Mike Zunino and Player Development

Appreciate current success by remembering failures of the past. As bossman Nathan wrote earlier this week, Mike Zunino has made some pretty severe adjustments and turned himself into one hell of a baseball player. Zunino was rushed through the minors, showed some flashes early, and then struggled under the supposedly watchful eye of Jack Z and the former front office. Zunino had...

Gary Sanchez has impressed just about everyone since his since call-up earlier this month.

Mike Zunino’s Subtle Changes and Not-So-Subtle Results

Mike Zunino won the M’s another ball game last night with a late 3-run dinger. He crushed a pitch over the right field wall after laying off a two-strike slider the pitch before. It was, as many pointed out on twitter afterwards, a perfect encapsulation of how 2016 Mike Zunino differs from the 2015 version, who may recall was one of the worst hitters in recent memory. The transformation...

Seattle’s Newest Phenom Is Keeping The Mariners In The Postseason Race

In May, the Seattle Mariners’ front office announced that they were going to begin converting top pitching prospect Edwin Diaz from a starter to a reliever. This was somewhat of a controversial move at the time, as it seemingly diminished the value of the 22-year-old Diaz, the Mariners’ reigning minor-league Starting Pitcher of the Year the last two seasons.

The baseball season is a marathon, not a sprint.  For the Seattle Mariners, that cliché means they’re right back in the thick of the American League playoff race.  After what could’ve been a season derailing loss to the Chicago Cubs on Sunday Night Baseball where the Cubs rallied from down 6-0 to win 7-6 in 12 innings, the Mariners were a mere one game over .500 at 52-51. ...
