Some Belated Thoughts on the Miller-Karns Deal

Baseball’s hot stove season got off to an uncharacteristically early start this time around, as the Rays and Mariners made a “challenge” type of trade, centering around two young, inexpensive players with plenty of years of control remaining, shortstop Brad Miller and starting pitcher Nate Karns. I agree with most of Dave Cameron’s thoughts in the immediate wake the trade...

Seattle Mariners Make 6 Player Trade to Rays Including Brad Miller

New Mariners GM Jerry DiPoto made his first big splash yesterday, making a 6 player trade with the Tampa Bay Rays.  The deal shows a stark change in philosophy from the old regime, so let’s take a look at it and what it means. Who We Gained The Mariners got a total of 3 players on the deal.  First is reliever C.J. Riefenhauser.  Riefenhauser is a 25 year old relief pitcher...

The Mariners turned a bizarre 3-6-2 triple play

By TOC Locker  On Sunday, the Seattle Mariners turned a triple play that will go down as one of the most bizarre I’ve ever seen. Ryan Goins grounded to Mark Trumbo at first base. Trumbo stepped on the bag for the first out, and threw to shortstop Brad Miller. Kevin Pillar got in a rundown, and Miller eventually ignored Pillar and fired home to catcher Mike Zunino. Zunino then...

Miller identifies positives from Mariners' recent road trip

Though the Seattle Mariners lost 6-2 on Tuesday, splitting a pair of games in San Francisco against the Giants, shortstop Brad Miller was pleased with what he saw.  For Miller, returning to the Bay Area was a treat - having visited AT&T Park as a teenager - so hitting a home run was especially meaningful for him.  As he told Greg Johns of, Miller drew a few positives...

Mariners' Miller named A.L. Player of the Week after blazing performance

Brad Miller, the Seattle Mariners shortstop-turned-outfielder-turned-explosive-hitter was rewarded for a recent hot streak by being named the American League's Player of the Week on Monday. Despite not really agreeing with the team's decision to start using him as a 'super utility'-type player, he's excelled offensively over the past week. To wit: While he may not agree with manager...

Winter Meetings: Mets Approached Mariners About Chris Taylor and Brad Miller

Potentially some good news on the Chris Taylor front. Reporting from the Winter Meetings in San Diego, sources have told Adam Rubin that the Mets have had discussions with the Seattle Mariners about both of their young shortstops — Taylor and Brad Miller. Some reports have suggested that Seattle may keep both of them, playing Taylor at short and Miller in the outfield, but I think...

Mariners Could Trade Shortstops Brad Miller or Chris Taylor

Yesterday, Adam Rubin tweeted that the Mets and Mariners matched up well for a trade, according to a front office person and an agent. These two teams have reportedly been a good match for some time now, and we’ve reportedly scouted them a few times and they’ve scouted us. So this is nothing entirely new. But who do they have that we would want? We can throw away the earlier...

It’s Back To Square 1 For The Mariners At Shortstop

Struggling SS Equals Understatement How in the world did the Seattle Mariners wind up with this problem?  If you had asked me after spring training what the position to worry about on the Seattle Mariners roster I’m pretty sure I would not have said shortstop. Who would have? Less we forget that the M’s had an open competition at shortstop this spring between Nick Franklin...

Miller in competition for Seattle's shortstop job

The arrival of Robinson Cano suddenly left Brad Miller in the midst of a competition. Throughout his first experience last season with the Seattle Mariners, Miller showed signs at the plate and in the field that he could be a long-term answer at shortstop. And then the Mariners threw $240 million toward Cano, and Miller was left to enter spring training in a battle with teammate...

Mariners middle infielders… Who should go?

Cano is going to play 2nd base I’ve got 240 million reasons to believe that Robinson Cano, the Seattle Mariners‘ newly acquired superstar, will be playing 2nd base come opening day.  That presents a mini-dilemma for Jack Z and Lloyd McClendon, as they already have a couple of young middle infielders, and one of them is going to have to go. Brad Miller Brad Miller is the M...
