We just returned from a 4 day trip to Seattle to celebrate my 72nd. While my Huskies were very disappointing despite a stout defense against a big Stanford offensive line, the Seattle Mariners kept their season in play through the final game which we attended to watch King Felix do his magic after a brutal loss to Toronto Blue Jays in his last start. His 15th win just might get him his second Cy Young award.
Husky fans can only hope with a bye this week the Dawgs will get an offense back with some of that star dust from the M's who made each game meaningful until the very end of the season despite a roller coaster year. The M's have the nucleus of a great team baring injuries next year and the stupid management tricks the M's are noted for. They need to get a big bopper who can hit with men on base without giving up the farm!
For now M's fans can hope for a better season next year where we get to the playoffs not just within one game of them! Keep Hope Alive.
RAD's favorite Mariner, Dustin Ackley gets a key hit!
