This is one of my favorite days of the year. I always pre-order MLB the Show each year, as it's worth it to me to get that extra weekend of playtime in before the actual release. I don't dive straight into the game though. Nope, instead, I go and compile all the rankings of the Seattle Mariners. It's fun to see them all in one place, especially for those who are curious about how a team looks, or for those who didn't pre-order the game.
Officially releasing on March 28th, those who pre-ordered were able to get the game on March 23rd at 9PM West Coast time. Usually, you see a bit of server issues the night of, but for the most part the game runs pretty well out of the gate. It's a bit late this year as I ended up being busy, but I still wanted to give out all the Mariners rankings.
It's time to talk about the Mariners ratings in MLB the Show 23
I'm going to go through two different sets of ratings here. You can call them offline and online. Or, as most people likely would be referring to them, Franchise mode and Diamond Dyansty. A quick refresher for those unfamiliar, Franchise is an offline mode where you take over a team (or fantasy draft), where you can either play the games on your own or go GM style and try and build a champion. This is more of the old school mode, and the one that has been around longer.
The other mode is Diamond Dynasty. In this, you are given cards that represent players. As you progress through a multitude of challenges you can earn cards and stubs to better your team. Player ratings are lower here than they are in Franchise, as there are also legends inserted into the game, alongside special player releases and themes, that hold the top-tier within this mode.
In the same mold as last year, here are the MLB the Show 23 Ratings for the Seattle Mariners. We start, with Franchise Mode.
