NWSB Insider and Seattle Mariners’ blogger Jeff Budke breaks down what happened against the Toronto Blue Jays today in MLB action. Aaron Harang tried his best to lose this game for the M’s, but for some reason the bats decided to come alive and give Seattle the come from behind win. All the while possibly delaying the DFA of Harang. Brandon Maurer got the win and Danny Farquhar got the save.

@Starbucks

NWSB Insider and Seattle Mariners blogger Ben Lypka tells us why western Canada roots for the Blue Jays instead of the Mariners. He says in BC we only have all 162 games on TV, Jays Central, Jays 24/7, recaps and replays of every game and postgame shows. What’s a desperate fan to do with such a lack of Blue Jays material to absorb? He says we cheer for the Jays because we can all relate to Toronto due to the fact that we share this great land of Canada.

Welcome back Michael Saunders, great pitching, a triple by Jesus Montero, a slam by Dustin Ackley, and Jason Bay is hitting the ball well. A great week by our Mariners all around.

Jason Bay on the market, teams watching

Jason Bay

NWSB Insider Steve Lee talks about where Jason Bay, once one of baseball’s best players, may end up next season. With the New York Mets front office coming to terms with Jason Bay last week as to a buyout that will pay Bay the guaranteed remainder of his $66 million contract ($21 million this year), Bay must now find himself a new zip code, or even a postal code for that matter, if he wants to play next season.
