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!

Random Thoughts on a Slow News Day

- Larry Brown is now interviewing with the Knicks. Is there anything Isaiah Thomas can't do? Larry Brown + Jerome James = massive entertainment for Sonics fans.

- The Seattle PI has a very small and very stupid NFC preview with us as the favorites. Congratulations. A seven year old could have written something better.

- The M's fail to win one game from the Blue Jays, getting swept behind the force which is Joel Piniero. Quick, M's fans, name our worst pitcher, Sele, Franklin, or Piniero? I know, it's a tough one, but I think I'll actually go with Piniero. The guy is lost.

- What's up with JJ Putz? If he doesn't start keeping the ball in the park, I say send him down to AAA and call up Clint Nageotte. It's getting pretty darn old.

- Gavin fantasy update... the insertion of Vernon Wells, CF, Toronto into my lineup when taking on the Blue Jays. Result: 11 TB, 4 runs, 5 RBI, and a .500 OBP. Pretty poor effort by our pitching staff (the abovementioned losers).

- Bill Simmons writes about the Red Sox... AGAIN. I'm not even going to link to it. Give it a rest, man!

- Eddie Guardado wants to stay and not be traded because he thinks the M's will be pretty competitive next year. That is awful sweet of him, but if we can get an actual prospect, we need to do it now. In the meantime, why the heck is Randy Winn still on our ballclub?

- Scott Spiezio hit a home run last night... when it didn't matter. Hard to get excited about it. He will continue to suck anytime he's up in the ninth inning with a man on.

Hopefully Friday has some actual stories worth writing about.
