There is no doubt that The Seattle Mariners were looking to greatly improve the team in the 2014 season. They spent millions of dollars to bring in free agents like Robinson Cano, Fernando Rodney and Corey Hart. Yet, if the Mariners are good this year, Brad Miller may have a lot to do with it, according to blog.seattlepi.com. A tweet from a Mariners fan on March 21st even referred to Miller as “the best player that no one knows.”
So should Miller be receiving more attention and credit? The 24-year-old shortstop joined the Mariners in the 2013 season. “Miller didn’t exactly set the world on fire last season, but he showed some consistency and a nice range of offensive tools that could prove very useful,” according to fantasycpr.com. However, this year he is projected to be a top-ten shortstop in the majors and may be one of the most important Ms’ on the team in years to come.
No one is denying that Cano deserves the spotlight he is receiving and will be instrumental in how the Mariners’ season plays out. But maybe, Miller will be able to step out of the shadows and share the glory.
