I am now working on the Colorado Rockies prospect list. The next team in line is the Seattle Mariners, to be followed the Washington Nationals and a frantic round of book editing.
Use this thread to discuss the Mariners organization. Some potential items of discussion include, but are not limited to:
***Will General Manager Jack Zduriencik still have a job this time next year? And should he have that job in your opinion, which is a different question.
***Related to the topic above, how many games does this team win this year?
***The Mariners pick sixth in the 2014 MLB Draft. Who is your ideal target based on what you know today? Personally I'd love to see Touki Toussaint in the same pitching rotation with Felix Hernandez and Taijuan Walker, if he lasts that long in the draft.
***Taijuan Walker is officially on a rehab assignment. Once he is fully up to speed, is there any point in additional minor league innings or is he completely ready for the rotation in your view.
***I don't think James Paxton is a fluke. Do you? Not that he'll keep his ERA at 2.25 all season, but I think he made genuine progress last year and will live up to his potential.
***As always, feel free to discuss sleepers or anything else you want to talk about that is Marineresque.
