SEATTLE -- Justin Smoak hit a three-run homer in the fifth inning and the Seattle Mariners beat Kansas City 4-0 on Tuesday night, putting the Royals' postseason hopes in serious jeopardy.

There can be a lot said about Justin Smoak, and most of it ever since his arrival in Seattle has been negative.
There has been lots of talk about him abandoning his switch hitter status, especially since his power numbers from the right side have been downright laughable.
Well that all ends now! Well it at least quells the argument until next year at least.
At the end of this season, the Seattle Mariners will have a decision to make. Do they make Kendrys Morales a qualifying offer - likely in the $14 million per year range, or do they let him walk via free agency. The Mariners desperately want to be competitive, but they have to do so on a budget far less than many AL competitors. Fortunately, they now have a successful and productive...

In light of the hip injury suffered by the Seattle Mariners Mike Carp we've learned today via Twitter from M's Seattle Times beat writer Geoff Baker that the team has recalled 1b Justin Smoak from the AAA farmclub Tacoma Rainiers.
He flew out of Nashville this morning, expected to be here in time to play tonight.

Perhaps the Justin Smoak ship will never arrive into port. The former #1 draft pick from South Carolina and the key ingredient of the Lee deal with the Rangers has never found a groove in the majors. And now at the age of 25, perhaps he never will. The Mariners just sent him down yesterday, their second most interesting transaction of the day.
