I have not come close to the amount of posts from last year. Last year, the Mariners were going to win the World Series and all of the world's problems were going to be solved. This year, who cares.
We have zero expectations for the upcoming season. If we finish at .500, which we will, that will be a joyous occasion and rioting with ensue, I am sure of it. I will say, I am excited about our starting rotation, with Felix and healthy Bedard and a young gun in Pineda. Finally (knock on wood) with Bedard healthy we may see why Bavasi gave away half the team for 3 years ago. Pineda and his 6'8" frame on the mound should be nice to see him overpower hitters. All in all, a good start to the season.
Of course, we still have no offense but the pitching will be outstanding!
