So Who Do I Root For Now?...

Another baseball regular season is coming to an end and for the 8th consecutive year my Seattle Mariners will not be in the playoffs which has me wondering, who do I root for now?

Yankees: Bunch of Cheaters, I refuse to root for the Yankees on principle. First of all they have Alex Rodriguez, quite possibly the biggest Douche bag, trying to barter a signature for box seats for his girlfriend Kate Hudson at Safeco Field. If there weren’t any other reasons not to root for the Yankees and there are, that would be it.

Red Sox: How dare they give us Heathcliff Slocumb and call it good!

Angels: They can go to hell for all I care.

Tigers: I remember a time when the Mariners caught up with the Angels and forced a 1game playoff and then beat the crap out of them 9-1. Think about that Detroit when Twins put you in your place!

Twins: What a way to say goodbye to the Metrodome with a championship run. In every baseball video game I’ve played, I hated playing in Minnesota. I can’t wait to never see that marshmallow looking roof ever again. Ka-boom never sounded so sweet!

Phillies: If Brad Lidge had a "mullet" and ran out to Wild Thing I‘d think about it. Oh yeah RAUL IBANEZ, way to Represent!

Cardinals: Everyone seems to forget about the Cards. Every year they fly off the radar, but when you have Albert Pujols, Chris Carpenter and … who was I talking about?

Dodgers: What’s the point?- they’ll be out in the first round in four. I’d feel more comfortable with the Nationals going in to the postseason with 100 losses then with the Dodgers late playoff history.

Rockies: What the Rockies have done this year gives me hope for the Mariners next year. So here’s what I’ll do, I will live through the Rockies postseason success and imagine the possibilities for next year.
