Jason Churchill of Prospect Insider breaks down the Mariners as they head into the final 2 months. He talks about Tom Wilhelmsen and his role as a "starter", even though that may not be in his future. He gives us the scoop on 2 young relievers in AA in Dominic Leone and Carson Smith. He compares Leone to Braves closer Craig Kimbrel. He says Kendrys Morales needs to be the biggest free agent priority for the Mariners to sign in the offseason.
Matt really wants to take a good look at the Seahawks first 2013 draft pick Christine Michael as he will be getting a ton of carries in the pre-season. He's interested in how he fits into the running game after Marshawn Lynch's statistically best season and a strong rookie campaign from Robert Turbin.
The one area that the Seahawks could stand to improve depth is at the tight end position as there isn't much behind Zach Miller. The receiving corps in general will need to step up a bit with Percy Harvin out for at least the first half of the season. Matt will have his eyes on the defensive end battle.
