Twins Go Outside of AL Central Looking for Consistency

The Minnesota Twins had an interesting schedule to start the 2015 season when they opened with 15 straight games against fellow AL Central opponents, allowing them to really gauge where they stand. Despite this, not much was learned as the team has struggled to stay consistent. The Twins have played some bad baseball over the first few weeks of the 2015 season and they’ve also...

Daily SP Rankings: Friday, Apr 24

Felix Hernandez leads the way in a very favorable start against the Minnesota Twins. At the bottom is a Rangers reliever who’s not accustomed to starting games. Jon Lester at Cincinnati will be a big test, especially if Reds manager Bryan Price let’s Billy Hamilton play (which he didn’t in their matchup earlier this season). For you streamers, beware Scott Kazmir against...

Seattle Mariners: Starting rotation blues

It’s been a sluggish start to the season for the Seattle Mariners, coming out of the gates at 5-8.  For a team with high expectations in the preseason, it’s a little surprising.  What’s more surprising though than the slow start is the performance of the starting rotation.  Going into the third week of the season, only one starter has won a game.  Felix Hernandez, who has...

Glimmers Of Hope After A Tough Week: Mariners Get Sunday Walkoff Win

The last time I wrote about the Mariners, I was basking in the excitement of an Opening Day win. Felix Hernandez was his usual dominant self and the bats, surprisingly, found ways to support him. Since then, the M’s have been on a bit of a roller coaster ride. Seattle dropped the last two games against the Angels. That weekend, they took two out of three from rival Oakland –...

Rangers can't figure out Hernandez in loss to Mariners

SEATTLE (AP) -- For all the effort Colby Lewis exerted trying to work out of trouble, there were only two pitches that he really wanted back. One left the park off the bat of Seattle's Mike Zunino. The other was rattled into the right-field corner by Brad Miller for an RBI triple. With Felix Hernandez on the mound for Seattle, that was too much for the Texas Rangers to overcome....

Hernandez strikes out 12 to carry Mariners past Rangers

  Knowing his ace had a sore quadriceps muscle and was nearing 100 pitches, six innings from Felix Hernandez was plenty for Seattle manager Lloyd McClendon. Hernandez had other ideas and won the debate with his manager this time. "I think it looks better, seven innings," Hernandez said with a grin. Hernandez struck out 12 and Mike Zunino's first home run of the season gave Seattle...

The Much Too Early Seattle Mariners 2015 Report Card

Are McClendon’s Bunch Who We Thought? With roughly a week’s worth of baseball in the books for the 2015 Seattle Mariners, I think it’s far, far too early to be judging their performances.  After all, there is a reason why all the good stats end with the words average or percentage. You have batting average, earned run average, on-base percentage and so on.  Those numbers...

Seattle Mariners wrap up wild first week

It was a rocky start for a team projected to go far, but after a wild weekend with back-to-back extra inning wins the Seattle Mariners end their first week of the season at 3-3.  Felix Hernandez shined on Opening Day, and then it looked like the weight of expectations bogged down Seattle.  The Mariners dropped their next three games, getting shut out twice.  But they rebounded...

Oakland Athletics Get to King Felix But Lose in Extras
