In the news:
The Mariners have been historically bad offensively the past three seasons
In 2010, the Mariners scored fewer runs than any team in the majors since 1972, excluding strike-shortened seasons. The Mariners have had the lowest batting average in the majors each of the past three seasons and have ranked at the bottom in most offensive categories.
The Mariners were the worst offensive team in baseball — by a wide margin. Seattle scored 513 runs, the lowest team total in the major leagues since 1972, excluding strike-shortened seasons. The second-lowest scoring team in the American League scored 100 more runs than the Mariners.
The Mariners hit more home runs at home than they did on the road in 2011, but they were bad wherever they played. Again, Seattle was last in the majors in runs scored, batting average and most other offensive categories.
The Mariners were still the worst in the majors in batting average, on-base percentage and slugging percentage. They hit with more power, however, with 149 home runs (including 93 on the road). Bottom line was only 619 runs, not the worst in baseball, but better than only three teams.
