M’s Skipper Lloyd McClendon mid-season report card

How Has The Skip Performed? Sometimes I think the media forgets that it’s not 100% about the players.  Coaches and managers definitely play a role in how their teams perform. There is no exception for the Seattle Mariners newly anointed Skipper, Lloyd McClendon either. I think it’s time we pay some attention to the skipper, the moves he’s made and the other decisions that...

WATCH: Umpire get drilled in mask by flying bat

This was a pretty scary moment from Wednesday night’s Twins-Mariners game. Eduardo Nunez fouled off a pitch from Brandon Maurer and lost his grip on the bat after the swing. Nunez’s bat then smacked home plate umpire Gabe Morales in the mask. The sound it made was just gross, and I’m thankful that Morales wasn’t seriously injured. I don’t know if anything could have really...

DraftKings – I Can’t Take Much Maurer Of This

I'm a self-confessed/afflicted Mariners fan. I have been since the days of The Kid, Bones and 'The Martinez Brothers'.

Fast forward 19 years - make sure you don't wear out your VCR doing that,...

How The Pitching Staff Is Saving The Seattle Mariners’ Season

As the Seattle Mariners hover just below .500 at 21-22, 6.5 games out of first place in the AL West but only 1.5 games out of the wild card, it comes as little surprise that pitching is keeping them in the conversation.  While the Mariners have had some timely hitting (and no, I don’t believe in “clutch”) to score 178 runs that ranks 15th in the majors, they’ve managed that...

Does Mariners need to sign Ervin Santana?

Does Seattle Mariners need to sign another pitcher? I say yes, because there is a hole in the pitching rotation and I don’t trust the abilities of Blake Beavan or Erasmo Ramirez, or Brandon Maurer. I would recommend Mariners to think about signing Ervin Santana, but i know the management of Mariners are very concerned about the draft pick compensation tied to Ervin Santana because...
