Seattle Mariners manager Eric Wedge is mad as hell and he's not going to take it anymore.
At least that's how he seemed after his team's 10-3 loss to the Houston Astros Wednesday night. That gave the Mariners their second series loss of the season to the Astros, and it's only April.
Houston was generally considered to be the worst team in MLB — if for no other reason than its $26 million payroll. That alone should keep the Mariners out of last place in the AL West this year. Yet right now, Seattle looks like the worse team.
Wedge was so fed up with what he saw that he held a closed-door meeting with his players following the game. Ryan Divish of the Tacoma News Tribune reported that Wedge's voice could be heard outside the clubhouse as he chewed out the team.
We're just four weeks into the 2013 season and Wedge already doesn't like what he sees from his club. While speaking with the media, he made a point to mention that several hitters ...

AROUND THE WEB
As the Mariners departed for Texas, they were coming off a solid home stand where they went 4-6. Texas was not as kind to the Mariners as they were swept by the Rangers and lost two out of three to the Astros, their second series loss to the Astros this season. At 8 up and 15 down, the Mariners are hardly at the stage they hoped to be at this early in the 2013 season. After...
Mariners general manager Jack Zduriencik called it "a perfect storm in a negative way."
Six players injured, including three pitchers and three starting outfielders. Young hitters getting off to slow starts, then pressing to end their slumps.
The result is that the Mariners, after going 22-11 in spring training, are one of baseball's biggest disappointments in April...
Seattle Mariners outfielder Eric Wedge told reporters -- including Greg Johns of MLB.com -- that the team is expecting to get outfielder Michael Saunders back from the disabled list next week.
Saunders is set to head out on a minor league rehab assignment with Seattle's Triple-A club over the weekend. If all goes well during the rehab stint, Saunders should be activated...
General managers in trouble always want more time.
Time for prospects to develop. Time for injured players to heal. Time for the GM's blueprint to become a fully formed vision of a championship contender.
Mariners GM Jack Zduriencik is running out of time.
The M's are 9-15 in a season in which they were expected to at least continue their recent incremental improvement...
The Seattle Mariners say a pre-recorded announcement that requested fans to evacuate Safeco Field before Thursday's Mariners-Angels game was a mistake.
About two hours before the 7:10 p.m. game time, a technician pressed the wrong button and the unnecessary evacuation announcement was heard. There was no follow-up to the announcement, but there were few people in the ballpark...

Felix Hernandez has had a pretty impressive career so far with some quality achievements. He hit a grand slam in 2008, he pitched a perfect game against the Tampa Bay Rays in 2012, he’s struck out over 1,500 hitters, and now, he has 100 career victories.
At the tender age of 19, Felix Hernandez made his Major League debut with the Seattle Mariners, going five innings in a loss...
SEATTLE (AP) -- Carlos Peguero hit a mammoth homer in his first at-bat of the season and Kyle Seager had a two-run homer to help the Seattle Mariners beat the Los Angeles Angels 6-0 on Thursday night.
Peguero hit his solo shot on a 3-2 pitch from Garrett Richards (1-1) in the third, 451 feet to deep center. The only two longer home runs in the stadium's 12-year history were...

With Brendan Ryan’s glove being benched because his bat cannot be carried by an offensively challenged club any longer, we look at the in-house options for the Mariners and examine their skillsets and development timeline
Ben and Paul talk to Corey Dawkins about Chad Billingsley`s elbow, then discuss the Mariners` decision to start Robert Andino over Brendan Ryan and the state of Seattle`s organization.
We are nearing the time of the fantasy baseball season where you can sell on player who has had a hot start for maximum value, and still purchase struggling stars for a reasonable price. With that idea, here are several hitters you should be trying to ship out or import.
Kyle Seager, Seattle Mariners: Kyle Seager is in the middle of a 14-game hitting streak and is really one of the...

Franklin Gutierrez has been known to be a fragile player over the past couple years, not even coming close to playing a full season. But in his first two years in Seattle, he sat out only 19 games total, yet in his last two he has missed over 100. At this point, Seattle fans have simply begun to expect an injury from Guti, and this...
It’s still April and the samples are still small, but we’re over 10 percent of the way into the 2013 season and a few statistics are beginning to stabilize. Approach-related statistics in particular are starting to reach the point where the regression can be a little less aggressive. Swing rate begins to tell a bit of a story after just 50 plate appearances, for instance.
