The Seattle Mariners may not be the best team right now. They won’t have a single position player voted in to start in the All-Star Game, which will be played in Seattle. Though, Scott Servais has been sent an invitation to be on Dusty Baker‘s coaching staff.
Maybe, it is just a nice gesture. Baker understands the moments in the game and Seattle having their head coach there is a good moment. While the Mariners are a disappointing 38-41 at this point in the season. Scott Servais has finished top three in Manager of the Year voting, twice in the last three years. So, he certainly knows how to coach and make difficult decisions at the highest level.
Servais has been with the Mariners for eight years and has an overall record of 566-545. During that time, he has been through a rebuild and led the Mariners to their first postseason birth in 20 years. Though, this season has not been so kind to the Mariners’ plans or roster.
At this time last year, the Mariners were in the midst of 14-game win streak. The streak had stretched up to the All-Star break and they were a game away from tying the longest win streak in franchise history (15 games in 2001).
The Mariners are in a desperate need for wins, if they plan to make the playoffs for the second year in a row. For a team that added Teoscar Hernandez, Kolten Wong and A.J. Pollock that remains to be the goal. They’re welcoming in the Tampa Bay Rays at the wrong time.
Julio Rodriguez, is currently the only other Mariner representing Seattle during the break. He and the MLB have announced that he’ll participate in the 2023 Home Run Derby.
