Uncustomed Heroes of 2017: Mariners
Like usual this stretch of the 2010s, the Mariners were SOOOOO CLOSE.
They had a winning formula by adding Jean Segura to the infield, and emphasizing rookies like Ben Gamel and Mitch Haniger, but they just got damn well unlucky, losing most of their rotation over the course of the season, and relying too heavily on home run guys like Robinson Cano and Nelson Cruz.
Even King Felix, the once-beloved starter, had his second down, injury-plagued season in a row. Ms fans are hoping this isn't a normal thing for Hernandez, as he's still one of the most legendary pitchers in Seattle history.
Coming Tomorrow- They're currently being gutted, but let's talk about them!
