These guys hit the Mariners, but I can still sleep at night

Tim Anderson: 54-139, .388/.399/.612, 8 2B, 7 HR, 5 SB, 19 RBI, 25 R

Hey, Tim Anderson. Yeah, that one, the one who recently had his option declined by the White Sox that a fair amount of Mariners fans have been hoping comes to the Mariners. It would be good to see just from the fact that he destroys Seattle pitching, hitting nearly .400 in 139 AB. Anderson never walks, but when you have nearly double-digit 2B and HR, who needs walks. He's scored a boatload too, constantly setting the table for the White Sox.

Mike Lamb: 46-123, .374/.432/.553, 13 2B, 3 HR, 23 RBI, 22 R

Lamb stuck around for a while, putting together an 11-year career despite a 92 OPS+ and below average defense. That didn't stop him from putting a hurting on the Mariners. His OPS+ against the Mariners was 163, and they don't have WAR against specific teams, but it wouldn't ne hard to argue that the majority of Lamb's 4.0 career WAR game just against the Mariners.

Lou Pinella: 52-149, .349/.403/.503, 12 2B, 3 HR, 12 RBI, 15 R

Sweet Lou. Wow. I didn't expect that one. I think many a Mariners fan forgets that Pinella was actually a darn good player in his day. He won Rookie of the Year back in 1969, was a career .291 hitter, but a good defender he was not. Didn't matter against the Mariners, as he was able to hit them well whenever they matched up.
