Today is a slow sports day so I’d like to tell you a bit more about what’s going on with Bacon Sports and how we got to where we are today.

Thanks to all of you who have supported the site since it started. We really appreciate it so much.
Sit back, grab a red Gatorade or a Soda Shaq and get ready to hear about how we are building the awesomest sports media company ever.
What is the mission of Bacon Sports?
Our mission is to help people achieve their dreams through a love of sports.
It has always been my dream to work in sports. As many of you know the opportunities to work in sports are few and far between and since most of us aren’t 6’7″ and can dunk the NBA isn’t an option. Seeing as how you only live once I decided that there’s no way I’m going through life without giving it a shot. The best way for me to get the job tha...

The Seattle Mariners ended the first half of the season on a high point, earning their first series sweep of the season. Overall, July has been a very good month for the Mariners going 8-5 against Texas, Cincinnati, Boston, and the Angels. Texas, Cincinnati, and Boston would all be in the playoffs if the season ended today. The schedule gets kinder starting the second half...
At this point, the Seattle Mariners don’t seem overly
inclined to trade any of their offense. However, at 43-52 and in fourth place
in the American League West, the M’s are poised to become sellers at some point
this summer. Two of their most coveted players are on offense, as teams such as
the Tampa Bay Rays are believed to have been checking in with Seattle regarding
First-round draft pick Colin Moran waited five pitches to make an impression as a Miami Marlins minor leaguer.
Moran homered in his first at-bat for Class A Greensboro on Wednesday night, when the third baseman from the University of North Carolina made his professional debut.
Drafted with the reputation of being a line-drive gap hitter, Moran sent a 2-2 pitch over the right-field...
Wow, what a night the All Star game was. The atmosphere of New York, the star players in the spotlight, and Mariano Rivera making one last trek to the hill in the eighth while the stadium blasted Enter Sandman all made this a game to remember.
And, with a 3-0 triumph by the American League, the Seattle Mariners will have home field advantage in the World Series (I kid...
(Eds: Updates.) By TIM BOOTH AP Sports Writer Raul Ibanez is crushing homers at a rate better than Barry Bonds or Ted Williams did at age 41, Felix Hernandez has 10 victories at the All-Star break, more than any other time in his career, and young prospects Nick Franklin, Brad Miller and Mike Zunino have provided a much-needed spark for the Seattle clubhouse.
And still the Mariners...
We’ve reached the All-Star Break and congratulations are in order to Felix Hernandez and Hisashi Iwakuma for their election to the 2013 team! I had hoped that Raul Ibañez would’ve made the roster for a second time, but no such luck.
Perhaps one reason he didn’t make the team is because there are naysayers and skeptics who attribute his impressive numbers to something...
It’s the All-Star Break and while the Seattle Mariners sit 9 games below .500, I think anyone closely observing can see this is not the same Mariners team we have seen the last few seasons. There is a lot to be happy about among the new faces—Franklin, Miller, and Zunino—and some of the older faces are finally showing promise. The oldest face is the most entertaining of...
He’s the second youngest player to ever enter the Home Run Derby (Ken Griffey did it in 1990, similarly at age 20). Here’s his first round, totaling eight home runs.
