Here are some more possible reunions for Mariners to orchestrate

The Mariners, ... seem to have hit on a winning formula. On their last homestand, they brought back members of the 116-game-winning 2001 M’s team for a stirring ceremony, and tonight at Safeco Field they’ll be honoring the legacy of the Seattle SuperSonics.
 
When you’ve got a team on the field fresh off a 17-game losing streak and once again buried in the basement, you need to be creative to put butts in the seats…. So in that spirit, I’ve decided to helpfully suggest a few more reunions the Mariners could stage.
 
Mariner left-fielders. There have been more than 200 of them over the years as the Mariners strive, mostly futilely, to get this problem area fixed. What a stirring moment it would be to have them all line up along the third-base line—and down the left-field line, and along the warning track, and maybe back down the right-field line. Highlight: Eric Byrnes taking a ceremonial lap around the field on his beach-cruiser bicycle.

Last night's Sonics celebration turned out to be particularly fortuitous. The Rays took an 8-0 lead in the 2nd, and the M's neglected to hit. The TV guy had one ex-Sonic after another come into the booth for a half-inning interview, passing the time and providing an interesting diversion as the game went forward with no more scoring on either side.

Did Gary Payton at least spit out his gum?
