The Mariners last appeared in the playoffs in 2001, when they won the AL West Division title and that’s the longest current drought without postseason play in the major leagues. It would be one thing if the Mariners were building for the future but the key cogs on this team – Felix Hernandez, Robinson Cano, Kyle Seager and Nelson Cruz – are all on the wrong side of 30.
