Throwing back to get back: Mariners born in the 70’s

NWSB Editor and Insider Chris Anderson talks about the five players on Seattle’s roster that were born in the 1970’s. Though it may not turn out to be this year (the Mariners are currently 10.5 games back in the AL West and still 8 games under .500), should Seattle keep a select few of the veteran players who are on the current roster, they could be back in the postseason in a year or two. Today we’ll look at Mariners who were born in the 70’s and their roles with Seattle moving forward.

Don’t give up on the 2013 Seattle Mariners

NWSB Insider and Seattle Mariners Blogger Jonas Hyde tells us why he doesn’t think a single one of us should write of the Mariners just yet. Even with an unstable rotation, and a lack of run scoring ability, these boys have some fight left in them. Plus, with all of the roster moves over the past month and a half, Jonas thinks the right players are finally in the right place. For starters Mike Zunino has replaced Jesus Montero, and will offer better defense and likely more at the plate.

Mariners expectations for the month of June

NWSB Insider and Seattle Mariners’ blogger gives you his M’s expectations for the month of June. It’s all about pitching. It is unreasonable to project that Felix Hernandez (5th in AL ERA) and Hisashi Iwakuma (2nd) will continue this torrid pace. Jeremy Bonderman will get the month to try to establish himself, but the Harang spot in the rotation may be up for grabs soon. Who will Tom Wilhelmsen be? The next Brandon League? Stay tuned.

Mariners recap: Series pitching vs. San Diego, Minnesota, Chicago

NWSB Insider and Seattle Mariners blogger Brandon Choate gives us his weekly M’s pitching breakdown in the arms under the spotlight segment. The 2 stars pitched like expected while the bullpen held the fate of the team in their hands way too many times this week. Steady Tom Wilhelmsen has become anything but steady while Carter Capps, his possible replacement has been doing his job quite effectively.

The Mariners will host the Chicago White Sox for a three-game series starting tonight before hosting the New York Yankees beginning on Thursday.

We’ll see if Bonderman and Harang can keep progressing as well.

Mariners absolutely dominate Padres 9-0 on Memorial Day

NWSB Insider and Seattle Mariners’ blogger Jeff Budke talks about the Seattle Mariners win over the San Diego Padres today. It would appear the M’s are feeling the positive vibes right now. Jesus Montero and Dustin Ackley have both gone down to AAA, in their place are Jesus Sucre, Nick Franklin, and Carlos Triunfel. They’ve won 2 in a row now. And are playing some great baseball. Go M’s, let’s get a winning streak going this time.

Mariners recap: Series pitching vs. NY, Cleveland, LA, Texas

NWSB Insider and Seattle Mariners blogger Brandon Choate gives us his weekly M’s pitching breakdown in the arms under the spotlight segment.

Mariners preview: Looking ahead to the next 5 matchups

NWSB Editor and Insider Chris Anderson looks ahead at the next five games for the Seattle Mariners. After stumbling against the Angels and the Rangers but getting a much-needed win yesterday, Seattle will take on the San Diego Padres for two games at home and on the road before wrapping up the month of May against the Twins in Minnesota. Hopefully Felix can get back in to prime form this week. Aaron Harang and Brandon Maurer will pitch.

Jesus Swap: And roster moves the Mariners will and should make

NWSB Editor and Insider Chris Anderson talks about the moving of Jesus Montero to AAA Tacoma and other roster moves the Mariners could make. The Mariners are now 20-27, 10 games behind the Texas Rangers, and in need of some changes. And it looks like we’ll get some very soon, as moves have been rumored in the past day that could really shuffle the big league lineup. A Jesus swap is taking place. Jesus Montero down to Tacoma, Jesus Sucre up to Seattle.

That said, let’s take a look at the next five games for the Mariners and how they can turn things around once again, as they face the Angels for a two game series before returning to Safeco Field for a big three-game series against the Rangers. Lets go Michael Morse & Justin Smoak!

Mariners recap: Series pitching vs. Toronto, Pittsburgh, Oakland

NWSB Insider and Seattle Mariners blogger Brandon Choate gives us his weekly M’s pitching breakdown in the arms under the spotlight segment. By far the biggest surprise is Yoervis Medina. Medina pitched 3.1 innings this week in 3 appearances. He only gave up a single hit and struck out 3 in the process. There isn’t much we can say about Felix Hernandez that hasn’t been said yet.

What can the Mariners do with back-end of rotation?

NWSB Editor and Insider Chris Anderson talks about Seattle’s woeful 3-4-5 in their starting rotation. As good as things have been going for the Mariners as of late, there is still a glaring error on the team that may prevent them from making a push and potentially surpassing the .500 mark in the coming weeks: the back-end of their five-man rotation. Whats in store for Aaron Harang, James Paxton, Danny Hultzen, Joe Saunders and others?
