Twitter Tuesday: Seattle Mariners Fans Hopeful For 2015


Time once again for Twitter Tuesday. This week, with the end of the 2014 Mariners season still fresh in our minds, we can’t help but wonder what might have been. However, with management saying that the club will spend more money this offseason, it gives Mariners fans a lot of hope heading into 2015.

So, let’s take a look at some of your more hopeful thoughts you’ve sent out on Twitter, as well as some of your suggestions for who the M’s should acquire.

That’s what I’m talking about! So excited for the start of the season. Good thing people in Seattle have other things to distract them while they wait. I hear there is a team playing a different sport in the stadium next door. Supposedly, they are pretty good.

Indeed. We will resume with the 2015 version of The Hunt For Teal October next season. Is it wrong that I want the Wild-Card spot though? Seems to be working for teams since its inception.

In fact, five times in the past 20 years, the World Series champ was a wild-card team. Five other times, a wild-card team made it to the World Series but lost.

Indeed. The Royals caught many by surprise this season. So much so, that many thought it was a fluke. Those people are in awe now as the Royals dispatched of the team with the best record in baseball (LA Angels) in three virtually effortless games. It also makes Mariners fans wonder what could have been this year, had the M’s made it in.

Now hold on there just one second. Let’s not get carried away. No way the Mets make the playoffs in 2015.

That’s to say….ZERO! These three teams – along with a constantly improving Astros team and a healthy Rangers club – will duke it out again next season. The winner of the AL West may only need 87 or 88 wins to claim it. Now, who are fans asking for the M’s to sign this offseason?

Torii Hunter is rumored to be considering retirement. If he doesn’t, I don’t see him leaving Detroit. But crazier things have happened. As for Butler, his name has been linked to the M’s for a few years now. I don’t see the appeal. Okay, that’s not true, I do. But I wonder if his power numbers will rebound in the offensive death trap known as Safeco Field.

No offense Ryan, but NO NO NO NO NO NO NO!!!!!!!

Ichiro is the opposite of what this team needs. It needs a right-handed power bat, not an aging left-handed slap hitter with no power. Plus, this is the type of move that the “Old Mariners” would make.

The only way I want to see Ichiro back in Seattle next year, is on an opposing team, or as a fan in the crowd.
