Burning River Baseball:
After a dominant sweep of Kansas City, the Indians will go to Safeco Field in Seattle to take on the Mariners. Get ready for some late night baseball as all three games start at 7 pm, Pacific time. The Indians and Mariners are have built a little history between the two teams the past couple seasons with the Indians basically stealing their best two minor league players, Shin-Soo Choo and Asdrubal Cabrera. In the past off-season two more players have switched sides with former Indian Kevin Millwood joining the Mariners and former M Jose Lopez coming to Cleveland.
The Mariners have had some early success in 2012 for what was predicted by many to be a cellar dweller. They are currently 6-5, right behind the powerful Texas Rangers in the AL West. The Indians have finally found some success as well. With their sweep of Kansas City they have moved to third in the Central and marched back to .500. Hopefully the Indians didn't leave their hitting shoes in Kansas City as they will...

Have you ever wondered what it’s like to be a baseball prospect?

Who’s hot, who’s not?
Week 2 in Major League Baseball is in the books and the Seattle Mariners are still considered a winning team…for now. The team came out firing, pulling off an unlikely comeback win in Texas and taking 2 of 3 from Oakland at home.
Pitching and hitting were both spotty, but both facets are already showing better promise than the last 3 seasons combined...
NWSB Insider and Seattle Mariners blogger Clinton Bell tells us to him the best “MY oh MY” play of the second week of the M’s season had to be the Mike Cameron ceremonial first pitch on opening night for the M's. A little strut to his step at first, before breaking into a trot, Cameron was met with a stadium full of cheers for one of the Mariners all time favorites.
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...
M’s back to work after a day off
For the first time this season, the Seattle Mariners play outside their own division as the Cleveland Indians come to town. Yes Brendan Ryan, you are back to work today!

Millwood hopes to continue from his good performance, holding the Texas Rangers to...
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. The series victory not only put Seattle over .500 on the season (6-5), but they are firmly in second in the A...
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...
NWSB Insider and Seattle Mariners blogger Clinton Bell weighs in with another M’s Week That Was. Intended to be a fun column, with lots of laughs and other good stuff.

Also, news of Jesus Montero'...

A look at why the Mariners could be in a prime position to be sold
Brendan Ryan hit a two-run homer, Justin Smoak added a solo shot and the Seattle Mariners beat the Oakland Athletics 5-3 on Sunday.
Ryan's homer in the second inning was his first of the season. Seattle's starting shortstop hit three home runs last season, all of them coming on the road.
Snapping streaks was the tone of the day. While Ryan hit his first homer before the...
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.
