Someone asked me how my blog and newspaper column came to be titled "Bleachers Brew". It's like this, it's an amalgam of sorts of two things: The bleachers area in the stadium/arena where I used to sit when I would watch baseball, football, and basketball games and Miles Davis' great jazz album Bitches Brew. That's how it got culled together. I originally planned on calling it "The View from the Big Chair" that is a nod to Tears For Fear's second album, Songs from the Big Chair. So there.

Seattle Hope

This picture was on the final homestand of the Seattle Mariners two years ago (2008) when local girl and US Women's Team goalkeeper Hope Solo threw the ceremonial opening pitch.

And yes, there is hope for the Mariners as they made some great off-season moves by acquiring pitcher Cliff Lee from the Philadelphia Phillies, outfielder Milton Bradley from the Chicago Cubs, and Chone Figgins from the Los Angeles Angels who will play third base.

Seattle finished third in the Western Division of the American League at 85-77; 12 games behind Division champ the Angels.
