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:

Roll on, April.

Mariners, 85-77

Yesterday marked the end of regular season baseball, and the Seattle Mariners went 85-77, marking the biggest improvement from last year in the major leagues. After losing 101 games last year, let’s just say that expectations were fairly low. But rookie manager Don Wakamatsu did a phenomenal job in leading us back to respectability.

Even though we didn’t make it into the postseason, it was a good year. Thanks to the folks at Lookout Landing for keeping me company through 162 games.

Here’s to Felix for the Cy Young. And for the playoffs, I’ll be rooting for my (other) hometown Dodgers.
