A fashionable pick when spring training began, the Mariners are trending badly at the time things are turning serious. Perhaps this is to be expected, for a variety of reasons. They improved by 24 victories last season, the first for general manager Jack Zduriencik and manager Don Wakamatsu to work together. History says teams that improve that much from one season to the next rarely win more games the next year. Also, the Mariners won 85 games but weren't really an 85-win team.

On Lastings Milledge, New York Mets' 21-year-old outfielder Ability -- He's a five-tool guy. He can legitimately hit and hit for power. He can run and throw and play D. He's an exciting guy, a lot of energy. I don't think he'll hit 40 [home runs], but he is a 20-25 guy. And he's a threat to steal 25 bases, and that's nothing to sneeze at. Attitude -- A guy I trust who knows him well said he's a really good kid, he just gets a little bit lazy practicing, working on his hitting. He is a game player, and when the bell rings, he is there.
