There will be baseball played this month. Actual Seattle Mariners baseball. Congrats guys, we did it. While we are still 6 weeks away from the opening series in Japan, February will be a busy month for us.
In addition to our usual content covering Mariners rumors, trades, free agent signings, and team news, we will also be unveiling a few new series to keep an eye on. First and foremost, we will be unveiling our Top 30 Mariners prospects throughout this month.
Last season, we produced a Top 20 Mariners Prospect list. So in addition to a nearly brand new Top 10, we are adding 10 names to our list to give you guys the best look at the farm system we can provide. For the first time in a long time, the farm system is actually exciting, so we are matching that level with more minor league content.
In addition to the expanded prospect ranks, we will also be bringing back our “My Guy” series. In case you are new to the site or need a refresher, the My Guy series is a simple concept. Each of the writers on staff will pick one Mariner to claim as his “guy”.
What this means is the writer is metaphorically staking his claim on a said players production in 2019. Typically, we choose a player who we think will outperform expectations. This is a fun experiment and is actually the source of some good ribbing when you epically fail like I did last year. Let’s just say I may be to blame for Kyle Seager‘s epic flop last year.
In addition, later this month, we will start a weekly series looking at 1 potential amateur player for the Mariners to consider selecting with the 20th pick of the draft. This series is still looking for a name if you guys have any ideas.
That is what we have on tap for the site this February. Congratulations on surviving the off-season. We are a mere 3 weeks from baseball being on our televisions and radio and regardless of how you feel about the team, it is an exciting time.
