All is right with the world.. today anyway

M's Win, M's (finally) Win...

Franklin goes 8 sharp inning, Ibanez drives in a pair, and Guardado works a fairly easy ninth. The Mariners climb (!?!?) up to 2-7, and avoid a second 3-game sweep at the hands of the Angels. Of course, I didn't watch, so the FILF stands at 100%.

Other M's news:

Seattle is featured in Jayson Stark's latest article on ESPN.com. It's a feature on MLB slow starts, and whether they are Illusion or Reality. The M's come out okay, as the consensus is the team is to talented to keep scuffling. There are a couple caveats from scouts though:

Nevertheless, one scout who has followed them says, "It's trouble in Emerald City. They're getting old in a hurry."

"The big problem is, they've lost Mike Cameron," said one scout. "And that's a huge problem at home (big outfield). There must have been five balls that dropped in the first three games that Cameron catches. Hard as Randy Winn tries, he's not Mike Cameron. And go around the field, and their defense is significantly weaker."

Those sounds awfully familar don't they?

The other teams?
Philadelphia: Illusion
Arizona: Reality
Toronto: Illusion

I'd agree with that, though my Phillies as NL champs pick is looking rather shaky so far.
