Mariners Blank Sox; Split Series

The Red Sox lead the series 2-1 coming into Sunday’s day game.  The Sox had knuckleballer Steven Wright on the mound vs. James Paxton for the Mariners.  Wright was recently called up to replace Justin Masterson in the rotation.  Wright gave up a few runs, but had himself a positive spot start.  However since the Sox offense couldn’t scratch out a single run against the Mariners...

Red Sox Notes: Steven Wright Lives ‘Life Of A Knuckleballer’ In Loss

This embed is invalid" /> Sorry, Steven Wright. Not today. While Wright pitched well Sunday against the Seattle Mariners, James Paxton pitched even better. The Boston Red Sox’s bats were silenced in a 5-0 loss at Safeco Field. It was a disappointing end to a so-so road trip for the Red Sox, who went 5-5 during their 10-game swing through Toronto...

Red Sox Wrap: Boston’s Offense Again Silenced In 5-0 Loss To Mariners

Ten games. Five wins. Five losses. That’s the Red Sox’s road trip in its most basic form, and the excursion was every bit as sporadic as Boston’s .500 record indicates. The Sox ended the trip Sunday with a 5-0 loss to the Seattle Mariners at Safeco Field. The Red Sox showed some encouraging signs — pitching improvement chief among them — but they continuously faltered at...

Padres give up 6 homers in 11-4 loss to Mariners

SEATTLE (AP) -- This is not the home run category the San Diego Padres expected to find themselves leading early in the season. Thirty-four games played, and after Seattle's long ball display on Tuesday night, no team in baseball has allowed more homers than the Padres. "Most homers are pitches up over the plate or you're behind in the count and you challenge some hitters with some...

SSU Baseball Recap: San Diego Padres 4, Seattle Mariners 11

Two of the things that stand out the most, from what I learned about pitching from Jaime Moyer’s biography, was what to look for when judging a pitcher’s current mental state and what they may or may not be possible of doing going forward.  Today, a mild May evening in the Emerald City, James Paxton took a 4-0 lead into the top of the 2nd and proceeded to walk the bases loaded...

Scouting the Seattle Mariners

Ready for some hot #VedderCup action? Oh yeah, bring it. Since I watch a fair number of Mariners games, I thought I’d share some observations with you in advance of tonight’s first pitch. Do with these what you will. Offense Nelson Cruz. Everything revolves around Cruz. He will swing through a lot of pitches, but he has good plate coverage and can hit the ball a very long way...

Padres-Mariners Preview

After adding the league's top home run hitter to a largely unchanged 87-win team, the Seattle Mariners hoped for better than a sub-.500 record nearly two weeks into May. With continued improvement from their rotation, that shouldn't take long to turn around. James Paxton is next in line for the Mariners, who open a two-game series Tuesday night with the visiting San Diego Padres...

They’re both very disappointing. The experts are disappointed in them. Their fans are disappointed in them. Everyone is disappointed. LAST TIME ON ANGELS VS.

Daily DraftKings Picks: Monday, May 4

When last we spoke, I was recommending a risky Astros stack against James Paxton while rolling with Scott Feldman against Paxton’s Mariners. Sometimes stacking a team like Houston with a $5,700 starting pitcher works out great. Other times it doesn’t. On Thursday, it didn’t. Feldman and Alfredo Simon both flopped, and only one batter (Jose Altuve) topped 5.00 points. Bad days...

SSU Baseball Recap: Seattle Mariners 2, Houston Astros 3

Jose Altuve hit a walk-off single in the bottom of the 10th inning tonight to finish off the Mariner’s hopes. It was a tough pitcher’s duel all night between James Paxton and Astro’s starter Scott Feldman; both went 7 innings and left the game at a 2-2 tie. The tie would last until the 10th, when Altuve hit a single off the wall to end it. Paxton was on target tonight, lasting...

Daily DraftKings Picks: Thursday, Apr 30

Yesterday I recommended going with Gerrit Cole plus a Dodgers stack and, as has been customary around these parts through April, Nelson Cruz. Well, Cole was outstanding — he’s a borderline top-10 starting pitcher as Jake and I discuss on today’s Profcast — the Dodgers pounded Ryan Vogelsong for four homers, and Cruz did what he does best for the 10th time this season. This...

As of this initial posting, St. Louis’ starter is TBD, and we’ll get a chance to see whether the real Stephen Strasburg is still MIA against the Mets.

Seattle Mariners: Game 17 vs. Minnesota Twins

The Minnesota Twins were in town for game 2 of the 3 game series, and picked up a win against the Mariners by a score of 8-5. James Paxton was on the mound for the M’s, but it clearly wasn’t his night. He struggled with his control early, and often. The busiest man on the team was often Mike Zunino, trying to wrangle in the off-target pitches. Kyle Seager had an uncharacteristically...

Coming into the season, you might have had a three-part checklist for Mariners’ lefty James Paxton.
