My oh My! Top play of the week for the Seattle Mariners

Ken Griffey, Jr. Action

NWSB Insider and Seattle Mariners blogger Clinton Bell tells us to him the best “MY oh MY” play of the week had to be the ceremony of the induction of Ken Griffey Jr. Saturday night against the Milwaukee Brewers. Let’s forget about how bad this team has been lately, and let’s remember the reason we still have a team to root for. Junior, or the Kid, or Griffey. No matter what you call him, he is the epitome of what a ball player should be, and we are all lucky to have been able to call him part of our family.

NWSB Editor and Insider Chris Anderson talks about the disappointing loss the Mariners put together on a night that saw the organization honor one of the greatest ballplayers of all time, Ken Griffey Jr. Downed 10-0 by Milwaukee — who are 51-66 on the year — Seattle tallied just four hits over the course of the game while Iwakuma and the Mariners’ stellar bullpen (particularly Lucas Luetge) surrendered 16. It was a complete embarrassment on a night that should have been filled with spectacular.

Congratulations Junior, and this M’s fan thanks you!
