The Sox winning it all has pretty much changed my whole world-view, as far as baseball is concerned. Anyone else feel the same way? Comments are welcome below.
I will now proceed to take a branding iron to my eyeballs.
To more optomistic notes... Start stoking the stove, the Mariner's front office has some work to do. They need to ignore the Pedro and Lowe temtations, both way past their primes and the M's would basically be paying them retroactively for what the accomplished with Boston. Use the Farm system for pitching and get a couple big bats in. The holes are gigantic, we can fill every position other than left and probably 2nd base, and money to do it... Who to go after???
Firing up the stove: my buddy Joe wants the M's to go for Carlos Delgado. I'd like to see Adrian Beltre and Matt Clement in Mariner colors in 2005, personally.
Beltre would be great, but the Mariners can't pull the trigger on a player like that when Satan will end up offering him A-Rod like $'s.
