Seattle Mariners: In & Out

With a number of would be first-year players on the clubs active roster, the Seattle Mariners have room to work, potential tricks up their sleeve.

Ladies and Gentleman, I have found the solution to Safeco field park dimensions that I believe will please both the "move the walls in" crowd and the "keep everything the same and boring" crowd. Allow me to introduce the new walls of Safeco field, as seen in the image above or below, since I'm not previewing this. This clearly satisfies both needs - the walls have both been moved in and are in the same place as before. It would also increase excitement in the games and significantly reduce any platoon advantage, maybe. Benefits: - Would make hitting home runs easier, sometimes. - Increases doubles, triples, and inside the park home runs. - Would increase the surface area of the wall for more opportunities to rob a player of a home run. - Would make for some hilarious slapstick comedy. - Would create a significant defensive home park advantage, assuming our players didn't die. Disadvantages: - May cause severe injury to outfielders. Overall, the pros clearly outweigh the cons. Make it happen, Mariners.

Season Preview: Seattle Mariners

Two things come to mind when I think back to the 2011 Mariners. First, the emergence of pitcher Michael Pineda. Second, the offensive woes that kept them far from an AL West contender. Finishing the season with the third worst record in the majors (67-95), the Mariners found themselves in last place, and 29 games out, for the second consecutive season. Offensively, they were last in the majors in batting average (.233), runs (556), on-base percentage (.292), and slugging percentage (.348). Jack Cust had one of the worst seasons as a DH in the history of that position. Even Ichiro Suzuki struggled in 2011, batting a career low .272, and missing the All Star game for the first time in his eleven-year career.

Hi, i'm new here and have been reading through many of the post for the last couple months, and felt I have understood the rules and such well enough to start posting. I was looking at Fanhouse and saw this article, and thought I would post it here. It is the sixth bullet down.
