best laid plans . . .

Where did the first half go?

Well, at least I cannot be accused of being a fair-weather fan (not that the weather hasn’t been more than fair this summer) . . .

During the way too long stretch of lean years, I posted religiously (it seemed baseball WAS my religion) . . .

  • season after season
  • series after series
  • game after game
  • at-bat by at-bat
  • pitch by pitch

And now – FINALLY – they are enjoying some success despite some injuries (as usual) and a significant suspension (totally UNusual) but, my recent move necessitates a 4am wake-up call to start an extremely long daily commute that makes it nearly impossible to even watch entire games, let alone sit up and blog. And, attending in-person requires a lot of preparation and accommodation (the ferry only runs so late). I say this not to elicit pity – I would not trade my new home (or view) for anything – but, merely as a reason for my prolonged absence. Add to that planning (hosting) our daughter’s wedding this coming September . . . just not a lot of time for my Mariners 😦

But, hey – they seem to be faring pretty darned OK without me 😉

Sending FOUR well-deserving players to the All-Star Game (Edwin, Mitch, Nellie and Jean) and re-signing BOTH their GM AND their Skipper to long-term deals. They may have finally found the consistent leadership they’ve been seeking. Couple that with young players and vets alike that are contributing night-in and night-out and it’s made for a pretty special first half.

The Skip

Just know that they are always in my heart and on my mind – even if I’m not putting pen to paper (or keystrokes to the Internet)

Best,
