Mariners Predictions for the 2023 season from the Sodo Mojo Staff!
Mariners Prediction: Justin Churchill
The Seattle Mariners are coming off their best season since 2001. So, naturally, we would expect them to only get better from here on out, and that's exactly what I think will happen. The Mariners will finish their 2023 season as a wildcard team again, as the Houston Astros will still win the division, but, the gap between the two is a lot smaller this time around. The whole season the AL West should be between those two teams. In the last two seasons, they have finished 90-72. I think in 2023 the Mariners finish 94-68 and make the ALCS.
Mariners Prediction: Brandon Willman
I predict the Mariners will go 95-67 and finish second place in the AL West, but first place in the Wild Card standings. Their season will end with a 4-2 series loss in the ALCS to the Yankees. My bold prediction for the season is that the Mariners will have four All-Stars in Julio Rodriguez, Jarred Kelenic, Robbie Ray, and Luis Castillo. Teoscar Hernandez and Ty France will be left off the team, despite having seasons on the cusp of making it.
Mariners Prediction: Christine Navarro
I write this after the game where we saw several Mariners hit home runs in the game against the Cincinnati Reds. Because the Mariners’ new players complement the ones we already have, I have high hopes for this team. Having just watched the World Baseball Classic, however, I know there are many good baseball players out there.
I predict that the Mariners will win 95 games this season, five more than last year (and hoping for additional wins!) I have great confidence in our pitching staff, starters, and relievers. I believe that we have stronger batters and fielders this year with good players to share positions, rest players, and be ready to step in with injuries. I expect us to win more games against the Astros and Athletics and continue to battle it out with the Rangers’ new pitchers and a healthy Mike Trout on the Angels.
