I can't think of anyone lately saying, no i won't go to Seattle? Maybe 12 years ago, yes. Safeco is a hitters nightmare, but it didn't stop Ichiro, Sexson, Beltre, Ibanez, Everett, and Jojima signing here. And Edgar said if he was ever traded, he would retire. Sexson last year in Safeco, posted his career high in ops+. Tejada would be here had Baltimore not outbid Seattle. As far as hispanics, i disagree. While they may not be hispanics, Garcia, Edgar, Arod, Cora, Ibanez, Sasaki, Hasagawa, Guardado, Beltre are not of American ancestry. Brandnew, i'm glad you mentioned Clement. Nice looking power hitting C. Things change quickly in bb. Seattle went from 91 wins to 116. They went from 93 wins to 63. They had to get Washburn or Millwood. Other then the length, i don't have a problem with it. I will be surprised if they don't hit .500. It's not a playoff team, but it's not a bad team either.
