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. Well the bats came alive in KC, the arms followed in Tampa Bay. A nice 5-2 week for the M’s. Miguel Olivo has a chance to pitch, Casper Wells leads off, Felix Hernandez shuts down the Royals, and the Mariners say goodbye to a legend.

Would the Mariners consider parting with Dustin Ackley this offseason?

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, but since it was a short week for the M’s, this week will only be a top 5. Felix gets shafted at the ASG, Dustin Ackley is turning it around at the leadoff spot, and Safeco turns 13. Plus, will Jack Z have a card up his sleeve come deadline time?

Happy Felix 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. Back to the losing column for the M’s this week. Felix Hernandez looks toward the All-Star game, Hector Noesi finally sent down to Tacoma, and Taijuan Walker and Danny Hultzen make a name for themselves in Kansas City.

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.

Felix Hernandez

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. With six of seven games going down to the wire, this was actually a pretty exciting week. More injuries to report; Erasmo Ramirez and Franklin Gutierrez. An old friend Mark Langston returns to Seattle, and John Jaso with a flare for the dramatics.

Did the Mariners Felix Hernandez get a pity vote to the All Star team?

King Felix

Mariners insider Danny Ferguson asks the age old question, since every team has to have one All-Star, did Felix Hernandez get a pitty vote? It is true that he is the only starter in the rotation that deserves the credit, but does his record actually merit the nod? The awards have been changed to supplement the fact that Felix plays for the terrible Mariners, has the all star nomination gone the same way?

Weekly Seattle Mariners recap: Series pitching vs. Oakland & Boston

Felix Hernandez, Seattle Mariners

NWSB Insider and Seattle Mariners blogger Brandon Choate gives us his weekly M’s pitching breakdown in the arms under the spotlight segment. Felix Hernandez was in Cy Young form this week and Kevin Millwood and Erasmo Ramirez were on track for similar starts until injuries derailed them. Jason Vargas threw well while Hector Noesi had another forgettable performance.

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.

Dan Wilson

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. Another bad week for the Mariners in inter-league play. Lost four out of six against the San Diego Padres and Arizona Diamondbacks, Michael Saunders and Casper Wellls keep hot bats, Felix Hernandez knocks in a pair.

Erasmo Ramirez, Seattle Mariners

NWSB Insider and Seattle Mariners blogger Brandon Choate gives us his weekly M’s pitching breakdown in the arms under the spotlight segment. Felix Hernandez, Erasmo Ramirez, and Hector Noesi all put up great performances, but only Felix got the win. This goes hand in hand with the way things have been going this season for the starting rotation. Jason Vargas continued his slide with a poor performance.

Offensive struggles cause for concern for Mariners Ackley?

Would the Mariners consider parting with Dustin Ackley this offseason?

NWSB Insider and Seattle Mariners blogger Britton Ransford tells us the season long sophomore slump that Dustin Ackley has been going through in 2012. With Ackley tearing the cover off the ball in every level prior to the big leagues, this is cause for concern for the Mariners. Ackley has a new found fondness of striking out that never has plagued him before in his career, and his OBP, and Slugging numbers are down from last year as well.

Mariners vs. San Diego Padres: MLB baseball love ‘em & hate ‘em Game 3

Hector Noesi, Seattle Mariners

NWSB Insider and Seattle Mariners blogger Jonathan Irwin reports on the third and final game of the interleague series versus the San Diego Padres. Even with strong pitching, the Mariners bats can’t help them win games. The Mariners are now 31-43, seemingly already digging their proverbial grave. The top five hitters had just 2 hits—not including Kyle Seager’s pinch hit double. Edinson Volquez was unsolvable.
