 Reaction: How the Heck did that Happen? Mariners swept by Twins

Had anyone told me that the Seattle Mariners (28-20) would get swept and handily defeated by the Minnesota Twins (14-24) this weekend against Felix Hernandez, Wade Miley, and Taijuan Walker I would have thought that you weren’t aware of how dominant the M’s have been and there was no way that was going to happen.

Well the Mariners did not, in fact, win today. That means they just got swept, at home...

Leonys Martin Stopped Being a Slap Hitter

I keep a little notebook next to my computer, so I can keep track of potential things to write about. Generally, topics break down into two categories: there are the topics that practically need to be written about, and there are the possible topics to monitor. Maybe those need bigger sample sizes; maybe those just need to become more interesting. Some of those topics turn into posts...

Seattle Mariners: tough weekend is nothing to worry about

I was at all three games this weekend, so I experienced the first-hand pain of a sweep that featured two blown saves at home. It’s really easy to get caught up in every loss the Seattle Mariners endure over the upcoming months, but I’m here to calm your nerves.
