What Happened?

As June was coming to a close the Mariners were above .500, in second place in the division and just a single game back from Oakland for first place. Now six days into the month of July they have lost four in a row, are a game under.500 and are now 2.5 games back. With the 2006 “Miracle Team” Detroit Tigers coming to town, the Mariners had better pull themselves back together.

As for Carl Everett and skipper Mike Hargrove getting into a shouting match, who cares? Name a major league manager who hasn’t ticked off one of his players or vice versa. All I ask, Carl, is that you think of the team before you go and act stupid again like you did Wednesday night and got tossed for it.

Oh yeah, and let’s work on those shut-outs. I mean not getting them! If allowing their first three game sweep of the season wasn’t embarrassing enough it came on the Mariners league leading 10th shut-out of the season.

There my little rant is over now go beat the Tigers!
