And it couldn’t come at a better time for the Mariners who have been streaky on offense. Where will Franklin fit in? Brad Miller, the man […]
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.
