Hello and welcome to the final FanPost Friday of 2023. The Mariners didn’t quite live up the expectations created in 2022, but there were still some exciting moments along the way. Jarred Kelenic hit a ball to the moon at Wrigley. Teoscar Hernández walked off his former team. Matt Brash made a lot of batters look very silly. Julio Rodríguez got 17 hits in four games(!!!). Wild stuff.
