A long overdue episode to discuss all the nothing that has happened
WELCOME, to a stealthy, surprise episode of Dome and Bedlam. When you never record, NO ONE EXPECTS YOU, and that is our recording philosophy.
David, Nathan, and Scott talk about the Mariners’ offseason, and the total absence of same. We also complain about the media luncheon, bad optics, and consider the possibility that Shohei Ohtani BROKE JERRY DIPOTO’S BRAIN.
But then, in a surprise twist, Scott shares a theory on Jerry Dipoto, and we spend the second half of the show talking ourselves into some good things about the team, and disappear down a beer talk and Tim Salmon minor league track record rabbit hole. In all, we consider this to absolutely be another one of our episodes.
Thanks as always for listening. We truly do appreciate you.

Grab a drink and let’s go exploring
Fresh off HELL WEEK for the Mariners, and all Seattle sports, Nathan, David, and Scott take a dive into the mire and try to scrounge something worth salvaging out of the Mariners’ offseason.
0:00-40:21 – DID YOU KNOW, that Shohei Ohtani signed with the Angels? He did, he signed with the Angels, and it was very bad. This leads to a discussion on the wisdom of building a plan designed around acquiring a specific talent through free agency, Jerry Dipoto’s future in Seattle, and the man behind the man behind the man behind the throne.
41:00-1:00:05 Let’s chat about where we go from, but also get sidetracked because man, this still really sucks. We talk about the Mariners best offseason being one that will feel……..like……a total failure to the average fan. That’s right you guys, the only thing that may save the Mariners is them failing to execute their plan. So, no worries then right? RIGHT?!

0:00-42:45 WE ARE BACK YES THANK YOU. After three months hiatus Scott, Nathan, and David return to recap the 2017 Mariners; a frustrating, inconsistent, mediocre team hey wait they told me this season was going off-type. Hey! Hey we got the wrong script here! Damn writers.
After a whelming-ass look back the boys get DARK. It’s a look forward, bemoaning the franchise’s inability or refusal to commit to the steps necessary to build a consistently great team, and a bleak forecast for 2018, Shohei Ohtani, or no. DO NOT LISTEN SOBER. Or do. We certainly didn’t record it sober but you do you, pal.

(This week’s episode brought to you by Noah Dupont and his generous donation in goods amounting to a worth of $16.50.)
Nathan gets the duct tape removed, to the detriment of the show. The guys talk about the excitement of overcoming long odds, the outfield depth, and more. Scott and David try to name Mariner pitchers.
Twitter takes are read, and mostly ignored, but appreciated. We answer a few questions, and bid you adieu.

Ten games into the season the Mariners, yes, your Seattle Mariners, are 2-8. In these trying, unfamiliar times, Scott, David, and Nathan are here to comfort you, primarily by telling you everything we hate about this baseball team.
Come quickly, Great One. Go biz.

0:00-50:00 BASEBALL, it is here. Listen as we tell you exactly what will happen in the 2017 Mariners season. Gasp in shock and horror at which of us chooses the pessimist role. Rewind and listen carefully as Scott attempts to join us from inside a tin can, FROM THE FUTURE. It’s all here. You may skip the season now.
50:00-1:08:00 Jonah Keri, famed Canadian, Internet Man, and The Real Young Pope joins us for a national perspective on the team.
1:08:00-1:35:00 Twitter Q&A. Nathan yells at a cow, we still can’t understand Scott, David makes a pun, and we thus have to banish him for life.
