NWSB Insider and Seattle Mariners Blogger Clinton Bell is back with an in depth piece about the top two free agent candidates the Mariners are looking at in terms of starting pitching. Ervin Santana or Chris Capuano? Capuano is the latest player to drop his name into the hat of Jack Z, but he may not be the best candidate.

For a Seattle Seahawks Super Bowl repeat we need…

JohnandPete

Seattle Seahawks blogger Clinton Bell is back with a list of things he thinks are important for the Seahawks to accomplish if they want to repeat as Super Bowl champions next year. First and foremost Clinton thinks Pete Carroll needs to keep up with his fun nature and winning attitude in Seattle. Re-signing key free agents is a must, as well as trimming some payroll and restructuring some contracts in order to do so. The Seahawks are in good shape, and with a few little tweeks, this team could be the next New England Patriots.

Moments in time…The Seattle Seahawks week that was

buccaneers-seahawks-football-golden-tate_pg_600

NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks blogger Clinton Bell weighs in with his weekly Hawks week that was piece. Tough win eh? Again the Seahawks went to the brink against a far inferior team, only to come away with another W. These close games aren’t as fun as people say they are. Russell Wilson led the charge once again and Marshawn Lynch had a beastly game on the ground. Jermaine Kearse fumbled, but made up for it with a nice TD grab…

NFL-SEAHAWKS-RAMS

NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks blogger Clinton Bell weighs in with his weekly Hawks week that was piece. Tough win eh? If it wasn’t bad enough that our O line couldn’t protect our stars, the D line seemed to be just as bad. The Rams did whatever they wanted on the ground to the Hawks all game long, except when it counted. Russell Wilson ran for his life. Golden Tate taunted his way to a huge TD. Paul McQuistan couldn’t block anyone…

tempRM1_9769-2--nfl_mezz_1280_1024

Seattle Seahawks blogger Clinton Bell is back with his seventh Seahawks Moments In Time piece of the 2013 season. Another win on the road, and this one was a lot more decisive than the score portrayed. Wilson looked like the magician he is once again, and the D-line tore it up by getting 7 sacks. Brandon Browner almost took it to the promised land but tripped up on a patch of uncut grass, I think. And, the 12th man was out in full force in hostile territory…

Seattle Seahawks blogger Clinton Bell is back with his sixth Seahawks Moments In Time piece of the 2013 season. Back in the winning column after their close victory over the Tennessee Titans. This game wasn’t too pretty, but a win is a win and that’s all that counts in the NFL. Marshawn Lynch led the way with two TDs, and Steven Hauschka showed us all just how important he really is.

My oh My! Top 10 moments from the 2013 Seattle Mariners season

Seattle Mariners v Cleveland Indians

NWSB Insider and Seattle Mariners blogger Clinton Bell brings us his top ten “My oh My” moments from the 2013 season. From the hot start in spring, to the promise of the future, the M’s had a roller coaster season for sure, again. And now with the need to fill the captain of the ship once again, the M’s may be staying closer to the bottom of the AL West than the top. Hisashi Iwakuma and his stellar play is focused on, as is Tom Wilhelmsen losing his closer role to Danny Farquhar.

hi-res-7729784_crop_650

Seattle Seahawks blogger Clinton Bell is back with his fifth Seahawks Moments In Time piece of the 2013 season. The rode into Indy on their high horse, and came out a bit more humbled than they were before. The Seahawks finally lost their first game in 2013, and it wasn’t due to their lack of trying, this shoot out was everything the hype promised it would be. A tough game against a very strong opponent. Russell Wilson vs. Andrew Luck was everything and then some.
