Beat you to it Bob!

It's pretty clear that Bob Finnigan is a closet Mariner Magic reader. In today's Seattle Times, he points to Joel Piniero and Gil Meche as being the keys to a successful second half of the season. Um, been there, done that.

The O's are in town. I live in Baltimore, and the one time I am in Seattle to see the Mariners play, it's the damn Orios. How bout dem O's hon?!

First half review will be posted soon.


  1. Cheer up at least you get to hang with the Mariner Magic crew in person.

    The PI has an interesting article about Pat Gillick today. It goes over the three teams he ahs been with, the Blue Jays, Orioles, and our beloved Mariners. In each scenario he built a contender and sustained that contender for several years and then bolted when the team started to fall. It’s uncanny how each situation parallels the previous. Do we blame Pat for our current state? Maybe, but I wouldn’t trade what he brought this team during the late 90's and early 2000's for anything. If we gotta suffer for a few years to get back to 100 wins I do it.

  2. It's the top of the third, M's vs. O's, and I already have a new key to the second half of the season: I really feel like it would be huge if the Mariners' opponents play roughly like the Orioles played in the bottom of the second inning. It really was an excellent display of mindlessness and baffoonery.

    If we can continue to get that kind of strong performance from other teams, it definitely bodes well for the remainder of the season.
