Seattle Mariners 4 Baltimore Orioles 5: O’s Steve Pierces the Mariners Heart with a Grand Slam

A six hour rain delay ground into both the Seattle and Baltimore pitching staffs as evidenced by shaky pitching by M’s starter JA Happ, and Orioles’ Chris Tillman, and Brian Matusz. Normally reliable JA Happ, was shelled for four runs in the first inning, giving up a grand slam to Steve Pierce.   Clearly showing that he didn’t have the stuff needed today, Happ was removed...

Now Is the Time for the Mariners to Make Some Roster Moves

After falling one game short of the second wild card spot in 2014, the Seattle Mariners came into 2015 with high expectations. They were already a good-looking team after last season, and after the signing of Nelson Cruz, they were appearing to be a good pick to make the postseason for the first time since 2001. As things usually do for the Mariners, not everything has gone according...

Seattle Mariners have yet to see the Robinson Cano they paid for

Troy Taormina-USA TODAY Sports For the New York Yankees, 2015 was supposed to be all about Robinson Cano, or, more specifically, his emergence as the next face of the franchise and heir-apparent to retired pin-striper Derek Jeter. Instead, now nearly 18 months removed from shattering the hearts of Yankee fans everywhere by signing a 10-year, $240 million contract with the Seattle...

Seattle Mariners Review After Month One

View image | gettyimages.com As the first month of baseball comes to an end, the Seattle Mariners are not exactly in the spot they expected to be. Seattle came into April with high hopes, including many experts seeing them as AL contenders, and while they have had their share of bright spots, there are areas where Seattle needs to fix soon if they want to be a contender come October...

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...

Dustin Ackley and Rickie Weeks: The Unlikely Platoon Partners

So Far, So Good For Weeks and Ackley When Seattle Mariner’s GM Jack Zduriencik announced the signing of Rickie Weeks I was a little mystified.  When Big Jack later announced that Weeks would be playing in the outfield, specifically left field in a quasi-platoon role with Dustin Ackley, I really began to scratch my head. It just didn’t make sense to me. Rickie Weeks was adamant...

Seth Smith sat out the Seattle Mariners’ 5-3 loss to the Los Angeles Angels on Wednesday due to tightness in his groin. He’s currently listed as day to day. His absence from the lineup forced manager Lloyd McClendon to make some moves Mariners fans should hope he doesn’t have to make often, namely playing Nelson Cruz in right field and having Rickie Weeks in the lineup against...

Key subtractions: Yovani Gallardo, Rickie Weeks, Zach Duke, and Tom Gorzelanny I was down on the Brewers before last year, and it’s impossible to deny that they proved me wrong. They collapsed and blew their chances at a playoff spot though. I don’t see how they improved last year’s team, and how they...

Rickie Weeks hit leadoff so he could make dentist appointment

For veteran players with a roster spot secured, spring training is less about proving themselves and more about getting the necessary reps needed to make sure they are sharp and ready for opening day. That’s the case for Rickie Weeks. Weeks signed a one-year contract with the Mariners last month, but has been slowed this...Read More

The Battle For Shortstop Heats Up Again At Mariners Spring Training

Taylor and Miller Both Giving It Their All Since it’s pretty clear that Seattle Mariner’s skipper Lloyd McClendon is set on a quasi-platoon role between Dustin Ackley and Rickie Weeks in left, along with a true platoon role in right with Seth Smith and Justin Ruggiano, one has to think that the real battle for a position spot on the Mariners 25 man roster is at shortstop.

In New Digs, Rickie Weeks Looks To Make Most Of Chance With Seattle Mariners

Not many baseball players in this day and age stick around with one team for very long. Ever since free-agency leaped into the forefront, baseball has been largely built around high turnover with very few players donning one cap for the duration of their careers, let alone three or four years. The Philadelphia Phillies have multiple players who have spent their careers in red and...

Seattle Mariners Spring Training Preview – Outfielders And Pitchers

Left Field: Projected Starter: Dustin Ackley/Rickie Weeks Projected Backup: Justin Ruggiano Dark Horse: Alex Jackson The plan in left field is a platoon of two former top prospects.  Ackley struggled defensively at second base, and his average dropped off a cliff at the start of the year, ending at .245.  It is encouraging that he set career highs in home runs (14), RBIs (65) and...

Weeks hits long homer for Mariners in loss to Diamondbacks

PEORIA, Ariz. (AP) Rickie Weeks hit a mammoth home run for a Seattle Mariners split squad Saturday in a 4-3 loss to the Arizona Diamondbacks. Weeks sent a drive that cleared the 40-foot wall above the 410-foot mark in center field. He connected in the fifth inning off Andrew Chafin.

New look for Mariners' Rickie Weeks, hopes for fresh start

PEORIA, Ariz. (AP) The most noticeable thing is the hair. Gone are the long dreadlocks that were once a Rickie Weeks staple. He'd worn them since 2008, but said he grew tired of the hair style. ''It's just one of those things,'' Weeks said. Weeks also made more major changes. After 12 seasons in the Milwaukee organization, he signed a one-year contract with the Seattle Mariners...

Rickie Weeks – Another Platoon Piece For The Seattle Mariners

Last week, the Seattle Mariners added another right handed bat in former Milwaukee Brewers second baseman Rickie Weeks. The Mariners and Weeks agreed to a club friendly $2 million / one year deal, with built in incentives in the unlikely event he’s used as more than a platoon against left handed pitching at the corner outfield positions or as an occasional reliever for Robinson...

He's ready to embrace the idea of being a utility player, even if that means learning positions he hasn't played since becoming a professional. ''I'm not going to say it's easy.
