One thing spring usually brings Seattle Mariners fans is a slate of clever television ads with a handful of players, coaches, managers and even GMs involved - and the 2011 spots are out.
You can view them online at your leisure or await them during the televised games, your choice.
They're fun, with Ichiro asked to hit a bucket full of non-baseball items - including a pitched Tic-Tac - and manager Eric Wedge forced to deal with an over-competitive Felix Hernandez. Jack Zduriencik has a message for fans in one ad. Franklin Gutierrez tries his hand at teaching in another.
No Moose this time. But a little humor goes a long way after a terrible season. Enjoy 'em.
