Seattle hopes Morrison more than Twitter persona

(Eds: Adds details, quotes.) By TIM BOOTH AP Sports Writer Logan Morrison may not ever be able to escape the shadow of the Twitter persona he's created. Consider it the cost of being engaging and sometimes polarizing on social media. What he is hoping for now, with him getting a new start in Seattle and with his knee fully healthy, is a return to his 2011 form when his performance...

New Players For Mariners Means New Hope… and New Risks.

With a new manager in Lloyd McClendon and a new headliner in Robinson Cano, the Mariners enter camp...

Kendry Morales back to the Mariners?

It is hard to imagine a scenario in which the Seattle Mariners do not make any noteworthy moves to follow up their blockbuster signing of Robinson Cano. Yes, they added Logan Morrison and Corey Hart, but those moves still do not register on the same level as some of the free agents who remain available. Ideally the Mariners would like to add one more bat to lengthen that lineup...

The Market Value of Post-Hype First Basemen

Logan Morrison came up with glove, power and patience and a big twitter presence. It was exciting. Then he was injured, the power waned, and he used that twitter account to upset his franchise. Now he’s a Mariner, traded for Carter Capps. And all of this means something for the Mets and Ike Davis. The bar is so high when it comes to first base that a little bit of struggle can...
