    Baseball needs a salary cap. More than any league ever did.

            Believe he had suffered some sort of concussion early in his career

            Olerud always wore a helmet at 1st base. I forget why, though.

          At 2:27 why does the first baseman have a helmet

            That was Oleruds decision. From what I remembered he suffered a concussion and did it for his own safety

              As a mariners fan it just seems right that they didn’t win a ring. At least that way they let us down a little easier.

                    Bruh this actually makes me really sad.
                    I’m 17. I was born in 2001. I literally don’t know what it’s like to have my favorite team make the playoffs.

                      The mariners lose because the whole organization has a Japanese mentality, full of humility and slow moving well mannered crap. They need to purge that mentality and get aggressive. Enough of the slow moving crap

                          Seattle along with Oakland have had a regular who's who of rookies, all stars and hall of famers on the roster for the past 30 years and have never got it done.

                            You had one or two years of Griffey Arod and Big Unit which did take NYY out of playoffs. But everything after that wasn't much with exception of maybe Edgar and again obviously Ichiro

                            @Andy Hobaugh but not all of them played together on one roster. Plus its unknown if Griffey would have suffered same injuries as he did as a Red.
                            Ichiro to me is the only HOF within roster of playoff Ms teams and he couldn't take team further alone.

                            Idk about Seattle having that kind of roster. But the As always did something special only to run out of magic come post season

                              "The goal of the Mariners is not to win a World Series..." that alone tells you everything you need to know about their management.

                                I like how a 3.60 ERA is "stellar" for a guy like Sele.

                                I’m a lifelong mariners hopeful. I think they will be the last franchise in pro sports to win a championship.

                                Maybe within 50 years they will win a World Series but it’s not likely
