So as the Seattle Mariners have been on a their recent hot streak this season the big debate has been, do the Mariners have a chance to contend or should they look to continue to build for the future. I have to start off by telling you that I am one of those guys who doesn’t get all giddy about my team being .500.I don’t even get all excited about my team making the playoffs and then quickly exiting. Call me crazy but I want to see my team win championships. As a lifelong Seattle sports fan for 33 years I have no experience of what that’s like. I have seen the Sonics in the NBA Finals and the Seahawks in the Super Bowl, only to be heart broken when they lost. The Mariner’s management have over the years showed a fondness for the phrase “being competitive”. You hear the fans now saying it daily on sports radio.”I just want to see the M’s be competitive”. It drives me nuts! It reminds me of what parents tell tee ball players “just go out and have fun and it doesn’t matter if you win or not, just as long as you try hard”. That works for little kids but it shouldn’t be acceptable in Professional Sports. When Jackie Z was hired two years ago I could not have been happier because he understood that you can waste a lot of years and money just “being competitive”. To be a championship caliber organization you had to willing to be in hard work and do it the right way. He talked about building from the ground floor up. Restocking the minor leagues nike huarache sort og hvid , developing young talent and spending free agent money on the right guys. Doing this most often means the team is gonna be terrible for a couple years , but you are better off once you get through the process. When the plan works you find yourself with young exceptional talent on your major league roster that is prepared to battle for championships for many years. The minor leagues are stocked with guys who can add to your club in the future. You also have the finances and minor league talent to add missing pieces in the middle of seasons via trades.
