Offseason moves…what do the Mariners do in the outfield?

The Fences Are Coming In! The question is: With young outfielders everywhere, what should the Seattle Mariners do this offseason to solidify 7, 8 & 9? The heart of the matter in Seattle is that the Mariners need more production from their bats. With the strength of Jack Zduriencik’s draft classes in the infield, mainly 2B Dustin Ackley, 3B Kyle Seager, and eventually SS Nick...

Hey Seattle Mariners fans! Could it be our time?

Are they really doing this? Well friends, as the MLB All Star Game approached, it seemed the only thing the local media was willing to talk about in regards to this Mariners team was how terrible they had been at home. They were on pace for a historically futile season in the confines of Safeco Field, the power numbers were terrible, the team batting average was 20+ points below...

What in the sam hell has gotten into our beloved Mariners?

8 game win streak So, we have a winner in town, and it’s not even football season yet. Our team has won 10 of their last 11 overall and eight in a row at home. The Seattle Mariners are having one of the best second halves in baseball, and it all started (pretty much) when they traded long time RF Ichiro. Just like after the 2000 season, when we found ourselves without the big...
