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!

Have Fun Picking Up Your Paycheck

I have to agree with the guys at Sports & B's and Lookout Landing. The 2005 M's officially have stopped trying. We have Ichiro struggling, Randy Winn sinking back down to his usual slide to irrelevance (as Gavin predicted), Beltre still rediscovering his power stroke, Sexson striking out, Ibanez pulling EVERYTHING, Boone desperately trying not to suck, Reed actually playing well (wow, you mean the rookie is the only guy still playing hard?), Morse remembering that he hit .260 in the minors (as USSMariner predicted), and Borders remembering that he should be picking between different swatches at the Home Depot.

On the other side, we have a completely inconsistent starting rotation that has a curse laid down on the 1st inning whereby teams are guaranteed to score, and a bullpen that still includes one Matthew Thornton. Bavasi, listen, work needs to be done here. This collection of guys will win no more than 70 games. Do. Something. Now.

As for me, I have no more energy to devote to these guys for a while. Have a great 4th of July weekend!
