The Seattle Mariners’ starting rotation is beginning to jell with the return of Hisashi Iwakuma. You have to like what Felix Hernandez, Iwakuma, Chris Young and Roenis Elias have done so far. Brandon Maurer, on the other hand, has really struggled. The numbers speak for themselves.

Haven’t You Figured It Out Yet?  Iwakuma Is A Dominant Pitcher

Hisashi Iwakuma

NWSB Writer and Seattle Mariners Blogger Brian Scott breaks down why Hisashi Iwakuma is a dominant pitcher in today’s MLB. He may not throw a 95 mile-per-hour fastball, but he’s a Cy Young candidate and his WHIP is 0.72 — the top number among starters.

Welcome Back, Hisashi Iwakuma

NWSB writer and Seattle Mariners blogger Brian Scott welcomes back Hisashi Iwakuma to the lineup. With starters James Paxton and Taijuan Walker both on the DL as well, the bullpen has been pushed into a lot of extra innings of duty out there, and it’s taken its toll on some of the guys.

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? The Seattle Mariners offense was off to a quick start turned inconsistent at best.  Mix that in with a bunch of injuries to their starting pitchers, one might think the Mariners have already called up any reserve talent in the minors that might be lurking […]

Jack Z, Cano, McClendon

Is it time to jump ship yet?

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 […]

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.

Will the Mariners start the season with two rookies in the rotation?

Seattle Mariners

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.

Matt Garza

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.
