Have you ever wondered what a turkey bowl between current Seattle Mariners players would look like? Probably not. Good thing we have done the research and drafted rosters for this year’s backyard Thanksgiving game.As we all enjoy this year’s obscure thanksgiving that may just be another day at home with your parents, or it’s reading about Mariners news as you prepare for your Zoom call or facetime with family, there is one thing that is on every Mariner’s fans mind: What would the Seattle Mariners turkey bowl rosters look like?
Good thing for all of those wondering Sodo Mojo Co-Experts Ryota Nishino and Willie Keeler have sat down and drafted out the rosters for this year’s backyard turkey bowl. Ryota was able to find profiles for all of the Mariners who played football in high school and also uncovered some hidden athleticism away from the baseball field.
The Mariner’s current roster features a former star high school QB, as well as two wide receivers who broke California records and earned all-section honors. On top of having a former high school linebacker as well, the Mariners have one of the youngest and most athletic rosters in the MLB so there was plenty of talent to choose from when it came to the guys who didn’t play football in high school.
So without further adieu here is the roster that had the first pick, Ryota’s team. Followed by Willie’s team which had the second and third pick in a snake draft system.
