A New Day. A New Way. (A New Blog.)

Hi.  Todd Cook here.  So, I’m starting a blog.  And this is it.  I don’t really plan to tell anyone about this.  So we’ll see if anyone ever finds out about it.  For the time being, I’ll be talking to myself.

So, I’m watching Erik Bedard battle through the bottom of the fifth inning of the Mariners second game of the year.  The M’s are still winning 4-3, but Bedard is starting to struggle after cruising in the first four innings.  Oh, good.  Bedard finished off another Twin on a swinging strike out.

With all of the excitement of Griff’s return to the Mariners and his record-tying 8th opening day homerun last night, I thought I would start this blog by sharing a little bit about my ideas of where the Mariners of the past and present rank in my mind.  So, without further adieu, my all-time Mariners line-up / team:
