So much for Ichiro's early season slump, huh?

This factoid brought to you from the AP via ESPN.com:

"Seattle became the sixth team to start a season with at least 10 straight road victories. Atlanta was the last club to do it in 1994. The Mariners also tied the '94 Braves for the fifth-longest winning streak on road to open the season. The 1984 Detroit Tigers hold the record with 17 road wins."

And yes, I picked the A's to win the division. D'oh!

That's true, but this is going to be the M's year. They're still winning games without the heart and soul of there team, Edgar Martinez. Not only that their 10 games on the road were all against Western foes...GO BLUE!

Looks like it doesn't matter who is DHing for the Mariners...as long as they're old.

While the M's are playing great, I think it is unfair to compare them to last years team already. We are only 20 or so games into the season, and way too much can happen between now and then. Cleveland has already had a 10 game winning streak and 6 game losing streak. The M's are hot now for sure, but I think they will cool off eventually. Of course I said that all last year too.

I dont know. The year the Mariners had seemed so great i dont know if they could top it. But then again i didn't think they could top some of the years the yankees put together before... i'm looking forward to seeing what happens though.

I'm not sure if they can top it, but right now they are TEARING through their own division. They're winning everything...1-0 games, blowouts, this is a team built on chemistry. Lou is also playing NL ball in the AL and it's been working.
