Listening to the Mariners game on the radio yesterday…two throwing errors on the same play…and having a look at the horrendous batting averages of these Seattle goofballs, I can’t help but compare them to the early New York Mets. I remember the “Amazins” with Marvelous Marv Throneberry, Ed Cranepool and the rest of that hapless team. It was a total joke. The 2012 Mariners are nearly clones of those Mets! And! They actually pay them for this crap! Millions! At this very minute, they're playing a game against Cleveland and the Mariners have two (!!!) professional (???) athletes hitting under 140 in the starting lineup! This is disgraceful!
(By the way, Ken Levine is a great radio announcer and I've finally learned to appreciate Rick RZZs. Together, they're really great! ...just PLEASE keep Ron Fairly off the air...PLEASE!)
Oh...as a follow-up, the batless Mariners (Batless in Seattle) managed to find a way to blow away a 4-run lead and take it up the butt from Cleveland...again. The Mariners really do suck!
Also, I've had it up to here (!) with the local sports media buffoons being so critical of Ichiro. Aside from (maybe) that Mariner pitcher (what's-his-name), Ichiro is the only real professional athlete on the team.
