The Seattle Mariners didn't sell off any of their veteran parts at the trade deadline because they preferred to keep the roster intact.
"Again I think from an organizational standpoint there is a commitment from us to the players" Jack Zduriencik said. "And I hope that this message the fact that we kept this group of guys together I hope they together realize that 'OK so we believe in what you're doing. We believe that you guys can compete. And let's continue to do that. Let's continue to play good baseball.'"
Michael Morse and Kendrys Morales were rumored to be on the market. Both players will be free agents at the end of the season.

AROUND THE WEB
Seattle Mariners acting manager Robby Thompson, who’s in charge as Eric Wedge recovers from a stroke, suffered a quick mental lapse during a ninth inning meltdown that contributed to their epic loss to the Boston Red Sox Thursday night.
Here’s how it went down: Thompson was to pulling Tom Wilhelmsen after he allowed the first four batters in the inning to reach base. He wanted...
As the trade deadline approached Wednesday, many were
anticipating the Seattle Mariners would make several moves, shedding veteran
players with expiring contracts to bolster their farm system and add money to
their coffers. However, Seattle didn’t make any significant moves, deciding
instead to retain players such as Mike Morse, Kendrys Morales and Raul Ibanez.
WRONG ARM OF THE LAW
Seattle Mariners acting manager Robby Thompson's unintentional gesture to the bullpen with the wrong arm forced him to go with the wrong pitcher. It would end up costing the team heavily.
Seattle Mariners third basemen Kyle Seager received an adorable letter from a young fan on Friday.A few weeks ago, Seager lost his bat during a game against the Houston Astros at Minute Maid Park. His bat went flying into the stands and eventually landed in the direction of a young Astros fan named Lyle.Lyle not only gave Seager his bat back, but it's safe to say he gave Seager...
Heading into the Seattle Mariners‘ series against the Boston Red Sox, there were many fans throughout the Pacific Northwest who had the faintest hopes of the Mariners making a 1995-esque type of run into the playoffs this year, myself included. Seattle was streaking, had been arguably the hottest team in baseball in July, and was getting Michael Morse back from the...
M’s made some crazy plays in Beantown
Even Despite a three-game sweep…
- the bullpen
This was not a direct quote from the four Seattle Mariners relief pitchers that coughed up 7 runs in the last two innings against the Sox Thursday night, but it might as well have been.
Over the past few years, Seattle fans have felt the need to apologize to the King, but...
Michael Saunders homered twice and drove in five runs, Erasmo Ramirez retired 18 of the first 20 batters he faced and the Seattle Mariners beat the Baltimore Orioles 8-4 Saturday night to end a four-game losing streak.
Saunders hit a three-run drive in the fifth and added a clinching two-run shot in the ninth. It was his fifth career two-homer game, the second this season.
The Red Sox are back in first place in the American League East after a 15-inning marathon win against the Mariners on Wednesday night, and now they have a chance to sweep Seattle right out of town.
But if Boston is going to win three straight against the Mariners, the Sox will have to beat Felix Hernandez, who hasn’t lost a game since May 25.
Hernandez is pitching lights-out baseball...
Robby Thompson is serving as acting manager of the Seattle Mariners while Eric Wedge recovers from a mild stroke, and the interim chief has been doing so well that Cincinnati Reds skipper Dusty Baker believes he is ready for a more permanent managerial position.
Baker might want to rethink that claim.
In Thursday’s game against the Red Sox, Thompson and the Mariners held a five...
Deuce packs his bags
I’m sure all of the soccer fanatics in the US, and the Northwest in particular, have heard the news by now the US National Team member Clint Dempsey has been sold by Tottenham Hotspur to the Seattle Sounders.
It’s crazy for me to think that some people may not know who Dempsey is, or realize the importance of this signing not only for Seattle, but for MLS...
Okay, admit it. You gave up on the Boston Red Sox at about the 7th inning when they found themselves trailing 7-1 to the Seattle Mariners, especially with King Felix Hernandez on the mound.
But once the Red Sox got into the Mariners bullpen, they started their comeback. A run in the 8th followed by six runs in the 9th capped off by Daniel Nava's single gave them the improbable...

Sox go loco in the 9th, win 8-7
This game looked to be over in the fifth inning when the Mariners took a 7-1 lead against Seattle Ace Felix Hernandez, but if you know these Red Sox, you know it's never over until the game ends. King Felix went seven strong, spreading out six hits and only givng up a run. On the other side, Ryan Dempster...
By now it’s bordering on the absurd.
All season the Red Sox have made a habit of ninth-inning comebacks and walkoff dramatics at Fenway Park. But even they had no business doing what they did in the ninth last night.
Facing a five-run deficit that wasn’t greater only by the grace of left fielder Jonny Gomes’ barreling catch that rattled the Green Monster’s metal scoreboard...
