I’m just getting this out of the way.
Whenever the Seattle Mariners signed a long-legged slugger, it never works out.
Richie Sexson, 6’6”, hit 34 and 39 home runs in his first two seasons, but hit just .205 BA / .295 OBP / .399 SLG / 85 adjusted OPS in his last full season in Seattle.
Michael Morse, 6’5”, hit eight home runs from late March through April, but then died and emerged with the Baltimore Orioles.
Maybe Seattle should have taught those guys to pitch.
