SodoMojo’s Top-10 Most-Viewed Mariners Stories of 2014

1 of 11

What an exhilarating and eventful year for the Seattle Mariners and Sodo Mojo. In 2014, we saw improvements on all fronts, as the Mariners look to legitimize themselves in the MLB community.

In manager Lloyd McClendon‘s first season, he improved a 71-win team to an 87-win team, playing 162 meaningful games with a young a talented and flawed team. The M’s finished one game short of the playoffs– but with recent offseason additions in slugger Nelson Cruz and trades for outfielders Justin Ruggiano and Seth Smith, the Mariners have already improved on their 2014 roster.

Here at Sodo Mojo, we witnessed an unprecedented rise in committed viewership. Founded in 2009, the site hadn’t reached one million views from 2009-2013 COMBINED. But in just one year, with the hard work and dedication of our entire staff, we reached a million views on December 30th.

As the site grows and strives to bring more thoughtful pieces and more thorough opinions, I would be remiss if I didn’t thank the only people who keep this site going: the readers. Without dedicated readers– more than two-thirds of our readers are repeat visitors– Sodo Mojo wouldn’t exist.

If Sodo Mojo’s rise continues to coincide with Mariners success, we are confident both will perpetuate their upward trend. I am of the belief that McClendon will take the Mariners to the World Series, and I am confident Dan and I are capable or driving this site past all expectations.

But without the readership, without dedicated Mariners fans, we are nothing.

As this 2015 begins, we start by looking back at the top storylines of 2014, where rumors, successes, and failures abounded for the Seattle Mariners.

Looking back at where we were, we can get excited and prepare to jump forward towards 2015 and a Championship.

So what are we waiting for: here is the 2014 Seattle Mariners ‘Year In Review’ Sodo Mojo style:
