M’s Skipper Lloyd McClendon mid-season report card

NWSB Insider and Seattle Mariners blogger Brian Scott weighs in at the halfway point of the 2014 MLB Season on M’s skipper Lloyd McClendon. Brian thinks it’s time we pay some attention to the skipper, the moves he’s made and the other decisions that surround his role on the club and give him some praise and scrutiny where both are deserved.

Should The Seattle Mariners trade Ackley And Walker?

NWSB Blogger and Seattle Mariners insider Brian Scott weighs in on the M’s trade deadline situation. In 2014 the Mariners have an 11-15 record in games decided by just one run. They have also been shut out 11 times on the season and we aren’t even through July. Brian says Tampa is shopping David Price and Ben Zobrist, and asks should the M’s trade Taijuan Walker & Dustin Ackley?

Targeting A Trade – Seattle Mariners Looking For Bats

NWSB Blogger and Seattle Mariners insider Brian Scott says the M’s need a bat. He knows it. We all know it. The Seattle Mariner’s offense continues to be streaky. For a couple nights it looks as if they are crossing a line and hitting consistently then we go right back to where we started and they get shutout again. Will Brad Miller, Cory Hart, & Dustin Ackley please stand up?

Who Gets The Honor Of Taking The Mound At Target Field First For The AL?

NWSB Insider and Seattle Mariners blogger Brian Scott weighs in on Felix Hernandez starting in the 2014 MLB All Star Game. Describing the race for the right to start the All-Star game as “tight” might be something of an understatement. Both Hernandez and Masahiro Tanaka have made a clear separation from the rest of the group.

Kyle Seager

Is the Seattle Mariners’ Kyle Seager an All-Star?

NWSB Insider and Seattle Mariners blogger Brian Scott weighs in on the chances of Kyle Seager being a 2014 AL All Star. Robinson Cano has been in the top five in hitting numbers for some time and is certain to make the team. Felix Hernandez might be having the best season of his career and will make the team as well. Does the never vocal, Mariners 3rd baseman have a shot at this year’s Summertime Classic?

4 Players Ready But Is There Room? The beginning of the week began with a bang for the Seattle Mariners as they made chopped clams out of the defending World Champion Boston Red Sox.  At the same time, however, several of their key players were down in Tacoma proving that they were healthy and ready […]

Run Support for the King?  It’s Inconsistent At Best

NWSB Insider and Seattle Mariners Blogger Brian Scott breaks down the performance of Ms pitcher Felix Hernandez. Watching Seattle Mariners’ ace Felix Hernandez pitch is an absolute joy.

Trade Talk: Are The Seattle Mariners Buyers Or Sellers In 2014?

NWSB Mariners blogger Brian Scott weighs in on the MLB trade rumors and gossip surrounding the 2014 Seattle Mariners season. Some possible names? Infielders of course. Neither Brad Miller or Nick Franklin have been able to seize the opportunity and take ownership of the spot. Both have batted well below .200 on the season and that’s just not going to work long term.

Cheeseburgers, Pizzas, And Candy Bars, Oh My!

NWSB Insider and Seattle Mariners blogger Brian Scott breaks Justin Smoak on the DL and struggling with a sore quad muscle — and Corey Hart already there. It was easy to understand why the Seattle Mariners made two of their more recent roster moves in bringing up Logan Morrison and Jesus Montero.

Hello Seattle?  Wooden Bats? Leather Gloves? Does That Ring A Bell?

NWSB Insider and Seattle Mariners Blogger Brian Scott writes a letter to M’s fans pleading for everyone to show up to Safeco Field. In a recent stint against the New York Yankees, the team from the Pacific Northwest, saw its own fans cheer for the enemy. Robinson Cano has been the real deal, Kyle Seager has been whacking the ball around too and even some kid named Cole Gillespie has been raking it as of late. Plenty of reasons to cheer.
