It’s that time of year again in Major League Baseball. Summer is approaching, players are dropping like flies with injuries and your minor league players are progressing nicely. For several teams in the league, now is the time to start making some changes.
In the case of the Seattle Mariners, it’s time to start the process now.
The Mariners have one of the best...
Jason Vargas is Seattle's winningest pitcher this year at 7-7, but he's lost three games in a row, and Wednesday's 4 1/3-inning, 10-run outing leaves his ERA at 4.66. More than that, he's leaving his pitches up. He'd allowed five homers in the previous three starts before yielding five homers Wednesday at Arizona, the worst home run performance of his career...

Ichiro Suzuki doesn't like to get days off, and he accentuated his desire to play in dramatic fashion once he got back on the field. The Seattle Mariners right fielder opened Tuesday's game with his 2,500th career hit and went on to collect three more hits, two of them doubles, in the Mariners' 10-inning, 12-9 victory over the Arizona Diamondbacks. "If you look...
When I was a kid, "Made in Japan" was like "Made in China" became in the '80s and '90s. It meant, in a word, "cheap."
Everything, it seems, but Suzuki, which was a well-built, tough, durable, fun motorcycle brand. Dad bought a couple 125cc Suzukis when I was about 12 or so. What fun!
Today, Suzuki means baseball. Not the kind they play in Japan...
Carlos Quentin would like to hear what the still undetermined new owners of the Padres have in mind before he is moved out of San Diego. Right now, the speculation in baseball is that the Padres' left fielder will have a new home before the trade deadline. But Quentin said on Tuesday afternoon that he wouldn't mind remaining a Padre -- this season and beyond. "...

The San Diego Padres might have lost another starting pitcher Wednesday. Right-hander Anthony Bass departed his start against the Texas Rangers after five solid innings and 60 pitches with an inflamed right shoulder. The severity of Bass' injury was unknown, and the pitcher will meet with team physicians Thursday, although no MRI is planned. "Hopefully, this is just...
It probably comes to no surprise that the Padres were swept by the Rangers. When the best team in baseball goes against the worst there is no denying that it is bound to go the way of the better team. But wouldn’t it have been awesome if we could have given them a commanding defeat? Of course I am dreaming, but it would have been great. As it is we have the day off today and wait...
