Mariners season goes “up in Smoak”

First LeBron. Now Lee.

Thankfully, the supsense of today’s sports transaction was surprising rather than scripted. Cliff Lee is traded within the division to the Texas Rangers for a young up and comer and 3 minor leaguers.

No matter what the Mariners do, the talent they trade for (Lee), sign (Richie Sexson) or draft (ARod, Griffey) cannot bring Seattle a World Series title. Is the 206 as bad as Cleveland.  Just a note, the last champions in this city have been the women’s team.  The Husky Softball team and the Seattle Storm (btw, the Storm are good this season).
