I’m not sure how much you watch Fox Sports Northwest, but the first Mariners’ ticket ad of 2008 has been repeating on loop, airing about every other commercial break.

Whoo 16 games!
Here are a couple crucial statistics about the ad:
Yuniesky Betancourt is one of only three Mariners mentioned by name in the ad, along with J.J. and Ichiro. He’s the only one mentioned by last name, for what it’s worth.
Yuniesky is shown four times in the ad (though once he’s mostly obscured by J.J.’s left leg).
Conclusion: the Mariners are counting on Yuniesky Betancourt to sell some tickets this season.

In other news: Mariners’ pitchers and catchers reported today. This isn’t really news, though. The real news is that Yuniesky and all the position players will have their first full-squad workout in one week.
