I think John Olerud could unseat Alvin Davis at first.
But other than that, this is a helluva lineup.



Over 1250 posts and still never a Wiener of the Day!

In the issues of December 16th, 2000 to November 10th, 2001, we may have given the impression that George W. Bush had been legally and duly elected president of the United States. We now understand that this may have been incorrect, and that the election result is still too close to call. The Economist apologizes for any inconvenience.

Yeah I agree with that, John Olerud has been such an underrated player that he should be on SOME team but he's bounced around so much that it's hard to pick which one he should be a part of. And i'm such a Buhner mark. I'd love to see a lineup with Ichiro, A-Rod, Griffey, Martinez, Olerud, Buhner all on the top of their game.

I had a couple of differences-

Harold Reynolds over Joey Cora at 2B, Jim Presley over David Bell at 3B. I went with the guys that had more years in each case.

Ichiro's a RF, but I can see him in LF. Otherwise you'd have to go with Phil Bradley at LF, and while Phil was very good, Ichiro has been better.

Pitchers- I'd probably put Mike Moore there instead of Freddy Garcia. But considering what Garcia did to my fantasy team last year, I might be biased :).

Hey! Don't be disrespecting the Maine boys. Swift was a year or two behind me in high school - he at South Portland and I at Westbrook. Man, didn't we hate him.

Can I put Edgar at third? That would give you this line-up:

1B: Davis (I love Olerud and Tino Martinez, but Davis *has* to go here)
2B: Boone (barely over Reynolds, NOT Joey Cora)
3B: Edgar (oww, my hamstring! Jim Presley is NOT an all-time Mariner)
SS: A-Rod (oh how I would rather put Vizquel here)
LF: Griffey (actually I'd rather put Vizquel HERE, too)
CF: Cameron (better defensively than Junior, 4th best OF in club history, I think)
RF: Ichiro (500 hits in 2 1/4 seasons isn't shabby)
C: Wilson (wish he hit better, but Dave Valle's not going here)
DH: Buhner (if you take out Cameron and put Bone in the OF, either I think Olerud goes to 1B and Davis goes here)

SP: Johnson, Moyer, Garcia, Langston, Mike Moore

Pretty much the current Mariners' bullpen would be as is, I think, although I think that Swifty came out of the 'pen the year before they traded him (ugh) for Mitchell. (UGH!)

Are you joking? Cameron better than Griff at CF? Ken has 10 golden gloves to Mike's 1. Griffey has been in the Majors 15 years to Cameron's 9, but Griffey is only 3 years older than Cameron. (And he's been injured for more than three years of ball). Back in his prime(which SHOULD be now if it weren't for lady luck) Griffey was unstoppable at the plate AND in the outfield.


And for pitchers, nobody mentioned Gaylord Perry. Don't know much about him since he was WAY before my time, but he won 300 games and had a career .311 ERA.

I just said Cameron was better *defensively* than Junior to justify putting Cameron in center and Griffey in left. I've always thought Griffey was slightly overrated defensively in that he made a big splash when he first came up then he kept winning "golden gloves" due to a) his rep for good defense and b) because he hit 40-50 bombs a year. Not that I expect to make any points with someone with the user name "kgriffey79".

And Gaylord Perry didn't pitch for the Mariners until he was 43 and went 13-22 in 1 1/2 seasons. He got his 300th win as a Mariner, sure, but that's not enough to be one of the all-time five best Mariner starters. Heck, Dave Fleming won 17 games one year, and no one's mentioned *him*. (With good reason I might add.)
