It was a glorious day in Seattle today. The sun was shinning, then it started snowing and then in the bottom of the sixth, the M's got it into gear and started playing some ball. The M's kicked off 2008 with a win!! Texas just fell apart. For some reason the M's have something against doing well offensively before the last third of the game. A couple of seasons ago, things wouldn't kick into gear until 2 outs in the 8th. We have really good pitching this year, we actually have had good pitching the last few years, but it doesn't do any good if you can't get your guys home. Oh well, a win is a win. I'm hoping for a season full of "small ball". When the M's won 116 in 2001 that is how they did it.
I'm sure Joji and I will go to a few games this year. However, I think I will wait for the threat of snow to pass. The funny thing was that while the snow was coming down in Seattle, just 25 miles south Tacoma had beautiful sunny skies. Global warming, go figure.
