The series comes to a close after taking a look at the good and the bat on both sides of the coin in baseball. The opponents who destroy the Mariners, and the ones that Seattle always seems to succeed against, whether it is at the plate or in the field. We finish off the series by looking at the 10 pitchers who have struggled the most in their careers against Mariners hitters. This is, personally at least, the best one to end on as there is nothing better than imagining an opposing pitcher getting lit up like a Christmas at the Griswold's.

Rick Bauer: 19 G, 23.1 IP, 9.64 ERA, 2.44 WHIP, 1 SV, 43 H, 14 BB, 11 K

Bauer threw for 7 seasons in the 2000s, and was actually decent over the first 4 with a 4.39 ERA. The Mariners just destroyed him though, hitting .398/.457/.630 against him in 108 AB, with only 11 K, and as many XBH as BB (14). It was easily the best any team did with 20+ AB against him and good enough for a 190 OPS+ against Bauer.

Brad Rigby: 7 G (3 GS), 18.2 IP, 13.98 ERA, 2.57 WHIP, 39 H, 9 BB, 6 HR, 11 K

The Mariners didn't face Riby quite as much as Bauer, but they hit him even better. .424/.482/.728 over 92 AB for a 174 OPS+ with 16 XBH. That's like putting a video game on easy while you're learning how to play. Rigby only pitched three seasons, and the Mariners were a big part of ending his career early.

See, I told you this would be fun. Let's keep going with the guys the Mariners had more repeated success against.
