NWSB Writer and Seattle Mariners Insider, Brian Scott, previews the Seattle Mariners Upcoming 2015 Season– The Mariners won 87 games last year. Given their improved offensive potential with Cruz and their plethora of platoons in the outfield I think the M’s score more runs this year. Despite a shaky last couple of starts in spring training I’m hoping Felix Hernandez will still be the King and lead a dominate pitching rotation and come up with his first 20 win season.
NWSB Insider and Vancouver Canucks’ blogger Richard Hodges weighs in with with things reasons why this will…or won’t be a great and epic 2013 season for the Van City Nucks. Richard asks where will it all go wrong? He points out it could be all downhill IF Ryan Kesler is a shell of his former self; David Booth is a shell of his former self; and Zack Kassian is a shell of his current self. Can John Tortorella bring this team back? Can Roberto Luongo? Time will tell…
NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks blogger Brian Scott tells us as training camps and 2weeks of pre-season football wraps up, and another game approaches vs. the Packers this week there is lots to look forward to in Seattle. He tells us with high expectations comes serious pressure to perform. Tarvaris Jackson & Russell Wilson are ready to lead this team.

NWSB Insider and UW Huskies blogger Chris Hall gives us five fearless predictions for the 2012-13 Washington Huskies season. After the loss in the Apple Cup, UW needs to get revenge by beating Washington State twice. Austin Sefarian-Jenkins will shift his focus to football, Aziz N’Diaye will have a breakout season and the team will make the NCAA March Madness Tournament.
NWSB Insider and BC Lions blogger Phil The Bartender Slater weighs in with his 2012 BC Lions season preview and predictions. Of course he expects Geroy Simon, Travis Lulay, Andrew Harris, Byron Parker and Lin-J Shell to be great. If the O-Line stays healthy, reigning MOP QB Travis Lulay will be able to focus on his solid receiving corps. A repeat championship performance for BC.
Oregon Hoops blogger Jason Green points out the obvious. March Madness is a slim possibility. The Oregon Ducks led by E.J. Singler will have to win some big Pac 12 games and get off to a great start, since the Ducks only face one team ranked in the preseason top 25 in the first half of the season.
Insider Steve weighs in with five things to watch for with the Washington State Cougars basketball team in 2011/12. Ken Bone is a fine coach but will he have a competitive team this year remains to be seen. Reggie Moore, D.J. Shelton and Brock Motum have to have HUGE seasons.
Seattle Redhawks Hoops blogger Jason Green points out the obvious. While Seattle does return leading scorers Aaron Broussard (14.5 ppg last season) and Sterling Carter (13.8 ppg last season) the Redhawks simply need to shoot the rock better than they did in 2010 for the 2011/12 season to be a real success.
WSU Hoops blogger Jason Green points out the obvious. It will be harder for WSU to make to the Big Dance this season now that leading scorer Clay Thompson is now in the NBA. He thinks they will be over .500 and may get a NIT bid, but things will be tougher with Thompson gone.
Our man on the Vancouver Canucks beat C-Mac tells us players on the cusp last year, especially Keith Ballard, Cody Hodgson and Victor Oreskovich need to step up. This should be another promising and exciting run to the Stanley Cup, but whether the team has the patience to stick with such plans remains to be seen.
