Seattle Mariners Blog:
It's all a little too late for these guys I'm afraid for 2007. They gave us a good run, made things interesting for a while, but Bavasi's dumb moves eventually caught up to him. Whether it's whom he chooses for our SP rotation or through trades, this guy is a cancer. I'm hoping that Ninento wises up, clears out the front office of Chuckie Armstrong and Howard Lincoln AND Bill Bavasi and starts new. McLaren? Too early to tell still, but a sub .500% winning percentage as manager sure doesn't look too hot. The few moves that Bavasi made this last off-season he got lucky with, especially Guillen and Vidro. The rest? Mistake, after mistake, after mistake. Onto the Seahawks, our one shining star in Seattle...
Keys to the game this weekend for Seattle to beat Arizona:
1. Similar to last week, control the ball and don't make turnovers. Arizona is going to come out guns a blarin' so we need to be prepared to weather the storm.
2. Get the ball to Deon: He is a fricking stud, get him on a few reverses, screens, whatever, get the guy the damn ball! (No reference to Keyshawn of course :))
3. Run, run, run. AZ has a paper mache defense and can be exploited early and often. Go for the throat early, get up, and don't look back.
4. Blitz the HELL out of Leinhart. He is young and their offensive line is weak. Blitz, blitz, and more blitz and disguise them well.
Stay focused Hawks and we should be 2-0.
