Mariners get past Cleveland on Chavez’s homer

The 28,084 at Safeco Field on Friday night saw the twin oddities of a 7-6-3 double play and an Endy Chavez home run. They also saw something that for a time this year might have seemed unusual but is now beginning to become the norm — another Mariner win. Chavez hit his first home run since May 30, 2013, a span of 265 plate appearances, as the Mariners held on to beat the Cleveland...

Seattle Survives Late Rally to Take Series Opener; Mariner 3, Indians 2

Close, but no cigar. Trevor Bauer pitched into the seventh inning, his best start on the road during his young Major League career, but it wasn’t enough to log his first victory away from Progressive Field. A home run by Endy Chavez was enough for the Seattle Mariners to win 3-2 Friday evening, despite a late, ninth inning rally by the Tribe. Chavez wreaked havoc all evening on...

Endy Chavez, Really Seattle Mariners? Really?

As a testament to how barren the Seattle Mariners’ farm system is of anywhere near major league ready bats, the team brought up 12-year journeyman and 36-year-old OF Endy Chavez over the weekend to help plug some holes in the lineup, as Robinson Cano remained out with a hand contusion.  Cano is listed as day to day, and with Logan Morrison now on rehab assignment, Chavez’s stint...

Ojeda Tabs Lagares As His Breakthrough Player for 2014

Nick asks… Is Juan Lagares an everyday player? He seems more like a Endy Chavez defensive substitute type to me, but I keep hearing that he has a hold on the everyday center field job. Do you think his bat will develop or will we see the same offensive production we saw last season? Any idea what kind of numbers we should look forward to? Teddy replies… I don’t think Lagares...

Why I can’t watch playoff baseball

Yes, it’s totally immature. It’s selfish and just wrong. But I can’t watch playoff baseball. Let me start off by saying baseball is the greatest game on this planet. I live and breathe the game.

Subway Series Game 1 - Gardner goes Endy, but Mets win

When Brett Gardner pulled an Endy Chavez and robbed Daniel Murphy of a two-run homer, the Mets appeared headed for another ignominious defeat at the hands of the Yankees. But the Mets overcame Gardner's play of the year, thanks to David Wright's game-tying homer and Murphy's game winning hit. Jon Niese lowered his ERA to 4.40, which is pretty good considering it was 5...
