red rover The Ichiro Suzukis started in the late eighties/early ninties - it's still a bit unclear who actually started the club. Many believe it was yet another side project belonging to Dave Grohl..... or maybe it was Josh Holmes. Either way both were among the founding players for the Seattle Mariners.
The Mariners managed to win the American League West in 2008 despite losing 101 games. The Mariners didn't "really" lose 101 games because that isn't their "true" talent level.
The Mariners are famous for producing some of Pro League Baseball's brightest players and for letting them all go without even knowing it. "They were around here somewhere..... try behind the sofa." quickly became the club's motto after they had Randy Johnson, Alex Rodriguez, Jay Buhner, Ken Griffey Jr, Brett Boone, Courtney Love and Tiger Woods after they left them alone in the house while they just went down to the shops for some milk. Then they left and became happier. They had a big party but Griffey couldn't come because he was in the hospital, injured again.
As a result, The Mariners were forced to find new talent to fill the club's roster. Club officals went to Japan and began to rebuild. This has recently caused a few problems as the Mariners did not allow any of their players to take part in the World Baseball Classic, forcing Japan to pull out simply because they didn't have enough players to field a team. Norm "The Sheriff" Charlton basically locked up the team and made it his, simply because he's the sheriff and he does what he wants. Someone needs to teach him a lesson, put him in timeout or something
The Mariners way
- Take no note of who you draft or sign
- Buy plane ticket to Japan
- Sign any Asian player you can find, even if it's a kid with a glove, SIGN HIM!!
- Trade away talented non Asian players, for money to buy Asian players
- Win the world series against the Dolphins and celibrate by eating pork rinds and slurm (from Futurama)
- Eat meat
