Opening Day at Safeco

Opening Day, 2010

[Dean Rutz, Seattle Times]

The Seattle Mariners’ home opener is underway, in the 6th inning. Not the best baseball weather, cloudy and cool. When I saw the photo above at the Seattle Times website, I couldn’t resist posting it. As you can see, several Mariners from the good old days were back, with Randy Johnson receiving the honor of throwing out the first pitch. (See Larry Stone’s weekly Sunday column yesterday on Randy in retirement.)

In case you’re not sure, that’s Jay Buhner on the left, Dan Wilson next to him, Randy Johnson towering over his ex-teammates, Edgar Martinez next, and still-active Ken Griffey, Jr. on the right. If you’re in a nostalgic mood, check out this box score of a game featuring all five. Not just any game, of course. This one was kind of important. And we were there: Gail, Gail’s Dad, Joel, me.

    Wok probably wonders how many innings he can get out of the Unit, as well as if Jay and Edgar can hit.

    The M’s current version couldn’t hit water if they fell out of a boat.
