Shatter The Backboard:
As the Seattle Mariners announced their 25-man roster they transitioned Chone Figgins from third base to a utility backup in the outfield and infield to make room for promising new players such as Kyle Seager and Alex Liddi. With Figgins out at third base, the Mariners can now concentrate on putting their most competitive lineup

Simply put, it was a rough three game series for the Seattle Mariners against the Cleveland Indians. The Mariners had leads in all three games, but the Indians ended up taking two out of three games. Seattle led 8-1 in the fourth inning on Tuesday before eventually losing 9-8. They also led 1-0 in the ninth inning last night, but a rare blown save from closer Brandon League...
So many possibilities…
The Seattle Mariners announced a new low in recent franchise history. The answer could be one of several possibilities, but I’ll spoil it right off the bat for you – Attendance.
Wednesday April 18th, a lowly 11,343 fans came to Safeco Field to see the Mariners take on the Cleveland Indians. That is the lowest single game attendance in Safeco Field history...
DID HE GO?
Philip Humber of the Chicago White Sox threw a perfect game against the Seattle Mariners this afternoon. Check out the video below of the last strike and out of the game. The umpire, Brian Runge, called the batter, Brendan Ryan, out when Ryan tried to check his swing on a 3-2 count. Judge for yourself if the umpire made the right call. The perfect game would have been ruined if Ryan...
Fox never showed a different angle of Brendan Ryan's final swing/checked swing, the swing/checked swing that completed Philip Humber's perfect game. This YouTube video purports to show the final pitch from the first-base side.
Well, if this is legit, that settles that, am I right? It's clearly [muffle muffle muffle]

Josh Tomlin was able to pitch the best game I have ever seen him throw last night as the Cleveland Indians were able to muster just enough run support to get Tomlin a win. The Cleveland Indians had a few opportunities to get Tomlin some runs. The main problem for the Tribes offense was Seattle’s Felix Hernandez who threw one heck of a game himself. Tomlin match him inning for inning...

With the Mariners holding a 1-0 lead in the ninth inning, it was time for Seattle's Capital C closer, Brandon League. Of course, League allowed two hits and two walks, and with those four baserunners...
