SAGNOF Special, Week 8: Heeere’s Carson!

Last week I recommended Shawn Tolleson, a player that seemed on the cusp of closerdom.  The closer's role is now his and even though they have a player in Keone Kela that is being groomed for the role (thanks for the tip, Smokey!), it is my belief that Tolleson will stay the closer until he loses the job by blowing saves, but that could be said of just about any closer.  This week...

Seattle Mariners 3, Toronto Blue Jays 2: Cool Canadian Paxton controls the fierce Blue Jays offense

The Cool Canadian returned home to start an early game today, earning his 3rd win in as many starts. James Paxton had a rough start to the inning, earning a visit from McClendon early in the 1st inning. But the breather did the trick and the young hurler settled in for 6 innings of quality work. The M’s bullpen did their part, carrying the 7th-9th innings with dominance. Tom Wilhelmsen...

SSU Baseball Recap: Boston Red Sox 2, Seattle Mariners 1

Mariners' Joe Beimel mimics Fernando Rodney's invisible arrow shoot after win

Seattle Mariners closer Fernando Rodney is known for his sometimes high-stress outings, his crooked cap and his penchant for shooting invisible arrows from an invisible quiver after locking down a save. On Saturday night, the M's didn't need Rodney to preserve a 7-2 lead over the Oakland A's, so lefty Joe Beimel navigated the ninth. After wrapping up the win, Beimel tipped his proverbial...

SSU Baseball Recap: Seattle Mariners 3, Los Angeles Angels 2

Hopefully, Angels Stadium has plenty of surge protectors on hand, to handle the power surge that happened tonight! All 5 runs were caused by solo shot home runs tonight, with the Mariners happening to hit 1 more than the Angels. Nelson Cruz continued his torrid pace of homers, hitting his 14th on the season in the 7th inning. He continues to impress with his hitting skills, and putting...

Seattle Mariners: The Fernando Rodney experiment continues

Despite a great 2014 campaign, Seattle Mariners closer Fernando Rodney has experienced some struggles to start off the 2015 season. Through five appearances, Rodney has posted an ERA of 12.46 and a WHIP of 2.54. These numbers are appalling for somebody who is usually near the top of the league in saves. His first blown save was against Oakland on April 12th. Felix Hernandez had pitched...

Mariners sticking with Fernando Rodney as closer

Despite some struggles to start the season, Seattle Mariners manager Lloyd McClendon stood behind closer Fernando Rodney. Rodney blew a save on Tuesday and allowed four runs in a non-save situation back on Sunday. “Here’s the deal,” said McClendon via the Tacoma News Tribune. “People fly off the handle and say, `Rodney stinks. We need to change. Get another closer.’ OK...

The Fernando Rodney Experience — Is It Time To Move On?

Mariners Closer Off To Slow Start In modern baseball, having a solid closer is a necessity.  Virtually all championship teams in recent memories have that one guy in their bullpen that always works the last three outs of a game when they have a lead of three runs or less.  For the Seattle Mariners, that man has been Fernando Rodney as of late. Norm Charlton stepped in as the...

How (Un)Lucky Have The Seattle Mariners Been?

In the throes of the NFL season and endless scandals, many Seattle Mariners fans can be forgiven if they didn’t actually see Fernando Rodney walk four hitters in the 10th to lose the game to the Oakland A’s over the weekend. Although it is pretty difficult to walk four batters in one inning, Rodney hasn’t blown an inordinate number of saves over the course of the season. It’s...

No arrows for Fernando Rodney

You have to hand it to the Oakland Athletics. They are a smart team that uses their information very wisely. The A's had tied a huge game with the Seattle Mariners up with a home run by Josh Donaldson off of perhaps the best pitcher in the American League. The homer ensured that King Felix could not seal the deal on perhaps the biggest start of his career in Seattle. In the tenth...

Imaginary Arrows Don’t Win Or Lose Baseball Games

In the wake of an incredible weekend of baseball in Los Angeles, or Anaheim, or somewhere in California, in which the Seattle Mariners lost to the Angels in the bottom of the 16th one night, turned around and beat the Angels in the 12th the next night, and then lost a heartbreaker in the 9th the final day of the series, it’s mildly amusing the scrutiny still being applied a few...

Boxscore Breakdown #97: Green arrow – Angels 6, Mariners 5

I’m not normally one for trash-talking and chest-puffing in sports. It’s a game and you shouldn’t take it too seriously. But after Pujols and Trout loosed those pantomime arrows at Fernando Rodney, I couldn’t have been happier. The best thing about arrows? They can be fired right back at your opponent. http://t.co/q1o4OIpxa7 — Angels (@Angels) July 20, 2014 Seriously,...

Fernando Rodney and the Angels traded arrows on Sunday

Fernando Rodney shot his trademark arrow at the Angels dugout at the end of the eighth inning after being brought in for a five out save on Sunday. Following an Albert Pujols game-tying double in the ninth, Pujols returned the favor by shooting an arrow of his own. Then Mike Trout got into the act, grabbing his quiver and firing off an arrow. Gamesmanship – you’ve gotta love it.
