Evaluating the M’s sixth starter
Erasmo Ramirez started the season in the Seattle Mariners bullpen, but it was soon realized that using him as a reliever wasn’t getting the best value from the 22 year old youngster.
So off he went to Tacoma to stretch out his arm.
While with the AAA team, Ramirez played in 7 games going 3-2 with a 3.11 ERA.
It is no secret that the M’s pitching...
It's that time of year again, rumor season
The trade deadline is still over a month and a half away, but that doesn't necessarily mean teams aren't looking around the league in search for potential help. The injury-riddled, flu-striken Redlegs (35-27) are no exception as they, like other contending squads, continue to attempt to perfect their roster. And the...
Pedro Feliz, the 37-year old third baseman who helped the Phillies win their World Series in 2008, is back in the Delaware Valley for a second time and he'll be across the river.
For the second time in his career, Feliz will be playing third base for the Camden Riversharks of the Atlantic League of Professional Baseball, an independent professional...
The Oakland A's and the San Diego Padres are the identical Lane cousins of baseball. They may play in separate leagues, but they look awfully similar. Both teams feature rosters in transition and have instability with their ownership situations. Both have struggled on offense this season and are well under .500. And both are coming off of three-game sweeps. Chris Biderman previews...
The Seattle Mariners have placed outfielder Mike Carp and reliever Stephen Pryor on the 15-day disabled list, optioned pitcher Blake Beavan and infielder Alex Liddi to Triple-A Tacoma and called up a four-pack of players from the minors.
The Mariners made the moves on Wednesday prior to their game against the San Diego Padres. Outfielder Franklin Gutierrez was activated from the...

On April eighth, Mariners top pitching prospect Danny Hultzen allowed five earned runs in his first Double-A start. Since then, the University of Virginia product has taken the hill a dozen times for the Jackson Generals allowing only five additional earned runs. This stretch of consecutive dominant outings has Mariners fans and prospect fans alike wondering how long it will take...
A Major League Baseball season is one of many ups and downs , with good weeks and bad weeks. The Seattle Mariners have had several ups and downs as of late, and have had some very noteworthy wins mixed in there. Things definitely could be worse for the Mariners; they're not doing great this year but also not bad, especially considering who they've been up against lately....
Seattle Mariners rookie shortstop Munenori Kawasaki made an amazing jumping catch against the Padres on Thursday, robbing Alexi Amarista of a bases loaded hit in the fifth inning of a tied ball game.
Kawasaki used every inch of his modest 5′ 10″ frame to make the grab, and relied on a snow cone catch to haul in the possible run scoring drive from Amarista.

The battle for the non existent Vedder Cup is off to the right track for the Padres. They (barely) won last night, beating King Felix in the process. So this team has defeated Felix Hernandez, Roy Halliday (twice), and Stephen Strasburg. Yet, we are still 20 games under .500? This game is so weird how it works out sometimes. The sad part is that we are losing to mediocre pitchers...
MLB Interleague Matchup Insight Giants vs M’s Game 2
Ok I’ve been trying to get a read on the Mariners for a bit here with my bets, so I’ve been laying off for a couple weeks. I almost dropped some money on a few last week but glad I didn’t. I have a pretty good read on them right now though. I’m not sure Vegas does.
San Francisco Giants vs Seattle Mariners
Erasmo Ramirez - He was recently recalled from the minors where he pitched extremely well. The Mariners are going to insert him in to the rotation and given how well he pitched during his stint in triple AAA, coupled with the fact that he’s a ground ball pitcher (they tend to do well in spot starts) and Ramirez makes for an interesting case.
Barry Zito – (5-3), 41 K, 3.24 ERA...
It had been a good week previously for the Seattle Mariners. They went 3-3 against a tough patch of schedule including two road wins over the Angels and a no-hitter against the best team in baseball, the Dodgers. That momentum, though, has now left the...

We went over Danny Hultzen in our last fantasy baseball podcast, but that was a bunch of jibber-jabbering, you want the facts! Well, actually, there were some facts in there. Rudy, for instance, stated he thought Hultzen would be up by June 26th. Okay, that’s more of an opinion. Okay, facts. 1) When Hultzen was drafted last year, he was one of the top pitchers in the...
