Someone actually listened to me

Well, not really. I was reading the Mariners post-game recap article from last night’s victory and the first two paragraphs are dedicated to J.J. Putz. They are using him to close now. In fact, they have gone so far to call in "Everyday J.J". Not as catchy as "Everyday Eddie", but it will do for now.

The Mariners are NOT in last place in the AL West (probably called the AL worst this year). We have a 2.5 game lead over Anaheim and only 2 games back from first place in the division. We are a bunch of fighters. I wouldn't be surprised if this year in August, the M's go on a winning streak bender of sorts.

To put this into some perspective: The only team at or above .500 in the AL West is the first place Rangers, they are exactly .500. Looking at the NL West, who last year was chastised for having the division winner barely break the .500 mark; everyone is over .500 in that division. Yes, everyone! When the Rockies have a better record than you team, be afraid, be very afraid.
