WATCH: Bryce Harper HR nails Safeco Field restaurant window

Safeco Field is arguably one of the toughest places to hit a home run in Major League Baseball, so why did Bryce Harper make it look so easy in the 2nd inning? Because he’s Bryce Harper.

Let’s Get Creative: What The Seattle Mariners Should Do

People will think I’m crazy when the read this next sentence, and most will disagree. The Mariners should trade starting pitcher Hisashi Iwakuma. There, I said it. This has been, in my opinion, my best trade idea. Sure, Iwakuma was incredible last season. But now, lets delve into this idea and the madness behind it all. First and foremost, Iwakuma is 32.
