NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks Blogger Brian Scott gives us a look at the historic season that the team is having in 2013. Although it was short-lived, the NFL decible record once belonged to the 12th man. This team has never in franchise history been 9-1, but that changed this year. Russell Wilson is on pace to set the record for wins as a starting quarterback in his first two season. What will come next? The city’s first Lombardi trophy?
NWSB Insider and Seattle Mariners blogger Brian Scott weighs in today with a great post about the long standing suffering us fans have had to endure regarding the backstop in Seattle. After the departure of long time fan fave Dan Wilson, the Mariners haven’t been too lucky with catchers. That time is supposed to be in the past with two “future” catcher on the roster in Mike Zunino and Jesus Montero, but it is still uncertain if either of them will be with the big league club come April of next year.
NWSB Insider and Seattle Mariners blogger Brian Scott weighs in today with a great post on the Legend that IS King Felix Hernandez. The all world pitcher for the M’s. Brian begs the question. Imagine David Ortiz in the lineup everyday for Seattle, Randy Johnson as your ace, Jason Varitek catching, Alex Rodriguez at short, and Adam Jones in center… Felix became a legend when he signed a 7 year, 175 million dollar contract to stay in Seattle .
NWSB Insider and Vancouver Canucks blogger Steve Lee is back today to weigh in on HIS 5 worst Canucks trades of all time in another post in our Moments In Time series. Cam Neely and a 1st round pick to Boston for Barry Pederson. Cory Schneider to New Jersey for the 9th pick in the 2013 draft. Trevor Linden to the NY Islanders for Bryan McCabe, Todd Bertuzzi and a 3rd round draft pick.
NWSB Insider and Seattle Mariners blogger Clinton Bell brings us his top ten “My oh My” moments from the 2013 season. From the hot start in spring, to the promise of the future, the M’s had a roller coaster season for sure, again. And now with the need to fill the captain of the ship once again, the M’s may be staying closer to the bottom of the AL West than the top. Hisashi Iwakuma and his stellar play is focused on, as is Tom Wilhelmsen losing his closer role to Danny Farquhar.
NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks blogger Brandon Choate brings us his weekly moments in time in Seahawks history. With the Seahawks in town to take on the Colts, we look back to a 2009 matchup that the Seahawks would like to avenge this time around. Peyton Manning diced up the Seahawks defense while Seneca Wallace was filling in for an injured Matt Hasselbeck.
NWSB Insider and Seattle Mariners blogger Clinton Bell tells us to him the best “MY oh MY” play of the week had to be Justin Smoaks go-ahead homer against the Los Angeles Angels. Save the best for last, perhaps, was what Smoak was thinking on Sunday. He finally hit his first homer from the right side of the plate! Better late than never, and hopefully this will stop the talk of him abandoning his switch hitting duties.
NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks blogger Brandon Choate brings us this week’s moments in time. We go back to 2009 when the last time the Jacksonville Jaguars came to Seattle to take on the Seahawks and left 41-0 losers. Matt Hassellbeck hit both Nate Burleson and TJ Houshmanzadeh for 2 touchdowns a piece in the bulldozing.
NWSB Insider and Seattle Mariners blogger Clinton Bell tells us to him the best “MY oh MY” play of the week had to be James Paxton’s masterful start against the St. Louis Cardinals. In just his second start ever, Paxton looked like a seasoned vet going against a team that is in the middle of two post season playoff hunts, the NL Central, and the NL Wild Card. Paxton went 6 innings, giving up no runs on two hits with five k’s and two walks.
NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks blogger Brandon Choate brings us another moment in time. This time, we take a trip to late last season, when the 49ers came to town in a battle of playoff teams. After 3 50+ point performances, Russell Wilson and Richard Sherman did their best to do it again, but fell just short.
NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks blogger Brandon Choate brings us some Seahawk team records that are in danger of being broken this season. Richard Sherman and Russell Wilson are both in line to challenge multiple records while Brandon Browner and Steven Hauschka could chase some of their own. If Beast Mode stays healthy for the entire season and this offense runs like a well-oiled machine the sky is the limit says Brandon.
