Robinson Cano not happy in Seattle

It appears the honeymoon phase between Robinson Cano and the Seattle Mariners may be wearing off. Sources, including Michael Kay on his radio show on Monday, are speculating that Cano, just a year and a few months into his mega contract with the M’s, is unhappy in Seattle. The reasons include the lack of a Dominican population in Seattle, which is about as far away from the DR...

Kay: Robinson Cano Is Miserable in Seattle

Robinson Cano went 0-4 with two strikeouts last night/this morning in the Yankees 7-2 win at Seattle.  He is batting just .246 this season, with two home runs and 16 RBIs. What's the reason for this? On his radio show yesterday, Yankees play-by-play announcer Michael Kay offered up a theory that, apparently, is shared by several others: Robinson Cano is miserable in Seattle.Instead...

Robinson Cano’s 2015 struggles are cause for concern

In the past, when we talk about Robinson Cano we think perennial All-Star, best second baseman in the league and a top-10 if not top-five player in Major League Baseball. Today? Well let’s just say Cano is sort of an afterthought. With the emergence of Jose Altuve and Jason Kipnis, the days of Cano and Dustin Pedroia commanding the attention as the best second basemen in baseball...

Michael Pineda Outduels Felix Hernandez in Seattle

Back in 2012, the Mariners and Yankees executed a trade that sent pitcher Michael Pineda to the Yankees for catcher and big bat Jesus Montero. The Yankees were in search of pitching at the time while the Mariners were in dire need of a bat and that is why this was supposedly a great trade for both sides. Pineda had just made the All Star game for Seattle while Montero was breaking...

Seattle Mariners: Shortstop Chris Taylor sent down to Triple A

Dissatisfied with the bullpen inadequacies, Mariners Manager Lloyd McClendon optioned starting shortstop Chris Taylor to Triple A Tacoma to bring up right-handed relief pitcher prospect Mayckol Guaipe. The addition of Guaipe puts the M’s at 8 relievers to use during the 3 game stretch versus the New York Yankees. In 2015, Mayckol has a record of 0-2 with three saves in 16 appearances...

James Paxton to miss time with strained tendon in finger

Seattle Mariners left-handed starter James Paxton left his start early on Thursday with a 'twinge' in his finger, and that turned out to be worthy of a stint on the disabled list.  That was the word on Friday, when the club placed him on the 15-day D.L. with a diagnosis of a strained tendon in his middle finger (via Bob Dutton of the News Tribune).  The team is preparing itself...

It was one of those evenings at Safeco Field where it was so beautiful that you just couldn’t stop taking pictures of the picturesque skyline and sunset that was right in front of your eyes. It’s what makes Safeco Field and Seattle one of the best settings in all of baseball to watch a game, and it sure made for a good setting for Mariners pitcher Taijuan Walker who had it going...

Seattle Mariners: Turning the corner

Sometimes being away from home does you some good.  For the Seattle Mariners, they have hopefully turned a corner ending a nine game road trip strong with a series victory in Toronto against the Blue Jays, and a sweep of the Rays in Tampa.  With the sweep, Seattle is back up to .500 at 23-23.  The Mariners haven’t been at .500 since the Opening Week of the season when they ended...

The Seattle Mariners Dustin Ackley Watch Continues

Ackley Still With The Club But Not Playing Much The Seattle Mariners are playing their best baseball of 2015 so far.  They suddenly find themselves back at the .500 level in terms of their record, the bats are all heating up, and the pitching staff, with a few changes, looks to be returning to their dominate form of 2014.

Seattle Mariners’ Kyle Seager Continues To Impress

M’s 3rd Baseman Shining Bright The MLB draft has to be the least predictable of the four major professional sports.  In the NFL, NBA, and the NHL, a first round draft pick is far more likely to find a reasonable amount of success in their chosen sport.  In baseball, even the top picks don’t pan out nearly as often they fail.

McClendon still backs Rodney as Mariners' closer

Seattle Mariners closer Fernando Rodney has had some adventures on the mound this season. Despite picking up 13 saves, he's allowed 15 earned runs in 19 1/3 innings pitched and seemingly has to walk a high-wire act to emerge with the save - and the Mariners' win - intact. On Tuesday night, Rodney blew a lead in the ninth inning, a game Seattle eventually won in extras. Lefty Joe...
