NWSB Blogger and Mariners insider Brian Scott weighs in on the 2014 Seattle roster. With just an hour before the regular season gets underway lets look at the Seattle Mariners finalized 25 man roster. Here’s a quick run down of who made the cut, who’s headed to AAA and who the surprises are.
Seattle Mariners post by Brian Scott. Randy Wolf pitched well enough to make this 2014 Mariners. In my opinion. It’s definitely not happening now as Wolf was granted his release. Following his release, Wolf stated to the media that after the M’s informed him he had made the team AND they wanted him to sign a 45 day advance release consent form. Bogus move.
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 […]
NWSB Insider and Seattle Mariners Blogger Clinton Bell is back with an in depth piece about the top two free agent candidates the Mariners are looking at in terms of starting pitching. Ervin Santana or Chris Capuano? Capuano is the latest player to drop his name into the hat of Jack Z, but he may not be the best candidate.
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 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.
NWSB Editor and Insider Chris Anderson recaps Seattle’s series against the St. Louis Cardinals. Playing a team who is battling for supremacy in their division, don’t let Sunday’s outcome fool you, the Mariners played a good series. Dropping the first game in extra innings, Seattle received a day two boost from James Paxton before an embarrassing loss on Sunday.
NWSB Editor and Insider Chris Anderson previews the upcoming series for the Seattle Mariners. Set to face the Tampa Bay Rays for a three-game series at Safeco Field, the Mariners will send Hisashi Iwakuma, James Paxton, and Erasmo Ramirez to the mound to counter Alex Cobb, Chris Archer, and Matt Moore. Let’s hope the Mariners can give that same support to Paxton tomorrow night.
NWSB Editor and Insider Chris Anderson previews Seattle’s upcoming three-game series against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim at Safeco Field. Getting Felix on the mound in game one is huge for a team looking to inch towards the .500 mark as the season draws to a close, and Erasmo Ramirez will hopefully follow up an impressive outing by Felix with one of his own. Harang will get the start in the series finale.
NWSB Insider and Seattle Mariners’ blogger Jeff Budke gives you three players to pay attention to on the Mariners in the coming months. Justin Smoak, Erasmo Ramirez, and Brandon Maurer will all be interesting players to watch as the season comes to end. Not contending for the playoffs, these three will likely attempt to prove their worth for 2014 as Seattle makes the stretch run to the offseason.
NWSB Editor and Insider Chris Anderson talks about the recent debacle that was Seattle’s series against the Boston Red Sox. Losing the first game 8-2, the Mariners suffered a heartbreaking, 5-4 loss in fifteen innings on Wednesday night and followed up that effort with one of the biggest breakdowns in closer history, as Tom Wilhelmsen allowed the Sox to come back from a five-run deficit to eventually win the game 8-7. Now sitting at 50-58 on the year, Seattle is 13 games back in the AL West and 10 games in the AL Wild Card.
NWSB Insider and Seattle Mariners’ blogger Jeff Budke breaks down what happened against the Cleveland Indians today in MLB action.
