The MLB playoffs begin today and the Mariners start their run for the championship against the Cleveland Indians in less than a half hour. Although I’m certainly excited for the playoffs to begin I’m also a little sad that my dad isn’t around to experience it. He was a big Mariners fan and back in April during the last weeks of his life, one of his few remaining pleasures was watching these guys on TV. And they certainly didn’t let him down as they barrelled out of Spring Training. With a 16-4 record in the days before he died this Mariners team served notice that this was the start of something special. Now 100 wins later the regular season is over, but the memories remain. Thank you Seattle Mariners.
