Crushed Optimists

We are twin brothers who grew up in Central Washington. This blog is devoted to the life of Seattle sports fans, as well as various other topics that we will espouse for your enjoyment. We could be called another OFFICIAL SEATTLE SEAHAWKS site, but we'll take our uneducated crack at the Mariners, Sonics, and Huskies as well. A Seattle Sports Blog? Must be the land... of crushed optimism!

Changing Leagues

One of the truly interesting aspects of MLB to me are the different styles of play between the NL and AL, and how a quality player (Rich Aurilia) can struggle so much in transition. Phil Rogers, one of my favorite writers at, has an excellent article detailing the top ten players who switched leagues this offseason and how he expects them to do. This is obviously important to us for both Richie Sexson and Adrian Beltre. Their ability to quickly learn and pick up American League pitching will be huge for our offense to pick up steam and confidence early.
