Mariners season wrap: Watch the video and take the 67-man roster quiz

Oct 2, 2019, 11:53 PM | Updated: Oct 3, 2019, 12:59 am

The Seattle Mariners’ 2019 season has concluded, but not before they set a brand new Major League Baseball record: They surpassed the 2014 Texas Rangers and now own the distinction for using the most players in a single season.

How many players? A grand total of 67.

Drayer: M’s will let the kids play in 2020, so expect a different offseason

So with Mariners insider Shannon Drayer back at the 710 ESPN Seattle offices and set to resume her regular video podcast with James “Boy Howdy” Osborn, she had the brilliant idea for them to try to name all 67 players.

In the video, Drayer and Osborn tackle all manner of topics regarding the 2019 Mariners and the upcoming offseason, but the real main event is when they take a quiz and see how many of the 67 names they can come up with in five minutes. And as pointed out in the video, the Sporcle quiz put together by yours truly was less than 100% accurate at the time – there was a typo in one name and another player whose tricky accent I forgot to take out. In my defense, I created the quiz just before they began taping, and it has since been fully edited and vetted for.

Want to take the 2019 Mariners Record-Breaking 67-Man Roster Challenge yourself? Find the quiz below, which also features a much more manageable 15-minute time limit. As Shannon pointed out after the taping, five minutes is barely enough to type all 67 names even if you were just reading them off a page. Anyways, take the challenge and then compare your results to how the 710 ESPN Seattle duo did over a pair of five-minute sessions in the video.

Of course the “vodcast” isn’t limited to quiz-taking. Some of the other Mariners subjects discussed include:

• The phrase related to the Mariners’ rebuild you can blame Shannon for
• The experience of witnessing Ichiro’s farewell in Japan
• Edgar Martinez’s Hall of Fame induction
• Félix Hernández’s final start for the Mariners, his trying season and what the future holds for him
• Which prospects are expected to have roles in 2020 for the Mariners
• What Shannon saw out of rookie pitchers Justus Sheffield and Justin Dunn
• The connection between minor league pitcher/catcher battery Logan Gilbert and Cal Raleigh

Stay tuned to throughout the Mariners offseason for more video podcasts with Shannon and Howdy.
