The Mariners have been saved... right? Nick Franklin had a big two homer day at the plate and while it's as premature as can be, will he be the hitting prospect (other than Kyle Seager) that can finally perform as anticipated? What can we expect from him going forward? Is a good season by Franklin and either Danny Hultzen or Mike Zunino good enough to save Jack Zduriencik's job?
Callers weigh in on how much rope Jack Z and Eric Wedge have left. Plus is this upcoming crop of youngsters finally the group that's going to succeed at the big league level? Also Wassell doesn't think Shin-Soo Choo was much of a loss. Pitman meanwhile says the Mariners could've had an outfield of Choo, Adam Jones and Mike Morse if the previous regime wasn't so willing to trade them away.
More callers weigh in and there are a few that are ready to see Eric Wedge move on. The reaction is split on Jack Z however as the farm system is still ranked high. What happens in the transition from AAA to the majors?
