Free Agent Fan No More

It’s official! The votes are in from the poll and they concur with my initial thoughts of making the Seattle Mariners my new team to follow in Major League Baseball. Seattle received the most voted in my opinion poll followed by the Dodgers, staying with the Royals and then the Blue Jays.

The Mariners are currently 20-25, in third place in the AL West and only three games out of first place. Raise your hand if you think the Rangers are going to continue to play at the level that has put them in first place? That’s what I thought. Seattle is very much in contention for the AL West title and it will be fun following a contender for a change.

In a related story the Royals are on a 9 game losing streak.
