What A Road Trip

Another loss to complete a masterful 1 and 5 road trip. There isn’t much to say about this game. I watched the later innings when the mariners gave the game away. I three run bomb moved the game out of reach for our Hometown nine. Hitting on this tripe started out great but as the trip moved on I saw a lot of 4 hit or less games, or at least I feel that way.

What can we say, Beltre hit a HR, Sexson is still the MVP on offense on this team. Morse needs some Defense work but still hits like a machine. Yawn lets get some excitement.
I really am bummed about this team of late, I am hopeful though that a trade will be made to better the mariner's Future. There is no way we can get pavano for winn, don’t even kid yourselves. But prospects would be nice. This morning on KJRAM they are going over how the mariners worry about their image and how that is going to hurt them in the long run. They may feel to loyal to certain players to do what is best for the team.

I just long for the old days, the miracles that happened. Long Win streaks, high offense, great pitching. The town was abuzz with mariner pride. I remember when John Keister, the host of our Local "Almost Live" Show, came out in a mariners Jersey. At one point would have been considered a joke to start of the Comedy show but instead he was fired up and the crowd gave a standing ovation, hooting and hollering, Pumping their fists and High fiveing each other reminiscent of the Hive Fiving White Guys. Where have those days gone?? Its hard not to get fired up for the days of old, but that’s the problem, I can get fired up for the days of old, but I cannot for what lies ahead. The luster is gone, but hopefully Mariner nation can somehow bring it back.

I really don’t want them to overpay for a guy, but perhaps teams will overpay us. There really isn’t a guy out there that makes me think wow if we can snag him.....fill in the blank. Right now there are a bunch of Jeff Suppans, and guys like that. Not someone I think the mariners need.


  1. Whatever happened to John Keister, anyway?

    At one point, KONG was showing reruns of Almost Live. Imagine how quickly a DVD box set would sell, were such a thing available.

    I used to think Almost Live! was better than SNL. I'm sure I wasn't alone.

    Should we start a "Bring back Almost Live!" campaign? Hmmm...

  2. That was a depressing post Travis.

  3. it was but what do you expect after a 1-5 road trip

  4. You didn’t like my Almost live reference Mikey? At least Paul caught it ^^
