The Mariner’s record is basically the same now (12-17) as it was last year. They are again in last place in the AL West, again suffering through a nasty offensive slump with some pretty shaky starting pitching, too. Like last year. But, it still doesn’t feel as bad to me as last year did. Somehow, I have more hope that Adrian Beltre will start hitting, more hope than I had in a Scott Spezio turnaround last year, for sure. The games I’ve seen have been more interesting, with the Mariners battling back and sometimes winning after falling behind a few runs. Maybe the pregnancy hormones are affecting my outlook, making it sunnier. (Ha!) I haven’t been posting about every game we’ve attended, and that will probably continue. I’m a bit distracted this year. And, just how many more games will we attend this year? It’s hard to say. It depends on when the baby arrives, and how things go after. Some babies sleep peacefully through things like ball games, visits to the store, fireworks displays, etc and some… well, some do not do anything peacefully! Can’t tell ahead of time which you’re going to get!
