Let me save the M's fans some time.
The hype train will start in spring like this team is turning a new page. They'll alocate money to a position that doesn't need it, then tade away any good prospect for another redundant player. PR teams will overhype the crap out Of a failed mess to sell tickets/merch to unsuspecting rubes. Finally, The Mariners will look good for the first month, then play sub-par baseball the rest of the season. Culminating in another pitiful playoffless finish.
That's Mariners baseball. There is no reason to watch or entertain this team whatsoever. Watch a leaky faucet instead, just as eventful (maybe more so).
They have to be one of the worst professonal franchises in all of sports. A culture of mediocrity and losing runs deep with this team. Can we trade the whole team for a large pizza (or anything else remotely good or useable)?
