The Seattle Mariners might not be doing great in the win-loss column during this shortened 60-game season, but KNKX sports commentator Art Thiel says don't pay too much attention to that. 

Thiel says there weren't a ton of expectations going into this season, be it full or shortened. So consider this season an "extended spring training." 

Thiel says it's best to not rush our younger prospects, and to look forward to, hopefully, a full 2021 season.
