As Mariners fans, we’ve endured a lot over the past 20 years. I am grateful to get the chance to listen to Ryan Divish’s sarcastic and “rosy“ tones that are largely unfiltered and reflect much of what the fan base believes. Thank you Ryan for not letting a public-facing/speaking position restrict your feelings about the M’s and thank you to Meg and Ben for continuing to bring Ryan back on for the world to listen to!
