The Seattle Mariners ended the 2013 season in unspectacular fashion, but is anyone surprised at this point? To suggest that this has been a disappointing year for the Seattle fans is probably an understatement. It isn’t like this team was expected to contend this season, but there was at least some hope that this franchise would move in the right direction.
In 2013, the Mariners won four fewer games than they did in 2012. A sign of progress? Not exactly.
Now that the season is over for the Mariners, it is time to hand out grades for each position group. Here is the grading system:
A: All-Star caliber
B: Very good performance, optimism for the future
C: Strictly average
D: Barely worth being promoted to 2014
F: Utter failure
