In short the mariners are going through a mini-tank. They had a crack at winning in 17 and 18 and it didn’t go all that well (17 was derailed by injuries and they missed out by a game in 2018 but a lot of the performance was not likely to be repeated) so at the end of 2018 they were left with and old, expensive team and the worst fame system in baseball by some distance.

So they’ve taken a few years off from trying to win to get rid of some of the contracts, and get some young talent in. They’ve done better than most people thought they would in that regard, because they didn’t try to fully tank.
