Wheeeeeee, it’s Friday and the Mariners are back in town for a nine game homestand. The weather is not scorching like it is everywhere else in the country, but it’s marginally summer-like in the Northwest and that is all right with me. For this week’s FanPost Friday, let’s talk favorites!
Prompt: Who is your favorite 2018 Seattle Mariners player?
We all have our perennial favorites, and feel free to write about them here, but what I’m aiming at here is the player that you watch most closely on the team this season. You study their at-bats. You chart their pitches. You get really stoked when they jog in from the bullpen. Maybe it’s a new addition from the offseason or midseason trades, or maybe it’s a player who’s been around but has taken major steps forward this season.
And since we’ve talked about team chemistry and intangibles a lot this season, maybe it’s the player’s personality that draws you to them. Whatever it is, they are YOUR guy. Write a FanPost and tell us why. We’ll frontpage the best submissions over the weekend.
Have fun at the ballpark this weekend and beyond, and go freakin’ Mariners!
