Mariners' rumors: Raul Ibanez would make a valuable trade candidate

As the All-Star break approaches, many teams on the bubble of contention have to decide they are buyers trying to win a postseason berth or sellers who need to retool for next year. As play begins on July 9, the Seattle Mariners find themselves just outside that bubble at 40-49, 12.5 games out in the A.L. West and 9.5 games out of a wild card slot.

Seattle Mariners: What went right

There have been more downs than ups this season, but the Seattle Mariners are on a definite up after their recent six-game road trip.  Seattle faced two teams both ten games over .500, Texas and Cincinnati, and took both three-game series.  While it’s true the Mariners still haven’t swept any team this season, a 4-2 road trip against that kind of competition is a step in the...

Mariners designate starter Bonderman

Right-hander Jeremy Bonderman's comeback with the Seattle Mariners is over after he was designated for assignment following consecutive poor starts. The Mariners made the move on Monday. The team recalled left-handed reliever Lucas Luetge from Triple-A Tacoma to take Bonderman's roster spot but the Mariners will still need a starter for Thursday's game against the Boston...

Nick Franklin officially rejoins Mariners lineup

A sigh of relief was felt amongst the Mariners faithful today, as rookie standout Nick Franklin returned to the lineup for the first time since fouling a ball off his right knee during Friday's game. The foul came courtesy of a bunt attempt, which left the second baseman in obvious pain after the ball ricocheted square off the inside of his kneecap. In a testament to his intestinal...

Erasmo Ramirez is Here to Help

Photo Credit: todogaceta.com This Thursday, Erasmo Ramirez gets his first major league start of the season against the Boston Red Sox.  If you remember, the right-hander developed into a bright spot for the Seattle Mariners’ rotation, and may have even helped out fantasy owners down the stretch.  Still, even with 2012’s success, this match-up isn’t ideal for any young pitcher’s...

Could we be seeing the last of one, or all of these Mariners?

Who stays? Who Goes? As Mariners fans, we know how scary the trade deadline can be. This team has been built around a plethora of deadline deals that have worked more for the other team than our own. This year is no exception. The Mariners are treading water a cool 10 games under .500, though the past week has seen some good ball out of the boys in blue. To my count, we currently...

Mariners 11, Red Sox 4

Felix Hernandez held the Red Sox to two runs and six hits over seven innings and Raul Ibanez hit his 22nd home run in leading the Seattle Mariners to an 11-4 victory over Boston on Monday night. Hernandez (9-4) walked two and struck out six, maintaining his 2.69 ERA, second lowest in the American League behind teammate Hisashi Iwakuma's 2.60. Hernandez allowed two or fewer...

3 Stars of the Game: Game 91

Here are the 3 stars of the game: Star 3: Justin Smoak Smoak went 3-4 for the Mariners with 2 RBI's and 2 runs cored. He hit 2...

Jason Bay Recalls Memories With Red Sox, Calls Transition From National League to American League ‘Tough’ (Video)

When the Red Sox traded away Manny Ramirez, they received Jason Bay. Bay reported to Boston from the Pittsburgh Pirates immediately and was in the Sox lineup the next day. He had a remarkable first few games with the ball club and, though he was only with Boston for two seasons, Bay has fond memories with the team. Bay talked about them with NESN’s Jamie Erdahl before the Sox matched...

Game 91: Red Sox at Mariners - Battle of Aces in Seattle

Ben Whitehead Contributing Writer Two tough losses in Anaheim have put the Boston Red Sox (54-36) in a 1-2 hole to start the West Coast road trip. Typically, a series against the Seattle Mariners (39-49) is a relief for the Sox. But for a team struggling at the plate facing one of the game’s best pitchers (if not the best), tonight is not anticipated to be a strong night. Boston...

Red Sox Recap: Listless in Seattle

The Guru Contributing Writer It was supposed to be a showdown of aces. Big Jon Lester vs. King Felix. Problem was, only one showed up. Felix Hernandez held Boston to just six hits and two runs in seven innings of work as the Seattle Mariners beat up on the Red Sox 11-4. Lester was not at his best. The Red Sox starter struggled with his command through five innings, giving...

Red Sox-Mariners Live: Jon Lester, Felix Hernandez Go Head-to-Head As Sox Open Set in Seattle

7 p.m. ET: The Red Sox faced the Angels’ top two arms in C.J. Wilson and Jered Weaver over the weekend, and they’ll open the week against the best Seattle has to offer. The Sox begin the second leg of their West Coast swing Monday night, visiting Safeco Field for the first time this season. It’s been another underwhelming season for the Mariners, who currently sit 12 1/2 games...
