Today's Fun Fact

Over their 34-year history, spanning 204,534 trips to the plate, Mariner hitters have amassed a batting line of .263/.330/.407.

Using the same methodology as the other day, and limiting the comparison sample to historical Mariners, we find that the player most comparable to the all-time Mariners is David Bell, who - while in Seattle - batted .262/.320/.412.

That seems about right. Yesterday, Jon Bois asked me who is the most Mariner player. I submitted Rich Amaral. After looking at this, though, I might have to change my mind. So much about David Bell just fits.

The Seattle Mariners: 34 years of David Bell.
