Wow. What a night. Great game. Well. Great 9th inning. The rally-caps came on and the M's almost pulled out a win after losing by 4 most of the night.
Your here to read about Mariners transactions. Well I'm hearing via Geoff Baker's twitter tonight that the following is about to take place.
Alex Liddi and Blake Beavan going to AAA in moves TBA tomorrow. Mike Carp and Stephen Pryor to DL. Erasmo Ramirez likely to start Thursday— Geoff Baker (@gbakermariners) June 13, 2012
Ramirez will likely be called up from AAA tomorrow. Franklin Gutierrez could be joining him as well since M's need OF defense.— Geoff Baker (@gbakermariners) June 13, 2012
Pretty shocking stuff. Carp has sucked most of the year when given a chance, so not shocking. Beavan is playing horrible. Ramirez is doing fine in AAA, so ya bring him back up. That's fine. He'll start Thursday it looks like.
As for Alex Liddi. I'm still shaking my head.
If Franklin Gutierrez comes back he'd likely slot back into the center field role, and Michael Saunders now with his HOT bat looks like he'll become the every day left fielder.
I'm fine with that too.
Oh and while i'm thinking about that. Speaking of Gutierrez coming up from AAA, go read our article posted on NWSportsBeat.com today http://nwsb.co/n5t0e
How is keeping Chone Figgins on this roster helping anybody at this point?
Someone. Anyone. Answer this for me please???? SMH
BEST OF MAXIM
Heading in to Seattle Mariners spring training there was word that Franklin Gutierrez had completely worked through his stomach issues, added nearly 20 lbs. of muscle and kept his speed.
By all accounts from Peoria he’d shown up to camp looking like an absolute stud of a major league center fielder.
Michael Saunders on the other hand was a bit of an afterthought...
The Seattle Mariners have placed outfielder Mike Carp and reliever Stephen Pryor on the 15-day disabled list, optioned pitcher Blake Beavan and infielder Alex Liddi to Triple-A Tacoma and called up a four-pack of players from the minors.
The Mariners made the moves on Wednesday prior to their game against the San Diego Padres. Outfielder Franklin Gutierrez was activated from the...
Who’s hot, who’s not?
The Seattle Mariners came out even again this week with a 3-3 record. The team played well including a combined No-Hit effort against the Los Angeles Dodgers. While the offense has certainly picked up, they seem to completely overpower their opponents or allow themselves to be the overpowered.
The team was outscored 23 to 36 by the Los Angeles combo of...
Brandon League’s struggles couldn’t have come at a worse time for the Seattle Mariners. League has four blown saves and owns a 4.18 ERA on the season. He has also issued 13 walks in only 28 innings. League has lost his job as closer to righty Tom Wilhelmsen.
The Mariners hope League gets his control problems under control and he regains his elite closer status that awarded...
The rave green is everywhere
In a pinch and need to find out when Steve Zakuani is coming back?
Or just need to find out the score of the Seattle Sounders when you’re working late and all you have is your phone?
Rest assured, I’ve got you covered with my favorite places for all things Sounders.

SEATTLE – Seattle Mariners scouting director Tom McNamara told Cougfan.com this weekend that his baseball club has had its eye on Washington State first baseman Taylor Ard for years. A local kid with a polished hitting repertoire is the kind you hate to lose to someone else, he said. That’s especially true for a club that’s spent nearly a decade trying to find a middle-of-the-order thumper.
Mariners ace Felix Hernandez says things have to change.
Hernandez allowed five runs in six ineffective innings and the Seattle Mariners lost to the San Diego Padres 5-4 Tuesday night.
''I'm tired of pitching like that,'' Hernandez said. ''I've got to do something about this.''
Hernandez (4-5) was making his first outing in 11 days. The...
Felix Rusty in Return, M’s Drop Series Opener
The Headline: Felix Hernandez returned to the mound, but rustiness and a lack of runs ruins the party for the Seattle Mariners.

Erasmo Ramirez - He was recently recalled from the minors where he pitched extremely well. The Mariners are going to insert him in to the rotation and given how well he pitched during his stint in triple AAA, coupled with the fact that he’s a ground ball pitcher (they tend to do well in spot starts) and Ramirez makes for an interesting case.
Barry Zito – (5-3), 41 K, 3.24 ERA...
Hot News for CF Franklin Gutierrez
We may never know what the Mariners’ players do on their off-days, what their pre-game rituals are, or what they talk to players about on the base paths (like, did Brendan Ryan just ask Albert Pujols for hitting advice?) We may never know. What we do hope for, though, is that during the offseason these players put in the time and energy to make something happen under the bright...
Ichiro Suzuki is the epitome of public enemy. In OPS leagues, there are two kinds of SAGNOFs: those who destroy your OPS and those who only have a minimal impact. Ichiro (and every sub .700 OPS player) is the former. Two of the main reasons people have loved him are his batting average and his steals. Well, this year he has a career low .266 batting average and only nine steals....
I have friends who ask, since they know that I'm their Way Too Into The NBA Guy, if it's OK to root for the Thunder, given the circumstances of their birth.Let's take this away from the ownership right away. The vast majority of NBA owners are, as we learned during the lockout, complete and utter scumbags, dirtballs, blackmail artists and thieves. The lockout just showed...
