One doesn't need credibility to land an internet gig, apparently, a fact that's once again proven by Sports Illustrated.com this week.
In their online breakdown of the American League West and what all four teams are doing this off-season, Cliff Corcoran has wonderful things to say about the future for the Angels, Rangers and Athletics.
The Mariners? Not so much. Start with this quote:
"This is not a good team, it's not getting better, and no amount of offseason tinkering is going to make it a good team."
Under the category of what the Mariners are building toward, Corcoran writes: 'Nothing.' And Seattle's off-season targets? 'None.'
He also suggests the team stand pat, since 'they have nothing to gain by doing otherwise.'
If you want to read the rest, here it is. If you need a large dose of silly pessimism, this will do.
