MARINERS: Déjà vu all over again

Call me a “glass is half-empty” kind of guy. Nevertheless, I hear in the distance the beginning of a slow drumbeat, growing louder.

Granted, the Mariners’ attendance is tanking; so how soon will there be whispers from management that the team might be sold (to local interests only, of course!) unless attendance improves, unless there are major improvements to Safeco Field, in order to increase revenues.

When no viable potential local ownership appears, the team will be sold, reluctantly of course, to out-of-state interests. We all remember the Seattle Pilots and the Seattle Sonics, of course. Are we being set up for the perfect trifecta?

Is the “Safe” destined to be the largest RV park in the Northwest?
