

The result being that I didn't get back home until late last night and now I'm staring that Mariners in the face again and frankly just have nothing to say. I guess this slate of three pitchers are worth watching since we're hoping that Felix can remain an ace and that Fister and Vargas can become reliable back-end starters, which are hard to find. That's the best I can do right now.
