My oh My! Top play of the week for the Seattle Mariners (video)

An ode to an All-Star This weeks segment is all about King Felix Hernandez and his selection to the American League All-Star team. As the lone Mariner making the trip to the Kansas City for the annual All-Star game, I thought I would do my piece on him this week. This video is a collection of strikeouts from three appearances; San Francisco, Boston, and San Diego. But after...

Iwakuma will enter Mariners' revamped rotation after break

The Seattle Mariners will be reworking their rotation to begin the second half of the season. Just what form that revamping will take hasn't been completely determined.

Umpire delays A's-Mariners game due to empty cup in center field (Video)

Home plate umpire Jeff Nelson called time in the bottom of the eighth inning during Sunday's Oakland A's game against the Seattle Mariners to send a ballboy out to center field to pick up a cup. Seriously. Your browser does not support iframes. The ballboy had to run all the way from right field to get the cup. They could have saved some time by having Mariners center...

Oakland Oaks and Joe "Migraine" Magrane

Spending an afternoon watching the MLB Network's MLB Tonight (which just made this sentence an oxymoron) can make a viewer very restless. If Mitch Williams is one of the "analysts," then it is not watchable. Dan Plesac is slightly better. One of the worst but slightly above those two dudes just mentioned, is Joe "Migraine" Magrane, the former pitcher for...

Mariners are finding several homes away from home

Road Warriors The phrase “Home Sweet Home” is one of the most popular phrases in the English language. In sports, that saying holds especially true. When playing at home in front of your fans, you are expected to do well. Having a home crowd to cheer you on is supposed to be electrifying and help boost your performance. The 2012 Seattle Mariners are bucking that trend. While...

Felix Hernandez is an All-Star again and will be traveling to the mid-summer classic in Kansas City next week to perform on a national stage.

Mariners 7, Athletics 1

Jason Vargas pitched a seven-hitter to win for the first time in more than a month, and the Seattle Mariners snapped Oakland's five-game winning streak with a 7-1 victory Saturday night. Kyle Seager hit a bases-loaded double to drive in three, Brendan Ryan added a two-RBI double in the second and Ichiro Suzuki singled up the middle in the fifth to snap a career-worst 0-for-23...

Game-winning homer extends Carter's hot start for A's

Before Friday's game against the Seattle Mariners, Oakland A's first baseman Chris Carter homered off rehabbing left-hander Brett Anderson, who was throwing to hitters for the first time since May. A sign of sorts? Carter came off the bench in the 11th inning to hit a game-winning three-run homer at the Coliseum, lifting Oakland to a 4-1 win over Seattle. It was the third...

Mariners Limp Into All-Star Break

Seattle Mariners Manager Eric Wedge has been steaming for weeks over the club's lack of offense and being very open that changes were coming if the tide didn't turn. After yet another extra inning loss in which the club scored only one run, several changes are likely to take place over the All-Star Break. SeattleClubhouse looks at what those changes may be.

Former Florida Gators star Mike Zunino would probably classify this week as a good one. He might even go as far as to say it was a great one. In a matter of days, Zunino signed his first big league deal with the Seattle Mariners and followed that up by winning the Golden Spikes Award. Zunino broke a record of sorts when the Mariners selected him with the No. 3 overall pick in the...
