Felix Hernandez, Seattle Mariners

NWSB Insider and Seattle Mariners blogger Britton Ransford tells us the laundry list of ideas he has for turning around the U.S.S. Mariners pathetic 2012 season. His ideas include cutting Chone Figgins, trading Felix Hernandez for assets, finding out if Jesus Montero is the every day catcher, even though Mike Zunino is now in the system, sending Justin Smoak to Tacoma for a bit, and lastly avoid 95 losses and don’t lose 17 games in a row.

A sight for sore eyes in center field for the Seattle Mariners

Franklin Gutierrez, Seattle Mariners

NWSB Insider and Seattle Mariners blogger Clinton Bell weighs in with Thursday’s top Mariners story; the return of Franklin Gutierrez. With the past year and a half basically spent on the DL, it is important for Gutierrez to get back to his normal ways, or face the threat of being shipped out come deadline time. It won’t be easy either, with the hot bats of Michael Saunders, and Casper Wells, the competition is real, and fierce.

Brandon League

NWSB Insider and Seattle Mariners blogger Clinton Bell weighs in with another M’s Week That Was. Intended to be a fun column, with lots of laughs and other good stuff.

Coming in, the Dodgers were the best team in MLB, but that sure didn’t show Friday night at Safeco Field.
