    IMO, Brady Clark brings a lot more to the team than Tuck and Wilton Guerrero can do most of the things that Stynes can do. Guerrero is not great but neither is Stynes. Obviously our bench is not anything spectacular and if they have to be counted on we will be in trouble but I do not think one of the main reasons for an unsuccessful season is going to be the lack of Chris Stynes or Michael Tucker. Tuck was here last year and he was hardly a saving grace when the injury bug started to fly.

    As for the pitching, it can't be any worse than it was last year, so I do not see any way possible this team losses 100 games.

    I say 79-83. The every day lineup and bullpen is as good as the optimists think they are, and the starting pitching is almost as bad as the pessimists think it is.

    The pitching just isn't there.

    My beloved Mariners proved year after year that you can score a ton of runs and still finish under .500

    Well Maine,
    You are right that Guerrero and Clark are potentially good bench assets. I'm not as confident in Clark as you are, but he's a pretty good bench player, especially on our budget.

    I guess my point is that if we have an injury anywhere but catcher, we are going to take a huge hit.

    I agree that Tucker had a down year for us last year. I should've phrased that a bit better. In 1999, when Vaughn got hurt, Tucker and Hammond filled in great and we didn't miss a beat. Stynes covered 3b great for us at the end of 2000 -- although Stynes has had bad years off the bench too, I like him better than Wilton.

    I just wish Dawkins had panned out. Also, although we supposedly have a surplus of OF, after Dunn and Jr, we are going to get nothing out of them this year. I really wish Mateo or Kearns had won the job and JuanE was the 4th OF.

    I guess I'd feel a lot better if we had another solid OF and infielder.. Clark and Wilton may fill those shoes, but I'm not as optimistic about it. Hope I'm wrong.
    Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2010-2014!
