Un Bleeping Believeable

Mariners are going to miss the playoffs again for the21st straight season , a collapse for the ages. They cant even score a run.

Re: Un Bleeping Believeable

Hate that for you Bubbles but I have absolutely zero sympathy for the Mariners. They poached Winker, Castillo and Suarez from the Reds. I get so tired of seeing it happen

Re: Re: Un Bleeping Believeable

Poaching ? It's called making your team better , but unfortunately Winker has sucked , but we signed Castillo for 5 yrs and we have Suarez signed too. Dont hate appreciate, you must be a Reds fan .Too bad we are in the midst of one of the worst choke jobs of all time.

Re: Un Bleeping Believeable

Yeah I’m a reds fan I just hate it when teams serve as feeder programs for bigger teams.
Frustrating

Re: Re: Un Bleeping Believeable

Bubbles and Hicksy, it might be time to just create your own All-Mariners (or All-Reds) league and just live in your own world. You can almost ignore the present reality, just checking in once in a while to see what new players you get to add to your league. Works great for me and my All-Twins league. Makes the inevitable yearly choke much more tolerable. I recommend it.

Re: Un Bleeping Believeable

I'm talking about real baseball , not the made up sim kind. You might have heard of it , its called Major League Baseball in the year 2022

Re: Re: Un Bleeping Believeable

The Seattle Mariners made arguably one of the worst Trades in MLB History

(I won't count The Red Sox selling Babe Ruth to the Yankees because it wasn't a Trade)

Mariners gave up Derek Lowe and Jason Varitek for Heathcliff Slocumb

Red Sox GM Dan Duquette tried to rescind the deal because Varitek was over weight and he discovered that Derek Lowe was not a Lefty which is what he was told - But the Mariners stood firm - And a decade of Red Sox fans are forever in Seattle's debt



Re: Re: Un Bleeping Believeable

I agree Bubbles. It’s the way things are now but I still don’t have to like it. ;)

Re: Un Bleeping Believeable

Bubbles, I know what you were talking about. I was trying to say that if you’re tired of watching the real-life Major League Baseball 2022 Seattle Mariners, then you could at least get some pleasure from spending more time on a fake Sim version of your Mariners. Sort of in fun, but sort of serious too. It does work for me, although I do still pay attention to the real life MLB Twins.

Re: Un Bleeping Believeable

They are still 3.5 up which is quite a lot considering how many games remain. Not suggesting they are playing well though.

Re: Un Bleeping Believeable

I'm interested in your All-Twins league

Re: Re: Un Bleeping Believeable

It's a decent League, but the Commissioner is shaky... :)

Re: Re: Un Bleeping Believeable

It's the Mariners, they'll find a way to screw it up.

Re: Un Bleeping Believeable

I am here near Philadelphia, thinking the Phil's are going to find a way out of the playoffs. Swept by the Cubs, in low scoring games where is the offense. You have my condolences for Seattle.

Re: Un Bleeping Believeable

They are in the driver's seat

Re: Re: Un Bleeping Believeable

only way they dont make playoffs is if they lose all their remaining games and orioles win all theirs. I'm gonna go out on a limb and say that won't happen.

Re: Un Bleeping Believeable

Hollywood couldn't have come up with a better ending !!!!! 21 long years erased on one pitch !!!! 7648 days since they last made the playoffs. Now I wonder which team in the 4 major sports has the crown for longest playoff drought ? It's not the Mariners.

Re: Re: Un Bleeping Believeable

It's now the Sacramento Kings (16 years).

Re: Un Bleeping Believeable

You need more faith & trust in your team
