    Seattleites support mediocrity at every level. Being ok is just fine. We are some of the most vanilla fans in the world. Expecting more shouldn't be looked down on.

    Rodney is on the edge of combustion at all times but he can be downright unhittable when he is on. 98 on the black followed up by a mid 80s change with movement, wow!

    I'm so excited for winning baseball to be back. A playoff push would go a long way to bringing the fans back. I can see the change already but I'm excited for this to continue. I'll be going to several games down the stretch.

    I predicted a .500 season..... we still have enough games to get there!

    I wondered how Charles was holding up after learning of this Mariner sweep of the Sox.

    His record speaks for itself. I agree closers are an unstable bunch. Unless you have a Mariano Rivera on your rooster.

    5 more hours of time on the water than i've had lately. I'd take those hours of "quality skunk time" any day of the week.

    PT, just because you have your ten year rooted opinion doesn't change the fact that they are in contention now and with a month to go really are able to control their own fate for a change. You may not find that enough change for refreshment. I certainly do.

    And without any further ado, Fernando Rodney takes the hill with a 2-2 tie in the 10th, walks four batters, walking in the go ahead run for the Athletics. Three up, three down in the M's 10th, now a full game back of the A's in the AL wildcard. Thanks Fernando, ever think of just throwing something down the middle of the damned plate and let your defense have some input on the games outcome?

    Come on Ed, obviously Fernando was setting them up for the 11th. Not his fault the Mariners didn't score in the bottom of the inning.

    Live by the closer, die by the closer.

    Talking about the Mariners. Their bats have been real quiet lately. They can get a runner as far as 2nd base but don't have the power to get him home. Their catcher is Pathetic. A .195 BA. He always swings at the bad pitches and stands there with the bat on his shoulder with a pitch down the middle.

    Don't get me started.

    Their offense has suffered all season. The main reason that if they did make it to the playoffs they likely wouldn't go far. A good defensive catcher that bats .200 doesn't bother me much but a professional hitter that hits .220 or less does. Seattle has two of those.

    A key defender at or below the Mendoza line may be tolerable. Multiple players flirting with that low standard when they are expected to add to the offensive output is intolerable. Good point Kerry.

    Ed, I fixed your spelling errors and retrieved this thread from NFR oblivion. I think this quote, incidentally, would make for a cool t-shirt.
