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 is it with every young exciting player we want to see that makes them injure themselves? Chris Snelling is apparently under the sign of the beast for continuing to have all these injuries, including the most recent ACL tear.

I was really looking forward to seeing what Snelling can do. Now I have to freaking see Scott Spiezio be our DH every day. Awful.

Possible good news: sign power free agent to be our left fielder in the offseason
Possible good news: gives Bucky the chance to be our DH as he's tearing it up in AA right now

Speaking of the latter, has anyone checked out Lookout Landing recently? Every single minor league write up they do has Bucky hitting another bomb. Why the heck isn't he doing it here? The paper mentioned Jamal Strong or Abraham Nunez. That would be stupid (although pretty normal for how Bavasi's handled the minor leaguers this year). Bring up Bucky!

Two days until I see Felix!
