It could be worse, really. I mean, we could be looking at our best season since 1994, stuck behind the best team in the American League and watching our one time best prospect in all of baseball catapult a different team to the first Wild Card Spot, realizing that there really isn't a plan and this whole sell for today thing just might sink the whole boat.
Questions to ponder:
1. Which could-have-been Mariners prospect do you wish you could rewrite history for? David Ortiz? Adam Jones? Someone else?
2. We talked a little about Felix's perfecto in the game thread. If you didn't there, tell us what you did that day--or your favorite moment from the game.
3. Ice cubes in non-water drinks: yay or nay?
4. Thoughts on this whole instant replay business?
