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.

NWSB Editor and Insider Chris Anderson talks about the predicament the Seattle Mariners are moving towards with the trade deadline looming. Seattle’s record right now is 47-52.

While this would leave some to believe that the Mariners are completely out of the playoff picture, with the way they’ve played recently and the tools they will be getting back in the near future, I really believe anything is possible with the squad this year.
