James Paxton is the 2017 Seattle Mariners’ most important player

The Seattle Mariners are primed for a postseason run in 2017. They have a potent lineup headlined by Robinson Cano, Nelson Cruz, Kyle Seager, and new acquisition Jean Segura. Offense hopefully won’t be an issue. However, a deep playoff run also necessitates a solid pitching staff. The Chicago Cubs, winners of the 2016 World Series, had an excellent three-man rotation of Kyle Hendricks...

Ricky Taylor rolls into Sebring after huge breakthrough

There was just under seven minutes remaining in a 24-hour race when Ricky Taylor made the move that very well might define his career. That Taylor was even in position to make the race-winning pass in the Rolex 24 at Daytona was an honorable notch on his resume. He got the nod to close out January's season-opening race over sports car ace Max Angelelli, four-time NASCAR champion...

The Mariners Had to Love What They Just Saw

The World Baseball Classic is, of course, its own tournament, fully enjoyable all by itself. But if we’re honest with ourselves, we’ll concede that we think of the regular season first. So we watch the WBC with the year ahead very much in mind. The Seattle area had particular interest in Wednesday night’s game between Venezuela and the United States, in San Diego. The US was...

Seattle’s Grand Outfield Experiment

The Mariners are trying something that has never been attempted before. In Jarrod Dyson, Mitch Haniger, and Leonys Martin they’re rolling out three legitimate center fielders. We’re in love with fly balls right now, but fly balls will not love Seattle this season. There’s obviously some precedent for strong defensive outfields. The Cubs and Royals, for example, have both appeared...

Is Nelson Cruz Showing Any Signs of Slowing Down?

Like a fine wine, Seattle Mariners designated hitter Nelson Cruz has gotten better with age. He had consistently been a force in the middle of the Texas Rangers’ lineup since becoming an everyday player in 2009, but he’s gone to another level in recent years. The slugger never collected fewer than 22 homers or 76 RBI in a single season with Texas, but also never hit more than...

Young OF Haniger won't go unnoticed after trade to Mariners

PEORIA, Ariz. (AP) Some people viewed young outfielder Mitch Haniger as a throw-in prospect in the offseason deal that got the Seattle Mariners top-notch shortstop Jean Segura. The Mariners certainly never felt that way about Haniger, even though he has played in only 34 major league games. Not only did Seattle want Segura in its lineup, general manager Jerry Dipoto and manager...

MUST SEE: *****in’ Seattle Mariners Camaro

It’s no secret…you can find just about anything on eBay. And while they’re not the most popular items sold (let’s face it…local pickup always causes some headaches), vehicles always get a ton of looks. This one is certainly no different. No, your eyes are not deceiving you, that is most definitely a 1983 Chevy Camaro with a custom Seattle Mariners paint job. The best job…that’s...

Monday is Seattle Mariners outfielder Leonys Martin’s 29th birthday. Happy birthday, Leonys! As a birthday gift to Martin, his Mariners teammates hired a mariachi band to follow him around (and play their music, naturally) at the team’s Spring Training home, the Peoria Sports Complex in Arizona.
