My oh My! Top play of the week for the Seattle Mariners

Why I still believe in the Mariners Justin Smoak

Don’t Give Up! As the offseason rumors rage on, it is no surprise that the Mariners are being talked about in nearly every offensive trade transaction out there. When looking where to place a power bat, it is only natural to be looking at first base. This makes sense as the position is the easiest to man defensively so the big, slow and strong guys like can still play ball. Prince...
