The Mariners had some talent back then but never managed to put it all together. In 1989 they finished 6th in the AL West with a 73-89 record, and they followed this up with 5th place in 1990 and a 77-85 record. Alvin Davis was in the majors from 1984 through 1992, all but the final season of which was with the Mariners. He won the AL Rookie of the Year award in 1984, a season in which he had his career-best RBI total of 116.

To make his way into this league leaders set, Davis finished second in the AL in on-base percentage with .424, and 5th in walks with 101. He got some votes for AL MVP, finishing 23rd.
