MARINERS RUMORS & GOSSIP

Seattle Mariners’ offense struggles again

The Seattle Mariners got off to a sizzling start, owning first place in the A.L. West after a win over Oakland last Friday.  But, what a difference a week makes.  Seattle fell to under .500 for the first time this season after dropping three out of four games to the Texas Rangers.  With all the questions about starting pitching and the murderous early season schedule, this is...

Seattle Mariners at Miami Marlins series primer

Unfamiliar foes will square off in a three-game weekend set at Marlins Park. The Mariners and Marlins have played each other just nine times, with the club from the Pacific Northwest owning a 5-4 advantage. The teams last met in 2011 at Safeco Field where the Mariners won two of three. The Marlins -- oddly enough -- were the home team, playing 3,300 miles from home because of a venue...

Idiot Rangers fan storms field, flashes thumbs up before he’s tackled (pics/vid)

A fan with more bravado than brains briefly interrupted the Texas Rangers-Seattle Mariners game at Globe Life Park in the seventh inning on Wednesday night. The moronic field invader did manage to execute a pretty amusing “thumbs-up” pose before being tackled by security. Well played, idiot guy. But this is what happened to him shortly […] The post Idiot Rangers fan storms...

Seattle Mariners offense off to streaky start

Mariner Runs Come Feast or Famine The Seattle Mariners are off to a reasonably good start at 7-6.  I use the term “reasonably good” because while I’m sure you’d like to see them at 13-0 I think you have to consider this a team that has been above the .500 level since 2009 when they won 85 games. Major League Baseball is not like the NFL.  MLB teams can’t turn around a...

Mariners offered Morales multi-year deal in 2013, it was declined

Caterwauling about the Seattle Mariners’ offense reached its typical level Monday morning. The Mariners were shut out Sunday and shut down during three losses in the prior four games when they scored a run total. Seven runs in Texas on Monday night quelled some of the angst. Yet, a question was often repeated: What about Kendrys Morales? Morales is a free agent still available...

Seattle Mariners: Week in review

COOLING DOWN:  After winning their home opener, the Seattle Mariners have dropped three of their last four games.  Felix Hernandez’s third win of the season propped the Mariners back into first in the A.L. West for a day, but they now trail the A’s after dropping the final two games of that three game set.  Still, on the plus side, the Mariners have went 6-5 on a rough stretch...
