AL Manager Of They Year?  Why not!

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.

Targeting A Trade – Seattle Mariners Looking For Bats

Brad Miller

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.

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.

It’s Back To Square 1 For The Mariners At Shortstop

Brad Miller

NWSB Blogger and Seattle Mariners insider Brian Scott weighs in on the M’s SS position today. It’s been a long time since spring training writes Brian. Less we forget that the M’s had an open competition at shortstop this spring between Nick Franklin and Brad Miller and both players made a strong case by having strong numbers during camp.

Who Are The 2014 Mariners’ Potential All-Stars?

Robinson Cano

Need a suggestion for a 2014 Seattle Mariners all star? Defensively, Robinson Cano has been everything you could ever want at 2nd base. He makes all the routine plays, makes difficult plays look easy and throws in a dazzling play here and there too. Cano has recorded just two errors on the season.

NWSB Writer and Seattle Mariners Blogger Brian Scott brings us up to speed on Nick Franklin and the situation brewing at short stop. Brad Miller is not a typical DH player, but his struggles could be the excuse the Ms need to bring Franklin in on a full-time basis.

Mariners’ Bats Struggle At The Top Of The Lineup

Michael Saunders

Almonte Sent out, Lineup Shuffled Again Despite a relatively potent punch in Robinson Cano and Corey Hart batting in the 3 and 4 holes respectively, the Seattle Mariners have continued to struggle getting guys on base in front of those two guys consistently. Centerfielder Abraham Almonte, had been batting in the leadoff spot the vast […]

Seattle Mariners minor league players prospects report

Taylor is not on the 40 man roster

Do the M’s have more talent ready to come up?

Seattle Mariners 2014, 3 Week Pitching Report

I think the best is yet to come in 2014.

The Hits Just Keep On Coming The news on the pitching front continues to worsen for the Seattle Mariners who seem lost at sea in the midst of an eight game losing streak.  Injuries, youth, defensive miscues, and flat out incompetence have all contributed to the mess the M’s hurlers find themselves currently in.

The Seattle Mariners Run Aground For 8th Straight Loss

Jack Z, Cano, McClendon

Is it time to jump ship yet? After losing 6 games in a row to the Texas Rangers and Miami Marlins one would think that coming home, having ace hurler Felix Hernandez on the hill, and having the luxury of the abysmal hitting Houston Astros to punch around that the Seattle Mariners would snap out […]

Seattle Mariners offense off to streaky start

Smoak

Mariner Runs Come Feast or Famine The Seattle Mariners are off to a reasonably good start at 7-6.  I use the term “reasonably good” because while I’m sure you’d like to see them at 13-0 I think you have to consider this a team that has been above the .500 level since 2009 when they […]
