In the latest Just a Minute segment with legendary Seattle radio voice Dave “The Groz” Grosby, 710 ESPN Seattle’s host emeritus breaks down his assessment of the team.

“Part of me wonders how patient the fanbase and ownership will be with the long-term rebuilding plan.

For the first time in years, though, that’s something that’s happening with the Mariners,” Groz states in the attached video.
