Potential players for Mariners after 2012 Winter Meetings

Michael Bourn Atlanta

NWSB Insider and Seattle Mariners’ blogger Jeff Budke talks about five potential players that could soon be on the Mariners’ roster. This list includes some ideas that will probably have changed by press time, and is ignoring the Jason Bay deal to Seattle that seems imminent according to Geoff Baker of The Seattle Times. Could we be seeing Jason Hamilton, Michael Bourn, and Justin Upton coming into Sea-town as well?

What the Mariners can expect from the Robert Andino move

Trayvon Robinson

NWSB Insider and Seattle Mariners blogger Danny Ferguson is back this week to analyze the trade between the M’s and the O’s involving Trayvon Robinson & Robert Andino. He points out the good thing about Andino is that he can play multiple positions, he seems comfortable starting as well as working off the bench. His career batting average is .235, which is decent for a backup infielder role.

MLB Offseason: Seattle Mariners free agent possibilities for 2013

Josh Hamilton Big Bat

NWSB Insider and Seattle Mariners blogger Ben Tole weighs in on who would be a decent fit from the 2013 free-agent class. After a 75-win season, we saw some obvious improvement with this young Seattle Mariners team. But there is still plenty of work to be done with this roster before the Mariners are going to make a run at the post season. Josh Hamilton, Nick Swisher, BJ Upton, and Melky Cabrera are all possibilities.

Hey Seattle Mariners fans! Could it be our time?

Michael Saunders Mariners Profile

NWSB Insider and Seattle Mariners blogger Jared Galde tells us a little bit about the feelings he’s feeling for the 2012 M’s. He doesn’t have delusions that we somehow have Ken Griffey Jr. in his prime, Edgar Martinez, Jay Buhner and the gang in ’95 or even close to that level of talent but the 2012 Mariners are officially rolling. Stephen Pryor, Felix Hernandez, Michael Saunders and newcomer Eric Thames are contributing bigtime.

Cleveland Indians vs. Mariners: MLB baseball love ‘em & hate ‘em game 2

Safeco

NWSB Insider and Seattle Mariners blogger Jonathan Irwin reports on the second game of the series versus the Cleveland Indians. The Headline: timely offense and a Felix Hernandez gem were all the Mariner’s needed for this win. Following his perfect game, Hernandez pitched like a Cy Young winner. A Jesus Montero 3-run homer sealed the deal for this M’s win. It was a “Montero Mash” that’s for sure.

NWSB Insider and Seattle Mariners blogger Clinton Bell weighs in with another M’s Week That Was. Intended to be a fun column, with lots of laughs and other good stuff. Normally it will be a top 10 list, a la David Letterman style. The week started off with a sweep. The Mariners did find a way to win two in LA. Jason Vargas was back to his winning ways. Remember when the M’s traded for Jesus Montero and Hector Noesi?

NWSB Insider and Seattle Mariners blogger Clinton Bell weighs in with another M’s Week That Was. Intended to be a fun column, with lots of laughs and other good stuff. Normally it will be a top 10 list, a la David Letterman style. The week started off with a sweep, and ended with a loss in New York. Felix Hernandez was once again brilliant, same with Iwukuma on his first win. Eric Thames homers off old team in first game with Mariners.

Mariners vs. Kansas City Royals: MLB baseball love ‘em & hate ‘em Game 4

Felix Hernandez

NWSB Insider and Seattle Mariners blogger Jonathan Irwin reports on the fourth game of the series versus the Kansas City Royals. The Headline: Jesus Montero goes deep and Felix Hernandez pitches a gem as the Mariners win the series. With the July 31st trade deadline fast approaching, the Mariner’s have been suspiciously quiet. Is Jason Vargas, Brandon League or Tom Wilhelmsen on the block?

State of the Mariners – weekly notebook | July 2nd

Mariners insider Danny Ferguson brings us the Weekly Seattle Mariners notebook. This week Franklin Gutierrez was placed on the 7 day disabled list and Steve Delabar was promoted to take the roster spot. This gives the M’s fewer options off the bench for the next week. The All star game is close. Felix Hernandez is the only guy going. Lets hope the 4 days off will be a good breath of fresh air for the struggling team.

Oakland Athletics vs. Mariners: MLB baseball love ‘em & hate ‘em Game 2

Wells scores with the 3rd run of the game on a SWEET hit by the suddenly hot at the plate Brendan Ryan.

NWSB Insider and Seattle Mariners blogger Jonathan Irwin reports on the second and final game of the series versus the Oakland Athletics. Isn’t it time for Kyle Seager and Justin Smoak to proove they can hit at Safeco? This is getting ridiculous isn’t it? Another save for the bartender Tom Wilhelmsen. Brandon League didn’t give up any runs, he did allow 2 hits in 0.1 innings of work. Not impressive.

Mariners vs. Arizona Diamondbacks: MLB baseball love ‘em & hate ‘em Game 2

Ichiro

NWSB Insider and Seattle Mariners blogger Jonathan Irwin reports on the second M’s game of the interleague series versus the Arizona Diamondbacks. Erasmo Ramirez didn’t even make it through the fifth, four innings on 78 pitches. However the Mariner bullpen has been incredibly solid through June. Tom Wilhelmsen, Charlie Furbush were fantastic. Ichiro (hit 2500) and Casper Wells were hero’s.
