Remember The 80's? 

Remember when, a few years ago, it was hip to listen to 80's pop songs for a while? Eighties radio stations starting popping up across the nation, and all of a sudden it was a feather in your cap to know all the words to "Come On Eileen." Then people starting catching on. We all remembered why no one had heard Frankie Goes To Hollywood's "Relax" in ten years: that music blew then, and it blows now.

Fast forward to 2004. The Mariners sign Raul Ibanez, Ron Villone, and Terry Mullholland (Bill Bavasi is looking up Mike Kingery's digits as we speak). People start reminiscing. "I remeber Raul Ibanez! I always liked him!" and so on. Reality will set in, and when he's hitting .260 with five home runs at the All-Star break, we'll all be reminded why he was let go in the first place. As history takes its course, Raul Ibanez will be the "You Spin Me (Like a Record)" of Mariners baseball.
