The Grueling Truth - Where Legends Speak / Top 10 Seattle Mariners of All Time

Top 10 Seattle Mariners of All Time

Top 10 Mariners of all-time!
Publish Date: 04/29/2023
Fact checked by: Mark Lewis

Active players are not eligible for this list. The Mariners have a crazy history, but they have some legendary players along the way.

10) Alvin Davis

Davis is a forgotten star in Mariners history but His 1989 season may be one of the most underrated in team history. In hitting .305 with 21 home runs and a .920 OPS, he led the American League in Offensive Win Percentage at .751.

9) Dan Wilson

Wilson is the best catcher in Mariners’ history and ranked in the top four in the American League in throwing out base stealers in every season from 1994-97 and led the AL in 1995 and 1997.

8) Jamie Moyer

Moyer was a little bit of a journeyman when he landed in Seattle in 1996 at age 33, having already played for five other teams. But he created his legacy with the Mariners, starting 323 games over the next 11 years — a team record when he finally departed in 2006. He went 145-87 with the Mariners.

7) Jay Buhner

Buhner was a stalwart for the Mariners for over a decade and put up some great numbers like games played (1,440) and hits (1,255) and third all-time in home runs (307) and walks (788). Also won a Gold Glove in 1996.

6) Alex Rodriguez

Rodriguez, as a Mariner, was a force to be dealt with in the post-season as he was 18 for 53 (.334 average) in the postseason with Seattle with three home runs. Rodriguez had a .309 batting average with the Mariners and 189 home runs. Rodriguez was a force on the basepaths.

5) Felix Hernandez

Hernandez has the most wins in team history (158) and the best starter ERA (3.19) among a bevy of career bests and his perfect game against Tampa Bay in 2012 is the single-best pitching performance in the team’s history.

4) Edgar Martinez

Martinez played in more games than anyone in team history (2,055), scored more runs (1,219), has the second-best average (.312), the best on-base percentage by a long shot (.412 — Ken Phelps is next at .392), and a walk total that may never be broken (1,283 — Griffey is next with 819). And, well, he also had the biggest hit in team history, the double down the line to score Joey Cora and Griffey to beat the Yankees in 1995.

3) Randy Johnson

Johnson averaged 10.6 strikeouts per nine innings as a Mariner (by comparison, Hernandez has averaged 8.4). Johnson also pitched the first no-hitter in team history, and got the two biggest wins in team history, going all the way to beat the Angels in the one-game playoff in 1995 and then getting the win in relief in Game 5 against the Yankees.

2) Ichiro

In Ichiro’s rookie season not much was expected of the Mariners, but behind a fantastic rookie season from Ichiro the Mariners went on to win an MLB record-tying 116 games, and Ichiro captured only the second MVP in team history. Then there was 2004 when he set the all-time season hits record. His career team records for hits (2,533) and average (.322) also won’t be easy to break.

1) Ken Griffey Jr

No explanation should be needed for number one as Griffey made it cool to be a Mariners fan. He turned the Mariners into a playoff contender and gave the Mariners respectability that they had never had before and Griffey’s ascension led to a new ballpark which was badly needed.
