Chuck Chuck Go Away, Don't Come Back Ever

Seattle Mariners President Chuck Armstrong, in all seriousness, says in an interview with MLB.com:
"The easiest thing would be to declare victory and walk away from what we have accomplished here -- building a beautiful ballpark, having the best record in baseball from 2000-03, winning a record 116 games and going to the playoffs in 1995, '97, 2000 and 2001."

"Maybe someone else could walk away and feel good about it, but I can't. I care passionately about this place and this organization, and I am more determined than ever to help get this turned back around."

"I trust my own ability to make good decisions."

Year Record
2008 61-101
2007 88-74
2006 78-84
2005 69-93
2004 63-99
2003 93-69
2002 93-69


Payroll in excess of $600 million over the past seven years. I'm convinced this franchise will never right itself.
