The Seattle Mariners' bargain price for Ichiro Suzuki wasn't low enough for at least one man. The Seattle TImes reporters that a burglar broke into the M's team store early Wednesday morning and stole 16 Ichiro jerseys. A month or two ago, that would make some sense. Suzuki is arguably the most popular player in club history (although Ken Griffey Jr. might have something to say about that), and his jersey would obviously be pretty valuable.

Hey Seattle Mariners fans! Could it be our time?

Are they really doing this? Well friends, as the MLB All Star Game approached, it seemed the only thing the local media was willing to talk about in regards to this Mariners team was how terrible they had been at home. They were on pace for a historically futile season in the confines of Safeco Field, the power numbers were terrible, the team batting average was 20+ points below...

Suzuki adds a spark to Yankees

The Yankees traded for Ichiro Suzuki one month ago, rolling the dice that the 10-time All-Star would catch a second wind with a move from the last-place Seattle Mariners to first-place New York.

Why the Mariners are Really Happy with Perfection

Last Wednesday, Felix Hernandez crafted his own place in the baseball history with just the 23rd perfect game in MLB history.

The publicity and sense of Mariner pride brought out by this rare and spectacular performance reflected in sales; the businesses...

The M’s — How Great Thou Art

June 2nd, 1990—that’s a date that a lot of Mariners fans remember. Randy Johnson threw the first no-hitter in the franchise’s history. Now 22 years later, on the 35th anniversary of Mariners baseball, and on the year that Johnson was inducted into the Mariners Hall of Fame, Felix Hernandez threw the Mariners’ first Perfect Game. It seems only fitting that Johnson’s battery...

Eric Thames and Mariners Win 8th Straight

Surging Mariners hope to keep 2nd half rolling

(Eds: Adds details, quotes. With AP Photos.) By TIM BOOTH AP Sports Writer For much of his first two seasons as manager of the Seattle Mariners, Eric Wedge has preached exactly what his team has practiced over the past month. And while the Mariners' second-half surge is realistically too late to make a push for this postseason, it's at least giving hope that Seattle'...

How To Win the Wild Card

It's surprisingly hard not to be excited about the Mariners right now. It is a nice change of pace from the previous decade or so. Whispers of "refuse to lose" are slipping out - timid whispers that respect the decade of futility, combined with the long odds the team faces right now, but whispers nonetheless that signal a little hope and excitement...
