As much as we wished the Mariners gifted us with high-end free agents like Blake Snell, Mariner fans are left with their stockings in their hands. Mitch Garver is a Seattle Mariner. The Mariners have themselves a power-hitting DH to slot in the lineup. Hopefully, Garver can provide a much-needed power boost after the Eugenio Suarez trade. The World Series winner provides veteran leadership and playoff experience to a still young Mariners lineup.
Let's focus on holiday cheer as we close out 2023. This is a great time to restock on Mariners gear and get ready for the new season. Share all the new gear you've received and show off your fandom. From new hats, jerseys, and all Mariners related gear, Mariners fans should have plenty of holiday gifts to share in our Sodo Mojo community.
To break the ice and be a little personal, I was gifted a signed Alex Rodriguez bat from his time with the Mariners. My grandfather is battling Parkinson's and Alzheimer's disease. The bat was gifted to him as he was a longtime season ticket holder of the Mariners. This bat has been an icon in my family as we are Mariners fans and I'm honored to be able to display it in my collection of Mariners memorabilia. On the more cheerful side, I also received a signed rookie-year Julio Rodriguez bat, a hat, and a Mariners t-shirt.
The Mariners are in a new era. With an elite pitching staff, and an elite centerfielder reminiscent of Hall of Famer Ken Griffey Jr, the boys in Emerald are in good hands. Julio Rodriguez is the face of the team. Mariner fans from coast to coast recognize the young star. Let's share all our Mariners memorabilia from this holiday season and hope for some Sodo Mojo Magic in 2024.
