Bulletin Board Material For You, Indians?

I am not usually one to take a rip at a city, even when that city is a city one of my teams is getting ready to play. Last year, when Joakim Noah of the Bulls denigrated Cleveland's amenities, we had some good-natured fun with him and everyone moved on, but it did give Cavs' fans some added...incentive, shall we say...to root Cleveland into the second round of the NBA playoffs.

Even so, I don't care to down an entire city or region. We are born where we are born, and we do the best we can do to get by.

So this morning I was looking at the recap of last night's Mariners' game on "Lookout Landing", Seattle's baseball site, and this is the gem I found in the body of the text:

There's never a good time to blow a save and lose a game, but there are bad times and worse times, and the Mariners really didn't need this. Not tonight. Not when they were losers of four in a row, trying to avoid a sweep. Had League nailed it down, the M's could've at least closed on a high note and tried to put the skid behind them. Instead, now they all get to take a miserable flight to Cleveland, which was already going to be miserable enough since it's a flight to Cleveland.

Need some incentive, Indians, to snap out of your funk? Use the last sentence of that quote. And no, it did not come from a Mariners' player. But that doesn't mean you can't...oh, I don't know...maybe sweep Seattle and make the author of the column even unhappier?
