The Mariners aren't GOOD are they?
They were supposed to stink going into this year.
And frankly a quick peak at their stats on Baseball Reference isn't pretty.
Even Ichiro's stats look mortal.
Yet here we sit in June with the Mariners only a game out of first in the loss column.
Justin Smoak's bat is starting to live up to its name.
Adam Kennedy is giving the team some pop.
And Jason Vargas (Jason VARGAS?) threw a complete game shutout.
Are we living in a world where Seattle AND Cleveland might be good again?
OK, maybe I'm getting carried away. I still think the Angels are going to win the division and the Mariners might just be having a nice middle third of the season.
Either way, I wish they'd go back to the Trident hat.
