Will the Mariners actually have a decent offense this season?

We shouldn't make too much of a few games at the beginning of the season, but the Mariners may have shown a way for them to have an improved offense this season (they've finished dead last in runs scored each of the last two years). 
Chone Figgins is looking like he did with the Angels, which is a very good development for the Mariners.  Ichiro is also hitting well, and could return to form after hitting below .300 for the first time last year.  Dustin Ackley (the 2nd overall pick in the 2009 draft) has been productive, and is in a good spot hitting 2nd.  Jesus Montero and Justin Smoak haven't hit much, but they are enormously talented players and will likely be given a lot of at-bats this season to prove themselves. 
The odds are that the Mariners will be luckly to break .500 and will be buried by the Angels and Rangers early in the season.  While Ichiro is probably nearing the end of his career, they have a lot of young talent in the lineup that could make them relevant again soon.  If Chone Figgins and Ichiro return to form and the young talent develops quickly, they could make a major stride forward this year.
