Seattle reporter calls Texas Rangers a sinking ship


The Seattle Mariners signed Robinson Cano and are looking to gain ground in the American League West division. They also have extra eyes on the Texas Rangers as Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson spends his offseason at the Rangers’ Spring Training camp.

Tom Yazwinski of Seattle’s Q13 Fox was discussing the Rangers while waiting for his live on-air report started without his knowledge. It caught him just in time to hear him call the Rangers a “sinking ship.” It comes one day after very critical comments were released from former Rangers second baseman Ian Kinsler.

The rest of the news team back in the studio thought the whole incident was pretty funny and poked fun at it. One reporter handled it very politically saying he hopes so and hopefully the Mariners can right their ship. Nevertheless the Rangers are in a crucial year and they need to make another playoff run to prove they aren’t a sinking ship.

    As a long suffering Mariners fan, even though the team name and woeful performance should make this area an expert on “sinking ships”, I don’t see it with the Rangers. They still have talent, they’re still spending good money, I’d be surprised if the M’s overtook the Rangers in the standings, even if Iwakuma and Walker hadn’t dealt with injuries this spring.
