There is not much positive I can write in todays Blog except the Angels are coming to town tomorrow and they have lost 7 in a row. Felix Hernandez who was shaky in his last outing will get the ball, and if there ever was a time for a stopper to come in and win a game it’s tomorrow. The Mariners brought up Michael Saunders from AAA to take Milton Bradley’s spot on the 25 man roster while he sorts out his life.
Like a lot of you I’m a bit at a loss for words for what has transpired over the last week. I attended last Fridays game and had a feeling after the way we missed opportunities twice to score in extra innings that it would be hard to shake-off that loss. Of course I had no idea it was going to last a week. I could rattle off all the stats, point fingers, suggest new lineup changes, or perhaps just try to stay calm and hope for a win tomorrow.
For a minute today I thought of joining the bone-yard of abandoned Mariners Blogs, but like those of you still reading this I am a Mariners Fan. I’ve been conditioned over the last 3 decades to try and stay somewhat detached after watching teams much worse than what we have this year do all sorts of unbelievable things. I guess we all are taking it a little harder this year after the offseason hype and perhaps a bit of denial about the make-up of the 2010 team. But the reality is we are 4 games back and it’s still early. Who knows I may even head down to the Safe tomorrow……http://jeffsmariners.com
