Game 121, Orioles at Mariners – Women in Baseball Night

Andrew Albers vs. Wade Miley, 7:10pm The game last night continued a slide that’s seen the M’s fall from sole possession of the 2nd wildcard to being a team tied for 4th behind Anaheim. Last night’s win elevated Baltimore into a tie with Seattle in the wildcard chase, and cut Seattle’s playoff odds from over 20% about a week ago to 8% now. It’s been a rough week. It may...

Seattle Mariners: Musings of a Season-ticket holder

In the interest of fair disclosure, let me say that I am a huge dyed-in-the-wool Seattle Mariners fan and I have been since 1977. In the last couple years I have been dismayed by the increasing exclusivity of the sport at the major league level. Yes I understand that it is a business and profits must be made. However, MLB and its affiliates are pricing normal people away from and...

Is there too much reminiscing on the Mariners’ 1995 season?

The Mariners’ 1995 season saw some of the most iconic moments in franchise history, including “The Double,” a Cy Young Award for Randy Johnson and a first-time appearance in the postseason. The cheer of the crowd as Ken Griffey Jr. slid home to score the winning run against the Yankees has been revisited time and time again on the Safeco Field scoreboard. But at some point...

Moore: Mariners’ season is looking grim

I’m not sure why I kept watching ‘til the end, probably because I wanted to see Thyago Vieira make his Major-League debut. I also thought it would be fun to see Carlos Ruiz pitch if summoned in a blowout game to preserve arms in the bullpen. This Mariners’ season has gotten grim. They lost 11-3 to the Orioles Monday night, suffering their fifth consecutive defeat. It’s becoming...

The '27 up, 27 down' quiz

On this date five years ago, Felix Hernandez retired all 27 Tampa Bay Rays batters that he faced en route to the 23rd perfect game in MLB history. Oddly enough, it was the third perfect game in 2012 (the most ever in one season) and there have not been any perfect games in the half-decade since. For the five-year anniversary, Larry Stone of the Seattle Times compiled an oral history...

Mariners To Select Contract Of Andrew Albers

The Mariners will select the contract of just-acquired lefty Andrew Albers, per MLB.com’s Greg Johns (via Twitter). He’ll step into the rotation spot that opened when James Paxton hit the DL. It’s not yet known how the M’s will clear roster space, but corresponding moves will need to be made before the scheduled start tomorrow. Albers is not on the 40-man roster, as he was...

Game 120, Orioles at Mariners – Two Struggling Rotations Collide

Yovani Gallardo vs. Kevin Gausman, 7:10pm So I’ve just flown off on vacation, and to make things interesting, I’ve come down with some stupid illness, so I don’t think I can watch this one. Did the series against the Angels literally sicken me? We can’t rule it out, friends. The Orioles were supposed to be a team that could win despite a lackluster rotation. They had a...

Mariners recall Thyago Vieira, option Christian Bergman to AAA

I, for one, welcome our new fastball relief overlord. Many of us likely have the Monday doldrums, especially after a tough weekend series against the “Los Angeles” Angels. Fortunately, however, there’s good news on the horizon, and it’s wearing a Brazilian cape: In the short-term, it’s hard not to be excited about this move. Vieira was only added to the 40-man roster this...

Mariners swept on Edgar’s weekend, fall from Wild Card lead

Mariners swept on Edgar’s weekend, fall from Wild Card lead This was supposed to be a weekend of celebration and elation as the Seattle Mariners could not find any mojo against the feckless LA Angels. Three of the games were comeback losses that saw a team suffer bullpen meltdowns as strong starting pitching performances were wasted. Timely hitting was missing too which seems...

The Seattle Mariners are finally beginning to look like a playoff team

With a 6-3 win against the Oakland Athletics last night, as well as losses by the Kansas City Royals and Tampa Bay Rays, the Seattle Mariners moved into playoff position all season. The year has been quite a struggle, with injuries to multiple key contributors and a string of seemingly unbreakable bad luck, but the Mariners have continued to find ways to win games and keep themselves...

Mariners place pitchers Felix Hernandez, David Phelps on DL

The contending Seattle Mariners were dealt double bad news on Tuesday. Both starting pitcher Felix Hernandez and reliever David Phelps will miss extended time. It’s been a rough season for Hernandez. This is King Felix’s second DL stint of the season. When he’s pitched, he’s struggled. Hernandez’s ERA (4.28) and WHIP (1.357) are both up from 2016, which was the worst season...

Seattle Mariners: Can they keep in the Wild Card hunt?

As the calendar turns to August, the baseball season is down to a mere two months.  What looked like was going to be a stellar 2017 for the Seattle Mariners has been waylaid by injuries.  Yesterday, we learned of the latest victim: a second trip to the DL for Felix Hernandez.  We know for a fact that Drew Smyly won’t be pitching this season, and it seems like Hisashi Iwakuma...

Let’s All Agree That James Paxton Is One of the Best Pitchers Around

James Paxton had a pretty bad June. His season got off to a wonderful start, but then he landed on the DL, and shortly after his return, the calendar flipped and pitching was hard again. Paxton in June ran a 7+ ERA, and opponents blasted him to the tune of a .395 wOBA. Something appeared to be seriously wrong, but Paxton blamed his mechanics, and not his health. He found that he...
