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.

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
