Your 2014 Seattle Mariners, Are A +.500 Team

NWSB Insider and Seattle Mariners Blogger talks about the Ms hot start. An eight-game losing streak had a number of fans saying, “Here we go again,” but the McClendon’s crew has shown some stiff upper lip by going on a very tough road trip through New York, Houston and Oakland and coming away 7-2.

The Seattle Mariners Run Aground For 8th Straight Loss

Is it time to jump ship yet? After losing 6 games in a row to the Texas Rangers and Miami Marlins one would think that coming home, having ace hurler Felix Hernandez on the hill, and having the luxury of the abysmal hitting Houston Astros to punch around that the Seattle Mariners would snap out […]

Seattle Mariners offense off to streaky start

Mariner Runs Come Feast or Famine The Seattle Mariners are off to a reasonably good start at 7-6.  I use the term “reasonably good” because while I’m sure you’d like to see them at 13-0 I think you have to consider this a team that has been above the .500 level since 2009 when they […]

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 […]

The Time to Perform is Now for Ackley and Smoak

NWSB Insider Brian Scott gives us a look at the situation brewing for the Seattle Mariners involving Dustin Ackley and Justin Smoak. If the two don’t perform in the early part of the 2013-14 MLB season, Scott postulates that he’ll be writing about who the M’s can get at the trade deadline opposed to how well they’ve played up to that point.

Will an off-season of gambling pay off for the Mariners?

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

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.

Franklin Gutierrez re-signs with the Mariners

NWSB Insider and Seattle Mariners Blogger Brian Scott wonders what the team should do with Michael Saunders now that they’ve re-signed Franklin Guiterrez. Before this signing, the outfield looked to be Corey Hart and Logan Morrison on the corners with Dustin Ackley in center and Saunders on the bench for defensive replacements. Now the M’s have brought in a fifth outfielder to the equation.
