Bruce Bochte vs. Phil Bradley

Place your votes now as we look to solve, once and for all, who in fact is the Mariners' best left fielder of all time.

Bruce Bochte
Bochte was the first free agent the Mariners signed, joining the club five days before Christmas in 1977. He split time at first base and left field, playing in Seattle for five seasons until 1982. Bochte is best remembered for his hit, a high chopper through the infield, in the 1979 All Star Game, held at the Kingdome in Seattle. Bochte hit .300 twice during that span, belted 58 HR and 380 RBI. He had 697 career hits with the M's before leaving for Oakland in 1983.

Phil Bradley
The M's 3rd round pick in 1981, Bradley played with the big league club from 1983-87 and put of some of the best stats of any Mariner left fielder to date. During that stretch, Bradley hit eclipsed .300 three times, hit 52 HR, 234 RBI and 107 SB. The fleet-footed right-handed hitter was traded to Philadelphia in 1988 in a deal that landed Seattle reliever Mike Jackson.
