Synopses & Reviews
Jon Wells, a baseball writer who has covered the Seattle Mariners for more than 15 years, asserts that poor management and shortsighted ownership combined to keep a team with three first-ballot Hall of Fame players, each in the prime of his career, from reaching the World Series. Wells details every misstep by the Mariners during the team’s 35-year history. But wait, there’s hope! Can General Manager Jack Zduriencik bring in enough young talent to make this club a contender again, as he did for the Milwaukee Brewers?
"If you're a Seattle baseball fan wondering how an affluent franchise, in an era of MLB parity, can be the only American League team never to make a World Series, you'll know after reading Shipwrecked."--Art Thiel, Sportspress Northwest, author of Out of Left Field.
