Yeah, it's a rough time for the Seattle and Washington sports scene. The Sonics are gone, UW is terrible, WSU is horrible (seriously, running up the score on Portland State is not an accomplishment) and then there are the Mariners.
Yes, the Mariners. Who many picked to challenge the Anahiem Angles for American West title. Instead, they became the first team in league history to loose 100 games with a $100 million payroll.
