Two New Mariners Excite Fans

While Seattle sports fans can generally agree that the Seattle Seahawks are in a state of disarray, there can be an argument made that the fortunes of the also struggling Seattle Mariners may be changing. In the past couple weeks, the Mariners have acquired Angel Infielder Chone Figgins and Phillies pitcher Cliff Lee. Figgins had been a "Mariner killer" while playing for LA. Lee was Cy Young award winner in 2008 while playing in Cleveland. Together with red hot 2009 Cy Young runner up Felix Hernandez, the Ms could be a team to be reckoned with. Of course, Mariner fans have been burned before and there is no doubt that the Angels and Rangers are not going to sit by idly. The Yankees are champs again and Boston is not going away. Still, for the first time in years, the fans are talking about the baseball team in December and odds are, they are not through yet.
