Greg Briley vs. Kevin Mitchell

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. Lets take a look at the top candidates from the 1990's.

Greg Briley
Nicknamed "Pee Wee" for his fireplug stature, Briley played in Seattle from 1988-1992 before leaving for the expansion Florida Marlins in 1993. The Mariners' first-round pick in 1986, Briley recorded 351 hits, 21 homers, and 123 RBI in 1348 at bats in Seattle. His most memorable hit was a two-run homer that propelled the M's to a win over the Yankees in a 16-inning home game in 1991.

Kevin Mitchell
Mitchell hit 184 homeruns in his seven major league seasons before coming to Seattle in the monumental trade of Dec. 11, 1991 (Mitchell and Mike Remlinger came to the Mariners in return for Mike Jackson, Dave Burba and Bill Swift). Mitchell was supposed to be the big bopper who could conceivably hit 50 homers in the homer dome known as the Kingdome. Instead, he hit just nine homers in 360 at bats in 1992 before being shipped to Cincinnati for Norm Charlton following the season. He hit just 71 homers in his five seasons after Seattle.
