All the Mariner fans can suck it. One of the worst organizations in baseball. Can't even win in an easy division.
Remember when the Mariners went 116-46 in 2001, most wins since the 1906 Cubs, and got beat by the Yankees in the ALCS for the second year in a row? They've had 2 above .500 seasons since 2004, 4 since 2001 but haven't made the playoffs. The last couple seasons they have been around the .400 mark and jettisoned Ichiro Suzuki this past season to the Yankees. There hasn't been much to get excited about lately.

True, the Blue Jays haven't made the playoffs since their '93 world series win, but they at least have the powerhouse AL East excuse. AL West only has 4 teams and doesn't include 2 of the traditionally highest payroll teams in baseball.

Blue Jays odds (on Bovada) for winning the 2013 World Series went from 35-1 to 14-1 post trade. Marlins odds went from 40-1 to 100-1.
