Mariners just gave up 3 runs in the bottom of the 9th to lose 4-3. Hmm..sure wish they had a quality relief pitcher
This happened to 2 games in a row. A home run in the bottom of the 10th yesterday and the bottom of the 9th today. Where is there a reliver when you want one. This really sucks. Good bye playoffs
I'm not much of a sports fan lately. I haven't watched any sports and neither have I watched the Olympics' Just can't get into it.Keep the faith OMJ......another bobble head night is coming up to get folks excited.
I can’t remember if it is going to be Bobby Ayala or Eric (4.2 innings) Bedard.

Bavasi went all in. They have never recovered. Sexson, Beltre et al. was the last time they "overspent".What happens if it doesn’t work?
It’s hard to say based on the Mariners track record as I don’t really recall them ever going all in.
As far as cash, Seattle is the 12th rank I believe media market. Not on par with LA, Ny or Boston but not piss poor either......
Mariner ownership has never been willing to shell out big $$$ to try and win.
I do agree with D3, they are going to have to do so at some point or this current Mariner rebuild will just be a repeat of the past 20 years of futility.
FiggyRemember Chone Figgins? Didn't he suffer the worst case of Marineritus ever? He was a solid pick-up on paper, and got bit by the Mariner bug and it crushed his career.
He and Ichiro hitting back to back were going to be unstoppable... that one was higher power (above the clouds) and not really a higher management mistake in my mind.

I understand M's fans frustrations. There issue has always been lack of player development. That has been the issue much more so than spending.
Mostly agreed. He made a series of moves. Those were the bad signings. He also paid a bunch of players, made the Bedard trade etc. I agree that they are poorly run. No question.Sexton had two good years before he dropped off. Beltre unfortunately played better before he became a Mariner and after he left.
Both were signed as free agents if I remember correctly, so the Mariners gave up no prospects to acquire them.
If a team can’t recover after signing two free agents 15 years ago that just shows what poorly run organization they are.
If they ever should have gone all in which I don’t think they ever have is when Lou Pinella was manager. He wanted to add players but management battled him on that.
Howard Lincoln, Chuck Armstrong....... what a joke.
Did you just admit that your ARE a Mariners fan? And that you are fanatical?Part of being fanatical about sports is having an opinion on the game, its players, the ownership, management, etc.
I said if you don't like it, don't watch it. You don't have to stop, you get a choice.Hmmm, because I’m fanatical as you say I’m not allowed to be fanatical about what I see and have to stop watching.
Whaaaat? Can we introduce this concept to the Anti-Vaxxers?At some point all those that become fanatical would have to stop watching because whether we agree with the management or not we are all fans. Circular firing squad.
