My oh My! Top play of the week for the Seattle Mariners (video)

Franklin Gutierrez, Seattle Mariners

NWSB Insider and Seattle Mariners blogger Clinton Bell tells us to him the best “MY oh MY” play of the eleventh week of the year had to be Franklin Gutierrez’s RBI single in the 8th Thursday night against the San Diego Padres. More of a feel good story than one that helped the outcome of the game, Gutierrez’s RBI scored Justin Smoak on a play that we hope to see a lot more of before the season is over.

Angels vs. Mariners

NWSB Insider and Seattle Mariners blogger Jonathan Irwin reports on the second M’s game of the series versus the L.A. Angels of Anaheim. The M’s are 9-13 on the month, despite winning four of their eight series. I’ll be the first to defend the potentials of Michael Saunders and Alex Liddi, but players with a combined .311 OBP should not be batting one and two.
