    SEATTLE (AP) — In most years [You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login] , 89 wins would have landed the Seattle Mariners in the postseason and ended the longest playoff drought of any team in the four major professional sports.The Mariners picked the wrong year to collapse, going from being in control of a playoff berth at midseason to completely out of the race in early September. And with an expensive and aging core group, Seattle is back to asking whether it should push to be competitive with the rest of the American League powers in 2019 or take a step back and make changes this offseason in the hope of longer sustained success.“Leaving spring training, if you had told any of us that 89 wins was our outcome this year, regardless of how we were going to get there, we would have been thrilled,” Seattle general manager Jerry Dipoto said. “We picked a unique season where 89 wins wasn’t enough.”Seattle’s season was defined by its fade. In the middle of June, the Mariners held an 11-game lead over the A’s in the standings. By the beginning of August, Seattle was caught. By the end of September, the Mariners were eliminated.In each of the previous four seasons, the Mariners’ 89 wins would have kept them in contention for a playoff berth. Before this season [You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login] , the only team to earn one of the AL’s two wild card spots and win more than 90 games was the 2017 Yankees, who entered the postseason with 91 victories.What happened this year with Oakland and the Yankees earning wild card spots with 97 and 100 victories, respectively, is rare. The Mariners more than did their part in contributing to a swoon that saw them finish eight games behind the A’s, but even if Seattle had played .500 baseball after building that 11-game lead, it still would not have been enough to keep pace with Oakland.Seattle’s fade resulted from an offense that lost its punch and a pitching staff that carried the load for half the season and grew fatigued as the season progressed. Seattle’s already made one change, announcing that pitching coach Mel Stottlemyre Jr. will not return in 2019 after three seasons with the team.“We have to figure out as we move forward what it takes to catch the front runners. We don’t want to make it to a wild-card game. We want to be a consistent playoff presence,” Dipoto said.Here are a few key things to watch with the Mariners headed into the offseason:SEAGER BELIEVER: No one had a more disappointing season than Kyle Seager. The former All-Star played more than half the season with a fracture in his big toe, which affected his swing at the plate. Even before the injury, Seager was on his way to a down season, but his .221 average was nearly 30 points below his previous career-low. He also made 14 errors and had a 0.8 WAR [You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login] , the lowest of his career. The Mariners believe a healthy Seager will get on track at the plate in 2019.NEXT FOR NELSON: Nelson Cruz may end up being regarded as the best free agent signing the Mariners have ever made. That’s how good Cruz has been during his four years in Seattle. Cruz, who turned 38 in July, hit .256 with 37 home runs and 97 RBIs this season. He has hit 163 homers and had 414 RBIs in his four seasons with Seattle.But Seattle must determine its priorities at designated hitter and whether it’s possible to bring Cruz back for one or two more years. Cruz and the Mariners both say they want to continue the relationship beyond this season, but problems may arise if another team offers Cruz more money or a longer deal.FIND A POSITION: What to do with Dee Gordon and Robinson Cano? Both believe they are second basemen. But can’t both play second base.Seattle went into this season experimenting with Gordon in center field and was forced to move him back to his natural position at second following Cano’s suspension. When Cano returned, the Mariners moved the pair all around the field with Cano at first, second and third base and Gordon playing second base, shortstop and center field.Cano said Sunday he’s going into the offseason believing he’s Seattle’s second baseman going forward.WHAT ABOUT FELIX: What can the Mariners expect from Felix Hernandez anymore?The former ace of the Mariners staff wasn’t very “Kingly” in 2018, going 8-14 with a career-worst 5.55 ERA. He was briefly demoted to the bullpen — making just one appearance in relief — and at times was lost trying to figure out how to still be an effective starting pitcher with lower velocity.Hernandez will turn 33 early in the 2019 season and perhaps he will have additional motivation entering the final year of his current contract. Clearly there must be changes made if Hernandez is to remain an effective starter and have any chance of a significant contract — in Seattle or elsewhere — after the 2019 season. Bob Levey/Getty ImagesThe Boston Red Sox pulled ahead in the American League Championship Series after an 8-2 Game 3 win over the Houston Astros.Steve Pearce hit the go-ahead home run in the sixth inning, but Jackie Bradley Jr. helped the team pull away with an eighth-inning grand slam.Nathan Eovaldi earned the win after allowing two runs in six innings to help the Red Soxtake a 2-1 lead in the best-of-seven series.Defense Is as Important as Offense in This SeriesAs we have seen in the playoffs and throughout the regular season, there isn't a lot that separates these two teams. They both have elite pitchers and deep lineups, which will ensure each game begins as a toss-up.However [You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login] , defense can make a difference in games and it could give the Astros an advantage going forward and a chance to even things up.Houston made some eye-popping plays, although none were better than Tony Kemp's catch in the outfield:BYU鈥檚 Cosmo the Cougar Is the Next Superstar MascotJoshua Johnson Is HS Footballs Quadruple ThreatThe Champions x Queer EyeHappy 