As the All-Star Break approaches, the rumor monster will awaken from its slumber. As the monster frantically spews it’s rumors across the baseball world, several Mariners are sure to be caught in the fanatical chaos.
Brendan Ryan has been a bit of an enigma this season. Last year we saw an organization frustrated with Ryan’s helpless bat, trade him to the Seattle Mariners for a bag of balls. The Mariners saw this bat awaken, and reaped the benefits of a defensive star with an average bat. 2012 has been a different story for Ryan, who has struggled to find an sort of consistency at the plate. The defense has still remained elite, but the bat has many fans fatigued with Ryan.
