Did anyone really think the Mariners stood a chance?

We knew from the very very beginning that the New York Yankees would beat the Mariners and we're about to tell you exactly why. Please note that this is strictly our opinion and you may feel free to agree or disagree.

What's wrong with the Mariners

What makes the Yankees almost unbeatable

Bottom-line: the Mariners lost because of inexperience and a few players being asked to "carry the team."

Having a fancy and new stadium, which quite frankly, we don't think they ever deserved or earned, doesn't necessarily produce a great team. You can be a winning team in an empty lot if you have the right combination: experience, committment, focus, and and ability to remain calm in jams. Do that and you're already a winner!
