These Mariners players have not been listening to enough Nancy Sinatra.

Norichika Aoki has had 36 at-bats so far in a Seattle Mariners uniform... and he has walked in exactly zero of them. Although Aoki has gotten his share of hits to start the season (he's currently batting .278), his lack of walks has severely limited his offensive production. His wRC+ currently sits at a less than stellar 74. In this young season, only Kevin Pillar, Alcides Escobar, Matt Kemp, and Justin Turner have more PA without drawing a walk. This seems like a pretty (un)healthy streak that Aoki has going. However, a 36-AB walkless streak doesn't even crack the top-500 in M's history! Which bring us to today's Sporcle: Can you name the Mariners hitters who are responsible for the longest walkless streaks in franchise history? There have been 48 streaks that have surpassed 90 at-bats. I suspect that some of these players will spring to mind immediately, but a lot of them will not. This could be pretty tough. Good luck!
