NWSB Insider and Seattle Mariners blogger Jonathan Irwin reports on the second M’s game of the interleague series versus the San Francisco Giants. These two must get hot. Kyle Seager and Justin Smoak blew up to begin June. They were both hitting really well, especially during the road trip to kick off the month. Great game by Brendan Ryan and Jesus Montero on Saturday.
NWSB insider Brandon Choate brings us a good read in the wake of a big trade by the Seattle Mariners. In acquiring catcher Jesus Montero from the Yankees, the Mariners can count on Montero’s youth, his bat and his potential to lure in free agents. Yes Seattle will miss Michael Pineda, but they’ll like Montero’s bat much more.
