Not much to say about Mike Zunino until he plays a bit more at a level that is more on par with his talent. I'm not even sure where that level is, but it would be great to see him dominate wherever he starts the season.
Nick Franklin and anyone else who are vying for a shot at SS with the Mariners are actually blocked by Mike Morse, Kendrys Morales, Raul Ibanez, and any other position player who realizes their potential. As long as the rest of the team is hitting well the Mariners will be happy to carry a no stick all glove SS like Ryan.
The only person who can get in the way of Carter Capps is ... Carter Capps. The kid is dynamite!
Stephen Pryor was quoted recently as saying that he wants Tom Wilhelmsen's job (or something very much to that extent). I like that he has that kind of ambition, and as long as he is productive he very well may take over the closer role one day.
Depending on how you look at it, and who you like over someone else, Hultzen is either blocked by Beaven or Ramirez. Personally, I like Erasmo, so I see him as being the better pitcher when compared to Beavan. Regardless though, right now I believe that Hultzen isn't blocked by anyone until he can prove his second half was a product of fatigue and bad mechanics.
Brandon Maurer, on the other hand, truely is blocked by someone currently in the rotation. I think that with what Maurer can bring to the game that he is actually potentially blocked by guys like Jon Garland.
I like this stuff. Keep it up!
