We are really starting to get into the season. It's not the dog days of summer yet, but with 45+ games under the Mariners belt, trends are starting to become realities. You can excuse the first few weeks of the season, or any bad stretch by a player. It happens. When that stretch lengthens out to a month or more, it starts to become a bigger issue.

There's also the perception of things. Whether or not they are earned, a player can be looked at by a fan base and have a bad (awful, horrendous, or insanely troubling) stretch stick with them. That's where we are today, as I wanted to look at 3 Mariners that the fans have already lost their patience with.

The team is 22-24, they can't find any offense, and near-elite pitching is the only thing keeping this team holding on so far. If not for the staff, we might just be looking at a team with a 15-31 record. That's how bad the offense has been. A big part of the article today is going to be about that offense, so let's dive right in and see who the first entry is for Mariners that fans have had enough of already.
