Which Seattle Mariners Breakout With Big Seasons In 2015?

Seager Busted Out In 2014, so who’s Next? I have already said on numerous occasions that it’s very unrealistic of Seattle Mariners fans to expect their shiny new DH, Nelson Cruz, to step in and hit 40 homers in 2015.  It’s NOT going to happen, and you are fooling yourself if you believe it will.  What will happen for Cruz is 25 homers or so — maybe 30 — and a batting...

Repeatedly and reflexively, the names of Brad Miller and Chris Taylor appeared in reports about the Seattle Mariners’ offseason trade activity.
