‘Tis the season for giving thanks. It is time once again for the annual holiday where we eat too much, tolerate distant family we only see once or twice a year and fall asleep watching football.

But it’s also a time to reflect on the year that was as a sports fan. So we here at Sodo Mojo will give you a list of 5 things Seattle Mariners fans can be thankful for in 2013.

5- A promising future

While we as fans sit here and anxiously wait for the Mariners to make some moves in free agency to improve the club for 2014, we can rest assured that the future will be indeed bright – even if it’s still a few years out.

The youth is being served already, with Mike Zunino, Nick Franklin, Dustin Ackley, Abraham Almonte and Kyle Seager all showing M’s fans some hope in 2013.

The Mariners have several young prospects coming up through the ranks, including two players ranked in the Top-25 on Taijuan Walker (#4) and Danny Hultzen (#23).

Add to that, the promising end of 2013 shown by SP James Paxton, plus the promising year that Mariners Minor League Player of the Year Chris Taylor put together, things are indeed looking bright.
