Seattle Mariners Details
After the Seattle Pilots relocated to Milwaukee after just one season, Major League Baseball returned to Seattle when the Mariners joined the American League in 1977. The Mariners have struggled for much of their history. They have had just 13 winning seasons since 1977 and have only made four appearances in the playoffs. They have not played in a World Series.
Despite their hapless reputation, the Mariners are also known for having the most successful season in the modern era. In 2001, the Mariners won 116 games. They set the single-season record for most wins by an American League team and tied the 1906 Chicago Cubs for the best-ever record in Major League Baseball. The Mariners’ 2001 season ended in the ALCS, where they lost to the Yankees in five games. The team has not returned to the playoffs since its 116-win season.
The most famous Mariner is probably Ken Griffey Jr. Griffey played for Seattle from 1989 to 1999 and then returned at the end of his career from 2009-2010. During his time as a Mariner, Griffey was elite both at the plate and in the field. He won a Gold Glove award for his play in center field in every year of the 1990s and led the AL in home runs in four of his seasons in Seattle. Griffey scored the winning run in the deciding game of the Mariners’ first playoff series in 1995 after Edgar Martinez (likely the second-most famous Mariner) hit him home in the 11th inning. The Mariners eliminated the Yankees on the play.
In 2017, the Mariners finished third in the AL West and seven games behind the Minnesota Twins for the second Wild Card spot. Nelson Cruz led the team with 39 home runs. James Paxton led the team’s pitchers with 12 wins and 156 strikeouts. The Mariners added Dee Gordon in an offseason trade with the Marlins. In the 2017 season, Gordon stole more bases than anyone in baseball. The Mariners hope his addition will help them end their long playoff drought in 2018.
