darkwinterbeast8;4330628 said:And history is not on the side of a team that's made the playoffs just twice in their 40 plus years of existence, especially in a sport with no Salary Cap or revenue sharing.
ultimatespidey81;4353370 said:boo for you picking the white sox as the 3rd team, at best lol, in the central. i would love the rockies if i trusted their pitching staff. i like your individual awards picks too. especially ubaldo. too bad he can't take up two spots in their rotation haha
ultimatespidey81;4354036 said:the twins can't even win a playoff game let alone the WS. but props for the ballsy pick. i just went with everyones favorite haha
darkwinterbeast8;4354450 said:As for my ballsiest pick...The Seattle Mariners will win less than 40 games this year and over half of them will be won by King Felix.
darkwinterbeast8;4354450 said:As for my ballsiest pick...The Seattle Mariners will win less than 40 games this year and over half of them will be won by King Felix. Yes, as a Mariner's fan I expect my team to be absolute feces in the most epic example of fail this year, this team has no hope of competing with AAA teams, much less Major League teams
darkwinterbeast8;4354450 said:If I went with everyone's favorites then it would be just like the ESPN picks where all of their reporters give the Red Sox the title just because they're from Boston.
clashcityrocker10;4355303 said:So... the Mariners are going to break the '62 Mets record of most losses in a season? As a Mets fan, I sure hope not.
SheSaidSheSaid;4355049 said:BITE. YOUR. TONGUE! That's flat-out not possible. Do you really see every freaking hitter (except Ichiro) in the lineup OPS'ing in the .500's again? Every one with BABIP's in the low .200s? EVERY single one? Because that's what it took last year for the 61-101 season.
Your darkened words are a vast, vast overstatement as well. The club is greatly improved over last year (are you telling me you think Erik Bedard and Michael Pineda will suck as much as Ryan Rowland-Smith and Ian Snell did last year?) and last year's team never should have lost 101 games. 85 games, sure, 90, probably, but they were never as bad as 61-101.
King Felix with the opening day CG win tonight. First in club history!
ultimatespidey81;4355349 said:that's why they're the favorite lol. hell this team could be from seattle and it would be the favorite
darkwinterbeast8;4355603 said:Last Year's team had Cliff Lee on the pitching staff. Plus as a Mariners fan I've come to expect Bedard to be on the IR for the rest of the season by Memorial day
darkwinterbeast8;4355603 said:Will eat crow when they get to 41 wins
darkwinterbeast8;4355606 said:As a Mariners fan I sure hope not either but the fact is that Felix Hernandez and Ichiro are the only major League caliber players on the Mariners at the moment.
ultimatespidey81;4355664 said:the mariners will win at least 55 games.
SheSaidSheSaid;4355722 said:Okay, you've got to just be being intentionally morose for the sake of being morose or something. Because that's so ridiculously not anywhere close to being true. And yet you seem to believe it.
SheSaidSheSaid;4355724 said:I'd say add 10 to that as a worst-case scenario. I'm not saying they'll win the West - frankly, anything above the cellar would be a surprise - but to believe what I'm reading in this thread Felix will again win in the low teens and the team will never win any other game. I mean, come on. That's just ridiculous.
darkwinterbeast8;4355889 said:Majority of the Roster filled with older players that wouldn't be on MLB Rosters if not for the M's, Fringe Talent that will teater between the Majors and AAA, Brittle players that keep getting hurt, and Basket Cases like Milton Bradley (who should be locked up in a mental hospital or at the very least in counciling every day of the week for his issues). And there is the role player that gets over paid and does very little to justify the contact (Figgins would be exhibit A).
