Our All-Time Top 50 Seattle Mariners are now up

Yes, we know that this is taking a while!

As many of you know, we here at are slowly generating the 50 of each major North American sports team.  We have a new one to unveil today, that of the Seattle Mariners. 

Entering the American League as an expansion team in 1977, the Seattle Mariners have had a lot of great players, but despite that, they are the only team to have never appeared in the World Series.  

As for all of our top 50 players in baseball we look at the following: 

1.  Advanced Statistics.

2.  Traditional statistics and how they finished in the American League.

3.  Playoff accomplishments.

4.  Their overall impact on the team and other intangibles not reflected in a stat sheet.

Remember, this is ONLY based on what a player does on that particular team and not what he accomplished elsewhere and also note that we have placed an increased importance on the first two categories.

This list is updated up until the end of the 2019 Season.

The complete list can be found here, but as always we announce our top five in this article.  They are:

1. Ken Griffey Jr.

2. Edgar Martinez

3. Ichiro Suzuki 

4. Felix Hernandez

5. Randy Johnson

We will continue our adjustments on our existing lists and will continue developing our new lists.  

Look for our All-Time Top 50 Tampa Bay Rays coming next!

As always we thank you for your support.

4. Felix Hernandez

From Venezuela, Felix Hernandez signed with the Seattle Mariners as an Amateur Free Agent in 2002, with the hopes of following the footsteps of his idol, Freddy Garcia. 

In 2005, at age 19, Hernandez made his debut and would start 12 Games.  From there, Hernandez would begin his slow ascent to one of the best hurlers in the Game.  He would break out in 2009, with a league-leading 19 Wins, his first All-Star Game, and a second place finish in Cy Young voting.
