No team has been busier this winter than the Seattle Mariners. Literally, half of the players on the M’s 40-man roster have changed since the offseason began in November. Overall, Jerry Dipoto and his staff have seemingly done an effective job of filling holes and upgrading the club.

Change is a part of life in baseball, but few teams have more question marks heading into the 2016 season than the Seattle Mariners. Fans have been debating for weeks what the starting rotation should be, who should be the closer and what the M’s lineup should look like next season.
