Mariners' Iwakuma staying optimistic despite lat strain

The Seattle Mariners will be without starter Hisashi Iwakuma for a few weeks, as the right-hander was placed on the 15-day disabled list on Saturday. Despite the setback, which the team expects will keep Iwakuma out approximately 2-4 weeks, the pitcher is maintaining a positive outlook.As he told Adam Lewis of far in 2015, Iwakuma hasn't exactly been the pitcher he was...

Mariners fan throws popcorn bucket at foul ball, hilarity ensues (GIF)

A Seattle Mariners fan made an embarrassing attempt to knock a foul ball out of the air by tossing a bucket of popcorn at it during the seventh inning of Saturday's game against Minnesota. 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...

Seattle Mariners Prospect Profile: Austin Wilson

If you read through my game notes (click her to view) that I took when I attended the Stockton Ports (Oakland A’s Single-A affiliate) v. Bakersfield Blaze (Seattle Mariners Single-A affiliate) game on Wednesday night, you will see that I started to talk about a prospect on the Blaze that I came away rather impressed by.  His name is Austin Wilson, and he’s an outfielder who...

Iwakuma, who turned 34 last week, has started in three games this year so far and is 0-1 with a 6.61 ERA. The Tokyo native was set to pitch Sunday and...

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...

Buy or sell on the Seattle Mariners’ trends

As the Seattle Mariners enter the off-day, they currently sit at 6-9, two games out of first place. There have been many trends so far this season, and some trends are bound to continue, while others won’t. Let’s analyze which trends I believe will and won’t keep up. The Mariners need the 2014 version of Danny Farquhar The subpar bullpen The Mariners’ bullpen has been...

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 […]

Seattle Mariners: The Fernando Rodney experiment continues

Despite a great 2014 campaign, Seattle Mariners closer Fernando Rodney has experienced some struggles to start off the 2015 season. Through five appearances, Rodney has posted an ERA of 12.46 and a WHIP of 2.54. These numbers are appalling for somebody who is usually near the top of the league in saves. His first blown save was against Oakland on April 12th. Felix Hernandez had pitched...

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...

The Much Too Early Seattle Mariners 2015 Report Card

Are McClendon’s Bunch Who We Thought? With roughly a week’s worth of baseball in the books for the 2015 Seattle Mariners, I think it’s far, far too early to be judging their performances.  After all, there is a reason why all the good stats end with the words average or percentage. You have batting average, earned run average, on-base percentage and so on.  Those numbers...

Mariners' Cruz extends homer streak to five straight games

  Nelson Cruz has homered in a career-best fifth straight game for the Seattle Mariners. Cruz, who signed a four-year, $47 million, contract with the Mariners in December after hitting a career-high 40 homers last season for Baltimore, drove a 1-1 pitch from Brett Anderson to right-center field in the fourth inning of Wednesday night's game against the Dodgers.

Milton Bradley once texted his wife’s father video of the couple having sex

Former MLB outfielder Milton Bradley is a twisted individual.

Kyle Seager Can Lead The Seattle Mariners To The Postseason

In 2009, the Seattle Mariners selected Dustin Ackley with the second overall pick in the MLB draft.  Looking back with the benefit of hindsight, one could question the logic of selecting Ackley ahead of arguably the best player in baseball, a 5-tool stud in Mike Trout. But that would be unfair. Several teams passed on Trout before he eventually went to the Anaheim Angels with the...
