Adam Moore was once considered the future for the Seattle Mariners behind the plate, the kind of player who would take that job and hold it for a decade.
Given a shot last year, he didn't even hold it two months - done in by injuries and a .197 batting average.
This winter, the team signed veteran Miguel Olivo to a two-year contract with a third-year option, all but negating Moore to bench work if he played well enough to make the team. Moore isn't bitter, blaming himself for his fall from grace.
