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...
You would be hard pressed to find positive milestones on the current Seattle Mariners squad if you really looked. Their last few years of futility have garnered nothing but negative responses and negative outcomes.
Ichiro Suzuki finally brought a positive to this franchise when he singled against the Arizona Diamonbacks three days ago.
That hit was his 2500th...
WHAT IS GLOVE?
Your browser does not support iframes. Home runs were flying off the bats of Arizona Diamondbacks players on Wednesday at Chase Field — six in all total, including one of the inside-the-park variety by Ryan Roberts in the team’s 14-10 win over the Seattle Mariners. But of all the balls that left the park, a [...]
NWSB Insider Jonathan Irwin brings us his reasons why the Mariners should bring in the fences at Safeco Field. With the Mariners doing most of their scoring on the road, it seems the fences could be the reason for the Mariners poor numbers at home. Ken Griffey Jr left because of it and it might be the reason Justin Smoak and Dustin Ackley can't seem to get it going permanently.
The Seattle Mariners hit a bit of a funk in the middle of last week getting swept by the lowly Padres. Since then, the Mariners have shown a spark taking two of three against the San Francisco Giants, and putting up big run numbers against Arizona on the road. The Arizona series went to the Diamondbacks 2-1, but the Mariners exploded for 22 runs in the last two games of the series...

If the Seattle Mariners don't start getting more from their starting pitching, they're going to decimate their bullpen. June has seen the Seattle starters go on some kind of limited work stoppage. In 19 games, the Mariners have seen their starters go five innings or less a dozen times, including the last three games. In Friday's 9-5 loss in San Diego, Kevin Millwood...
The first half in the Seattle Mariners minor league system was filled with surprises and some disappointments. Two of the three full season clubs that have had their break entered the midway point of the season in first place. SeattleClubhouse takes a closer look at each of these teams offering up went right and what went wrong with the clubs.
NWSB Insider and Seattle Mariners blogger Danny Ferguson reports on the Mariners series matchup with the San Diego Padres. Ryan Vogelsong (5-2 2.26 ERA) takes on Jason Vargas (7-5 3.90 ERA) in the series opener. The offensive woes of the Mariners are not likely to get better with this match up. Game 2, Felix Hernandez on the mound. One game he looks dominate, the next he seems to struggle.
MLB Interleague Matchup Insight M’s vs Padres Game 2
The Padres took game one of this series on Friday night 9-5. Kevin Millwood didn’t exactly have his best stuff, despite an early Mariners lead they couldn’t hang on and gave up a ton of run in the 5th inning to blow this one wide open.
Seattle Mariners vs. San Diego Padres
Saturday June 23
Petco Park – San Diego, CA
NWSB Insider and Seattle Mariners blogger Jonathan Irwin reports on the first M’s game of the interleague series versus the San Diego Padres. Jon didn't find much "good" left to report on in this game, so he highlighted that Ichiro Suzuki once again had a solid night at the plate. Hopefully the 38-year old Ichiro is proving he still has something left in the tank.
Another season of cellar dwelling could have the Seattle Mariners making more changes as we head towards the non-waiver trade deadline. One of these changes though could signal the end of era in the Pacific Northwest.
The face of the Seattle Mariners franchise for over the past decade, Ichiro will turn 39-years-old this October and has since seen his 10 year streak of 200+ hits...
Felix Hernandez pitched seven impressive innings and hit a two-run double to lead the Seattle Mariners to a 5-1 win over the San Diego Padres on Saturday night.
Hernandez (5-5) turned in his second strong outing, limiting the Padres to one run and six hits. The right-hander struck out 10 and walked one. His only blemish was a balk that brought home San Diego's only run in the...
