As one of the youngest franchises in the MLB, the Seattle Mariners have a rather frustrating history marred by futility and disappointment. Established in 1977 as an expansion team, the Mariners have only produced eight winning seasons out of 39 and have only made the playoffs four times. They have the dubious distinction of being one of only two franchises to not play in a World Series (the other being the Washington Nationals).
But their long-suffering fans finally have hope as the Mariners may finally get over the hump and gamblers likewise look to ride the wave of this newfound renaissance.

Seattle Mariners Record
It took the franchise 14 years to record a winning season in 1991 and even longer to make the playoffs in 1995 where they also won their first of three division titles. This was the Mariners’ most memorable season as they came back from an 0-2 series deficit to beat the New York Yankees in the ALDS. In 2001, they set an American League record for wins with 116 but were eliminated in the playoffs by the Yankees.
The Mariners are the youngest team in the AL West and have been bullied like a little brother by the more established franchises. Despite only finishing fourth in 2015, the Mariners still managed a 51.3 percent winning rate against their rivals. They were notably very successful against both first and last place teams, the Texas Rangers and Oakland Athletics, respectively.
What’s plagued the Mariners in the past hasn’t been the team on paper. They have a deep and productive batters led by superstar second baseman, Robinson Cano and solid starting pitchers led by Cy Young winner, Felix Hernandez. New General Manager, Jerry Dipoto has done his best to plug the few holes the Mariners have. This is one of the most stacked lineups in all of baseball.
Like in previous seasons, the Mariners will be expected to contend for a World Series or at least the division crown. And like in previous seasons, the Mariners may disappoint. Despite all the acquisitions, the offense may struggle and the pitchers may fall off. It has happened and it can happen. But all the Mariners need is for at least half their lineup to live up to expectations and they will be fighting for the division title. That’s how good they are.
