In the spirit of idle speculation, and in hopes of a better day:
Walking by Safeco yesterday on my way to the bus tunnel, I looked up at Felix, our lone star, resplendent, appropriately gigantic on his banner. I remembered my discomfort when Raul was so honored some years ago. I tried to remember all the others who had been similarly celebrated, but could not remember anyone other than Ichiro. (To this day, something like his ghost appears to me in the space right behind Felix every time I look up there.)
My question to the community - Who will be next to be elevated to banner status? Anyone we know? How many years hence before any other Mariner player deserves such a distinction?
