It was a two horse race in our voting for the AL Cy Young award. And while neither of that duo involved is really a breakout star in 2013, they're new faces in the sense that neither finished in the top three in each of the last two years of voting. Oddly, neither of the winners last year received even one vote this year, along with none of last year's top three or *any* player to pick up a vote in 2011. This year, David Price and Justin Verlander have taken a back seat to these two guys.
But by just a two point margin, we're bowing to the king.
TOC's midseason winner of the AL Cy Young award is Felix Hernandez of the Mariners.
Throughout his stellar career, Felix Hernandez has continually impressed fans across the game. The 27-year old has three top five finishes in the AL Cy Young voting (including a win in 2010), and has four All-Star nods in his last five seasons. This year however, Hernandez is setting the bar even higher. In an AL-high 138 2/3 inn...
BEST OF MAXIM
AROUND THE WEB
Team: Seattle Mariners
Record: 43-52 (11 GB)
Biggest Surprise of First Half:
The biggest surprise thus far has to be the “Ageless Wonder” Raul Ibanez who has mashed 24 home runs in the first half of the season. The 41-year old is 5 homers shy of the elusive 300 Home Run plateau and has already eclipsed the 19 round trippers he hit last season. Not even the most optimistic Mariners...
Steady as she goes
My selection for Mariners MVP so far this year might not be who you would think. I could go with the long ball selection and pick Raul Ibanez, or the sexy selection and pick Felix Hernandez.
But I’m going with the guy who has been the most consistent for this club all season long, Kyle Seager.
He’s not the biggest name on the team, nor will he win any batting...
No everyone, your eyes are not deceiving you. The legend himself, Justin Smoak, has finally arrived.
Technically he arrived to the Seattle Mariners in 2010. But anyone who lives near the state of Washington is likely aware of how he has done since joining the organization.
Justin Smoak has shown glimpses of the highly touted prospect he was supposed to be, but never...
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...
Congratulations to right-handed starter Dominic Leone was promoted by the Seattle Mariners to Double-A Jackson. The Seattle farmhand had dominated at the High-A level, picking up 12 saves to go with a solid 2.50 earned run average.

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

Here we are at the All Star Break, and it’s time to look back at some of my Seattle Mariner’s predictions for the last month.
Let’s start with the Mariner’s schedule.
I predicted in the July 1, Seattle Mariners: July Preview article, that the M’s would go 8-5 between the start of July and the ASB. Here we are two weeks later, and guess what? The M’s went 8...
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...
With fifteen full weeks of the 2013 season in the books, today RotoBaller casts a critical eye on three players who are on the rise heading into Week 16: 1) Kyle Seager (2B/3B, SEA): Up through mid-June, Seager played up to his draft position. Recently he’s taken off, playing himself into a higher [...]
