The Seattle Mariners may be the team of the moment in the American League right now.

They currently own an 11-6 record, only half a game behind the best in the junior circuit.

They lead the AL West division, and they are looking like solid contenders.

They have built a credible, competitive roster that injects confidence to a fan base that is hungry for glory.

And the best is yet to come.

“@JeffPassan on @SeattleSports ‘I think the sustainability is there, I think this is real and I think the Mariners are the best team in the AL West,’” Maura Dooley, a Mariners reporter, wrote on Twitter.

That’s what ESPN insider Jeff Passan said about the Mariners recently.

It’s a respected opinion from one of the most reliable baseball reporters out there.

This Looks Like The Mariners’ Year

The Mariners were on the verge of making the playoffs last year, but eventually fell short on the final weekend of the season.

This time, they are looking for revenge.

They seem ready to take on the challenge of besting the Houston Astros in the standings, with the Los Angeles Angels also in the thick of things.

Right now, the Mariners have the 2021 AL Cy Young award winner in Robbie Ray (currently sporting a 3.91 ERA) and young star Logan Gilbert (0.40 ERA in 23 innings) headlining the rotation.

Among position players, Ty France, Tom Murphy, J.P. Crawford, and Eugenio Suarez are off to blistering starts.

Imagine when young stars Julio Rodriguez and Jarred Kelenic get hot!

This team has the potential to reach the postseason for the first time since 2001, thanks to their improved roster and the expanded playoffs.

Something really good is brewing in Seattle.
