Last night, the Mariners got five solid innings from Taijuan Walker, but again didn’t score all that many runs and would up blowing yet another game late. Oh yeah, and they played in front of their all-time smallest crowd at Safeco Field, which is to be expected when you are 14 games under .500 and playing a team destined for roughly 110 losses on the first Monday night of the NFL season when ESPN is offering up a pigskin doubleheader.
Anyone for a Mariners doubleheader? Thank God for Safeco Field’s roof, huh?
So, yeah, this season will go down as yet another epic disappointment. There is always the promise of next year, and the year after that, which is generally what it’s all about in sports since only one team wins a championship and all the others have room for improvement.
