NICK FRANKLIN RUMORS

Deep League Thoughts: Nick Franklin

Ah, the middle infield. Can you think of any other fantasy position where people praise mediocrity more than here? I owned Daniel Murphy in 2014 and it was great! Kudos to you, my friend...kudos. Pardon me if my pants don't get tight about someone who has a 10/15 season. That's just not for me because you're drafting to not get hurt rather than drafting to succeed. What happened...

It’s Back To Square 1 For The Mariners At Shortstop

Struggling SS Equals Understatement How in the world did the Seattle Mariners wind up with this problem?  If you had asked me after spring training what the position to worry about on the Seattle Mariners roster I’m pretty sure I would not have said shortstop. Who would have? Less we forget that the M’s had an open competition at shortstop this spring between Nick Franklin...

The Seattle Mariners recall Nick Franklin

Switch-Hitting Franklin back with M’s This morning Nick Franklin tweeted that he was flying to Texas, presumably to join the Mariners as they face off with the Rangers again. And it couldn’t come at a better time for the Mariners who have been streaky on offense. Where will Franklin fit in? Brad Miller, the man that won the shortstop job over Franklin by hitting .410 in spring...

Will Mets Have Revived Interest In Nick Franklin?

The trade buzz on Nick Franklin is picking up again as both the Yankees and Tigers continue to get meager production from their shortstop position. And while there’s nothing to suggest that the Mets have any revived interest in the Mariners prospect, that could change if Ruben Tejada doesn’t start picking it up at the plate. Franklin, who just turned 23, is currently tearing...

Don’t Sleep on Nick Franklin

Around this time last year, many people thought Nick Franklin, the 79th best prospect in the nation according to Baseball America, was the Mariners’ shortstop of the future.  At the very least, if Franklin’s glove didn’t stick at short, he was expected to hold down second base for the next six years. Franklin caught fire when he was called up in May.  He finished the first...

Speculation continues on Seattle Mariner’s Nick Franklin

Where could Franklin land and for who? Despite the fact that Seattle Mariner’s skipper Lloyd McClendon has publicly stated that the shortstop competition between Nick Franklin and Brad Miller is a wide open chase, and that GM Jack Zduriencik has also stated that the loser of the competition is headed to AAA, the most common thought on the street is that the M’s are trying to...

Nick Franklin and his 50/50 future

One thing I learned a long time ago was not to make sweeping statements that I cannot back up with facts. Doing so is one reason that Tim McCarver was so often skewered by the Twitter crowd. Facts are much harder to argue about. I have been curious about Nick Franklin ever since Robinson Cano signed his mega-deal and made Franklin moot for the Mariners. That team has been taking...
