That’s Right, I Said First Place Mariners

Don’t look now but the official Major League Baseball team of My Opinion on Sports is sitting at the top of the AL West standings. OK on second thought do look because we don’t know how long it will last but are loving it right now.

Going into tonight’s game against the Minnesota Twins the Mariners have a game and a half lead on both the Angels and A’s and two games on the Rangers.

The Mariners top spot is due to Adrian Beltre’s 10 RBI’s, Ichiro’s .290 batting average, total dominance by Felix Hernandez, and some help from Mother Nature. The realists in me wants to admit that this lead won’t last but the fan in me wants it to go on forever.
