Robinson Cano Mariners

My top 5 2013 Seattle Mariners pet peeves

Michael Saunders

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.

Looking Back: Astros vs. Mariners review

Does Taijuan Walker remain a Mariner in 2014?

NWSB Editor and Insider Chris Anderson talks about Seattle’s series against the Houston Astros and how it ended up in a disappointing home sweep. Playing the last-place team in the AL West and a team they should have been able to handle easily, the Mariners were outmatched by Houston’s bats and they just couldn’t get anything going on the offensive side of the ball. Seattle now travels to St. Louis to take on the Cardinals.

Projecting the 2014 Seattle Mariners’ opening day lineup

Miller has done well in his first stint with the club. Expect him to fill the two-hole next year.

NWSB Insider and Seattle Mariners’ blogger Brian Scott gives you his prediction for what Seattle’s 2014 lineup will look like. With a plethora of youth already up with the club, Seattle returns a bevy of starters in 2014 but does have a need to pursue a DH in free agency as Kendrys Morales and Raul Ibanez don’t seem like realistic options for the position next season.

Who is the next youngster coming up in September?

Brand new NWSB Insider and Seattle Mariners’ blogger Brian Scott takes a look at the top 3 players on his radar to get the call up come September. Carlos Peguaro, Abraham Almonte and the young phenom himself, Taijuan Walker.

Time to buy or sell? Decision time for big Jack

Dustin Ackley

Brand new NWSB Insider and Seattle Mariners’ blogger Brian Scott breaks down the reasons that Jack Z must move Dustin Ackley at the MLB Trade Deadline. Brian says tell him to pack his bags and shave that beard. It’s time for a fresh start. He deserves it and it’s time for the Mariners to move on. AAA won’t do either. You have a log jam of outfielders named Stefen Romero, Carlos Peguero and Abraham Almonte. Decisions, Decisions.
