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.

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...

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...

Something To Remember:  Seattle Mariners 2014 Season Rewind

Expectations Now Higher Than Ever From the streak of games Felix Hernandez put together pitching seven innings while allowing two or fewer runs, or playing meaningful games until the last day of the regular season, the 2014 Seattle Mariners certainly are something to remember.
