If you think losing these players is no big deal you know nothing about baseball or are a Mariners fan...
Napoli had one good season and that's it, he's the easiest player to deal with leaving. We all realize Young has been an incredible player for this franchise and will go down as one of the best Rangers in history; however he is not the 7-time all-star Young anymore and both sides get to move on to greener pastures. As for Hamilton, he's an incredible player no denying that. Beltre was the better and more consistent player though last season. This team can win ball games in a variety of ways even without Josh. Josh would be great to have but by no means are we bad with out him.
