The time has come to decide who you will vote for as your favorite Mariners player of all-time. The two Final Four matchups came to a close yesterday, and your votes made the contests very interesting. Below are the results of your voting.
As many would have expected, the Final Four of our vote for your favorite Mariners player of all-time consisted of all one-seeds who have been great in their own right.
Felix Hernandez has become the greatest Mariners pitcher of all-time with his team-leading _ wins and _ strikeouts, Dave Niehaus defined what it meant to be an announcer/fan with his countless calls and undeniably distinct voice, Randy Johnson was the man who paved the way for excellent M’s pitching in the 90’s with his blazing heat and impeccable command, and Edgar Martinez who is still considered one of the greatest designated hitters (if not the greatest DH) of all-time.

How could fans choose when they saw Edgar facing Johnson and King Felix going up against Dave Niehaus? Well, you had to decide, and you did.
In an epic matchup between 1-seed, Niehaus, and 1-seed, Hernandez you chose the voice over the arm in one of the closest battles we’ve seen all tournament.
Half way through the vote, the two were tied with 50% of your vote. In the last few hours, Niehaus scrounged a couple of votes to put him ahead for good. He would win by a slim 8% margin.
On the opposite side of the bracket, we saw one-seeded, Griffey Jr. have his way with the greatest DH in the game. Despite his opponent, one-seeded, Martinez, having a street named after him near Safeco Field while Griffey Jr. does not, Jr. won by the sizable margin of 62%-38%.
That leaves two competitors left: Niehaus vs. Griffey Jr.
