Leave it to the hapless Mariners to not even be all that good at losing, snapping a 17-game winless streak today, just six games shy of the major league record. Seattle's normally anemic bats exploded for 17 hits in a 9-2 win over the New York Yankees, the M's first win since July 5.

Fuck. The Mariners had a shot at redeeming their season by proving one of the all-time greatest losing teams in baseball history. Now, they're simply just another bad team.
