Seattle Mariners offense off to streaky start

Smoak

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 […]

The Seattle Mariners recall Nick Franklin

Switch-Hitting Franklin back with M’s This morning Nick Franklin tweeted that he was flying to Texas, presumably to join the Mariners as they face off with the Rangers again. And it couldn’t come at a better time for the Mariners who have been streaky on offense. Where will Franklin fit in? Brad Miller, the man […]

Ladies & Gents!!! Your 2014 Seattle Mariners!!!!!

2014 Seattle Mariners

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 […]

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. But if the M’s use their rookies in the rotation, that leaves just one spot.

Seattle Mariners winter meetings and roster review

Robinson Cano Mariners

NWSB Insider and Seattle Mariners Blogger Brian Scott breaks down the team’s roster after the 2014 Winter Meetings. Nice additions in Logan Morrison, Willie Bloomquist, Robinson Cano, and Corey Hart. Here’s the biggest weakness remaining with the Seattle Mariners for the 2014 season. The Bullpen. Yoervis Medina, Charlie Furbush, Tom Wilhelmsen, and Steven Pryor. The pressure is on.

2014 Seattle Mariners managerial candidates

Joey Cora would obviously be a popular choice in Seattle.

NWSB Insider and Seattle Mariners Blogger Brian Scott discusses the train wreck (yes another one) that is the Mariners skipper situation. He throws out some possible names to replace Eric Wedge. Joey Cora, Bryan Price, and Robby Thompson could be in the running. He says when the dust settles, I believe the Mariners are going to go with Robby Thompson as their new manager. An obvious choice, but a smart choice.

Looking Back: Royals vs. Mariners series rewind

NWSB Editor and Insider Chris Anderson recaps Seattle’s latest series against the Kansas City Royals. Far out of any playoff race, the Mariners made sure to leave their effort on the field as they took 2-of-3 from a team still looking to contend for a postseason berth. James Paxton was stellar, Justin Smoak came through in the clutch, and Hisashi Iwakuma was better than ever. Nice to see Mike Zunino and Michael Saunders swinging the bat right now too.

Projecting the 2014 Seattle Mariners’ opening day lineup

Miller has done well in his first stint with the club. Expect him to fill the two-hole next year.

NWSB Insider and Seattle Mariners’ blogger Brian Scott gives you his prediction for what Seattle’s 2014 lineup will look like. With a plethora of youth already up with the club, Seattle returns a bevy of starters in 2014 but does have a need to pursue a DH in free agency as Kendrys Morales and Raul Ibanez don’t seem like realistic options for the position next season.
