Why Shohei Ohtani would sign with the Seattle Mariners

Related Topics: Shohei Ohtani

The Seattle Mariners should desperately want to sign Shohei Ohtani. I feel little need to belabor that point. The Mariners just watched their closest shot at an AL West title in decades slip through their fingertips, and saw the Texas Rangers usurp their incremental rebuild with a financially-infused re-kit to slay the Houston Astros and claim the AL Pennant and the World Series trophy. Adding the best hitter in Major League Baseball in 2023, ahead of his age-29 season, would do more to shore up Seattle’s lineup than any other single transaction for 2024 and beyond.
