Remember when nobody wanted Nelson Cruz? He’d been with the Rangers but his contract had ended and steroids and everyone was like, “Nooooo thanks.” Well, not exactly everybody. After a long time the Mariners called and reportedly had a short deal done with Cruz before the front office nixed it. I picture former team president […]

Seattle Mariners: Reasons to believe

Through 29 games, the Seattle Mariners stand at 12-17, 6.5 games back of Houston and 4.5 games back of the Wild Card race.

Seattle Mariners: Trip to L.A. unkind

Well, to put it bluntly, Los Angeles was very unkind to the Seattle Mariners.  Coming off back-to-back extra innings victories, the Mariners dropped three straight to the Dodgers to fall to 3-6 on the season.  For those of you who like me always have an eye on the standings, this puts Seattle into dead last in the A.L. West.  But, considering we’re not even one-tenth done with...
