As exciting as the World Series has been, I'll be excited when it's over so the offseason can begin—usually the most exciting time of the year for Mariners fans.
General Manager Jack Zduriencik has a lot to think about this winter. Who will manage the team? What combination of young payers and veterans will there be? What's Franklin Gutierrez's future? Should he talk Jamie Moyer into a comeback?
All kidding aside, 2014 will be a critical season in terms of Jack Z's future with the organization. His tenure with Seattle has been a bad mixture of unfortunate free agent signings, ill-advised trades, and most of all, losing.
Here are some realistic moves the Mariners should make this offseason.
