Why do the mariners tend to have disappointing seasons after having good seasons 

Post#1 » by Blazers-1977 » Sun Jun 11, 2017 5:33 am

In 2004 they went 63-99 after being 93-69 in 2003

In 2008 they went 61-101 after being 88-74 in 2007 and for no reason as the future looked bright for Seattle entering the season, and were expected to win the division

In 2010 they went 61-101 after being 85-77 in 2009 and were expected to win the division

In 2015 they went 76-86 after being 87-75 in 2014 and were expected to improve on that record that year

and now a season removed from being 86-76 and starting season with very high expectations they are struggling again

Probably all Cactus Jack's fault.
We watched the tragedy unfold. We did as we were told, we bought and sold. It was the greatest show on Earth...but then it was over.

I'd second this post if aimed at any poster other than cactus (got your back buddy :wink: )

But glad the ex-Griffey jrs are not doing well

it's very hard to sustain momentum year to year injuries and player regression are always factors look at this years Cubs team for an example

The M's won't be competitive for a while. So, it's not that big a deal in the grande scheme of things.

You're supposed to give my Astros all your best players in exchange for nothing so that we can win another WS. Get with the program, man!

:wink:

I saw you guys are getting an NHL team? Nice! Now they need to give you the Sonics back. The NBA without the Seattle Supersonics is blasphemy.

Yeah, not a hockey fan tho. Ballmer should just move the Clippers when the Arena will be ready in 2.5 years.
