Looking forward to the Mariners’ visit to Baltimore in May and the Dodgers’ visit to DC in September; and I’m definitely going to try to catch the Ms when I head to Seattle in July.

Yessssss …

Felix Hernandez = Mariner

… for five more years! 🙂

Here are Felix and Seattle GM Jack Zduriencik (otherwise known as GMZ or “The GM with the Golden Touch”) at a press conference yesterday:

Red Sox fans, prepare to be astounded.
