The Seattle Mariners just completed a homestand that started terribly and ended masterfully. After trading Ichiro Suzuki to the New York Yankees and dropping two of three to the Yanks, but followed that up by sweeping the Kansas City Royals and Toronto Blue Jays.

As the M's head east to take on the Yankees in the Bronx and see how Ichiro is settling in, they will be riding a seven-game winning streak. They will be facing a different caliber of opposition, of course, but they certainly have to be feeling good about their chances at this point.
