Ya gotta believe


Ya gotta believe

Apologies to the late great Tug McGraw , but as a lifetime Mariner fan I've been waiting 20 years for a playoff berth. After taking 3 of 4 from the A's this weekend ,I was starting to think it may be possible. Then who comes into town but the hated Astros who always kick our butts. Before people are even settled into their seats its 6-0 and later 7-0. oh well. By the way we won 11-8 with a grand slam in the bottom of the 8th. I have an outstanding bet with a few people that the Kraken will make the playoffs b4 the M's. I hope I lose that bet soon

Re: Ya gotta believe

So much for that , they just traded their best rp Graveman who has a sub 1 era to the astros for 2 nobodies , " cmon charlie brown , i swear i wont pull the football away this time " Makes no sense whatsoever , there is a reason the M's have gone the longest in all pro sports without making the playoffs and it's moves like this.

Re: Ya gotta believe

The Kraken definitely look to be able to make the playoffs in a weak Pacific.

Re: Re: Ya gotta believe

well i will admit when im wrong , one of the nobodies they got in the deal , abraham toro has homered in 4 strait games and the ms traded for a better and younger closer in diego castillo. that being said got to love what the dodgers did but as we all know playoffs are a crapshoot
