Hail To The Failures*

Just a brief baseball note to “congratulate” the 2008 Seattle Mariners and Pittsburgh Pirates for being the first AL and NL team, respectively, to be mathematically eliminated from playoff contention. Yet another season of futility for the Pirates. What else is new? And for the Mariners...well, let’s just say the season ended as no surprise.

The future is dim for both ballclubs. Good; that’ll make handicapping 2009 easier by two teams.

*To the UM fans out there: don’t read anything into this headline. I’m only picking on the Bucs and M’s, not the Wolverines^.

^Good game vs. Utah the other day, by the way.
