Shhh... the season started. Don't wake up.
While you were sleeping, the baseball season started.
Like Christmas morning, Mariner fans woke up and to their delight saw their team won a game. What a terrific present.
What a stupid way to start the season.
I'm not saying have a huge spectacular like football. But what kind of marketing mind thinks like this:
Hey! Here's how we start the season. We take two teams who have virtually no shot of winning, fly them to Asia and have them play a game at 3AM West Coast time to make sure any people who actually follow those teams will be sound asleep.
Is this to get attention in Japan? I've seen the reporters swarm around Ichiro, Matsui and now Yu Darvish. They notice!
