Hot Seat Watch

Who would have thought that one week in to the season, the hot seat is already firing up. I have not heard it anywhere yet, but I'm starting it. While the Mariners might have pulled out a miraculous comeback in front of nobody, I'm lighting the burner. Hitting coach Chris Chambliss, Come on down you're on my hot seat.

The game started out with the smallest crowd EVER at Safeco(13,056) and Felix on the mound. Last night was not his night. He got smacked around pretty good. Prima donna Chone Figgins took himself out after 3 innings with a bruised thumb. The M's got a run in the 7th, five runs in the 8th, and 2 to win in the 9th. Yes, they did get 11 hits last night and got a win. Unfortunately, in most games they have not come up with the CLUTCH HITS! This team is batting a collective .225, good enough for 24th in the league. Let's see if they can do something tonight for the new phenom Michael Pineda.

  1. Is it just me or do the Mariners players take themselves out of games more often than other teams?
