Welcome to another week of the Mariners Market, where I take a look at some of the past performances by players in the past week, and do a quick little recap on how the past week has gone for the team.

The Mariners frustrating season continues, and yet again the M’s post a 4-3 record on the week. I don’t recall the last time the M’s put together a win streak of any noting, and I feel like the best record the M’s have posted in a week since I have done this is 4-3. The M’s started this week strong, sweeping the mini series with the Padres, and moving to 2-0 on the week. But, the M’s, as they haven’t been able to do all year, couldn’t keep the momentum going and split the four game series with the last place Oakland A’s. Then, the M’s lost a tough one to open the series against the Detroit Tigers, as they fought to grab a 5-3 lead off a three run home run from LoMo, but Iwakuma and the bullpen got beat up the rest of the way in what quickly became an ugly 12-5 loss. While 4-3 isn’t a terrible record for a week, when you take a look at the standings and whom they played this week, it is rather frustrating. The M’s find themselves a full ten games back of the Houston Astros, and six games back in the Wild Card standings, and that is a daunting hill they will have to climb.

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.
