Now let’s talk about the M’s

OK, let's talk Mariners.

A couple of days ago I ran across this piece in the King County Journal from columnist Greg Johns.

I know there will be more of these what-should-the-Mariners-do columns over the next few weeks, and I'll link to them as I see them. This season is over as far as the postseason is concerned, so it's time to start thinking about the future.

And I want to know what you think. I would like to get beyond the typical "fire Mike Hargrove" or "fire that idiot Bavasi" crapola. Yes, we all know those changes need to be made – the franchise needs more proactive leaders in the front office and the field – Steal a base? Sacrifice? Hit-and-Run? No, we'll wait for the three-run dinger in one of the most-pitcher friendly parks in the American League.

But what else?
