Are the Seattle Mariners turning the corner?

Dustin Ackley + Kyle Seager

NWSB Insider and Seattle Mariners blogger Jonathan Irwin asks the important question tonight have the M’s turned the franchise corner? Yes, if their last 5 wins mean anything it is hope. Never underestimate hope, especially in a season as disappointing as this one. Michael Saunders, Dustin Ackley, Kyle Seager and Jesus Montero. These are big names.

Mariners vs. Oakland Athletics: MLB baseball love ‘em & hate ‘em Game 1

Mariners vs. Athletics

NWSB Insider and Seattle Mariners blogger Jonathan Irwin reports on the first game of the series versus the Oakland Athletics. As is the ongoing trend with these “love ‘em/hate ‘ems” I must make a note that Seattle’s lineup was absolutely horrendous tonight. Oakland’s offense had just as hard a time tonight as Seattle’s, and it’s all because of starting pitcher Kevin Millwood. An incredibly boring game.

kevin millwood

NWSB Insider and Seattle Mariners blogger Danny Ferguson reports on the Mariners series matchup with the Oakland Athletics. PITCHING MATCHUP: Mariners RH Kevin Millwood (3-6, 4.00 ERA) vs. Athletics LH Tommy Milone (8-6, 3.73) in the series opener. Millwood missed his last start due to the fact he was licking his wounds. Which is bad when you have a groin injury.

Oakland Athletics vs. Mariners: MLB baseball love ‘em & hate ‘em Game 2

Wells scores with the 3rd run of the game on a SWEET hit by the suddenly hot at the plate Brendan Ryan.

NWSB Insider and Seattle Mariners blogger Jonathan Irwin reports on the second and final game of the series versus the Oakland Athletics. Isn’t it time for Kyle Seager and Justin Smoak to proove they can hit at Safeco? This is getting ridiculous isn’t it? Another save for the bartender Tom Wilhelmsen. Brandon League didn’t give up any runs, he did allow 2 hits in 0.1 innings of work. Not impressive.

2012 MLB Analysis: Know Your Enemy AL West

Know Your Enemy

NWSB Insider and Seattle Mariners blogger Jonathan Irwin reports on the 2012 American League West division. If one this is clear, it’s that this division’s teams could be in a long tight race to the wire because all have fairly identical records this past week. What’s keeping the Texas Rangers at the top. Just Josh Hamilton of course.

Bartolo Colon

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.

Moments in time…The Seattle Mariners week that was

Mariners Opening Day

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. Normally it will be a top 10 list, a la David Letterman style. Brendan Ryan, justifying his role on the club, and Justin Smoak both went yard on the series finale against Oakland. Also, news of Jesus Montero’s first long ball! Nice!

Oakland A’s vs. Mariners: MLB baseball love ‘em & hate ‘em Game 3

Blake Beavan

NWSB Insider and Seattle Mariners blogger Jonathan Irwin reports on the third M’s game of the series versus the Oakland Athletics. A 5-3 win and a win for Blake Beavan. The M’s won’t see another AL West team for twelve more series. Tom Wilhelmsen pitched a near perfect 8th, and Brandon League continued his scoreless streak while picking up the save.

Athletics vs Mariners

NWSB Insider and Seattle Mariners blogger Jonathan Irwin reports on the second M’s game of the series versus the Oakland Athletics. A 4-0 win and a shutout for Hector Noesi. Hitting homers in Safeco is a tough feat, let alone nailing a 415-footer to dead center. And yet, Jesus Montero did just that It’s still early in the season, but already Ichiro Suzuki seems ill-fit to hit third.

My Impressions of the Seattle Mariners’ 2012 Home Opener

Safeco Field

NWSB insider and social media blogger Carolyn Smith tells us after spending opening weekend in Seattle, she has some lasting impressions of the Mariners fans and the upcoming season. Seattle fans are dedicated. They are still out in full support of their team, even without an appearance in the post-season since 2001.

Felix Hernandez

NWSB Insider and Seattle Mariners blogger Danny Ferguson reports on the Mariners opening day matchup and series between the A’s and the M’s in Seattle. The 2 teams split their series in Japan, and the Mariners won both games back in Oakland. Blake Bevan was able to hold the Texas Rangers to a single run in Arlington, which is unheard of. Felix Hernandez vs. Colon tonight a match made in heaven.

My oh my! Top play of the week for the Seattle Mariners: (Video)

Chone Figgins Seattle Mariners

NWSB Insider and Seattle Mariners blogger Clinton Bell tells us to him the best “MY oh MY” play of the first week of the M’s season had to be Chone Figgins bunt vs. the Oakland Athletics. Like Clinton has been saying for the last four months; speed wins baseball games. And any time a guy like Figgins can turn a bunt into an RBI like this, you have something special brewing.
