Mike Moore was the first overall draft pick in 1981, and he would debut with the Seattle Mariners the following season as a regular starter.  He was 7-14 as a rookie, 6-8 in his second season, and 7-17 in his third season, all of which would see him ERAs over 4.70.  While this isn't good, Moore had good stuff, so the Mariners stuck with him, and in 1985, he would win 17 Games against 10 Losses, and dropped his ERA to 3.46.  He finished 10th in Cy Young voting and was sixth in bWAR for Pitchers.  

1986 would see him have a losing record again (11-13), but he faced more batters than anyone else and was eighth in bWAR (4.6).  He continued to lose more Games than he won but struck out a lot of batters along the way.  Moore was in the top ten in Ks three times as a Mariner, and his career-high was in 1988 with 182.  That would be his last year with Seattle, as he signed with Oakland as a Free Agent.

Moore would later have his best seasons with the A's, specifically in 1989, where he was an All-Star and World Series Champion.  Moore may have a losing record with Seattle of 66-96 with 937 Strikeouts, but at one point he with the team he was a reliable pitcher, and on a young team like the Mariners, he earns this spot.
