Seattle Mariners: A new Catcher, Robbie Cano dissatisfied(?), and more

New Mariners Catcher, Chris Ianetta A new Catcher The Mariners, desperately thin at Catcher, signed former LA Angel (of Santa Monica), Chris Ianetta. The 32 year old, Ianetta is a 10 year veteran who should help the young and struggling Mike Zunino out.

Seattle Mariners: Starting catcher Mike Zunino optioned to Triple-A Tacoma

In Jackie Z’s last move, and probably one of the few all Mariner fans can agree on, 24-year-old catcher Mike Zunino was sent down to the Tacoma Rainers. The optioning of Zunino is most likely short-lived as the Rainers only have 11 games left in their season (plus playoffs). One can’t say Zunino hasn’t been given a chance — he leads the American League with 112 games at catcher...

The Mariners turned a bizarre 3-6-2 triple play

On Sunday, the Seattle Mariners turned a triple play that will go down as one of the most bizarre I’ve ever seen. Ryan Goins grounded to Mark Trumbo at first base. Trumbo stepped on the bag for the first out, and threw to shortstop Brad Miller. Kevin Pillar got in a rundown, and Miller eventually ignored Pillar and fired home to catcher Mike Zunino. Zunino then ran Ezequiel...

Lloyd McClendon gets ejected, loses mind on umpires

Seattle Mariners manager Lloyd McClendon and catcher Mike Zunino were both ejected during Tuesday night’s Mariners-Yankees game after an appeal on a checked swing by Alex Rodriguez. McClendon then lost his damn mind and went on a ridiculous tirade directed at all four umpires. This was a bit juvenile from McClendon, but what do you expect? Seattle lost three in a row coming into...

WATCH: Lloyd McClendon has all-time meltdown

Lloyd McClendon was ejected from the third inning of Tuesday’s Mariners-Yankees game, and the Seattle manager sure got his money’s worth while being run from the contest.

Zunino showing progress on offense - and Mariners like what they're seeing

Young Seattle Mariners catcher Mike Zunino got off to a terrible start in 2015 offensively, striking out a ton and displaying issues with bat control and selectivity as a hitter.That seems to be changing in light of some recent offensive success, including a two-home run game on Tuesday night against San Diego. As he told Shannon Drayer of ESPN Seattle, Zunino credited that recent...

Mike Zunino’s Keeping Unusual Company

It’s a sign of the times that, when you think about Mike Zunino, you might well first think of his defense. He’s proven himself to be a tremendous receiver of pitches, and when you fold in the rest of his defensive skillset, Zunino has a lot of value, even independent of his bat. There’s evidence […]

Zunino and Buck Seattle Mariners Catcher Spotlight

Can the wiley old vet help out the rook? I find that the catching story of the 2014 Seattle Mariners might be one of the most interesting yet most under-reported stories of the upcoming MLB season. Then again, maybe I’m just a former catcher trying to glorify the toughest position to play in baseball.   Either way, here’s a look at the two backstops the M’s will deploy behind...

Mike Zunino: 2014 Fantasy Sleeper

Here’s to hoping Zunino doesn’t follow in Jesus Montero’s footsteps. Another Mariners top hitting prospect with more buzz than Major League III: Back to the Minors, another disappointing season. Mike Zunino was the 3rd overall pick in the 2012 amateur draft and quickly climbed the ranks to become the first position player from that year’s draft class to be promoted to The...
