2004 Mariner Commercials are Here 

The new commercials for 2004 are available for viewing. The new tagline for the season is "Mariners baseball. Get all of it." On the commercials, they squeeze in a "Hey Now" before the "Get all of it." It sounds good with the Hey Now, but I don't have the foggiest what it means. I prefer "Mariners baseball. Kicking ass and taking names."

All in all, I was a little disappointed in them, at least in comparison to past years. But it was good to see some of the players a little more up close.

Little ball fans will like the results of Raul Ibanez rediscovering the clubhouse latte. And Ichiro fans will like how he delivers his Autograph. And seeing Ryan Franklin and Shigetosi Hasegawa lost in Translation is cute.

Edgar's commercial with Dan Wilson and John Olerud is great, just cuz its Edgar. Love that guy. Our three oldest hitters getting together to put "The Clapper" on the Safeco lights is a nice little bit of irony.

The best commercial, by far, is Bret Boone getting to second base after an error on the opposing second baseman. The Boone does his best to console him. That one's a classic and well worth the trip to the website.
