2011 Seattle Mariners: Worst Offensive Team In History?

Updated:

By TIM BOOTH
AP Sports Writer

SEATTLE - For weeks, manager Eric Wedge's daily briefing has turned into a psychological examination of why the Seattle Mariners offense is so bad.

Their start to the second half of the season didn't dissuade any of the conversation after the Mariners scored two runs in four games while being swept by Texas, dropped nine straight and fell to 11½ games back in the AL West.

Clearly, the Mariners are playing for 2012. The brief optimism of a month ago when Seattle was just ½-game out in the division race has been replaced by reality - a rebuilding season.

If the Mariners don't improve soon, they could turn out to be one of the worst offensive teams since the designated hitter was added to the American League in 1973.
