Sporcle Friday: Mariners single-season win leaders (with matching!)

Matchmaker, matchmaker, make me a match. Howdy, folks. This week's quiz is a little bit different.

(Or poking with your finger if you're on mobile, I guess.) The topic is a fairly simple one: Mariners...

The Mariners aren't going to make any trades that make you happy

Everyone loves a sexy trade deadline deal. The Mariners are not going to make one of those. The trade deadline is in four days. It's on July 31st every year, but this year it's on Sunday and apparently Branch Rickey made the rules around the trade deadline or something, so NO TRADES ON THE SABBATH, and this year's deadline falls on August 1st. The Mariners have a team within spitting...

White Sox refused to tip Mariners’ clubhouse attendants in protest of new policy

It’s been quite an interesting few days for Chicago White Sox in regard to clubhouse-related stories. By now you likely know of White Sox ace Chris Sale being sent home on Saturday — on a day he was supposed to start — and then being suspended five days by the organization, after literally cutting up throwback uniforms so that the team couldn’t wear them.

Seattle Mariners Might Be Stuck, Even in Seller’s Market

The Seattle Mariners are in a tough spot. They’re not a bad team, sitting a game over .500. By both Pythagorean wins and BaseRuns, they profile a few games better than that. Over the course of the rest of the season, they’re expected to continue to be a bit above average and our projections have them finishing at 83-79 for the year. That’s not a bad season — and if the team...
