5 of 6

AL West Standings:
1: Astros 94-68
2: Mariners 89-73
3: Rangers 84-78
4: Angels 79-83
5: A’s 72-90
I feel like the acquisitions of Aoki and Lind will greatly improve two of Seattle’s major problems from last year in guys getting on base, and driving runners home.
Pair those acquisitions with a solid first full season from Marte, and a bounce-back year from Cano, and the offence should be able to finally help the Mariners make the playoffs for the first time since 2001.
Next: Brian is skeptical, but hopeful at the same time
