The Mariners were shut out Sunday and shut down during three losses in the prior four games when they scored a run total. Seven runs in Texas on Monday night quelled some of the angst. Yet, a question was often repeated: What about Kendrys Morales? Morales is a free agent still available...

Here’s A Great GIF of Kyle Seager Half-Heartedly Swinging At An Awful Pitch In The Dirt

It’s hard not to feel kind of bad for Mariners third baseman Kyle Seager here. He knew the pitch was awful and he had no chance of hitting it, but the hit-and-run call was on so he was pretty much forced to swing at it anyways, giving us this hilarious highlight. It’s almost like you can see Seager’s thought process on the sequence: “okay, hit-and-run…gotta swing no matter...

Mariners knock off Rangers, 7-1

In the hitter friendly confines of Globe Life Park, a place that’s cured many a slump, the Seattle’s bats came to life on a night when it shouldn’t have been good for hitting. With temperatures in the mid- to high-40s and winds swirling, the bundled up Mariners felt right...

Seattle Mariners: Week in review

COOLING DOWN:  After winning their home opener, the Seattle Mariners have dropped three of their last four games.  Felix Hernandez’s third win of the season propped the Mariners back into first in the A.L. West for a day, but they now trail the A’s after dropping the final two games of that three game set.  Still, on the plus side, the Mariners have went 6-5 on a rough stretch...
