17. Mike Moore (1982-1988)
Moore was drafted number one overall in the 1981 draft by Seattle. It was a good choice, as he went on to be a part of the Seattle rotation for seven seasons. He had 32-plus starts in five seasons as a Mariner.
He broke into the majors in 1982 and immediately made an impact as a starting pitcher. In his 16th start of his career, he pitched a complete game shutout against the Indians, only allowing four hits.
Moore led the American League in games started in 1986 with 37. He eclipsed the 200-inning mark five times as a Mariner.
His best season was in 1985. He won 17 games with a 3.46 ERA, 14 complete games, 247 innings pitched and 155 strikeouts.
Moore finished his Mariners career with 66 wins, sixth best in franchise history. His 1,457 innings as a Mariner is fourth-best all-time. He also posted a WAR of 18.0, sixth all-time.
He was a solid presence in a young Mariners franchise that was still trying to find its footing in Major League Baseball. After the 1988 season, he was signed by Oakland as a free agent. He went on to pitch seven more seasons after departing Seattle, with an All-Star appearance in 1989.
Moore finished with 16 career shutouts and 161 wins. He was a part of the 1989 Oakland Athletics that won the “Bay Bridge Series” against the Giants, with the famous series-interrupting earthquake. Moore had won the previous night.
