Ken Griffey Jr. dominating #TBT game on Instagram

Ken Griffey Jr. is not one of those folks that you would immediately would think has an Instagram account, but that is probably why it makes his feed so special. The former Mariners star has been on Instagram since the middle of October, and FTW spotted the goodness first.  Here is a sampling of the goods, including a few incredible throwbacks.  You can check out his full account...

Seattle Mariners: 2014 Off Season Plan

It wasn’t all bad for the Seattle Mariners in 2013.  Sure, the record ended at a disappointing 71-91, but this team showed the building blocks are in place for a better 2014.  The youth movement has paid dividends with Seattle having the possibility of adding Taijuan Walker and James Paxton to the rotation who both looked good in late season action.  Since 2004, this team has...

How the Seattle Mariners Stay Out of Contention

In the past ten seasons, the Seattle Mariners have a combined record of 718-902 -- an average year for them has been 18 games below .500. Over that span, they have had two 101-loss seasons, seven last place finishes in the American League West, and seven different managers. The team hired Lloyd McClendon this week to take over from departing manager Eric Wedge. They had...

Off season & off beat Mariners can’t miss analysis

Is the offseason really that boring? Some quick hits on what is going on with the Seattle Mariners organization during the first week of November. Lloyd McClendon Welcome to the great Northwest.

Tim Wallach from 3B to bench?

The Mariners and Tigers loss, is our gain... or status quo. Nothing is official just yet, but it appears as though Tim Wallach will be back with the Dodgers next season after being overlooked for the head coaching jobs in Seattle and Detroit. Whether Tim will be waving Puig home, or chirping in Donnie's ear from the bench is the questions. According to Ken...

The DH Debate: David Ortiz vs. Edgar Martinez

Cooperstown. By the end of the 2013 World Series, David Ortiz’s induction into Baseball’s Hall of Fame seemed all but certain. A three time World Series champion and owner of some of the greatest statistics in baseball playoff history, Ortiz was also quite possibly the greatest designated hitter of all time. Make that claim, however, in a room full of baseball enthusiasts and...

Are Ethier talks worth a reboot for Mariners?

Seattle intends to be players on the free agent market this winter, but Jack Zduriencik has also stated that the club is already exploring trade options to improve their team for 2014 and beyond. Could they possibly grab a player comparable to a rumored free agent target at a lower dollar amount and for shorter terms by trading for Andre Ethier? We examine the possibility.

On the Present-Day Value of Managerial Experience

The newest manager in Major League Baseball is also not baseball’s newest manager, in that the Mariners have officially hired Lloyd McClendon to replace Eric Wedge, and McClendon has managed before, for about five years with the Pirates at the start of the millennium. The Mariners are still a young team, and on the face of it, it’s hardly surprising that they went with an experienced...
