Hello, friends! Welcome back to FanPost Friday. Can you believe it’s nearly the end of this frigid April here in the Northwest? Can you believe we’ve still got 5 to 6 months of Mariners baseball left to go? Feels good, right?

Since we’ve come to the end of the first month of the season, we’re going to pick favorites today. But first, let’s summarize last week’s temp-check polls!

  • Y’all are famously not worried about Jesse Winker, a very smart and cLLassic LL non-reactionary stance. Bravo!
  • The people are not particularly worried about Julio Rodríguez’s bat, but are fairly worried about Jarred Kelenic’s bat.
  • In a very close battle, Tom Murphy beat out Cal Raleigh for the best catching option for the team, which I can only assume contributed to Cal’s reassignment to Tacoma yesterday.
  • Now this poll right here, oh BABY the raw, uncut optimism here. I love it!
  • In a landslide, Logan Gilbert wins most impressive starter while Paul Sewald remains a fan favorite out of the bullpen.
  • This is fascinating and I’m not really sure what to think about it, other than the nickname needs some more time to catch on, I guess.
  • And finally, in an admittedly biased poll, “Louie, Louie” must be reinstated post-haste.
Your move, Kevin Martinez

Okay, back to the matter at hand. It’s time to pick your Mariner of the Month for April 2022. Please use any metric you desire. We’re lumping the whole roster together, position players and pitchers. If you’re going strictly by the numbers, the top choices are pretty clear depending on your preference, but I also invite you to choose anyone who exceeded your expectations or was perhaps an unsung hero of the month. Make your choice in the poll below and then tell us your reasoning in the comments below.
