Mariners Off to a Good Start

Just in case you weren’t aware, the Seattle Mariners are the official baseball team of My Opinion on Sports. They are also off to good start not a great one but a good start. A great start would have been a sweep of the Oakland Athletics but as it is the Mariners took 2 of 3 games in the series.

After the first series of the season Ichiro leads the team with a .400 batting average while Richie Sexon leads in home runs (2) RBI’s (5) and runs (2). Seattle is a half game back from the 3-0 Angels.

The thing that bothered me in this series was Wednesday’s loss. Not the fact that they lost but that they failed to produce any offense, something that plagued them last season. Hopefully that’s a trend that won’t continue as the Mariners head to Cleveland for a four games series with the currently undefeated Indians.
