I can understand (now that I've had time to think about it) why the M's would take a pass on him.

The catcher, Moore, is unlikely to stay behind the plate from what I have heard. He will be moved to either first base or a corner outfield position. He wasn't drafted for his glove, but for his bat. He has displayed good power and a great eye at the plate during his college days.

Outside of adding a centerfielder from Florida State and a shortstop from Stanford, the Mariners have continued to draft pitcher after pitcher (none who truly stand out) trying to restock the lower levels of the minor league system.

I really like the selection of Marrow after seeing some game tape of him during the M's game.
