Several weeks ago, over on our Facebook page (You have “liked” our page, haven’t you?), I posed the question “Who is your all-time, favorite Mariner?” I received a small response, but I figured we’d run a series of posts on fan-favorite Mariners over the years. If you’d like to see your favorite player featured, head over there and put in your own two-cents.
So far, we’ve had the following responses:
- Ken Griffey Jr.
- Harold Reynolds
- Charles Gipson
- Randy “The Big Unit” Johnson
- Jay Buehner
- Joey Cora
- Edgar Martinez
- Alvin Davis
I’m surprised King Felix hasn’t made it on the list, and I’m sure that some of you have your own personal favorite players (Ichiro? Dan Wilson? A-Rod? Colborne? Moyer?) who you’d like to see profiled. So, don’t hesitate – let us know who you think needs recognition as a team member. In addition to running a series on fan favorite player profiles, I’ll also run a poll once all nominations are in – and you can vote on your all-time favorite Mariner. You can nominate your favorite player on our Facebook page
or in the comments section of this post.
I think once this is done, we’ll have to vote on least-favorite Mariner of all time. (Hold your votes on that, for now, if you can!)
