After a disappointing series against the Texas Rangers, the Seattle Mariners came home for the first time this season after playing their first eight games on the road. They dropped their home opener, but bounced back to take two of three games from the Oakland A’s.

M’s Arms Under The Spotlight
After starting off the season on a roll by taking three of four against Oakland, the Seattle Mariners came into the four-game series against Texas with no illusions.
The Rangers lineup, which finished 2011 leading Major League Baseball in total team offense, knew the Mariners pitching staff had their work cut out for them if they had any ideas of coming...
Each Monday during the season, we will take a statistical look at the good and the bad in the Seattle Mariners system from the past seven days. Reviewing the first full week of minor league action returns some good and bad.
Matt Moore (credits below) Welcome back to the Rookie Report, week 3. As always, everyone is waiting for that moment when they can brag to their buddies that they were ahead of the curve and knew that their "phenom" was ready to dominate the Bigs. Unfortunately, there is this thing called "reality" and it's rare that a rookie can actually live up the hype...

As I start today on Baseball Prospectus:
Before Howard Lincoln, Chuck Armstrong, and fans from the Pacific Northwest begin calling, the Seattle Mariners are not for sale. I’m not saying they are. I haven’t even heard a mere rumor to indicate as much. So if the Mariners do issue some kind of statement saying they are “unequivocally, absolutely not on the market” and that...
After a disappointing series loss to the Seattle Mariners, the Oakland A's continue their roadtrip on Monday in Anaheim. The Los Angeles Angels are also coming off of a disappointing stretch, losing their first three series of the season. Chris Biderman previews the four-game match-up.
The Seattle Mariners are coming off a much-needed break in the schedule.
The surging Cleveland Indians probably wish they didn't get a day off.
Seattle goes for a season-best third consecutive victory Tuesday night at Safeco Field, where it opens a series against an Indians team trying to begin 4-0 on the road for the second straight year.
