Shipwrecked
By

Rating
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? "Shipwrecked" includes 45 color photos, most of which have not been published elsewhere.

Reviews

"A sobering, brutally honest look at the moves and misfires of one of baseball's last two teams to never make the World Series."--Geoff Baker, "Seattle Times" "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". "A must read for all long-suffering Mariner fans."--Dave Mahler, KJR Sportsradio, Seattle "Seattle baseball fans will enjoy this sometimes fun, often critical, and always thorough history of the Mariners' ups and all-too-many downs."--Jim Caple, ESPN.com "Nobody, and I mean nobody, knows the Mariners like Jon Wells knows the Mariners."--Rob Neyer, National Baseball Editor, SB Nation "This is not a warm and fuzzy recounting of the glory days that ends with Ken Griffey Junior grinning below a jubilant dogpile of teammates."--Keegan Hamilton, "Seattle Weekly"
