This core is the foundation of the Mariners future, and while the season may not be cause for excitement, watching our young core grow is plenty of reason to tune in this season. Lets check in with our future stars to see were they stand thus far into the season.

    I cheer you for not putting Justin Smoak into this. It was very kind of you. Michael Saunders is regressing which makes me concerned as I so want him to be good but perhaps it is not in the cards. Ackley is trending up but wow, I never thought he would strike out so often. Thanks for the work on this, Bryant.
