Mariners Breakdown: Will they take the next step in 2023?

Mar 29, 2023, 3:42 PM

What may be the most anticipated season in the history of the Seattle Mariners is finally here.

Lefko: Three reasons the M’s could be better than people think

The M’s meet the Cleveland Guardians at 7:10 p.m. Thursday live on Seattle Sports to open the 2023 season, and they’re looking to take the next step after reaching the playoffs as a wild card in 2022 and winning a series once they got there. Seattle still has work to do, however, if they want to reach their ultimate goal of winning a World Series.

Is the 2023 team good enough to challenge the Houston Astros in the American League West? That’s one of the big questions we asked Seattle Sports’ Bob Stelton in the first Bob’s Baseball Breakdown video of the year.

In the video with the longtime Mariners follower and Wyman and Bob co-host, Stelton shares his thoughts on:

• His excitement for the 2023 Mariners after a week at spring training
• How he feels about the team’s offseason moves
• His biggest Mariners concern
• Which Mariners player stands out after numerous interviews this offseason
• Whether the Astros are vulnerable
• His one big hot take on the M’s
• His season prediction

Don’t miss Wyman and Bob when they’re live at T-Mobile Park beginning at 2 p.m. Thursday, taking Seattle Sports listeners all the way up to Mariners pregame at 6 p.m.
