TAIJUAN WALKER RUMORS

The Good and the Worse of Taijuan Walker’s Changeup

It’s obvious, now, that Taijuan Walker is going to enter the season as a member of the Mariners’ rotation.

Should The Seattle Mariners trade Ackley And Walker?

The Time For A Deal Is Now The Seattle Mariners have a problem and it’s not a new problem either. Fresh out of the All-Star break the same thing that haunts this team is still present.  I guess I shouldn’t have expected it to go away just because the M’s had a few days off. The problem is easily identifiable if you watched the most recent series against the Angels. The M’s...
