Conversely, That Was One Shitty Sunday

Like I wrote following yesterday's improbable win rooting for the Seattle Mariners can be hellish most of the time. Today was yet another reminder.

One of the Most Satisfying Saturday Nights of My Life

Rooting for this team can be hellish most of the time but games like tonight remind me why I'll always love baseball. Go M's.

Cops and LOLCATS: Together at Last!

July 9th, save the date!

The Seattle Mariners host the Texas Rangers at Safeco Field. That night the M's will host a WACOPS night, honoring local law enforcement. The very same game will also celebrate Cheezburger Night.

My oh my.

Where Amazing Racism Happens

Donald Sterling to Receive NAACP Award. What??

Clippers owner / sex fiend /super racist Donald Sterling is set to receive a lifetime award from the NAACP on Thursday. The civil rights organization, in deciding to honor Sterling, overlooked his previous transgressions as well as his cruel habit of giving out Clippers tickets to local youth groups.

Instead it praised Donald for a "sterling" record of overpaying black basketball players. Baron Davis, Tim Thomas, Cuttino Mobley, Michael Olowokandi...

Bleak House

First-round draft picks by the Seattle Mariners this decade:

2000: NONE
2001: Michael Garciaparra (compensation pick)
2002: John Mayberry (didn't sign)
2003: Adam Jones (compensation pick... and we all know how this one turned out)
2004: NONE
2005: Jeff Clement
2006: Brandon Morrow
2007: Phillippe Aumont, Matt Mangini
2008: Joshua Fields

Garciaparra has been a career minor leaguer. Mayberry didn't sign with the M's and played at Stanford. He's currently in the Rangers system. I can't even talk rationally about the Adam Jones debacle so let's move on. Clement is heading back down to AAA and may converted to 1B and/or traded. Mangini looks to never make it to the show.

So that leaves Morrow, Aumont and Fields. Now that Seattle is determined to make all three of them relievers I think it's safe to say it's been an awful decade of high draft picks.
