Sell, Sell, Sell–  The Seattle Mariners Must Get Out Now

Jack Zduriencik

NWSB writer and Seattle Mariners Insider, Brian Scott, looks at the potential trading pieces the Seattle Mariners have to replenish their farm system now that their 2015 season is doomed– With the M’s still around 10 games back and with three teams to run down, it just makes sense to throw in the towel. The core of Kyle Seager, Robinson Cano, Nelson Cruz and Felix Hernandez is certainly something that will still be there and can be built upon in 2016.

Has Edgar Martinez Made A Difference For the Mariners?

Edgar's attention to detail in everything he does is what will make him an amazing coach.

NWSB writer and Seattle Mariners Insider, Brian Scott, looks at the M’s offensive numbers jumps since the M’s hired Edgar Martinez as hitting coach– Let’s go beyond raw stats and look at the ABs and what we actually are seeing when we watch these games. The Mariners are seeing more pitches under Edgar. They appear to be hitting the ball the other way far more often than before Edgar. The team is scoring more runs with Edgar in the dugout too and these are things we saw Edgar do consistently and well for so long in Seattle.

Break Time — Seattle Mariners First Half Report Card

2014 Seattle Mariners

NWSB Writer and Seattle Mariners Insider, Brian Scott, gives us his grades and thoughts on the first half of the Mariners 2015 season– The Mariners are going to need a phenomenal run in the second half of this season if they are going to do what most people expect them to do– go to the playoffs. It’s the kind of run the M’s have not made since 1995.

NWSB Writer and Seattle Mariners Insider, Brian Scott, revels in the power surge of Mariners first baseman Logan Morrison, but can the M’s hang on to him beyond 2015? Assuming Morrison continues his offensive prowess, it does create somewhat of a dilemma for the Mariners come the end of the 2015 season. Morrison will enter his final arbitration year next season. He’s currently signed for an affordable $2.75 million for the 2015 season. There’s no question he’ll make more than that next year someplace, a lot more than that in fact.

More Mariners Moves — A Towering Trade For Trumbo

NWSB Writer and Seattle Mariners Insider, Brian Scott, takes a peek at the Trumbo Trade. Did the M’s over pay? The problem I see with this potential lineup is it’s almost too much power and not enough guys getting on base regularly. The M’s have scored too great a percentage of their runs this year via the solo homer. Trumbo won’t help that number.

NWSB Insider and Seattle Mariners blogger Jonathan Irwin reports on the 2012 American League West division. Since June 12th, the A’s are 30-12. In that time they’ve lost just two series, while sweeping twice—including a series against the New York Yankees. It’s been a rough week for Texas Rangers pitchers. Undergoing surgery to repair his forearm, Colby Lewis (6-6, 3.43 ERA) will be out for the rest of the season. The M’s are on fire.

NWSB Insider and Seattle Mariners blogger Jonathan Irwin reports on the 2012 American League West division. If any team’s spot in the standings is bound to change, it has to be Oakland. Right now nothing seems to be holding the Rangers back. As long as the pitching stays strong, and the offense starts to heat up, the Angels could be climbing the ladder very soon here.
