NWSB Insider and Seattle Mariners blogger Danny Ferguson reports on what he believes are prudent expectations for newly signed Canadian major leaguer Jason Bay. He points out though this is a long shot, remember that Jason Bay was the 2004 National League Rookie of the Year, 2009 Silver Slugger and a 3 time All Star. Nothing is what Ferg has come to expect from the M’s, so even if it doesn’t work, Bay has met his expectations.
Mariners insider Danny Ferguson brings us the Weekly Seattle Mariners notebook. The Mariners won more than they lost this week! Something fans should relish while it lasts. Manager Eric Wedge may be moving Ichiro Suzuki in the lineup once again, Justin Smoak’s bat finally showed up in New York, and the M’s took a trip to some local schools to educate students on the importance of drug prevention in their futures.
Seattle Mariners blogger Danny Ferguson weighs in with his December 16th 2011 State of the Mariners notebook.
