NICK FRANKLIN RUMORS

Athletics Rumors: Mariners' Nick Franklin a 'top target' for Oakland

The Oakland Athletics are now only two games over the Los Angeles Angels in the AL West and they could be exploring options for second base ahead of the trade deadline. Current second baseman Eric Sogard has been injured and played in his first game since July 12 on Sunday against the Baltimore Orioles. However, his roster spot remains in limbo as the A's begin looking elsewhere...

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...

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...
