NWSB Insider and Seattle Mariners blogger Danny Ferguson gives us his Mariners from A to Z. Not for the weak at heart, this could only be written by a fan such as Danny who has witnessed the few ups, and mostly downs of the past 35 years of Mariners baseball. From the bad moves of Nintendo, to the glorious My Oh My call of the late great Dave Niehaus, Danny gives it all to you, laid out like a fan obsessed.
New NWSB Insider and Seattle Mariners blogger Jared Galde tells us a little bit about the MLB center field position today. He asks the million dollar question. Has Michael Saunders earned the starting center field spot in Franklin Gutierrez’s absence? After a slow start, Saunders batting average is .330. What Gutierrez provides defensively in center field is undeniable.
NWSB insider and Seattle Mariners blogger Clinton Bell brings us his prediction for the 5th starter in the Seattle Mariners rotation. With Felix Hernandez, Jason Vargas, Hisashi Iwakuma and Kevin Millwood seemingly punching their tickets to be the top 5, there is one spot left. Blake Beavan and Hector Noesi are fighting for that spot.
Another Northwest Athlete in the spotlight today; Seattle Mariners “potential Ace pitcher” Larry Bernandez. Clinton Bell, one of our Seattle area bloggers points out how Bernandez has become a sex symbol of sorts around the confines of the Emerald City. While garnering the hype of former Mariner Ken Griffey Jr., LB could be “fighting for a spot” on the roster with newcomer Jason Vargas and Hisashi Iwukuma. Good luck Felix Hernandez.
