What we think about, when we think about Dustin Ackley

One of these days, Dustin Ackley - the 1B-OF who came over in Cashman's trade deadline deal-making ibogaine-delirium, and who was supposed to replace Garrett Jones, "the glove of stones," but who suddenly reported back problems, which the honest-as-the-day-is-long Seattle Mariners brain trust knew ABSOLUTELY NOTHING about, when they dealt his ass like a basket of peach pits...

Yankees get Dustin Ackley from Mariners for two minor leaguers

The Seattle Mariners didn’t figure to make too much noise before Friday’s trade deadline. But the team did finally cut loose a top draft pick that just never developed into the star he was projected to be. Dustin Ackley was traded to the New York Yankees on Thursday in exchange for two minor leaguers. The 27-year-old was Seattle’s No. 1 draft pick (selected second overall)...

Yankees finally get Dustin Ackley

By Jeff Sullivan The Yankees had been chasing Dustin Ackley for a while. I don’t know exactly how long the pursuit had gone on, but I remember rumors around the 2013 winter meetings, and they’ve popped up from time to time since. Somewhere, in the back of his mind, Brian Cashman maintained his interest in Ackley, and now he’s finally gotten Jack Zduriencik to crack, with...

Seattle Mariners: Three potential breakout players

1. Dustin Ackley, LF Mariners outfielder Dustin Ackley Ackley, the former number two overall pick, has been one of the most up-and-down players in the MLB. Some weeks he looks like the next superstar, and other weeks he slumps mightily. This inconsistency has led to many questions about his future. Ackley shined as a rookie in 2011, posting a .273 batting average. He hasn’t...

Should The Seattle Mariners trade Ackley And Walker?

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. The M’s...

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...

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 thinking...

Deep League Thoughts – Dustin Ackley

When I told Grey and JayWrong that I was going to do a deep league sleeper post on Dustin Ackley, the first thing they said was 'Simpsons did it! Simpsons did it!'. It's true, Dustin is a bit of a sloppy seconds here on the site for me as Jay already waxed both poetically and his taint when he wrote his own Dustin Ackley Sleeper post back in 2013. And what did we learn from this...
