Wilson, Johnson and rest of M’s all-time bests

July 29th, 2012 by cstark

The best pitcher (Randy Johnson) and best catcher (Dan Wilson) were inducted into the Mariners Hall of Fame on Saturday.

Seems appropriate to come up with the Mariners’ all-time best team (along with my personal all-time favorite M’s team). It’s probably a lot like yours:

C: Dan Wilson (all-time best); Wilson (my personal favorite)

1B: John Olerud (all-time best); Olerud (my personal favorite)

2B: Brett Boone (all-time best); Harold Reynolds (my personal favorite)

SS: Alex Rodriguez (all-time best); Omar Vizquel (personal favorite)

3B: Adrian Beltre (all-time best); Belte (personal favorite)

LF: Phil Bradley (all-time best); Raul Ibanez (personal favorite)

CF: Ken Griffey Jr. (all-time best); Griffey (personal favorite)

RF: Ichiro Suzuki (all-time best); Jay Buhner (personal favorite)

DH: Edgar Martinez (all-time best); Martinez (personal favorite)

Starting pitchers: Randy Johnson, Felix Hernandez, Mark Langston, Freddy Garcia, Jamie Moyer (all-time best); Johnson, Hernandez, Garcia, Chris Bosio, Aaron Sele (personal favorites)

Relief pitchers: Arthur Rhodes, Jeff Nelson, Jamie Putz, Norm Charlton, Kazuhiro Kawasaki, George Sherrill (all-time best); Rhodes, Charlton, Billy Swift, Bill Caudill, Ryan Franklin, Mike  Schooler
