Rewind: Live chat with former Mariners slugger Jay Buhner
Jay Buhner played 15 years in the majors, including 14 standout seasons with the Mariners.
His trade from the New York Yankees to Seattle on July 21, 1988, is considered one of the best in franchise history.
On June 23, 1993, he earned his place in M's lore and baseball history by hitting for the cycle in an extra-inning victory over the Oakland A's at the Kingdome.
Buhner's best stretch in a Mariners uniform was from 1995-97 when he hit 40+ HR in three straight seasons and drove in 368 runs. For his career, he hit .254 with 310 HR and 965 RBI.
He talked about his playing days in Seattle, his post-retirement life, a new DVD called "The Essential Games of the Mariners" and more in a live chat on Sept. 30.
