NWSB Writer and Seattle Mariners Insider breaks down the M’s off season moves so far and what likely lies ahead for their roster. Seriously, if you won’t trade Walker or Paxton for Kemp or Upton why would you give either of them up for Zobrist? It makes no sense to make this deal if you are the Mariners unless the price is significantly less than giving up Walker or Paxton.
NWSB Writer and Seattle Seahawks Insider gives us his preview of the Seahawks’ final regular season game of 2014 against the Rams. The Seahawk’s offensive line was better last week. I’m not saying they look like a pro bowl unit or anything but they did play better last week against a good Arizona blitzing defense than they did two weeks ago against a fading 49ers defense.
NWSB Writer and Seattle Seahawks Insider Brian Scott gives us his takeaways from the Seahawks decisive victory over the Arizona Cardinals. Had this run occurred in Seattle I have no doubt that UW would have been registering seismic activity coming from Century Link yet again. Instead, this run silenced what had been a boisterous Cardinal crowd. Lynch finished with 113 yards, two touchdowns on just 10 carries.
NWSB Writer and Seattle Seahawks Insider Brian Scott gives us his watch list of the Seahawks upcoming showdown with the Arizona Cardinals. This is a very odd situation to say the least. I can’t remember seeing a 3rd string QB start for any team in a game this big, ever. Fortunately, Lindley does have some playing time in his career so we can get a small sample of what he can and cannot do as an NFL quarterback.
NWSB Writer and Seattle Mariners Insider Brian Scott gives us the latest on the M’s search for a right fielder. I really think that filling this role from within is exactly where this right field situation is headed for the Mariners. The good news is that they do have options, options that I prefer to signing a guy who is finished, or over paying for a guy who is not, via trade.
NWSB Writer and Seattle Seahawks Insider Brian Scott gives us his breakdown of the Seahawks home victory over the 49ers. I never like it when the officiating gets in the way of a big rivalry game like this. While the Seahawks got a TD instead of a chip shot FG thanks to that bad call I still don’t think that call changed the game’s outcome. The 49ers never scored again in multiple attempts after that play.
NWSB Writer and Seattle Seahawks Insider Brian Scott takes a look at the the Seahawks key meeting at home with their division foe, the San Francisco 49ers. The only thing missing in this matchup is that the game means less to the 49ers than it does the Seahawks in terms of their own playoff contention. I guarantee you that the 49ers would love nothing better than to come into Century Link and mess up Seattle’s playoff plans.
NWSB Writer and Seattle Mariners Insider Brian Scott takes a look at the M’s next potential acquisition, Melky Cabrera. Next up for big Jack appears to be Melky Cabrera. While nothing official has been reported or announced, Cabrera would be a great fit in the M’s new-look batting order while playing right field. Will the M’s stop there?
NWSB Writer and Seattle Seahawks Insider Brian Scott gives us his takeaways from the Seahawks big win on the road in Philly– Only two things fans do really tick me off. One is throwing things on the field or at players. The other is booing (or cheering) an opposing player going down to injury. Great games by Russell Wilson, Doug Baldwin and Richard Sherman in this one.
NWSB Writer and Seattle Seahawks Insider Brian Scott gives us his preview of the Seahawks big game in Philadelphia. Will the Eagle no huddle cause problems? The Seahawks like to rotate their defensive line for different situations, ie run vs. pass. They also change things up in terms of bringing in an extra DB or two in passing situations. The Eagle offense might not allow for those changes.
NWSB Writer and Seattle Mariners Insider Brian Scott breaks down the free agent signing of Nelson Cruz. While Cruz’s numbers .271/.333./.525 with those 40 dingers and 108 runs driven in certainly look shiny he does come with concerns and only a fool wouldn’t take them at least a little bit seriously.
NWSB Writer and Seattle Seahawks Insider Brian Scott breaks down the Seahawks big win against the 49ers. The Seahawks won, but penalties persist. I get that the Seahawks play a style of defense that is going to lead to defensive holding calls, illegal contact and defensive pass interference a bit more than other teams. I can live with that. What I have a hard time with is the fact that most of these penalties are not amongst those three varieties.
