Brian Scott our NWSB insider and Seattle Mariners blogger weighs in with some predictions for the M’s should they make the postseason in MLB. The need for a 5th starter just doesn’t happen in the post season.

NWSB Insider and Seattle Mariners Blogger Brian Scott takes a look at which Ms players are hot and which ones are struggling entering the late-season stretch with the playoffs in sight.

Need a suggestion for a 2014 Seattle Mariners all star? Defensively, Robinson Cano has been everything you could ever want at 2nd base. He makes all the routine plays, makes difficult plays look easy and throws in a dazzling play here and there too. Cano has recorded just two errors on the season.

Tough calls for McClendon coming in just over a week. I think it’s fair to say that there has been more intrigue in this year’s Seattle Mariner’s Spring Training Camp than any other for some time.
