"Mariners under 67.5. The Mariners won 68 games last year thanks to a fluky 13-2 start to the season. They bring back that team, mostly untouched, and will almost certainly move anyone who performs well in the first half. As I mentioned in their writeup, their pitching staff has a chance to be truly awful. The Mariners are easily the worst team in an improved division, and they play a tough interleague slate with the NL East and the Padres."
