Mariners insider Danny Ferguson brings us a fairy tale today. Seattle Mariners third baseman Chone Figgins didn’t have a great season last year. In fact, it was so bad he was booed out of the lineup and was supposedly injured by season’s end. Figgins has now been named the Mariners leadoff hitter for the 2012 season to make it a true fairy tale for him.
NWSB insider Brandon Choate breaks out his crystal ball today and makes a bold prediction. He is predicting the Seattle Mariners 2012 starting rotation to include Felix Hernandez, Jason Vargas, Hisashi Iwakuma, Blake Beavan and Kevin Millwood. The mix of youth and age will prove to be nothing but helpful for the young Mariners team heading into the season.
