Seattle Mariners Review After Month One

View image | gettyimages.com As the first month of baseball comes to an end, the Seattle Mariners are not exactly in the spot they expected to be. Seattle came into April with high hopes, including many experts seeing them as AL contenders, and while they have had their share of bright spots, there are areas where Seattle needs to fix soon if they want to be a contender come October...

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...

SSU Baseball Recap: Seattle Mariners 5, Texas Rangers 2

The King still reigns supreme, as Felix pitched his way to 4-0 on the season against the Texas Rangers completing a three game sweep. With a 5-2 win over the Rangers, the Mariners moved to 10-11 on the season, 1 game below .500. Felix as usual pitched a brilliant game, allowing only 2 runs over 6.2 innings pitched. He got some assistance from the offense as well, with Nelson Cruz...

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...

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 –...

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...

Dodgers 6, Mariners 5: Thank you, Howie Kendrick

The last time Fernando Rodney pitched in Dodger Stadium, it was one of the more amazing Dodger comebacks I have ever witnessed. David Price was staked to a 6-0 lead and gave up one run in seven innings. Tonight’s Dodger comeback — they won 6-5, by the way — wasn’t nearly as dramatic, but Rodney was, again, at the center of it. The Mariners led 5-4 going into the ninth inning...

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...

Rodney walks in run in 10th to give A's 3-2 win

Mariners reliever Fernando Rodney (1-6) came on in the 10th and walked Coco Crisp to open the inning. After Crisp advanced to second on a sacrifice, Rodney intentionally walked...

Tampa Bay Rays at St. Louis Cardinals series primer

Well, the temperature in the Bay Area says otherwise, and Sundays remain silent without the NFL's thunder, but this is September as far as the Tampa Bay Rays are concerned. Scoreboard watching has become en vogue. There's urgency. There's also possibility. Take Sunday for example.

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,...

Mike Trout, Albert Pujols Troll Fernando Rodney During Angels Rally (Video)

The Los Angeles Angels have had enough of Seattle Mariners closer Fernando Rodney. After each save, Rodney celebrates by shooting an imaginary bow and arrow toward the sky. Against the Angels on Sunday, Rodney celebrated a little early, doing his normal antics after recording the final out of the eighth inning. In ninth inning, however, the Angels got their revenge.

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.
