The Seattle Mariners tied the major league record for wins with their 116th Saturday night, beating the Texas Rangers 1-0 behind Bret Boone's first-inning homer.

The Mariners (116-45) can break the record set by the 1906 Chicago Cubs (116-36-3) by winning their final regular season game Sunday against the Rangers. Aaron Sele (15-5) will start against Darren Oliver (11-11).

I think Oakland will have a surprise for them.

Have to agree... But either way Seattle is in trouble, IMO. I think Oakland has too much over a 7 game series and NY seems to have Seattle's number in the playoffs.

No way. Even if it goes 7, Seattle still wins.

They're 116-45, what other reason do you need??

And no, I don't. But I did notice that they won 2 out of 3 from oakland last weekend.

I don't, but I'm rooting for them. And I would bet money on them if anyone would take me up on it.

Oddly enough, I have money on the A's in the ALDS.

See if West will take that bet. I hear he is loaded with cash. Yet he can't afford to buy a new cup of coffee and a new newspaper :)

Remember, the 1906 Cubs lost in the World Series in 6 to our very own southsiders who had only won 93 in the regular season..

regular season records mean absolutely nothing. In my eyes, the mariners are the 3rd best team in the AL, when it comes to this years playoffs.

Winning 116 games ought to count for more than home field advantage in the playoffs. This isn't the NFL where one fumble or blocked kick can make the difference in an entire season.

Everyone's record starts is 0-0 entering the playoffs. "Nice regular season, Seattle. What have you done for me lately?"

Yes, I know the records start over in the playoffs but jeez one of the best seasons in history has to count for something. I guess everyone wants to be able to say I Told You So.

This team is going far.
