Went to Easy Street today in W. Seattle (I guess that may have been obvious which one I went to) and picked up Daphni - Jiaolong. I didn't listen to this album until after picking it up and I gotta say this needs to happen at Sasquatch! So rad.
You can't just rebuild for six years. You'll lose your job. Only the A's and Rays can get away with that. We're seeing it now, with the Blue Jays, Mariners, and Royals making terrible franchise decisions. "I want to save my job."
Yeah it shows in the attendance. Safeco Field is empty most games. Unless there is a team that draws fans to outnumber us.
Sadly this is still better than the Bavasi Era. You are right though. Rebuilding and rebuilding and rebuilding really takes it out of the fan base. Results need to be seen NOW but our division is the best in the league and we are far behind.

I feel like Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds are going to be at Coachella based on their dates. I know that Sasquatch generally doesn't have the same highly booked acts as Sasquatch but I am curious where you guys think that they would be slotted at Coachella. Do you think they would do both festivals?
Spiritualized 2013 Tour Dates: 04/04 –Denver, CO @ Bluebird Theater 04/05 –Salt Lake City, UT @ Urban Lounge 04/06 –Boise, ID @ Knitting Factory 04/08 –Seattle, WA @ Nepchune Theatre 04/09 –Portland, OR @ Wonder Ballroom 04/11 –Santa Cruz, CA @ Cocoanut Grove Historic Ballroom 04/12 –Las Vegas, NV @ House of Blues And then probably Coachella.
This strokes me out because I did not think I was going to get a chance to hear 'I Am What I Am' live after missing them at Sascrotch.
That would be fucking EPIC. I hope hope hope I can afford to go to this one. Do you think it will sell out quick?

Just read that Justin Upton rejected a trade to the M's. It is reported that the trade included Nick Franklin, Charlie Furbush, Stephen Pryor and one of our big three (Walker, Hultzen, Paxton).
This is only from mlbtraderumors.com but:
"the bulk of the risk would've fallen on Mariners GM Jack Zduriencik. As a source opines to FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal (Twitter link), Upton may have "saved Jack Z's job" by rejecting the trade and keeping so much top-flight young talent in Seattle."
