Welcome to In Short Order, a weekly look at all the baseball that I like and can't stop obsessing over. We'll mostly live at the edges of the game; at the intersection of the weird, the fun and the esoteric. Oh yeah, and hair.
All aboard, everybody: It's time to jump on the merry Mariners bandwagon. The team is tons of fun and are fighting against the vaunted defending World Series Champion Astros to end a long October drought.
And you should feel no shame for being one of the many who are hitching on to the Mariners train.
