Since we’re two hours away from gametime and the fate of humanity won’t exactly be settled today in any event, we bring you some lighter fare designed to liven up an otherwise routine day at spring training.

It’s the Mariners TV commericals, one of the team’s better marketing endeavors the past decade-plus. Every team needs to market something and they say a picture is worth a thousand words. Not sure how many thousands a video will be worth, but it saves me having to type them all. Anyhow, here are the commercials for your viewing pleasure, falling under a new “True to the Blue” slogan the M’s are using.

As usual, the spots are a collaboration between the Mariners and the Seattle-based Copacino+Fujikado agency, directed by Ron Gross of Mercer Island-based Blue Goose Productions.

4. One Wish

Mariners fans sure do love to dream big. Raul Ibanez? Not so sure.

One of the better ones in this year’s collection, with Brendan Ryan being himself.
