Hernandez dominant, Cruz goes deep as M's beat Twins 2-0

Cruz's homer led off the second inning and traveled 452 feet on a line five rows deep into the second deck above...

Going...Going...Gone! Seattle Mariners Slugger Nelson Cruz Hits Major League Leading 8th Home Run

When the Seattle Mariners acquired Nelson Cruz they were hoping he would bring some pop to Safeco Field. While he has yet to actually bring much to Safeco Field he has brought plenty to the Mariners. Just 12 games in to the 2015 season he had eight home runs (most in the league).No. 7 came in the first inning Sunday against his old team, the Texas Rangers, with No. 8 coming later...

Seattle Mariners: Trip to L.A. unkind

Well, to put it bluntly, Los Angeles was very unkind to the Seattle Mariners.  Coming off back-to-back extra innings victories, the Mariners dropped three straight to the Dodgers to fall to 3-6 on the season.  For those of you who like me always have an eye on the standings, this puts Seattle into dead last in the A.L. West.  But, considering we’re not even one-tenth done with...

Seattle Mariners: The good, the bad, and the ugly

The first three series of the year are in the books, and the Seattle Mariners stand at 3-6, which is somewhat disappointing, although one must take into consideration a tough schedule to begin the year. The Mariners schedule gets much easier from here as they finish out the month playing against the Rangers, Astros, and Twins. The second half of the month will provide an opportunity...

Mariners' Cruz goes deep for 4th straight game

  Seattle's Nelson Cruz has homered for the fourth straight game to match the longest streak of his career.

Nelson Cruz's fashion-forward first road trip with Mariners

Nelson Cruz may be off to a slow start with his new club, as the Seattle Mariners' new slugger went just 1-11 in the team's opening series against the Los Angeles Angels up at Safeco Field. That doesn't mean he's going to have any less fun than usual, especially when the M's headed out for their first road trip of the season.  A photo of Cruz was snapped on Thursday afternoon that...

Seattle Mariners: 3 Positive Things In 2015

The whole Seattle Mariners off season centers on one question: have the Mariners done enough to take the next step?  The Mariners were a surprise in 2014, surviving elimination from the playoffs until the last day of the season.  With the Oakland A’s making moves and perhaps not being as strong as they were last season, now is the time for Seattle to end that playoff draught...

Texas Rangers Rumors: Nelson Cruz Edition

Here we are, almost finished with January, and Nelson Cruz still remains a free agent. With the huge Mashahiro Tanaka signing by the New York Yankees passing, it is time for other notable stars to get some press attention. Let me put this out flat: I like Nelson Cruz. I don’t think he is a necessary part of this Texas Rangers team that has made some big pick-ups in the offseason...
