SEATTLE (AP) — In most years Don Larsen Jersey , 89 wins would have landed the Seattle Mariners in the postseason and ended the longest playoff drought of any team in the four major professional sports.The Mariners picked the wrong year to collapse, going from being in control of a playoff berth at midseason to completely out of the race in early September. And with an expensive and aging core group, Seattle is back to asking whether it should push to be competitive with the rest of the American League powers in 2019 or take a step back and make changes this offseason in the hope of longer sustained success.“Leaving spring training, if you had told any of us that 89 wins was our outcome this year, regardless of how we were going to get there, we would have been thrilled,” Seattle general manager Jerry Dipoto said. “We picked a unique season where 89 wins wasn’t enough.”Seattle’s season was defined by its fade. In the middle of June, the Mariners held an 11-game lead over the A’s in the standings. By the beginning of August, Seattle was caught. By the end of September, the Mariners were eliminated.In each of the previous four seasons, the Mariners’ 89 wins would have kept them in contention for a playoff berth. Before this season, the only team to earn one of the AL’s two wild card spots and win more than 90 games was the 2017 Yankees, who entered the postseason with 91 victories.What happened this year with Oakland and the Yankees earning wild card spots with 97 and 100 victories, respectively, is rare. The Mariners more than did their part in contributing to a swoon that saw them finish eight games behind the A’s http://www.yankeesfanproshop.com/authentic-johnny-damon-jersey , but even if Seattle had played .500 baseball after building that 11-game lead, it still would not have been enough to keep pace with Oakland.Seattle’s fade resulted from an offense that lost its punch and a pitching staff that carried the load for half the season and grew fatigued as the season progressed. Seattle’s already made one change, announcing that pitching coach Mel Stottlemyre Jr. will not return in 2019 after three seasons with the team.“We have to figure out as we move forward what it takes to catch the front runners. We don’t want to make it to a wild-card game. We want to be a consistent playoff presence,” Dipoto said.Here are a few key things to watch with the Mariners headed into the offseason:SEAGER BELIEVER: No one had a more disappointing season than Kyle Seager. The former All-Star played more than half the season with a fracture in his big toe, which affected his swing at the plate. Even before the injury, Seager was on his way to a down season, but his .221 average was nearly 30 points below his previous career-low. He also made 14 errors and had a 0.8 WAR, the lowest of his career. The Mariners believe a healthy Seager will get on track at the plate in 2019.NEXT FOR NELSON: Nelson Cruz may end up being regarded as the best free agent signing the Mariners have ever made. That’s how good Cruz has been during his four years in Seattle. Cruz, who turned 38 in July, hit .256 with 37 home runs and 97 RBIs this season. He has hit 163 homers and had 414 RBIs in his four seasons with Seattle.But Seattle must determine its priorities at designated hitter and whether it’s possible to bring Cruz back for one or two more years. Cruz and the Mariners both say they want to continue the relationship beyond this season, but problems may arise if another team offers Cruz more money or a longer deal.FIND A POSITION: What to do with Dee Gordon and Robinson Cano? Both believe they are second basemen. But can’t both play second base.Seattle went into this season experimenting with Gordon in center field and was forced to move him back to his natural position at second following Cano’s suspension. When Cano returned, the Mariners moved the pair all around the field with Cano at first, second and third base and Gordon playing second base, shortstop and center field.Cano said Sunday he’s going into the offseason believing he’s Seattle’s second baseman going forward.WHAT ABOUT FELIX: What can the Mariners expect from Felix Hernandez anymore?The former ace of the Mariners staff wasn’t very “Kingly” in 2018, going 8-14 with a career-worst 5.55 ERA. He was briefly demoted to the bullpen — making just one appearance in relief — and at times was lost trying to figure out how to still be an effective starting pitcher with lower velocity.Hernandez will turn 33 early in the 2019 season and perhaps he will have additional motivation entering the final year of his current contract. Clearly there must be changes made if Hernandez is to remain an effective starter and have any chance of a significant contract — in Seattle or elsewhere — after the 2019 season. PHOENIX — The Arizona Diamondbacks have been hard-pressed to recover from their last series in Dodger Stadium.The Colorado Rockies may still have time to recover from theirs.The Diamondbacks have lost 14 of 19 to fall six games behind Los Angeles in National League West and five games behind St. Louis for the second wild card spot with nine to play Masahiro Tanaka Jersey , the trouble starting when they lost three consecutive 3-2 games on the Dodgers’ final at-bat from Aug. 31-Sept. 2. Arizona opened that series in first place in the division and the Rockies were in second.Article continues below ...The Dodgers pulled the same shenanigans on Colorado earlier this week, sweeping a three-game series at Dodger Stadium helped by six homers, including game-deciders in the final two games, to jump over the Rockies and take a 2 1/2-game division lead. The Rockies are 1 1/2 games behind the Cardinals in the wild-card race.