Seattle Mariners Favorite Player Sweet-16 Vote Results
We are winding down in our Mariners favorite player of all-time March Madness-style bracket. Yesterday we saw the completion of the Sweet Sixteen and the taking down of the last remaining cinderella, 12th-seeded, Willie Bloomquist.
March Madness has been very exciting so far, but even more exciting has been our Mariners favorite player of all-time bracket.
Over the weekend we saw the three rounds of thrilling matchups with some of the greatest and most popular M’s players ever. The votes have been in your hands and after a few fairly surprising upsets in the first two rounds, it’s all chalk in the Elite-8.
In the Sweet Sixteen, we saw a 5th-seed (Brett Boone) and a 12th-seed (Willie Bloomquist) as “unlikely” contenders in their late-round matchups.

Now that we are into the Elite-8, we see only four one-seeds and four two-seeds going up against one another meaning that only the top-seeded players remain in the quarterfinals.
As to be expected, each one of the 2nd versus 3rd-seeded matches were closer than the 1st against 4th-seeds.
2nd-seeded, Lou Piniella, narrowly beat out 3rd-seeded, Kyle Seager, for a spot in the Elite-8 with a 57%-43% win. 2nd-seeded, Randy Johnson, faced a slightly closer battle against former teammate, Jamie Moyer, in a 56%-44% contest.
In other matchups, top-seeded, Ken Griffey Jr., had the easiest victory, beating 5th-seeded, Brett Boone 95%-5%.
Here is how all of the matchups ended up including how many votes were tallied in the eight contests.
These results mean that the Elite-8 matches are as follows: top-seeded, Griffey Jr., versus 2nd-seeded, Buhner, one-seeded, Edgar Martinez, versus two-seeded, Ichiro, one-seeded, King Felix versus two-seeded, Randy Johnson and one-seed, Dave Niehaus, versus two-seed, Lou Piniella.
