The Seattle Mariners opened the 2014 Major League Baseball season with a 10-3 victory against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim. Seattle made some noise in the offseason by signing infielder Robinson Cano, formerly of the New York Yankees, to a 10-year contract, and they also brought in Willie Bloomquist, who was with the Arizona Diamondbacks last season. Seattle finished spring training with an 18-12 record. I hope the Mariners have a good season and make the playoffs.
