          Hurts to be a Mariners fan

          • Spit on me I deserve it

            When you realize that the mariners barley missed having Ichiro, A-Rod, Griffey and Edgar Rodriguez and more on the same squad.... thats 4 HOF Level offensive Stars on 1 team if they didnt mess up

              They were cursed after making so much money and not signing Miguel Tejada after 2003 season, I became a huge fan to a huge hater. I’m glad they are still bad now and hope they will never win anything!

                  This makes me so sick . I rember around this time feeling like the mariners would always be competitive. Too bad basketball and baseball are my thing and not at all football

                          Every time I go to T-Ball (T-Mobile) Park in Seattle, I want that 116 wins banner in the rafters to be removed. Who celebrates something like that??? It's the worst professional participation award in all of sports. Show me an athlete that wears a ring celebrating the most regular season wins. You'll find no one...

                                The Mariners Slogan was, 2 outs so what. I have to admit I never seen anything like that since. They would score 3 runs, on a two hour at bat.
                                But at 3:44 that's funny!

                                  if the 01 mariners had kept griffey johnson and rodriguez they would have betten the yankees and probably won the world series

                                    Damn, 90+ win season isn't good enough for the playoffs. That's like the 11 win Arizona Cardinals being left out of the playoffs because the 49ers and Seahawks had better records.

                                      The 2000's was horrible for Seattle. The Mariners teased and choked, the Sonics left for Oklahoma City and became the Thunder and Frasier came to an end. The Seahawks also got screwed out of Super Bowl 40 to the Steelers.

                                        Can u imagine the Seattle NHL team making the playoffs before the Mariners break their playoff drought?

                                              That 116-win 2001 team managed to blow a 12-0 lead in a game

                                                  If they didnt blow a 12 run lead against the Indians they would have an mlb record 117 wins

                                                                          This year would’ve been the year tbh but instead management decided to trade and gain some top prospects for the future

                                                                          The problem is GM Jerry Said he wanted to make a push for the playoffs in 2020-2021 BUT out of the pool of promising prospects we got only a few of them are going to be ready for the big leagues by that time

                                                                          Logan Gilbert, Evan White and Jarred Kelenic look like they have some serious potential but we won’t even see Evan until 2020 and Logan and Jarred aren’t going to be ready until 2022

                                                                          So management wants a young hungry team that’ll be ready in 2021 but they traded and drafted for players that won’t even be ready by then and if they are we’ll only see them in the 2021 40 man

                                                                          It’s really hard being a Seattle fan sometimes...

                                                                                • Vladiator

Goes to show you that those Yankees teams were ruthless in the postseason.