“Like I’ve said all along, I think this is going to come down to the end,” manager Bud Black told reporters after Yasiel Puig’s three-run, pinch-hit homer in the seventh inning of a 5-2 victory Wednesday.Rockies right-hander German Marquez (12-10, 3.96 ERA) is scheduled to face Arizona right-hander Zack Greinke (14-10, 3.20) in the first contest of a three-game series at Chase Field on Friday, the third time the two have opposed each other this season. Marquez enters with a streak of 10 straight quality starts.The Rockies took three of four from the Diamondbacks early last week and led the division by 1 1/2 games before losing five of six on their current road trip. Their troubles were compounded by the loss of shortstop Trevor Story, who suffered right elbow inflammation and was forced to leave the first game of the Dodgers’ series.Story became the first shortstop in major league history with 40 doubles, 30 homers and 25 stolen bases when he doubled against the Diamondbacks on Sept. 11. He was expected to participate in baseball activities at the Rockies’ spring training facility in Scottsdale, Ariz., on Thursday and could be available this weekend.Since beating the Diamondbacks 10-3 on Sept. 13, the Rockies have scored nine runs in six games. They were shut out twice in San Francisco and scored two runs in each loss in Los Angeles.“We’ve got to score more runs. We’ve got to get more hits Miguel Andujar Jersey ,” Black told reporters in Los Angeles. “This is something we talk about every afternoon when we get to the ballpark. We’ve got to press on.”Arizona manager Torey Lovullo found an unorthodox way to spark his offense Wednesday, when the Diamondbacks used homers from reserves Christian Walker and Chris Owings, and Jeff Mathis‘ first of the season in a 9-0 victory over the Cubs.The victory, which broke a four-game losing streak, came with regulars and top hitters Paul Goldschmidt, David Peralta, A.J. Pollock and Eduardo Escobar on the bench.“You get the understudies in the ball game and they brought a certain energy to the start of the game,” Lovullo said.“Everybody has children here. You look in your kids’ eyes after they studied for a test and they come home, and they don’t do their job and you know that look. You can tell what’s on their mind. I’ve seen a few of those looks from our guys, and I just thought it was time to give them a rest.”Patrick Kivlehan, who made his first start of the season, tied a franchise game record with two triples.“We were just joking around, like the Reno Aces were going out there,” Kivlehan said, referring to the Diamondbacks’ Triple-A affiliate.“We tried to keep it simple http://www.athleticsfanproshop.com/authentic-khris-davis-jersey , not put too much pressure on ourselves. Just go out and have some fun. That would be awesome if it kind of got us going to make a little run here.”Lovullo said he plans to return to the regular lineup Friday.“Obviously it has been a struggle the past couple of weeks, and I feel like (in) the dugout things have been like forced a little bit,” Owings said. “A win like this might give some guys some clear heads going into Friday.”Greinke, who has a 3.20 ERA, will have the first of two possible chances to reach the 15-win plateau for the eighth time in his career Friday. He has won at least 15 games in six of the previous seven seasons, including the year he split between Milwaukee and the Angels in 2012. He won 13 in his first season in Arizona in 2016, when he was on the disabled list for six weeks with an oblique injury.Greinke is 2-5 with a 3.75 ERA in his last nine starts after a streak in which he won seven straight decisions. He has given up a career-high 28 homers, five in his last four starts.The Rockies are a familiar foe — he is 3-0 with a 2.77 ERA in four starts against them this season and is 12-5 with a 3.76 ERA in 29 career appearances (28 starts) Greinke has beaten them twice at Coors Field and once at home this season, when he gave only two hits and struck out a season-high 13 in a 6-1 victory at Chase Field on July 22. He is 6-3 at home this season after going 13-1 at home in 2017.Marquez is 4-2 with a 2.34 ERA during his streak of 10 straight quality starts, a run that began after he gave up eight hits and six runs (five earned) in a no-decision against the Diamondbacks on July 20, a game the Rockies won 11-10. He has faced Arizona five times already this season, going 2-1 with a 4.33 ERA.Marquez has 87 strikeouts and 14 walks during his streak, which covers 69 1/3 innings. He has had his only four double-digit strikeout games this season in the streak, with a season-high 13 against San Diego on Aug. 30. He struck out 11 Diamondbacks in a 13-2 victory at Coors Field on Sept. 10.
