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. Let’s […]
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 […]
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 […]
NWSB Insider and Seattle Mariners Blogger Brian Scott recaps the early-season success found by the M’s bats. Featured are players such as Dustin Ackley, Justin Smoak Abraham Almonte and Robinson Cano. A not-so-honorable mention comes in the form of Kyle Seager.

NWSB Insider Brian Scott gives us a look at the situation brewing for the Seattle Mariners involving Dustin Ackley and Justin Smoak. If the two don’t perform in the early part of the 2013-14 MLB season, Scott postulates that he’ll be writing about who the M’s can get at the trade deadline opposed to how well they’ve played up to that point.
NWSB Insider Brian Scott gives us his reason the Seattle Mariners should start two rookie pitchers: Taijuan Walker and James Paxton. If you listen to the scuttle out there, it appears the M’s are far more interested in signing another bat (ie Nelson Cruz) rather than another starting pitcher. But if the M’s use their rookies in the rotation, that leaves just one spot.
NWSB Insider and Seattle Mariners Blogger Brian Scott breaks down what’s left in MLB free agency now that Masahiro Tanaka has gone to the New York Yankees.

NWSB Insider and Seattle Mariners Blogger Brian Scott takes a look at some potential trade partners for the M’s. Despite signing Robinson Cano and others this offseason, the team still has needs. The New York Yankees could help fill those needs if the Mariners are willing to part with Dustin Ackley.
NWSB Insider and Seattle Mariners Blogger Brian Scott wonders what the team should do with Michael Saunders now that they’ve re-signed Franklin Guiterrez. Before this signing, the outfield looked to be Corey Hart and Logan Morrison on the corners with Dustin Ackley in center and Saunders on the bench for defensive replacements. Now the M’s have brought in a fifth outfielder to the equation.
