The Mariners have been a disappointment to many fans in the Northwest this season, and rightfully so. This team came into the year with high expectations, and they haven’t lived up to those expectations what so ever. Seattle sits at 41-48 and find themselves 7.5 games back in the AL West and 7 games back in the Wild Card.

I am a college student at the University of Missouri, and grades mean everything. So I thought it would be fun for me to reverse the roles a little bit, and to hand out the grades myself for once. So here are my first half grades for every M’s starter, as well as grades for the starting rotation, bullpen, and bench. So without further adieu, Professor Dickens’s grades are in, and they aren’t too nice.
