Sporcle Fridays: Career WAR leaders

Otto Greule Jr

Just keep typing Yuni in until it works, promise.

Sorry, not sorry about the picture.

Today's quiz asks you to rank the top 10 pitchers and top 10 hitters in Mariners history, according to WAR. Note that this is Baseball-Reference WAR, which will probably make the pitching side a little bit easier, leaning towards results-based as opposed to the FIP-friendly Fangraphs version of pitching WAR.

With all of these quizzes, this is a good test to see how you've remembered some of the names you've forgotten. I went 10/10 on the hitters, and 8/10 on the pitchers. One of these days I'll be able to recall all of these long-tenured 70s and 80s Mariners and my Sporcle game will be on point.

Good luck, and post your answers below, but beware, spoilers in the comment section. This is the first one in a while that some of you might go 20/20 on, but there's only five minutes allotted.

As a random aside, for those of you who have been asking about the podcast, it returns very soon. In the meantime, you can hear me say "exciting" about six times too many on the official Mariners podcast this morning.
