DUSTIN ACKLEY RUMORS

Royals edged by Mariners' ninth-inning run

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Dustin Ackley drove in the go-ahead run with a two-out ninth inning single as the Seattle Mariners beat the Kansas City Royals 2-1 on Saturday.

Seattle Mariners’ offense struggles again

The Seattle Mariners got off to a sizzling start, owning first place in the A.L. West after a win over Oakland last Friday.  But, what a difference a week makes.  Seattle fell to under .500 for the first time this season after dropping three out of four games to the Texas Rangers.  With all the questions about starting pitching and the murderous early season schedule, this is...

Seattle Mariners: Bats starting to shine in regular season

Dustin Ackley and Justin Smoak answering the call If you follow me at all, you know that I’ve been on the case of Dustin Ackley and Justin Smoak for some time now.  I called for Seattle Mariners general manager Jack Zdriencik to trade Ackley last year, and while I haven’t been ready to embrace letting Smoak go, I did say this spring that this season is both of their last chances...

Break on Through to the Other Side Dustin Ackley

Dustin Ackley was the 2nd overall pick in the 2009 Amateur Draft and debuted with the Mariners in 2011, on June 17th. Before his callup, with Tacoma, in the Pacific Coast League, Ackley slashed .303/.421/.487 and continued on at the highest level to the tune of .273/.348/.417. Respectable numbers, especially from the two-bag and Dustin Ackley was on the fantasy radar and a trendy...

Restored confidence has Seattle hopeful in Ackley

When Dustin Ackley came out of college as the No. 2 pick in the 2009 amateur draft, the one thing the Seattle Mariners were certain about was the kid could hit. His position on the field, though, was always in question - was he a second baseman, an outfielder? - but no one doubted the purity of Ackley's swing. Early in his career, the results followed. And then Ackley started...

Seattle Mariners: Deals by the deadline?

For 2013, the Seattle Mariners find themselves almost to the midway point.  The key in the offseason was to address the offense, which they did and has paid dividends.  The Mariners have gotten nice offensive boosts from Michael Morse, Raul Ibanez, and Kendrys Morales.  However, record wise, the Mariners are a little below what they probably hoped for at the beginning of the season...

Five reasons the Mariners Dustin Ackley takes the next step in 2013

It is Ackley’s Breakout Time! The 2009 number 2 overall pick has been fine, but the Mariners need more than that in 2013. In the land of the rising sun, where the 2012 season began for the Seattle Mariners a year ago, 2B Dustin Ackley kicked off his sophomore season with a bang. In the 4th inning, Ackley took A’s pitcher Brandon McCarthy to dead center for his first home run...

Offensive struggles cause for concern for Mariners Ackley?

NWSB Insider and Seattle Mariners blogger Britton Ransford tells us the season long sophomore slump that Dustin Ackley has been going through in 2012. With Ackley tearing the cover off the ball in every level prior to the big leagues, this is cause for concern for the Mariners. Ackley has a new found fondness of striking out that never has plagued him before in his career, and his...

Seattle Mariners off to a fast start

The Seattle Mariners got the season off to a sluggish start hampered by their old friend, lack of offense, in splitting the first two games of the season against Oakland in Tokyo.  However, between that slow start of the season and this weekend, the Mariners’ bats have come alive.  The offense led the way twice to lead the Mariners to a weekend sweep of the A’s.  Seattle won...

Hey Jack Z? Who’s on first? Ackley’s on second. I don’t know is on third

Act Like Clowns? If you are like me, you struggle with making small talk in awkward social situations.  So I have compiled a small list that I call my cheat sheet to get me through some of these difficult moments. Instead of asking someone what they do for work and have to sit and listen to them tell me about them drone on and on about a job that I don’t understand or care about...
