The Mariners are still searching for their first World Series, but at least they have a stacked all-time Starting 9. Griffey Jr., Rodriguez, Ichiro, Martinez, and Johnson are amongst the greatest players in MLB history. Griffey hit over 400 HR and won one MVP and 10 Gold Gloves en route to becoming arguably the most popular player of all time. As a 20-year-old, A-Rod led the American League in runs (141), doubles (54), and BA (.358), and hit 36 HR to finish runner-up for the MVP. Martinez became the greatest DH of all time during his 18-year career. Ichiro won the AL MVP as a rookie and eventually tallied over 2,500 hits as a Mariner despite beginning his MLB career at the age of 27. Johnson won 130 games and his first Cy Young with Seattle, and had a dominant stretch that saw him go 75-20 with a 2.86 ERA and 1,182 strikeouts in five years.
