A New Day. A New Way. (A New Blog.)

Hi.  Todd Cook here.  So, I’m starting a blog.  And this is it.  I don’t really plan to tell anyone about this.  So we’ll see if anyone ever finds out about it.  For the time being, I’ll be talking to myself.

So, I’m watching Erik Bedard battle through the bottom of the fifth inning of the Mariners second game of the year.  The M’s are still winning 4-3, but Bedard is starting to struggle after cruising in the first four innings.  Oh, good.  Bedard finished off another Twin on a swinging strike out.

With all of the excitement of Griff’s return to the Mariners and his record-tying 8th opening day homerun last night, I thought I would start this blog by sharing a little bit about my ideas of where the Mariners of the past and present rank in my mind.  So, without further adieu, my all-time Mariners line-up / team:

1.  Ichiro Suzuki (RF)

2. Harold Reynolds (2B)

3. Ken Griffey, Jr. (CF)

4. Edgar Martinez (DH)

DiamondMayhem – FYI, although I’m originally from Seattle, I’ve lived in Reading, PA for the past five years or so and PA for the past 10. Don’t worry, Raul will come through for the Phils. So will Moyer. Tonight is not indication of Moyer’s season. He will be more Moyeresque in the future. And Raul will be solid. You can bank on it!

Jay Buhner and Edgar Martinez were so much fun to watch growing up. Looking forward to reading your blog.

That picture of Griffey is epic!!! Wow, I’m speechless, you should tried to get that signed by him if you ever get to see him in person again, I bet he would get a kick out of it. Love the blog!

LANCE-
I’ve never tried,but woul love to get the picture signed by Griff. I’d also like to get a new one so I could compare how he and I have changed since 1991. Thanks for stopping by.
