MARINERS: Team’s a disappointment – again

I love baseball. Every spring I look forward to having a home team to follow and root for. And what do I get? Insult after insult!

How many years does it take to learn how to put together a winning team? This year’s Mariners team is unbalanced – too heavy on youth and inexperience. It’s almost as if the “powers that be” delight in insulting the fans.

The Mariners do not belong in the major leagues. If you’re not in it to win, get out of the game. The people in charge should be ashamed of themselves for what they’ve done to baseball in the Northwest.

I will not be at the ballpark or in front of the TV after yet another year of nothing. Goodbye, Mariners.
