Seattle's Slew of Former L.A. Favorites

name L.A. team Seattle team
Adrian Beltre Dodgers (1998-2004) Mariners (2005-2009)
Chone Figgins Angels (2002-2009) Mariners (2010-?)
Pete Carroll USC (2001-2009) Seahawks (2010-?)

Okay, not quite a slew, but enough to call a trend. Or the start of a trend. A trendling, if you will. All I know is that if Matt Kemp or Clayton Kershaw ends up in Seattle, I'm loading the car up with pitchforks and torches and taking a road trip up north.

On the other hand, we do have some nice readers up there.

As a Seattle resident, I thank you Sax. +25.

I also have a very tenuous relationship to the Mariners front office. If Matt- or Clayton- to Seattle rumors start, I'll kill them. The rumors, not the front office. At least as far as law enforcement is concerned.

I do enjoy Safeco Field, it's a pretty nice park.

You should see it from the owners box. With a beer paid for by the owner in one hand and another beer paid for by the owner in the other hand.

Though it is severely lacking in the Dodger Dog, mountain view and Vin Scully on the radio departments.
