Karma – She’s No Lady, She’s a…Well, You Know

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...

A’s walk back from brink to top Mariners in 10th

On Saturday night at a packed, loud Safeco Field, the A’s faced their most frequent tormentor and the likelihood of slipping out of a playoff spot altogether. With a sense of unexpected drama that harked back to the 2012 A’s, though, Oakland hung tough with All-Star Felix Hernandez, then beat Seattle closer Fernando Rodney in the 10th inning. Rodney put three men aboard, one...

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...

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...

However, if you have a signature move that you like to do--like Tigers closer Fernando Rodney--every time you save a game you better actually save it for when you do.Otherwise, you might end up giving your opponents fuel to...

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.

Mets Rumors: Troy Tulowitzki, Fernando Rodney, Grant Balfour

A rather strong question to ask is, would the Colorado Rockies ever consider moving Troy Tulowitzki? And if so, what is the asking price? The New York Mets are averaging less than .200 with the three players they have had at the shortstop position this season. Also with Bobby Parnell out for the season due to elbow surgery, the Mets may need to find a suitable replacement outside...

Dear Fernando Rodney – Just Pull Yourself Together

When I went to the Seattle Mariners’ home opener in April, Fernando Rodney walked out onto the mound and a man standing next to me grabbed the bill of my baseball cap and turned it to the side.  First, I was like, “Don’t touch me.”  Second, I was all, “Oh, we have a reliever that has a shtick.  And he seems good!”  Well, that wore off quickly. Though Rodney is tied...
