The good, the bad, the ugly
The Seattle Mariners seem to have woken up from their first month slumber. They currently sit in 2nd place in the AL West and are 1 game below .500 on the season after winning 5 of their last 6 series and splitting the 7th series with Pittsburgh.
This is about the point we’re used to seeing the Mariners fall behind, only to never catch back up with the...
The Seattle Mariners are in the midst of a hot streak right now, dominated by solid pitching performances and perfectly timed run support. While we all wait and see if the team can crack .500, we have our own teams to worry about…our fantasy team.
If you have been gun shy in the past about Mariners on a fantasy team, I hear you loud and clear.
This time around...
It’s All Coming Together, FINALLY
To the naked eye, the Seattle Mariners are the epitome of mediocrity. They are sitting at an 18-20 record, which is only good enough for third in the AL West. The question is, though, do they deserve praise and high hopes?
After a slow start – and a few ass kickings by the little league squad that is the Astros – they have finally...
Joe Saunders won his ninth straight decision at Safeco Field and Kendrys Morales hit a three-run homer, leading the Seattle Mariners over the Oakland Athletics 6-1 Sunday.
Saunders (3-4) allowed one run and five hits in 6 1-3 innings with six strikeouts and three walks. He is 3-0 with a 0.94 ERA in four home starts this year, improving to 9-0 with a 1.72 ERA in 13 career appearances...
It has to be a little bit frustrating for batters to see a hot they know they absolutely crushed nabbed out of the air at the absolute last possible moment. Like with this play, if Saunders had not gotten back and jumped up to make the grab then this would have been two bags easy if not three (it looks like it was going to hit right under the line.
Better luck next time J.P.
Dustin Ackley hit his first career grand slam, Michael Saunders homered twice and the Seattle Mariners roughed up Cy Young knuckleballer R.A. Dickey, beating the struggling Toronto Blue Jays 8-1 on Saturday afternoon.

Last season, the Baltimore Orioles owned the Seattle Mariners taking eight out of nine meetings.

Mariners lose game three 3-1 to Rangers at Safeco
Joe Saunders gave up one unearned run on three hits over seven innings and there's no way he can be blamed for this tough loss. I'm not sure if Carter Capps can be either.

Saunders sustained his injury during Wednesday night’s contest against the Houston Astros when he collided with the outfield wall. He
was able to make an impressive catch on a ball off the bat of Astros second
The Seattle Mariners created some minor buzz this off season by slightly bringing in some of the fences at Safeco Field to help the offense. So far in this home stand that theory has worked, but it worked for the other team. After the Mariners took their home opener 3-0 on Monday, they lost back-to-back games to the hapless Houston Astros giving up 24 runs in the process. This...