26th Birthday to OBJ 馃帀Happy Anniversary to the Cubs Curse-BreakingD-Rose Turned Back the Clock and Put Up 50Will Drake鈥檚 Favorite Teams Reverse the 6 God Curse?Sports Worlds Halloween Costumes Went HardUp Your Halloween Game with Giant Pumpkin RegattaThe Champions: Episode 6 Is ComingDubs Trolled Fergie So Hard It Became a ChallengePurdue Footballs No. 1 Fan Is Inspiring the TeamOne Road to MLB Starts with a Bottle Cap and BroomstickIts Been a Wild Month with Flyers鈥?Mascot Gritty馃専The Champions: Episode 5 馃専CP3-Rondo Blowup Was a Long Time ComingMahomes Is Showtime Off the Field TooCFBs Creative Entrances Put WWE to ShameWorld Pole Climbing Championships Are Something ElseNBA Let Players Know They Have to Cover Branded TattoosRight Arrow IconWith two men on and two outs at the time, this play saved at least one run and possibly more.Carlos Correa and Alex Bregman also made impressive plays in the infield, with the latter turning heads several times during the game:MLB MLBWhat can鈥檛 ABREG_1 do well? #ALCS VOE5ZNTWNtZachary quot;Doomquot; Rymer zachrymerAlex Bregmans third base defense has been the best part of this ALCS.Jon Heyman JonHeymanAlex Bregman is putting on a showOn the other side, the Red Sox finished with zero errors but cost themselves with several misplays. The Red Sox only got one out on a potential double-play grounder in the first, and a runner eventually came home. Rafael Devers couldn't make a play on what became an RBI double in the fifth.According toBaseball Reference, the Astros had 1.3 defensive wins above replacement as a team this year, while the Red Sox wereminus-4.1over the course of the season. We are now seeing this play out in real time during the ALCS.If this doesn't change, the defensive difference could lead to a series win for Houston despite being down 2-1 in the series.Nathan Eovaldi's Efficiency Saved Series for BostonNathan Eovaldi's start must have seemed like a perfect game compared to what we have seen from the Red Sox pitching staff this postseason.The 28-year-old overcame a difficult first inning to produce a quality start, allowing two runs in six innings, his second strong outing of the playoffs:Joel Sherman Joelsherman1Eovaldi gave up 3 hits and a run in 1st inning on 26 pitches. He has allowed 3 hits and 1 run on 66 pitches over next 5 innings [You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login] , and 2 of the hits could have (should have?) been ruled errors. #RedSox #Astros He is making himself lots of dough in free agency.He also pitched seven innings of one-run ball in Game 3 against the New York Yankees, although few noticed in the 16-1 win.His effort likely changed the momentum of the ALDS while providing some much-needed relief for the bullpen after being overworked in the first two games. The story was the same in the first two games of this round, with neither Chris Sale nor David Price capable of getting out of the fifth inning.Tuesday's start allowed manager Alex Cora to put his best pitchers on the mound instead of worrying about matchups for five or more innings. The insurance runs at the end also allowed him to save closer Craig Kimbrel.The key players will now be able to pitch in Game 4if needed, a big advantage going into an important battle. Red Sox Don't Need Stars to Punch World Series TicketBoston had the No. 1 scoring offense in baseball this season as players like Mookie Betts and J.D. Martinez turned into household names.However, it's clear the hitters at the top of the order aren't the only reason this team has been successful this year.Betts finished 1-for-5 in Game 3 while Martinez and Andrew Benintendi have both struggled throughout this series. Still, the team has managed 15 runs over the past two games thanks to the contributions from the back of the lineup.Bradley only had a .234 batting average this season and finished seventh on the team in RBI, but he has now driven in seven runs in the last two games. His grand slam helped break things open in the eighth inning:BYU鈥檚 Cosmo the Cougar Is the Next Superstar MascotJoshua Johnson Is HS Footballs Quadruple ThreatThe Champions x Queer EyeHappy 26th Birthday to OBJ 馃帀Happy Anniversary to the Cubs Curse-BreakingD-Rose Turned Back the Clock and Put Up 50Will Drake鈥檚 Favorite Teams Reverse the 6 God Curse?Sports Worlds Halloween Costumes Went HardUp Your Halloween Game with Giant Pumpkin RegattaThe Champions: Episode 6 Is ComingDubs Trolled Fergie So Hard It Became a ChallengePurdue Footballs No. 1 Fan Is Inspiring the TeamOne Road to MLB Starts with a Bottle Cap and BroomstickIts Been a Wild Month with Flyers鈥?Mascot Gritty馃専The Champions: Episode 5 馃専CP3-Rondo Blowup Was a Long Time ComingMahomes Is Showtime Off the Field TooCFBs Creative Entrances Put WWE to ShameWorld Pole Climbing Championships Are Something ElseNBA Let Players Know They Have to Cover Branded TattoosRight Arrow IconPearce鈥攚ho was traded to the team at the end of June鈥攈elped give Boston the initial lead:BYU鈥檚 Cosmo the Cougar Is the Next Superstar MascotJoshua Johnson Is HS Footballs Quadruple ThreatThe Champions x Queer EyeHappy 26th Birthday to OBJ 馃帀Happy Anniversary to the Cubs Curse-BreakingD-Rose Turned Back the Clock and Put Up 50Will Drake鈥檚 Favorite Teams Reverse the 6 God Curse?Sports Worlds Halloween Costumes Went HardUp Your Halloween Game with Giant Pumpkin RegattaThe Champions: Episode 6 Is ComingDubs Trolled Fergie So Hard It Became a ChallengePurdue Footballs No. 1 Fan Is Inspiring the TeamOne Road to MLB Starts with a Bottle Cap and BroomstickIts Been a Wild Month with Flyers鈥?Mascot Gritty馃専The Champions: Episode 5 馃専CP3-Rondo Blowup Was a Long Time ComingMahomes Is Showtime Off the Field TooCFBs Creative Entrances Put WWE to ShameWorld Pole Climbing Championships Are Something ElseNBA Let Players Know They Have to Cover Branded TattoosRight Arrow IconThe first baseman is hitting .304 so far this postseason.These players have shown they can come through in big moments and carry the team to victory.
