If the Seattle Mariners keep missing the playoffs, fans may anticipate the yearly release of the new M's commercials more than the start of the season. The best of 2013's lot, which debuted this week, features shortstop Brendan Ryan talking to a buffalo (if you need an explanation as to why that's the best, you clearly didn't read that sentence). The other five ads aren't quite on the same comedic level (including a spot that looks more like an Axe body spray ad), and I'm a little worried that Felix Hernandez might get suspended for doctoring the ball with his new hot sauce (spitballs have been banned since 1920, buddy). Check out all six of the commercials—and bloopers—over at Mariners.com.
For those who want to see the team in action, single-game Mariners tickets go on sale this Saturday, March 16 at 10am at Mariners.com, the Safeco Field box office, and Mariners team stores.
