I do think the Mariners will improve, but they'll still have to compete with the likes of Los Angeles of Anaheim and Texas.
The Padres have less daunting competition in the Giants, Diamondbacks, Rockies and Dodgers; although perhaps the new ownership group will help the latter (though I'm rather skeptical if that sale turns out to have been as leveraged as I've read about).
