Martin's dogs are hungry

When Safeco became an off-leash area It's relatively difficult to find just exactly the point where this story begins. I'm, admittedly, having trouble contextualizing this season among the catalogue of Mariners Baseball that I have kept running since I was cognizant of the ball team down in SoDo. That collection of memories, of times both at Safeco and afar, contains some amazing...

Leonys Martin Stopped Being a Slap Hitter

I keep a little notebook next to my computer, so I can keep track of potential things to write about. Generally, topics break down into two categories: there are the topics that practically need to be written about, and there are the possible topics to monitor. Maybe those need bigger sample sizes; maybe those just need to become more interesting. Some of those topics turn into posts...

Robinson Cano is trucking along right where he left off

He's a big part of the Mariners' AL West lead. After a rough start to his 2015, Robinson Cano heated up in the second half of the season to put up a 157 wRC+. That has changed very little in 2016 -- Cano has put up a 151 wRC+ to start this year. What Cano is including now much more is power. Cano's .271 ISO would be the highest of his career should the season end now. Of course...

Taylor commits 2 errors, A's pull away from Mariners 5-0

SEATTLE (AP) Taijuan Walker made one bad pitch. Chris Taylor's two bad throws were even more costly for the Seattle Mariners. Walker was excellent until giving up a leadoff homer in the seventh inning, Taylor's two errors led to four unearned runs in the eighth and the Mariners lost 5-0 to the Oakland Athletics on Monday night, ending Seattle's four-game winning streak. ''Taijuan...

Three reasons for the Seattle Mariners’ hot start

The Major League Baseball season is a quarter over already, and the Seattle Mariners find themselves not only on the right side of .500 but in first place in the A.L. West.  At 26-17, the Seattle Mariners are ½ game behind the Baltimore Orioles for the best record in the entire American League.  They’ve done it unusually by being monsters on the road.  The Mariners are the...

DPD: Walker, Tillman; a Limited Selection

We got a bit of a late start today, but it’s also an awfully thin group to select from on this baseball Wednesday. Check ’em out! Aces in Isolation Taijuan Walker (SEA) versus Baltimore’s Chris Tillman Of course we profile Walker after he’s coming off allowing the most earned runs he has in a start this season, but he’s been the quintessential post-hype sleeper through...

Seattle Mariners: tough weekend is nothing to worry about

I was at all three games this weekend, so I experienced the first-hand pain of a sweep that featured two blown saves at home. It’s really easy to get caught up in every loss the Seattle Mariners endure over the upcoming months, but I’m here to calm your nerves. First of all, how great is it that this fanbase is actually disappointed by losing? For literally over a decade, losing...

Are things crumbling in Seattle?

The weekend was something else in Seattle. Coming into a 3-game series against the hapless Los Angeles Angels, things were looking great. Seattle was 4 games off of its 2001 record-setting wins pace. They had just swept Tampa and were looking to continue rolling. The first game was just rough across the board for Seattle. They carried a lead into the ninth and lights-out Steve Cishek...

How the Mariners Became AL West Favorites

This isn’t my own subjective interpretation. When you throw around a word like “favorites,” that opens the door to opinion-based writing, but I have numbers on my side. Sweet, sweet, precious numbers. Look at the following table. You have our preseason projected win totals, and our current projected win totals, which take into account everything that’s happened.

Taijuan Walker Has a New Weapon

When you’ve got a problem with command, your options seem obvious. You can clean up your mechanics, which is easier said then done. You can focus on throwing strike one. You can move on the rubber in order to move your heat map to a better spot. You can tinker with your fastball selection in case you have better command or outcomes with one of them. You can limit throwing a secondary...
