10. John Olerud
Despite spending just over four seasons with Seattle Mariners, Olerud became an instant fan-favorite with his friendly personality and even-keel mentality on the field. He hit over .300 twice for the M’s while taking home three gold gloves and appearing in the 2001 all-star game that featured eight Mariners.
9. Dan Wilson
The trusty backstop gets on the list by virtue of his 12-year tenure with the Mariners. Wilson’s best season offensively came in 1996 when he hit .285 with 18 home runs and 83 RBI and made his sole all-star game appearance. Wilson was brilliant behind the plate, posting a career fielding percentage of .995, the sixth-best in major league history.
8. Jay Buhner
“Bone” came to Seattle in 1988 from the Yankees and never left. The brawny right-fielder crushed 40 home runs in three consecutive seasons in the mid-90s and was in the thick of the monstrous lineup that featured a young Alex Rodriguez and Ken Griffey Jr. in his prime.

Pitching has been great. Runs are being scored. And defensive gems have been key.
Three things you look for in a winning baseball...
It’s All Coming Together, FINALLY
To the naked eye, the Seattle Mariners are the epitome of mediocrity. They are sitting at an 18-20 record, which is only good enough for third in the AL West. The question is, though, do they deserve praise and high hopes?
After a slow start – and a few ass kickings by the little league squad that is the Astros – they have finally...
Aboard the Mariners' team flight toward his former home, Jason Bay tuned in to watch the New York Mets.
''I cheer for all those guys,'' he said.
No signs or sounds of rancor from the Seattle outfielder in the Yankee Stadium dugout Tuesday night. Instead, he was looking ahead, preparing for his first game in New York since three disappointing seasons with the...
Joe Saunders won his ninth straight decision at Safeco Field and Kendrys Morales hit a three-run homer, leading the Seattle Mariners over the Oakland Athletics 6-1 Sunday.
Saunders (3-4) allowed one run and five hits in 6 1-3 innings with six strikeouts and three walks. He is 3-0 with a 0.94 ERA in four home starts this year, improving to 9-0 with a 1.72 ERA in 13 career appearances...

Happy Mother’s day indeed, the northwest has reason to celebrate. All three Cascadian MLS teams won, the Mariners...
Unbeatable in recent outings, Felix Hernandez will try to stay hot by continuing his recent success against the New York Yankees. The Seattle Mariners ace, though, might have a considerable challenge in this upcoming game at Yankee Stadium.
That's because the Yankees' CC Sabathia will also be seeking his ninth win in as many starts against Seattle in Tuesday night's...
