Seattle Mariners Betting Odds

The Seattle Mariners joined Major League Baseball in 1977 as an expansion team. Their name and colors -teal, blue and gold- reflect the prominence of marine culture in the Seattle area. The Mariners struggled during their first decade and a half and did not field a winning team until 1991. They have still yet to win a pennant in their 40+ year history, but the 2001 Mariners won 116 games in the regular season, which ties them with the 1906 Chicago Cubs for the MLB record.

The Mariners were not the first MLB team in Seattle. In 1969, the city was awarded an expansion franchise named the Pilots, but that team failed to have success both on the field and in the ticket office and only played in Seattle for one season before moving to Milwaukee and becoming the Brewers. The City sued Major League Baseball for breach of contract, built a new stadium called the Kingdome, and was eventually awarded the expansion Mariners in 1977. Ironically, in their first season, the Mariners finished with the same record the Pilots had (64-98) but were much more viable in ticket sales. Two years later, Seattle hosted the All-Star game.

The Mariners continued to play in the Kingdome until 1999. In that time they won two division titles, in 1995 and 1997. The 1995 team came back from a two-game deficit against the Yankees in the ALDS, and in the fifth game, the Mariners were trailing in the 11th inning at home when Edgar Martinez hit a double that drove home Joey Cora and Ken Griffey Jr to seal the series win. In Seattle, the play is considered to be the biggest hit in franchise history. In the ALCS the Mariners fell in six games to the Cleveland Indians.

In 2001, after having moved into their new stadium T-Moble Park in 1999, the Mariners made it back to the ALDS after a 90-72 record that helped them capture the division. That year they drew over three million in attendance, a franchise record. In the playoffs, the Mariners failed to advance to the ALCS after getting beaten in 4 games by Baltimore. They again returned to the ALDS in 2001, this time defeating the Indians before falling to the Yankees in five games at the ALCS.

Famous players

Ken Griffey Jr is likely the first player that comes to mind when one thinks of great Seattle Mariner players. Griffey Jr played ten years in Seattle racking up 1,752 hits, 1,152 RBIs, 167 stolen bases and 398 home runs during his time there. He was also an exceptional outfielder, winning ten straight gold gloves from 1990 to 1999. Griffey Jr’s number 24 was retired before the 2016 season.

A year later, the Mariners retired Edgar Martinez’s number 11. Martinez played his entire career with the Mariners, winning the AL batting championship in 1992 and 1995 and appearing in the All-Star game seven times in that span.

Randy Johnson is another memorable Mariner alum; Johnson pitched for the Mariners from ’89 to ’98, establishing himself as having one of the most dominant fastballs in Major League history. He holds the franchise record for shutouts.
