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!

What a Weekend...

As Jeremy over at Sports & B's says, it's fun to be a M's fan right now. And it's about fricking time. Honestly.

-- Mariners Lineup + Jose Lopez - Bret Boone = Much Improved.

-- Matt Thornton: As if heartburn isn't already a problem for me.

-- Pedro: Who's your daddy now?

-- Morse: Will I ever figure you out? Will I ever fall for you? Not yet, but you are making it more and more difficult with every opposite-field hit.

-- Which bottom of the order sounds better: Randy Winn, Miguel Olivo, Wilson Valdez or Jeremy Reed, Michael Morse, and Rene Rivera. Answer.... you better know. And it makes a huge difference. We aren't throwing away innings without any chance of a rally.

-- Mike Hargrove: Please learn how to control a bullpen. And get rid of somebody. (Thornton)

-- That was, perhaps, on Saturday, the worst umpiring I have ever seen. That strike zone could not have been figured out by Stephen Hawking himself.

-- I like the new Pepsi with Lime.

-- Check out USSMariner, Lookout Landing, and Sports & B's for terrific posts today. Lookout Landing has one of the best posts I have ever seen on the Death Spiral of Matt Thornton.

-- Now Oakland! Bring it on! (post forthcoming)
