24K per bat…NICE! The final player to report to the Seattle Mariners Peoria sports complex training grounds this spring was none other than Ichiro Suzuki.  Ichiro, who transitioned from the Japanese to American League in 2001 has a trail of stats and awards that have been the envy of every major league team for the past decade. Ichiro has been one of the only reasons that Mariners...

Seattle Mariners Baseball Is Coming

In last week’s column I went on a nostalgic baseball trip. I wanted to snap everyone out of the winter doldrums and remind them; Baseball is coming!!! I also tried to provide some reasons why baseball fans, and especially Puget Sound fans, should be excited. Because of the Mariners’ trip to Japan this year, pitchers and catchers reported earlier than usual. Lots of new names...

Eric Wedge Has Lost His Mind

There are not too many occasions during a baseball off season when a story makes your jaw drop to the floor. The Pujols signing by the Angels and the Pineda/Montero deal were two such occasions. Now there's a third. Eric Wedge has told the press that Ichiro Suzuki will be moved out of the lead off spot to third in the line up and Chone Figgins will lead off for the Seattle Mariners...

Mariners' Chone Figgins may be bound for leadoff spot

Figgins is feeling healthy again, having rehabilitated a torn hip labrum. And soon he should gain a newfound freedom: a long-awaited return to the leadoff spot in the order where he achieved his greatest success before joining the Mariners two years ago.

Understanding the limits of "sunk cost" theory when it comes to the Mariners, other ballclubs

Lots of talk the past 48 hours or so about Chone Figgins and the playing time he'll get this year. I went on ESPN 710 Seattle yesterday and chatted with the on-air hosts about Figgins, his contract and what the M's can reasonably expect to re-coup. But there's this line of reasoning I keep seeing cropping up online in both the mainstream media and the blog world. It has...

Mariners manager Eric Wedge says playing time will be factor in whether Kyle Seager makes club

The Mariners haven't played a single game this spring, so, clearly, much of the Kyle Seager conversation is speculative at the moment. But many of you have show interest in the topic today, especially when it comes to whether or not the young infielder will break camp. In the end, unless Seager rips the cover off the ball with his bat, his fate -- at least for the early part...
