Stephen Strasburg is coming to Seattle this weekend with the Washington Nationals to face the Seattle Mariners in a rare interleague game.

Another flash or is this the real Ack?
Rarely do you see a player with a more crazy up and down, hot or not story as that of the Seattle Mariner’s Dustin Ackley.

The Time For A Deal Is Now
The Seattle Mariners have a problem and it’s not a new problem either.
Fresh out of the All-Star break the same thing that haunts this team is still present. I guess I shouldn’t have expected it to go away just because the M’s had a few days off.
The problem is easily identifiable if you watched the most recent series against the Angels.
After losing a tough series to the Angels to open up the second half of the season, the Seattle Mariners won last night, knocking off the lowly Mets at home. During the win, Dustin Ackley had somewhat of an amazing catch to rob the Mets of a home run.
