Larry Brown Sports:
Catchers are generally lauded for being captains on the field and having their heads in the game more than most players. Unfortunately, that could not be said for Jesus Montero on Monday night.
The Mariners catcher ran off the field after Hisashi Iwakuma struck out Alex Avila for the second out in the fourth. He was about halfway to the dugout before reversing course after realizing the M’s still needed another out.
Montero generally DHs for Seattle, but he’s begun catching games daily with Miguel Olivo on the 15-day DL with a groin injury. This isn’t going to help the perception that he’s an offensively-focused catcher, not that that’s a terrible thing.

Upcoming Match Ups
The Tigers will be looking for vengeance after the Mariners swept Detroit on their last road trip. The M’s will then get...
Hilarious situation in Seattle this weekend. Hector Noesi had two balls thrown at him. One by the ump, one by his catcher. Have a look.
Nice reflexes Hector!
He threw one low pitch, but ended up getting back two baseballs. Wish I had this luck with women.
Blake Beavan still could miss his next start, though the Seattle Mariners right-hander is feeling better a day after he was forced to leave his start in the third inning after taking a line drive off his right arm.
Manager Eric Wedge said on Tuesday that Beavan had increased range of motion in his arm, but it was still too early to determine if Beavan will make his next scheduled...
Blake Beavan is a ''longshot'' to make his scheduled start on Sunday for the Seattle Mariners, but manager Eric Wedge wouldn't rule out the possibility.
Wedge said Wednesday that Beavan won't throw until Friday. Beavan had to leave his start on Monday night after getting hit in the arm by a Miguel Cabrera line drive. Wedge said Beavan could get pushed back...
Taijuan Walker | RHP, Mariners | Born: 8/13/1992
The Double-A Jackson Generals have quite an impressive rotation. With Danny Hultzen and James Paxton alone, it’d be among the best rotations in Minor League Baseball. Toss in Taijuan Walker, however, and now we’re looking at a truly special Double-A collection of arms, the likes of which doesn’t come around very often....
The Seattle Mariners still have some time before they have to decide which pitcher will start for them Sunday in Yankee Stadium. It could be Blake Beavan. It's his turn in the rotation, but he took a nasty line drive off his right elbow in Monday's start. He said he had trouble sleeping with the elbow elevated Monday night, and on Tuesday, the elbow and forearm were heavily...
Tigers In Town!
The M’s were able to rally together and break a 7 game losing streak in their second game against the Twins.
The M’s have lost the most games in which they once had the lead in all of baseball with 10.
Their problem is obvious, although they are in 4th place of all the 30 teams in hits, they are not getting those base-runners home.
As the M’s are edging toward...
Can the Mariners take a punch? Easy, easy, I’m talking figuratively.
I say that because the Tigers are in town tonight to open a three-game series. Item one in the Detroit memory bank is the Mariners coming to the Motor City, taking the Tigers apart April 24-26 in a three-game sweep, outscoring them 21-9. How good a stretch was it for the Mariners as they opened a long 10-game...
SEATTLE (AP) -- John Jaso lined a single over Detroit's drawn-in infield in the eighth inning to drive in Michael Saunders with the tiebreaking run, Jason Vargas pitched eight strong innings and the Seattle Mariners beat the Tigers 2-1 on Wednesday night.
Jaso's single off reliever Duane Below was hit so hard shortstop Jhonny Peralta barely had time to react before it was...

It looks like some Seattle fans had their rally caps on last night as the mariners went into the bottom of the ninth down 2-0 to the Detroit Tigers.
With Detroit closer, Octavio Dotel on the mound, the bottom of the ninth inning quickly gave M’s fans hope as Brendan Ryan and Ichiro both walked. Dotel’s struggle to find the strike zone continued with two wild pitches during Jesus...
Mariners catcher Miguel Olivo is in his 11th season in the major leagues, and while it is fair to say that he hasn't ever truly lived up to expectations for some, the 33-year-old's impact on the game shouldn't be discounted.
Jesus Montero isn’t trying to break your heart. Since arriving on the godforsaken Seattle Mariners, Jesus performed the miracle of allowing King Felix to dominate while throwing pitches as fast as Jamie Moyer, who he resurrected from the dead. He also tried to turn Chone Figgins into a useful player, but realized that was never his destiny. The 22-year-old top prospect has treaded...
