OK, this is it, the last one, I promise.  Since I did one for the Seahawks and Sonics, here’s the one for the Mariners.

I’m not gonna lie to you, I’m not exactly as familiar about a lot of these guys as I would like.  But, I did the research so you don’t have to.

I don’t have a lot to add here.  In certain instances I played favorites (like with Cliff Lee, for instance; he’s the tops!), but for the most part I tried to remain as objective as possible.  Those listed in parentheses just missed the cut (or are there for my amusement).  Without further ado:
