    SEATTLE - The first-place Seattle Mariners won't have eight-time All-Star Ichiro Suzuki back for their American League home opener today, but they'll have lots of momentum when they face the defending AL West champion Los Angeles Angels. More >>

The Seattle Mariners shot for their fifth consecutive win Tuesday in their season home opener against the Anaheim Angels.  Just days before, they swept the Oakland Athletics in three games.  It appears the Ms, a HUGE disappointment last season, are making an incredible comeback.

Erik Bedard gave up just three hits against Oakland over the weekend.  He struck out seven.  Sunday's shutout against the As was the second for the Mariners in four games, with Jarrod Washburn and Brandon Morrow allowing just five hits in Thursday's game in Minnesota.

Add Ken Griffey, Jr's return to Seattle into the mix, and you can see why fans are ecstatic so far this season.

Does the Ms fantastic performance in these first few days of the season mean much?  Do the wins up until now mean the Mariners are headed to postseason glory?  Or are we hoping too much - setting ourselves up for disappointment?
