Finally. About Darn Time. The wait is OVER! Baseball is back and it’s here to stay. Spring Training was fun and all, but it gets old quite fast. Eventually, everyone gets tired of the projections, and the meaningless games. Meaning is what people search for in life, and those who are lucky enough to see the light, and find that meaning in baseball, are about to be rewarded.
However, baseball is fun and all, but it’s about time we see the Seattle Mariners win and contend for a playoff spot. And when I say contend, I mean to actually make the playoffs.
In order for the Mariners to do that, they need to have a successful April, as a successful April will set them up for the success in the rest of the year.
Momentum is key, and the Mariners too often have a bad first half of the season, only to try to push and make a run in the second half, but come up just short. It’s time to change that tradition, and jump out to a hot start, and stick with it.
So what should we be looking for this April? Well, let me break it down for you. If these three things can be accomplished, the Mariners will be in good shape moving forward.
