Is this finally the year for the Seattle Mariners? The team hasn't made the postseason since 2001, and fans are so sick and tired of being the butt of so many jokes. Well, 2021 may be a year to remember for the club.

As of this writing, the M's are 0.5 games back of the Boston Red Sox for the second AL Wild Card spot. Seattle is playing red hot right now. Can they get the job done?

If they do, Mitch Haniger will surely be to thank. He's been red hot and that continued on Tuesday night with another homer. Keep your eyes on Seattle the rest of the week, folks.
