(1090 The Fan) — Despite being eight games over .500 and currently holding the fifth-best record in the American League, last night’s loss clearly shows Seattle still needs at least one other bat in the lineup.
Here are some troubling Mariners stats that also support the argument:
- 27th in hits (735)
- 23rd in SLG (.376)
- 28th in OPS (.675)
- 27th in HRs vs. LHP (15)
- 26th in RBI at home (149)
Should the Mariners make a deal to improve their offensive production, which player (who is likely trade bait) do you see immediately helping Seattle?
