Is it finally their time?
There is certainly plenty we don’t know about the future for the 2014 Seattle Mariners. Who will manage the team? Will they really invest in any big names like Jacoby Ellsbury?
Heck, who will own the team?
Rather than continue to speculate on the “what ifs”, let us examine two position players we know will at least be on the roster come Spring Training...
Can it get any worse?
I’ve taken quite a few pot shots at the Seattle Mariners‘ brass this past week as the team wrapped up another abysmal season. It occurs to me however, that there is plenty of blame to go around.
While I’m sure Howard Lincoln is part of the problem, not the solution, let’s call all of Lincoln’s blunders #1 on my list of my Top 5 pet peeves from 2013...
These guys have nasty stuff
Someone asked me last week why I love baseball, especially Seattle Mariners baseball given that they have been so anemic in their last 10 or so seasons. I always give the same reason.
Just when I think I’ve seen it all, someone on the field goes out there and proves me wrong.

The Yankee version goes that we acquire solid veterans and give up nothing, either because the other team wanted to dump salary or they simply aren't as smart as us.Take Seattle, of course. Of course, the ultimate deal - Jesus Montero for Michael Pineda - now looks, at best, to...
Lou Piniella, back in the dugout?
The Seattle Mariners recently contacted Piniella about the possibility, asking him to come out of retirement to manage their team again.
One source with knowledge of the discussions described the Mariners' pursuit of Piniella as "a full-court press."
Piniella, however, declined the Mariners' overtures.

The Seattle Mariners might have finished light years out of the most recent playoff picture, but the band that helped popularize the grunge sound of the Pacific Northwest will be alive and well during the upcoming World Series.

The Seattle Mariners, who currently have no manager after 2013 skipper Eric Wedge resigned, apparently turned to former (and currently retired) manager Lou Piniella to retake the helm for the 2014 season. According to Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports, the Mariners made a “full court press” to bring back their most successful manager in franchise history:
“I talked to them about...
