    Nightmare on Royal Brougham: The Chone Figgins Story

    It's pretty obvious that I've forgiven Chone Figgins for his sins against the Mariners:

    Yep. I have totally moved on.

    It's weird how Figgins' career just imploded when he went to Seattle.
    By the way, you wrote that the boy has never witnessed a winning Mariners season. So he's 4-year-old or younger? Seattle was 85-77 five years ago.

    The story takes place in 2027.

    And yeah, it's like he was a completely different player as soon as he arrived in Seattle. Just our luck...

    You could replace Chone with several players.. Richie Sexson who would hit 30 hr, but only hit .200..

    There are many ex M's that come here after a stellar season (Adrian Beltre for one) and leave to return to his heyday..

    Good story! Friggin' Kieth!! Don't know who's worse, Keith or Chone...Or Diane. This is so full of hateful characters. Plus that dad drinks too much. That boy is doomed...
