Welcome to the first episode of They Might Be Mariners, Lookout Landing’s prospects-focused podcast, to be recorded during a minor league baseball season. We’re flabbergasted yet again at the time surpassed since affiliate clubs have stepped on the field, and eagerly cover all four levels in a weekly review. We briefly discuss Jarred Kelenic, the man of the next 48 hours, and what his call-up means to the Seattle Mariners and how he may compare to other call-ups of yesteryear. We each award our Gold, Silver, and Bronze performances, non-Jarred edition, including most of the Everett AquaSox rotation, a pint-sized power UTIL, and somehow Kate picked seven people. We also take a swing at your questions, including timelines for other top prospects, matching the 2021 AquaSox against the 2019 Travelers, and culinary pairings for each top prospect.
