Notable Seattle Mariners, According to Fangraphs WAR

There are some surprises here — particularly those who have significantly underachieved — but for the most part, these numbers reflect the figurative death cell that has been the Mariners 2010 season so far.


Franklin Gutierrez: 1.7

Cliff Lee: 1.5

Ichiro Suzuki: 1.3

Doug Fister: 1.1

Jason Vargas: 0.9

Felix Hernandez: 0.6

Michael Saunders: 0.2

Jack Wilson: -0.2

Casey Kotchman: -0.3

Chone Figgins: -0.4

Ryan Rowland-Smith: -0.7

Ken Griffey, Jr: -0.8


At a certain point, you hope Jack Zduriencik will do something.  Our second-best pitcher, according to WAR, only induces a swinging strike 3.5% of the time.  Our second-worst hitter is a massively under-performing Chone Figgins.  Our position player with the third-highest WAR currently has a .239 wOBA.  And, last but not least, Griffey is just as bad as you thought.  In fact, Griffey is so bad that Josh Bard would make for a fairly significant improvement at DH.  Josh Bard.  Yeah.

I’m damn tired of waiting.  Make something happen before our time runs out, Z.
