After seeing the Yankees all-time starting team the other day, I thought I would take a stab at an all-time roster for my hometown team—the Seattle Mariners.
Before getting too far into this, I would like to bring up the pertinent question of the slideshow:
Other than the Yankees, is there a better starting nine in baseball history than the Seattle Mariners?
No, really. I'm being serious. I count four surefire Hall of Famers, one borderline HOFer, and one potential future HOFer (Felix Hernandez). Plus, I haven't even talked about our Hall of Fame-caliber manager and Hall of Fame-caliber GM.
Taking it one step further, I would argue that the Seattle Mariners have been the extended home of the best starting pitcher, center fielder, shortstop, right fielder, and designated hitter of the last 25 years.
Too bad miserable, rainy Seattle couldn't convince half these guys to stay.
Let's take a look.
