From a Seattle sports perspective, not the best.
The year started off with the highest of all expectations for the Mariners, potential World Series representation. Instead we finished as one of the worst teams in all of major league baseball. Felix Hernandez did win the Cy Young award, so we do have that going for us as we enter 2011. We do better as a team in odd years anyway.
The Seahawks went out and hired a coach with ADHD in the hopes his energy would rub off on the players and turn into some wins. That too did not turn out to be true either. Between injuries and a QB controversy, who knows what 2011 will bring for the Seachickens. I am smelling a draft day trade-up!
The way I see it, we can only go up from here. The Mariners should finish closer to .500 once our youngsters start to click and build some momentum as the spring months roll into summer. The Seachickens will do their homework and draft the best player possible with whatever spot falls to them, maybe a QB or a potential hidden gem of a RB in a year of weak running backs.
Good luck to our sports teams in 2011!
