2013: Rotation Situation

The Mariners figure to make big changes in 2013 as they attempt to fit themselves into the playoff picture. The 2012 team has a few of the right pieces to carry into next season, but a few tweaks will still be necessary in order to really transform this team into a playoff contender. The organization will undoubtedly make more than a few moves that come straight out of the twilight zone, as fans have become more than accustomed to since the Zduriencik administration has taken over.

Regardless of the moves that will or won’t be made, it’s important to be aware of the fans climate going into the offseason. Fans opinions don’t usually factor into the front office decision making process, however that doesn’t mean there isn’t an interest in the fans opinion. There is no team, no money, no ballpark without the fans. So understanding that your opinion matters, but isn’t critical to the future of the Seattle Mariners organization, here at Sodo Mojo, we have a few polls for you rito peruse.

Dependent on the statistics you value, there aren’t many positions that don’t require an upgrade. Some of those upgrade will come within, and the other will obviously have to come from outside the organization. So without further ado…


All things considered, how would you shape out the starting rotation in 2013?

    I’d rather start Hultzen in AAA Tacoma again next year. He’s been struggling since his promotion from Jackson, and I’d like to allow him to get accustomed to pitching in the Northwest against quality talent without the pressure of the big leagues. He’d also get a chance to get familiar with Zunino, and I think we’d get an extra year of control if we called him up after June. Just my thoughts.

    As for the rotation, I’d start with:


    We’d have a wide selection of young AAA/AA prospects (Paxton, Hultzen, Mitchell, Noesi, Carraway, Mauer, Fernandez and potentially Walker) to choose from if any of our starters fail to produce or get injured.
