Friday the 13th not so unlucky for me

It never has been, and today is a perfect example of why…

First of all, we signed Jack Wilson to a 2-year contract. It may be for a little over $8M, from what I hear in the above link, but the terms have not been disclosed. This fills me full of little-girl-on-Christmas-morning glee. Seriously. I am flat-out stoked about this, provided that we didn’t give him a billion dollars to stick around. I’ll set aside reaction for that later, if necessary.

Secondly, I got a lot of stuff in the mail today; first off, my Mariners Army shirt arrived.  I love custom t-shirts, and make quite a few of them through a company called Zazzle.com. At the risk of running a commercial, it’s a very reasonably-priced place, and they do one-run shirts, as opposed to having to order them in bulk, like a lot of printing places do. They also do high-quality work, so there’s that. If you’ve ever seen anyone running around SafeCo in a black shirt that says “the offseason sucks”, that’d be me. I have several baseball-themed shirts from there, I love them dearly.

The other item of interest that came in the mail today, after ages of waiting to have the money to afford it (thank you, birthday fairies!), was my Detroit RedWings jersey. Because I’m mainly a bandwagoner for hockey, I didn’t want a player’s name on it, so I chose the name of Tom’s band instead. Now I can rock WingMasters in style!

wtf 027wtf 026I am eagerly looking forward to the rest of my day; so far, big bad Friday the 13th has suited me just fine.

    I have a really good feeling about this coming year…..

    Jack Z is taking care of business at a nice steady pace.

    I cant wait to watch the highlight reel of defensive plays each week.

    Been a long time since we had a defensive specialist at SS……It was a joy to watch Beltre at 3B (gonna miss him)….but SS gets gets twice as many balls hit their way….. So Ja Wilson is gonna get to WOW us twice as many times per game…..

    I wonder who we sign/tradeFor/extend next.

    My Prediction is Felix gets extended End of January/February.

    Y’know, hold that thought, and let’s see if it happens.
    A lot of folks around ye olde internet are saying that we now have the best middle fielders in baseball. While I believe it’s likely pretty damn good, I’m really hoping that Gutierrez doesn’t have any sort of regression thing, since everyone is saying that his 2009 season is not something he can maintain.

    It will definitely be interesting next year, that is for sure…
