In the past few months, new-general manager Jack Zdurirencik has been busy, and the Seattle Mariners roster has been turning over, but to look at just how much this team has changed, flip the calendar back to last April.

And the pitching staff? It had Cha-Seung Baek, R.A. Dickey, Sean Green, Eric O'Flaherty, J.J. Putz and Arthur Rhodes.
That's 14 players gone since the first month of last season, an extraordinary turnaround, and doesn't even include players like Jeremy Reed and Jake Woods, who came up later in the year and are now gone.
A team that suffers the ultimate meltdown of expecting to contend, then losing 102 games, can expect major alterations. The Mariners have a new GM, a rebuilt front office staff, a new manager and all-new coaching staff.
And on the field, you're going to need to check your program through much of spring training.
The lineup will be different. The bench will be new. The rotation and bullpen have changed.
It's been an extraordinary reworking of a franchise, and it's likely not done, yet.
How well it works – and how patient the fans are in watching it move forward – should be intriguing to watch. For Seattle Mariners fans disgusted with 2008, this isn't the team you booed four months ago.
It's a new team, and it had to be.
