NWSB Insider and Seattle Mariners editor “Q” has the privilege of reporting on another MLB moment in time. Felix Hernandez (The King) Pitched nine perfect innings today at Safeco Field in Seattle vs. the Tampa Bay Rays to record the gem. Just this week we said he had an outside chance at the 2012 AL Cy Young award, now he has to be front and center in the conversation doesn’t he? The Mariners won the game 1-0.
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. Coming off of a weekend sweep in Colorado, the M’s were quickly back to their losing ways by the weekend. Brandon League loses his spot, Chone Figgins gets back in a game, and the Rainiers make an appearance at Safeco Field.
NWSB Insider and Seattle Mariners blogger Jonathan Irwin reports on the third M’s game of the series versus the Cleveland Indians. The Seattle bullpen has struggled all season long, with Brandon League’s 0.00 ERA and 5-5 in saves the lone bright spot. Well now what else can we say about League after last night that doesn’t contain explitives? Eric Wedge, Mariners manager, made two questionable calls in this game.
