Touch Decisions For McClendon Should M’s Make Postseason

Roenis Elias

Brian Scott our NWSB insider and Seattle Mariners blogger weighs in with some predictions for the M’s should they make the postseason in MLB. The need for a 5th starter just doesn’t happen in the post season. With Roenis Elias shutdown for the rest of the year anyway and Taijuan Walker much too green to pitch in the post season it really doesn’t make sense to move him to the pen.

Decision Time: Projecting the Seattle Mariner’s 25 Man Roster for 2014

Jack Z, Cano, McClendon

Tough calls for McClendon coming in just over a week. I think it’s fair to say that there has been more intrigue in this year’s Seattle Mariner’s Spring Training Camp than any other for some time.  With 2 starting positions up for grabs and a plethora of rotation spots to fill, some decisions will be […]

Seattle Mariners winter meetings and roster review

Robinson Cano Mariners

NWSB Insider and Seattle Mariners Blogger Brian Scott breaks down the team’s roster after the 2014 Winter Meetings. Nice additions in Logan Morrison, Willie Bloomquist, Robinson Cano, and Corey Hart. Here’s the biggest weakness remaining with the Seattle Mariners for the 2014 season. The Bullpen. Yoervis Medina, Charlie Furbush, Tom Wilhelmsen, and Steven Pryor. The pressure is on.

Medina quickly stepping into new role for the M’s

NWSB Editor and Insider Chris Anderson talks about the Mariners’ bullpen and how Yoervis Medina figures into its future. Making his debut on April 16 against Detroit in an outing that saw him come in for 1 1/3 innings while surrendering no runs, he has been absolutely stellar since getting his first shot. Currently boasting a 2-2 record in 25 appearances with a 2.70 ERA, Medina looks like the closer of the future in Seattle, especially with the struggles of Tom Wilhelmsen and the rest of the crew.

My oh My! Top play of the week for the Seattle Mariners (video)

raul ibanez vs. Yankees

NWSB Insider and Seattle Mariners blogger Clinton Bell tells us to him the best “MY oh MY” play of the seventh week of the year had to be the two homerun game by Raul Ibanez against the Yankees. The M’s jumped out of the gate hot Wednesday night, probably a little peeved about the loss the night before. A 7 run first inning capped by a Ibanez grand slam started them off on the right foot. The M’s went on to win 12-2, but not before Raul connected for a 2-run shot in the 5th as well.

NWSB Insider and Seattle Mariners blogger Jeff Budke reports on the fifteenth game of the season versus the Detroit Tigers. The Tigers have a pretty impressive offensive lineup Jeff states, but he also says that the worst may not be here yet. He’s talking about the next two pitchers the M’s will face; Max Scherzer and Justin Verlander. Ex Mariner deck hand Doug Fister took it to the M’s Tuesday night, leaving the fans wondering why exactly Jack Z made that trade.

NWSB Insider and Seattle Mariners blogger Brandon Choate gives us his weekly M’s pitching breakdown in the arms under the spotlight segment. Felix Hernandez and Hisashi Iwakuma are pacing the other startes while Tom Wilhelmsen has been perfect in closingh situations. Kameron Loe and Brandon Maurer on the other hand would like to start this season over already. Loe is a Cub, now we get Aaron Harang, we’ll see how he does.

If Tom Wilhelmsen fades in second year with the Mariners…

Tom Wilhelmsen

NWSB Insider and Seattle Mariners’ blogger Jeff Budke talks about a situation that not many Seattle fans are hoping plays out–that of Tom Wilhelmsen going down the same path as Brandon League. However, should that happen, Mariners’ fans can feel rest assured that Seattle has the talent to at least get them through the season, especially with the arms of Carter Capps and Stephen Pryor on the roster.

Positives and negatives of the Mariners 2013 pitching staff

Felix Hernandez

NWSB Insider and Seattle Mariners blogger Jeff Budke brings us the positive and negative approaches for the upcoming MLB season with the Mariners’ pitching staff. With King Felix Hernandez leading the charge, mentions Jeff, Seattle’s youngsters could develop into a great staff in 2013. That will only be so, however, if Felix is able to step into a mentor role and guide a few promising young arms like Danny Hultzen and James Paxton.

NWSB inside and Mariner blogger Jon Irwin is recapping the Seattle Mariners attempted trade for rightfielder Justin Upton. The proposed trade would have sent Upton to Seattle, and in return the D-Backs would receive Charlie Furbush, Stephen Pryor and prospects Nick Franklin and Taijuan Walker. While the deal looked like a done deal, Upton invoked his no-trade clause and will stay in Arizona—for now.
