Room For Improvement – The Seattle Mariners After 15 Games

Fifteen games down, 147 to go. I wrote something similar last season when the Seattle Mariners got off to a slow start in April. Had the Mariners gone 6-9 in any stretch during, say, mid June, no one would even notice. But the freshness of the season and the high expectations surrounding this ball club this year magnifies the early issues scoring runs and the surprisingly poor pitching...

What In The World Is Wrong With The Seattle Mariners?

Don’t Hit The Panic Button Just Yet The Seattle Mariners are taking a much needed home off day today to re-think their efforts in the first two weeks or so of the season.  After 15 games the Mariners are in last place in the AL West with a not so pretty record of 6-9.   That record leaves many wondering if the Mariners really are the contenders everyone predicted they would...

Going...Going...Gone! Seattle Mariners Slugger Nelson Cruz Hits Major League Leading 8th Home Run

When the Seattle Mariners acquired Nelson Cruz they were hoping he would bring some pop to Safeco Field. While he has yet to actually bring much to Safeco Field he has brought plenty to the Mariners. Just 12 games in to the 2015 season he had eight home runs (most in the league).No. 7 came in the first inning Sunday against his old team, the Texas Rangers, with No. 8 coming later...

Seattle Mariners: Trip to L.A. unkind

Well, to put it bluntly, Los Angeles was very unkind to the Seattle Mariners.  Coming off back-to-back extra innings victories, the Mariners dropped three straight to the Dodgers to fall to 3-6 on the season.  For those of you who like me always have an eye on the standings, this puts Seattle into dead last in the A.L. West.  But, considering we’re not even one-tenth done with...

Seattle Mariners: The good, the bad, and the ugly

The first three series of the year are in the books, and the Seattle Mariners stand at 3-6, which is somewhat disappointing, although one must take into consideration a tough schedule to begin the year.

The Much Too Early Seattle Mariners 2015 Report Card

Are McClendon’s Bunch Who We Thought? With roughly a week’s worth of baseball in the books for the 2015 Seattle Mariners, I think it’s far, far too early to be judging their performances.  After all, there is a reason why all the good stats end with the words average or percentage. You have batting average, earned run average, on-base percentage and so on.  Those numbers...
