Welcome to another week of the Mariners Market, where someone is going to have to convince me that the Mariners’ aren’t trying to make this incredibly difficult on me. Once a week I give a brief overview on how the Mariners have played, as well as who’s stock has been rising, and who’s has been falling. Also in this post I discuss a move that I would like to see happen, either between the Mariners and one of their affiliates, or between the Mariners and another organization.
The Mariners frustrating season continues, and at this point I really don’t know what else to say. I feel like every week I come back and sound like a broken record, as this teams’ hitting as let them down once again. The M’s had a golden chance to sweep the division leading Houston Astros, but couldn’t finish it off as they fell 6-2 in the series finale on Sunday. Overall, the Mariners finish the past week at 4-3. While you would’ve liked for the M’s to finish this week with a sweep of the Astros’, with the way this season has gone, you certainly can’t complain about a 4-3 week.
That being said, the Mariners Market is all about individual performances, and in this slideshow I will look into who’s been hot for the Mariners in the past week, and who has not.
