Im not a baseball guy, but friends tell me the "Pilots" (I like that name better than Mariners) gave away all their good players this off season....  Nearly everyone Ive talked to are very close to giving up on the Mariners!

The Pilots!!!  I still remember going to games the one and only year they were in town....It was about the only reason my Dad would come down to the south end (where I live now)from Ballard in those days. I always feel a tinge of sadness when I pass the old home plate at the Lowe’s down on Rainier.

I still have my Seattle Pilots "Don Mincher" autographed Louisville slugger bat.   They gave away full sized bats in those days.   Imagine if they did that today.   eek.gif

It's interesting to see that Hendu actually had better stats with the Mariners than in his 111 games with Boston.  His best statistical seasons were later with Oakland.

IIRC, there was some tension between him and the M's in his playing days, probably resulting from his flair while playing, which was viewed dimly in those days but seems more accepted now.  I was glad to see him back with the broadcast team in recent years.  And yes, he always seemed to have a smile and a very positive attitude.

That may be true. But how many postseasons did he appear in with the Mariners and how many clutch HRs did he hit in said occurrences with them?  He had two clutch HRs with the Sox in ‘86 when it mattered most.  Individual stats don’t mean much if you’re golfing in October.

Agree with you on the big smile. And man, could he get some loft under himself when he jumped.
