Frustration sets in for many reasons. Perhaps you lost at bingo this weekend or your dog refuses to realize the difference between carpet and grass.
Why don't dogs ever go on the tile?
Likewise, why doesn't Chone Figgins hit the ball to the grassy area known as the outfield instead of the rough dirt area two feet in front of him?
Figgins has become the dog you can't train. He was a cute puppy in the window, doing all sorts of neat tricks in Anaheim. Getting him seemed like a wise choice at the time, but once he got home it was nothing but problems.
Aside from pitching, because Figgins isn't a pitcher, he's been lousy at everything. Hitting, fielding and base-running. He's got the third lowest average and lowest OPS among qualified batters in the game. He's swiped eight bags but has been caught six.
Argh! I'm frustrated. Are you frustrated?
Here's a list of Mariners at each position that have frustrated us since the turn of the century.
