We had a feeling didn't we? After a brutal September collapse that saw the Seattle Mariners sitting at home watching the Astros and Rangers play for championships, we thought this, this is the floor.

Then we saw the end-of-season press conference by Jerry Dipoto, and the ensuing media backlash and mockery of the franchise for the 54% quotes and telling fans to be grateful. Ok, this has to be the floor, right?

Then free agency started and the years of dreaming about Shohei Ohtani and Blake Snell as Mariners were dashed. This hurts, finally the flo…

And then, we find out that the Mariners are broke! John Stanton and company are not technically broke, actually far from it. The slow and painful death of regional sports networks and bad business decisions have essentially tanked Root, as well as the local TV providers jacking up the prices for fans in the local market.
