Seattle Mariners: Right not to sell?

July was an excellent month for the Seattle Mariners.  The young bats that the Seattle front office had waited for had started to produce (Michael Saunders, Justin Smoak) along with some unexpected contributions (Brad Miller, Nick Franklin).  Combined with Seattle’s already strong starting pitching, the Mariners moved from sellers to standing pat at the trade deadline.  However...

Felix Hernandez is a Cy Young candidate

Will Felix be King in 2013? Seattle Mariners starting pitcher, Felix Hernandez, signed a fully guaranteed, $175 million, 7-year deal this off-season to continue being a perennial Cy Young contender.  So far, he has lived up to his end of the deal.

My oh My! Top play of the week for the Seattle Mariners

A tribute to the Kid So, as the Mariners seem to be on to the next year already, let’s use this space to talk about the most important Mariners player of all time: Ken Griffey Jr. We can forget about a run at the Wild Card.

Wily Peralta goes toe-to-toe with All-Star Felix Hernandez

Wily Peralta got a bit of Felix Hernandez's medicine while squaring off against four-time All-Star right-hander Sunday afternoon. Hernandez has been a tough-luck loser often in his career, as his Seattle Mariners have struggled to support him with runs. In Sunday's series finale, Hernandez was dominant over eight scoreless innings. Peralta was very good himself and went...

Mariners top Rays behind two homers by Brad Miller

Mariners rookie Brad Miller figured the big memory of his homecoming night would be his pregame chance to reunite here with dozens of well-wishers from his hometown. That would prove one huge miscalculation once the native of the Orlando Fla. suburb of Windemere drilled the third pitch of Tuesday night’s game over the wall in right-center field. His section of family and friends...
