Seattle Mariners preview: games 7-12

With our predictions for games 1-6 made, we move on to games 7-12. Through the first six we have the Seattle Mariners at 3-3, taking one from the Los Angeles Angels and two from the Oakland Athletics. For the next six games I expect a somewhat similar story. After leaving Oakland, the Mariners face off against the Los Angeles Dodgers for a three-game stint in famed Dodger Stadium...

Featured Post: Promises, Promises

On Wednesday, executive vice president Lou DePaoli told Newsday that Mets ticket sales are up 19.26 percent over last year. Considering the team hasn’t produced a winning season since 2008 and failed to add any high-priced box-office draw, Howard Megdal of Capital New York finds it astonishing that ticket sales would surge that significantly especially since they did nothing to...

Seattle Mariners Positioned as Early Favorites in AL West

In 2014 the Seattle Mariners notched 87 wins, their highest total since 2009. It marked a 16 game improvement on the previous season. Still, the Mariners were unable to end their playoff drought, which has continued since they won an MLB record 116 games in 2001. Going into 2015, the Mariners look like the favorites in the American League West. The Mariners aren’t short on star...

Seattle Mariners focus: Looking back at “The Big Unit”

Per the announcement today from the Baseball Writers’ Association of America, the 2015 Baseball Hall of Fame class will include Craig Biggio, John Smoltz, Pedro Martinez and Seattle Mariners legend Randy Johnson. Quite the class, isn’t it? Three of the greatest pitchers from the past 30 years and one of the best all-around second baseman from that same period. Not bad for a single...

Are the Mariners Now the Best Team in the AL?

Times are changing in Seattle. Their streak of losing seasons has come to an end and General Manager Jack Zduriencik has saved his job. After missing the playoffs by only one game in 2014, the Seattle Mariners proved that they are finally done rebuilding and were just a few solid additions away from not only contending for the AL wild card, but for the AL West Divisional Crown....

Seattle Mariners rumors: Cespedes, Cruz, Kemp

Hanley Ramirez is out of the equation, as is (now) former third-baseman Pablo Sandoval. Both are now heading to Boston to be members of the Red Sox. As for the Seattle Mariners, the key targets in this year’s free agency pool remain the same: Yoenis Cespedes, Nelson Cruz and Matt Kemp. All three would presumably bring the much-needed component of power to the Mariners lineup. And...

Hernandez "disappointed" finishing 2nd in Cy Young

SEATTLE (AP) If he needed any extra incentive going forward, Seattle Mariners ace Felix Hernandez found some on Wednesday when he finished second in the AL Cy Young voting. ''I don't know what to say. That was tough,'' Hernandez said after finishing 10 points behind Cleveland's Corey Kluber in the voting. ''A little disappointed. Just give me more motivation to work harder and harder...

Corey Kluber narrowly wins 2014 American League Cy Young Award

Cleveland Indians ace Corey Kluber had an absolutely tremendous year. It was one of the best pitching seasons in franchise history. And just by a nose, he defeated Seattle star Felix Hernandez to win the American League Cy Young award. The honor is the third given to an Indians pitcher in just eight seasons. C.C. Sabathia won the award in 2007, followed by Cliff Lee in 2008. Kluber’s...

The majority of the 29 other voters agreed with me — the Baseball Writers Association of America announced on Wednesday night that Kluber edged Hernandez to win the award for the first time.

Clayton Kershaw and the Others

I understand why the BBWAA announces finalists for awards before it announces the winners — they’re trying to build some suspense, some anticipation, and, okay, that’s fine, even if the finalists don’t tell us much we couldn’t predict. For example, we’ve long known the AL Cy Young was going to come down to Felix Hernandez […]

The BBWAA has told us the three finalists are Felix Hernandez, Corey Kluber, and Chris Sale. Based on the association’s own precedent, Sale isn’t going to win because he didn’t throw enough […]

Why Corey Kluber Should Win the Cy Young

Unlike the voting for the AL MVP, Cy Young voting has tended to be based on more legitimate stats over recent seasons than in the past. For example, the pitcher who won in 2010 won just 13 decisions and was on a team that did not make the play-offs. That year, Felix Hernandez, lead the league in ERA, WAR and innings. While early on, total wins were used as the ultimate qualifier...
