Seattle Sports at Night is now on Twitter! @Nightwatch710. The Mariners are winning and hitting the ball out of the park like crazy. Is this for real and should we try to put the cynicism of "spring stats are meaningless" aside and praise the team's success? Colin, Tom and Matt take a look at what the lineup needs to do to have a shot at contending.
Tom and Matt firmly believe that the combination of Raul Ibanez, Jason Bay and Franklin Gutierrez will come up with a total of 30 homeruns. Colin doesn't think it will happen and isn't even sure Bay will make the team. Tom breaks down the numbers... awkwardly.
The guys take ideas from texters as to what the loser(s) of the bet should have to do. Hairstyle of the winner's choice seems to be the clubhouse leader. Also baseball writer Jonah Keri was on with Brock and Salk earlier and he says the spring numbers don't mean anything because the environment and parks are so completely different, it's almost a different sport.
