The Seattle Mariners and their ace pitcher, Felix Hernandez, have been dancing around the idea of extending the 26-year-old’s contract another four years for $100 million. That would make King Felix the highest paid pitcher in baseball (CC Sabathia’s contract also calls for a yearly pay of $25 million, but that doesn’t kick in until [...]
BEST OF MAXIM
Not long ago, the rumors began to swirl about a possible four-year contract extension for Seattle Mariners ace Felix Hernandez. After his dominating performances over the last few seasons, it would make sense for the Mariners to try to lock him up for as long as possible. However, Hernandez may not be interested in such an extension.

It is no secret that the Mariners need a lot of crap to pull together a respectful season. Actually, crap is the one thing that they don’t need at all. The Mariners have been a crappy ball club for the past decade.
Some of the only quality stuff they have put out there are their commercials. And last year, even that was debatable.
It was encouraging early...

This season may not be as predictable as originally anticipated.
Some have called Jack Zduriencik desperate and worried about his job by adding veterans like Jason Bay and Raul Ibanez, or one-year contracts like Kendrys Morales or Michael Morse.
If this multitude...
While 2012 was a frustrating year for the Seattle Mariners, it was also necessary. Jack Zduriencik and Eric Wedge are committed to this young Mariners team and they believe that championship level success is right around the corner. The playoffs may be hard to attain this year, but here are 5 reasons why this club will be much more formidable this year.
1. Offseason acquisitions...
We have heard about the Yankees’ desire to get their
payroll under $189M by 2014 for some time now. Personally, I love it. Don’t get
