Ho ho ho, who’s on the Seattle Mariners naughty or nice lists?
We’re finally here, it is Christmas. It has been one heck of a year for everybody, and the MLB was not the same as always. Lucky for us baseball fans, the season happened and we were able to watch and cheer on the Seattle Mariners.
The Mariners finished third in the AL West with a 27-33 record under Scott Servais. The team managed to make a late push for the postseason and nearly got in. But, let’s be honest, making the playoffs was not an expectation in 2020.
This season was a test, a pilot, or however else you want to describe it. 2020 was an assessment of some of the young Mariners talent and I think we learned a lot.
Our starting rotation is starting to turn a corner. The Seattle Mariners have the athleticism to play scrappy baseball and run the bases effectively. The team’s defense will not be an issue in the future.
Better yet, we saw all of those positives while missing some key players due to injury, and our best prospects still waiting to be called up.
2020 may just seem like another “Mariners” year of losing, but it was not. I saw a lot of great things which makes me actually excited about the future. I know Seattle Mariners fans are growing tired of waiting, but this time I think it is different.
Now, bringing back to the holiday spirit, let’s find out which players made Santa’s naughty and nice list this Christmas.
