The Seattle Mariners Have A Battle For The Five Hole Starter

The Fifth Man In Rotation Will Win Job During Spring The Seattle Mariners roster for 2015 continues to finalize itself.  The M’s just picked up Endy Chavez one more time with a minor league deal to bolster their depth in the outfield.  Only one spot is truly “up for grabs” during spring training from what I can discern.  That spot would be the 5th starter in the M’s five...

Seattle Mariners preview: games 7-12

With our predictions for games 1-6 made, we move on to games 7-12.

After leaving Oakland, the Mariners face off against the Los Angeles Dodgers for a three-game stint in famed Dodger Stadium...

Congratulations to the Seattle Mariners, the Laureates of Loyalty. They've done it again!Last year, right around now, they unveiled unto Robbie Cano the Ten-Year-Pact - a contract so ridiculously odious that not even the Yankees, generally the gold standard for long term mistakes, decided not to top it.This year, Seattle sat in a corner and pretended to read "Gravity's Rainbow,"...

Former Sox Wily Mo Pena Turns 33 Today

Wily Mo PenaIt's hard to believe that Wily Mo Pena is just 33 years old. He first came to the majors at age 20 back in 2002 with the Cincinnati Reds.

Seattle Mariners rumors: Come home, Ichiro

There are several hidden lessons to be learned from the likes of Jim Harbaugh and LeBron James. One of those lessons is quite simple: You can go home again. Whether it’s the Michigan football program, the blue-collar abode of Cleveland, Ohio or the friendly confines of Safeco Field, the lesson remains the same. The same lesson applies to former Seattle Mariners outfielder Ichiro...

Are the 2015 Seattle Mariners A Complete Team?

Who Are The Starting 25 For The M’s? The Seattle Mariners’ 2015 roster is pretty well dialed in.  I think they are done acquiring players that have a chance to make the 25 man roster.  Maybe they make a move for an aging vet or two and give them minor league deals with spring training invites but I think we’ve seen what we are going to see. The question now becomes– ...

Cubs Acquire Dutch Pitching Prospect from Mariners

A month after trading Justin Ruggiano to the Seattle Mariners for pitching prospect Matt Brazis, the Cubs made another move with the Mariners this time for a pitching prospect from the Netherlands. The Cubs sent left-hander Mike Kickham to Seattle in exchange for 21 year old right-hander Lars Huijer. From the mean streets of Haarlem, Netherlands (ok, probably not that mean), Huijer...

Seattle Mariners Positioned as Early Favorites in AL West

In 2014 the Seattle Mariners notched 87 wins, their highest total since 2009. It marked a 16 game improvement on the previous season. Still, the Mariners were unable to end their playoff drought, which has continued since they won an MLB record 116 games in 2001. Going into 2015, the Mariners look like the favorites in the American League West. The Mariners aren’t short on star...

Why Edgar Martinez Deserves To Be In The Baseball Hall Of Fame

The road to Cooperstown has not been an easy one for former Seattle Mariners slugger Edgar Martinez. His Hall of Fame votes have dipped the last few years, and the fact that a player can only be on the ballot for 10 years warrants a bit of concern. But he could be getting a much needed shoutout from a former teammate of his to help boost his Hall of Fame appeal. Amid Randy Johnson’s...

The Seattle Mariners Right Field Platoon – Both Productive And Economical

Just before the New Year, the Seattle Mariners acquired outfielder Seth Smith from the San Diego Padres for relief pitcher Brandon Mauer. The left handed hitting Smith will, more than likely, share a right field platoon with the right handed hitting Justin Ruggiano, who was also recently acquired from the Chicago Cubs. While fans often don’t think of platoon signings as being as...

A Brief Note about Seth Smith

The Padres didn’t need Seth Smith, and traded him to the Mariners. The Mariners are getting themselves a nice little hitter, especially against right-handed pitching. Jeff will likely have more on Brandon Maurer, who was the Padres’ return for Smith, in the next couple of days, but until then I wanted to type up a […]
