The 2013 commercials are finally OUT.
We look forward to baseball season every single year. And one event that lets us Seattle Mariners die-hard fans know the season is right around the corner is the Mariners releasing their commercials.
The M’s unveiled their ads Tuesday morning.
The newest season features Dustin Ackley wearing his love for fans on his sleeve. A Mariners fan does his part to create a little luck for the team. A diehard fan goes above and beyond to support the Mariners. Brendan Ryan is a friend to all, including those in the animal kingdom, and my favorite Felix Hernandez turns his skills into a hot, new product.
See some of your favorite M’s auditioning for leading men roles today!

It is Ackley’s Breakout Time!
The 2009 number 2 overall pick has been fine, but the Mariners need more than that in 2013.
In the land of the rising sun, where the 2012 season began for the Seattle Mariners a year ago, 2B Dustin Ackley kicked off his sophomore season with a bang.
In the 4th inning, Ackley took A’s pitcher Brandon McCarthy to dead center for his first home run...
Scratchin My Hat
I was originally going to title this article, “5 players who are surprising me in Mariners spring training.” The more I thought about it, though, the less surprised I was and the more annoyed I was getting.
Most of this annoyance is directed toward the Seattle Mariners‘ veteran AAA outfielder, Carlos Peguero. It isn’t that I don’t like Peguero; in fact...
He could probably talk to a Buffalo too!
The young 3B has been ahead of schedule his entire career; Mariners fans are looking forward to year three.
At the ripe age of 25, 3B Kyle Seager is heading into his third season with the Seattle Mariners, his second complete season. Called up in 2011, Seager surprised both fans and experts by arriving at the show only a month after 2B Dustin...
The Seattle Mariners continue to play in Peoria, Arizona, yet the tune sounds a bit different as of late. The Mariners have lost 6 of their last 7, which comes after winning 10 straight. Young and old pitchers keep rotating, and the lineups continue to shift and adjust, in hopes of finding a groove; it will take a little longer for the young, old, and new to mesh.
A few things...
The Mariners extended a rather low-profile non-roster invitation to veteran right-handed reliever Kameron Loe before Spring Training got underway this year. He has performed great so far in Peoria, but it is his past track record that really intrigued Seattle. We show you why that is and what Loe offers that the rest of the Seattle bullpen doesn’t inside.
The best of the best
For a city that’s had more than its fair share of losers, Seattle has been home to some of the most perennial athletes of the past half century as well.
From Steve Largent, Jerry Rice, and Shaun Alexander, to Slick Watts, Lenny Wilkens, Shawn Kemp, and Gary Payton, to Kasey Keller, to Alex Rodriguez, Randy Johnson, Ichiro, and Edgar Martinez.
But out of all...
Felix Hernandez struck out three in three innings of his second spring training start, but the Seattle Mariners lost to an Arizona Diamondbacks split squad 5-4 Tuesday.
Hernandez, who became the highest-paid pitcher in baseball when he signed a seven-year, $175 million contract in February, walked one and gave up one hit - a solo home run to Eric Hinske.
In two spring appearances...
As the 2013 MLB season grows closer every day, the Seattle Mariners find themselves with an interesting predicament in the outfield. In the previous 3 to 4 years, the Mariners have struggled tremendously to find 3 competent outfielders to place on the field at one time. Circumstances are different this year. For the first time in years, the M’s starting outfield could be one of...
It’s safe to say there’s general acceptance that using a small sample in data sets has the potential to result in spurious correlations or unreliable conclusions. Yet every Spring, there’s a long list of reclamation projects who will no doubt be judged on a very small sample size of data. Just ask Kelvim Escobar who found himself looking for a new team after two-thirds of a...
Michael Morse made the Mariners out of camp five years ago thanks to big offensive production in spring training. Now he's back, and even though he's a big league regular, he's still having another fruitful spring for Seattle.
Morse hit two home runs and drove in five runs to lead the Mariners back from a six-run deficit for an 8-7 win over the Cincinnati Reds Thursday...
