Enough is enough: Let's boycott Mariners

Question: What's the difference between a corpse and the Seattle Mariners? Answer: A corpse can hit better and has more hope of getting to the World Series.

Having watched five innings of the Astros/Mariners game, I sent my letter of resignation to SeattleMariners.com.

I have been a ravenous fan of the Mariners, but now know that the Mariners have no hope unless they get decent ownership.

I encourage all Mariners fans to send resignation letters to the Mariners and stick to it until the team is sold. This means no watching Mariners games, no purchasing Mariners gear, no buying tickets.

Mariners ownership must learn that their incompetence will only result in financial ruin.

Be vocal about this boycott.
