by adding a bit more info: As long as your offense is good enough to get you there and doesn't disappear.
But yeah, last year's offense was strong. At times the question of where it would rank all time came up. It wasn't quite that good in actuality. This year looks significantly upgraded in several places. The Bullpen is night and day now from what it was early last year. As long as things don't go seriously wrong. As long as they're healthy. As long as the starters aren't lemmings, or even all the veterans (since I can't forget 2004, sans Ichiro).
This could be the team and this could be the year. Or rather the first year, but why get ahead of ourselves. I wondered last week how long it'd take before they batted around this spring. 2nd game, or just 12 innings in. They scored in 5 of 11 innings before that. 29 runs in 3 days, but it's only spring training. Pitchers that aren't ready facing the most 25 man hitters I've ever seen this early in spring. But they'll certainly have some stretches like that in the season. I'm probably more excited about this team than any before. It will be fun watching them hit. When we eventually get to.
The Mariners owning Root Sports NW made me think we'd get more games televised. So I've been wrong before.
