Any system that starts with Julio Rodriguez and Noelvi Marte is going to be good. The Mariners system is indeed strong. In addition to J-Rod and Marte, the Mariners have one of the best pitching tandems in the game in Emerson Hancock and George Kirby. There’s also a ton of young players that are a long way from the Major Leagues but could serve as trade chips as the Mariners begin their run.
While the Mariners might have overachieved in 2021, it’s all set up for them to start their run as soon as 2022.
