The longest postseason drought in MLB will continue for at least another season
The Mariners were eliminated from postseason contention with Sunday's loss
Baseball's longest postseason drought is now one season longer.
Sunday afternoon, the Seattle Mariners were officially eliminated from postseason contention with their loss to the Indians (CLE 4, SEA 2). Seattle went 2-8 in their last 10 games to fall out of the race for the second wild-card spot.
The Mariners have not qualified for the postseason since 2001, the year the club won an AL record 116 games. That was Ichiro Suzuki's rookie season, just to really drive home how long it's been since Seattle has seen October baseball.
2017: Astros, Diamondbacks, Dodgers, Indians Nationals, Red Sox, Yankees
2016: Blue Jays, Cubs, Giants, Mets, Orioles, Rangers
2015: Cardinals, Pirates, Royals
2014: Angels, Athletics, Tigers
2013: Braves, Rays, Reds
2011: Brewers, Phillies
2008: White Sox
Both the Cubs and Twins are likely to clinch a postseason spot in the coming days.
