The Most Volatile Hitter in Baseball History

Allow me to share with you an unremarkable batting line: .235/.308/.412. It doesn’t belong to Logan Morrison, but it might as well. This line belongs to another veteran, and it covers the last four years, and it’s worked out to a 98 wRC+. You can tell there’s seemingly nothing too special about the bat. To that, I’ll add that the player isn’t a particularly strong base...

McClendon: Mariners need Morrison to get going offensively

Over the weekend, the Seattle Mariners' offensive woes were on display yet again as they lost two of three to the New York Yankees.  One of the reasons the club has had such a difficulty fielding a consistent offense has to do with slugger Logan Morrison, an unabashed 'streaky hitter'.

The Mariners terrible, horrible, no good, very bad catchers

By Liam McGuire To say Seattle Mariners catchers have been “abysmal” is disrespectful to the word abysmal. Just how bad have Mariners backstops been? The club’s collective catchers are batting .150.
