Seattle Mariners: Heads will Roll, Medina and Olson to AAA Tacoma

Mariners manager Lloyd McClendon, tired of ineffectual bullpen performance demoted two relievers today: RHP Yoervis Medina and LHP Tyler Olson.   Medina in 12 innings has compiled 5 runs and a strikeout to walk ratio of 9:7.   Although he has a save, he has given up 11 hits and far too many base runners to stay on the squad. The rookie Olson, has looked shaky in his 13 innings...

After 24 games he is leading the Major League with 13 home runs putting him on pace for an incredible 87 home runs. He will not keep that pace of course, but at this point in the season it can be fun to speculate.No. 11 came Friday night in Houston when he launched a 469-foot blast that hit...

J.A. Happ — The Seattle Mariners Ace From Nowhere

Happ Still Not Fully Appreciated By M’s Fans It’s always interesting when a team’s fans fall in love with a particular player.  It happens quite often when you stop and think about it.  After it happens, that player can virtually do no wrong that will undo that love. Seattle loving a future HOF’r in Griffey makes sense, despite what he did. Take the Seattle Mariners...

Nelson Cruz hit a titanic, 483-foot blast in Mariners' win

New Seattle Mariners slugger Nelson Cruz probably wanted to commemorate his return to Arlington - and he did just that on Wednesday night, smashing a 483-foot home run deep into the night.  Witness the blast in all its glory:   The home run, hit against Texas Rangers left-hander Wandy Rodriguez, was the 19th in 22-year history of Globe Life Park to reach the Club Level, as mentioned...

Seattle Mariners: The effect of the top of the order

Austin Jackson, Seth Smith, and Justin Ruggiano have been the primary 1-2 hitters in the Seattle Mariners lineup. Jackson usually starts in center field, and while he primarily hits leadoff, he’s also been hitting from the #2 spot. Smith and Ruggiano usually split playing time as they operate in the platoon system, meaning that Smith (who bats left) generally starts against right...

Naturally, the fan had no chance of catching the ball, but he did manage to make it rain popcorn all over the nearby fans.What he should have been doing was trying to catch the ball with the...

Room For Improvement – The Seattle Mariners After 15 Games

Fifteen games down, 147 to go. I wrote something similar last season when the Seattle Mariners got off to a slow start in April. Had the Mariners gone 6-9 in any stretch during, say, mid June, no one would even notice. But the freshness of the season and the high expectations surrounding this ball club this year magnifies the early issues scoring runs and the surprisingly poor pitching...

What In The World Is Wrong With The Seattle Mariners?

Don’t Hit The Panic Button Just Yet The Seattle Mariners are taking a much needed home off day today to re-think their efforts in the first two weeks or so of the season.  After 15 games the Mariners are in last place in the AL West with a not so pretty record of 6-9.   That record leaves many wondering if the Mariners really are the contenders everyone predicted they would...

Seattle Mariners: Starting rotation blues

It’s been a sluggish start to the season for the Seattle Mariners, coming out of the gates at 5-8.  For a team with high expectations in the preseason, it’s a little surprising.  What’s more surprising though than the slow start is the performance of the starting rotation.  Going into the third week of the season, only one starter has won a game.  Felix Hernandez, who has...

Checking in With James Paxton

Coming into the season, you might have had a three-part checklist for Mariners’ lefty James Paxton. Can he throw more high fastballs, can he improve his changeup, and can he hold his velocity and command? We know his curve is good, and most years, he has the big velocity that has turned our attention to […]

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...
