        if the mariners still had a combination of either griffey johnson or rodriguez they probably would have beaten the yankees and won the world series

            When your organization says that the goal is not to win a World Series! That’s when you know run away as a fan base! That guy should’ve been fired right there on the spot because he basically destroyed the Seattle Mariners.. Can you imagine that headline in the New York post with the New York Yankees! Oh yeah we hope to win the World Series. That’s where you play as a player to win the World Series !! You just don’t want to participate and hope. Man I feel bad for the Seattle Mariners fans...

              That quote about the main goal of the team is not to win a world series, if that quote was said in New York, Boston, or LA, that executive would have been roasted alive by journalists and talk show hosts.

                It's gotta be the curse of Ted Bundy. During his trials, he would wear a Seattle Mariners shirt. He also claimed to be a SuperSonics fan.

                      As a fan of football (soccer), I'm all too familiar with "business over team success" owners ruining organizations. Really a shame.

                        Bring back the Seattle Pilots, rebuild Sick Stadium get Mario Mendoza back to become player/ manager of the team. At least you'll be better entertained with baseball. What team goes 116-46 that's seventy games above .500 , then doesn't make it to the World Series??? I know the New York Yankees were 103-51 in 1954 then lost the Pennant race to the Indians whom were 111-43..

                                Why? Who WANTS to see this. Baseball is a roulette game. You get up and try again. Yesterday has no bearing on today's results.

                                  Nothing to be ashamed of. They ran into a Yankees juggernaut that came within 2 outs of winning 5 out of 6 World Series (had won 4 of the previous 5) and was easily the best team since MLB started expanding in 1961.

                                      Olerud was hit in the head with a baseball and suffered a fractured skull,so he wore for protection.

                                            As a fizzling Mariners fan, I can honestly say that they give big contracts to those that know how to make excuses for why they are going to lose even more games.the Al West has real baseball teams in it and the Mariners ain't it. I am 60 years old, those in Seattle that run the show could really Care less about the fan. At least I am a Steelers fan and have something to look forward to per year. Hey we haven't cut Trey Griffey yet. Those rich jerks that own the team will continue to make Bank on some of the dumbest fan base in the pro team sports. I have been a Mariners fan since 1991 , I hate the thought of jumping ship. A coddled bunch is not a hungry bunch, they may keep dipota and servais around for the duration of their, rebuild YEARS.

                                                                              • Andy  Hobaugh

This is obviously something very near and dear to you tho. I wasn't looking for a debate on this subject. I was nearly stating what I thought was an obvious observation. Both Seattle and Oakland have had MAJOR major league ball player on there roster. I in no mea t to get caught up in this ridiculous back and forth with someone I do t even care to know, let alone get into a debate about 2 ball franchises I don't even like. Not only have you wasted my time, but you have wasted yours and everybody that took time to read this. I'm do t w oth this conversation now and prolly will never comment on another you tube vid again. Good day sir.

                                                                                Ichiro to me is the only HOF within roster of playoff Ms teams and he couldn't take team further alone.
