NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks blogger Brian Scott tells us today the 2013 Seattle Seahawk team is doing something this year that they did not do last year. Especially when you compare it to the 2nd half of last year’s team. That Brian points out is dangerous. The pressure will be on Kam Chancellor, Earl Thomas, Richard Sherman, Brandon Browner, Walter Thurmond III and Byron Maxwell this week vs. Roddy White, Matt Ryan, Tony Gonzales & the Falcons.
NWSB Insider and Seattle Mariners’ blogger Brian Scott gives you five players he would like to eliminate from the history of the Seattle Mariners. Bobby Ayala, Heathcliff Slocumb, Jeff Cirillo, Chone Figgins, and the infamous Alex Fraudriguez all make this list. While their years in Seattle weren’t the best, perhaps its best to remember the fact they are no longer with the squad and are all a distant memory in Mariners history.
NWSB Insider and Seattle Mariners blogger Brian Scott weighs in today with a great post about the long standing suffering us fans have had to endure regarding the backstop in Seattle. After the departure of long time fan fave Dan Wilson, the Mariners haven’t been too lucky with catchers. That time is supposed to be in the past with two “future” catcher on the roster in Mike Zunino and Jesus Montero, but it is still uncertain if either of them will be with the big league club come April of next year.
NWSB Insider and Seattle Mariners blogger Brian Scott weighs in today with a great post on the Legend that IS King Felix Hernandez. The all world pitcher for the M’s. Brian begs the question. Imagine David Ortiz in the lineup everyday for Seattle, Randy Johnson as your ace, Jason Varitek catching, Alex Rodriguez at short, and Adam Jones in center… Felix became a legend when he signed a 7 year, 175 million dollar contract to stay in Seattle .
NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks blogger Brian Scott tells us today that all signs pointed toward former starting full back Michael Robinson returning to the Seattle Seahawks this week, and that’s just what happened. In uniform and on the field Michael Robinson is a proven full back with all the skills you could ask for in a guy that plays that position. Robinson is a great lead blocker for Marshawn Lynch. Backup fullback Spencer Ware has landed on IR. Percy Harvin comes back soon too.
NWSB Insider and Seattle Mariners Blogger Brian Scott gives us his Kendrys Morales reasonable expectations checklist today. Brian asks is Jack Zduriencik really going to cough up the 4 or 5 year deal for $15 million a season that Scott Boras is likely seeking for his client? If the M’s do commit that kind of money, Brian says that’s a bad return on your dollars given what Kendrys brings to the table as a player.
NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks Blogger Brian Scott gives us his take on the return of all-star WR Percy Harvin to the Seahawks lineup in the not-so-distant future. How will Harvin’s return effect Jermaine Kearse? Kearse is currently Seattle’s #4 WR. He’s also been picking up the bulk of the kickoff return duties. Kearse in a limited amount of playing time has 7 catches for 111 yards. By adding Harvin to the roster the Seahawks will have to drop a name from the roster. Who do they drop?
NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks Blogger Brian Scott gives us five players to watch who have not played their best games so far during the 2013-14 season. Starting at receiver, Sidney Rice has only caught for 10 catches for 146 yards and two Touchdowns. Golden Tate must also step up, but in special teams. Derrick Coleman, Kellen Davis and Paul McQuistan also make the list.
NWSB Insider and Seattle Mariners Blogger Brian Scott gives us two players who are poised to break out during the 2014 MLB season. The Freak from Goose Creek (Justin Smoak) came to the Mariners in 2010 when the team dealt co-ace Cliff Lee to the Texas Rangers. Kyle Cease was once known as “the other guy” alongside Dustin Ackley, but now he has a chance to make a name for himself. Could we see Jacoby Ellsbury in our future?
NWSB Insider and Seattle Mariners Blogger Brian Scott breaks down which pitchers stood out for the team during 2013. Although Felix Hernandez garners most of the attention, Hisashi Iwakuma and James Paxton caught Scott’s eye. Scott believes that if there were such thing as a team Cy Young award, Hisashi Iwakuma would deserve it. Paxton also performed well despite playing in just three games.
NWSB Insider and Seattle Mariners Blogger Brian Scott gives us his five pet peeves from the season that was. Howard Lincoln’s blunders are No. 1 — all of his blunders. Also making the list is a lack of bold deadline moves, a lack of steals despite Michael Saunders, Dustin Ackley, Nick Franklin, Brad Miller, and Abraham Almonte all having speed and Robby Thompson’s brain fade.
NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks Blogger Brian Scott gives us his take today on how Pete Carroll and the 2013 Hawks coaching staff are doing on gamedays. This past week in Indianapolis we saw several coaching mistakes, and being the nice guys we are here at NWSB we’re doing to point them out. We don’t care how good you think Russell Wilson and Marshawn Lynch are…plus as far as the blocked field goal goes, that one was on Steven Hauschka.
