Robinson Cano Makes History With 30th Double

It hasn’t necessarily been the most record breaking season for Robinson Cano and the Seattle Mariners in 2015, a fairly disappointing season in fact, but Tuesday night in the Mariners’ 6-5 win over the Oakland A’s, Cano broke a record that shows consistency more than anything. After coming up through the New York Yankees organization to begin his career, the Mariners’ second...

Could the Mets actually keep Yoenis Cespedes?

Much has been made of the fact that Yoenis Cespedes is a pure rental for the New York Mets. Due to some fancy legalese in the Cuban outfielder’s contract, the Mets will have to release him five days after the end of the World Series if an extension cannot be worked out. Should the Mets release Cespedes, he cannot be resigned until May 15 of the following season. Something tells...

Seattle Mariners Recap: Bullpen Struggles Continue versus the Chi-Sox, Mariners Lose 2 of 3

The feeling all Mariners have felt all season long.   This weekend saw another disappointing outcome for the Mariners, as they dropped 2 out of 3 at home to the White Sox.   Pitching was again the issue, as Felix was roughed up a bit and the bullpen continued its dismal season.  On the bright side, Fernando Rodney was let go.  Let’s take a look at the games. Game 1 Friday’s...

Seattle Mariners: Looking back on bold predictions

A little over a week before Opening Day, I made a few bold predictions on the 2015 Seattle Mariners season. It’s currently late August, and more than enough time has elapsed for me to look back on how I did with those three claims. Unfortunately, it’s tough to tell which of the three have turned out to be the most wrong. “1. Dustin Ackley ends up with a higher batting average...

Seattle Mariners: Clock near midnight for 2015

Disappointing.  Unfortunately, that is the main word to sum up 2015 to date for the fans of the Seattle Mariners.  After coming within a game of the playoffs last season, Seattle finds themselves at 56-65, nine games under .500 and 7.5 games out of the final Wild Card spot (although that number is a bit misleading with six teams between the Mariners and Angels).  There had been...

Where Did The Seattle Mariners Go Wrong?

2015 has not been kind to the Seattle Mariners. They were pegged as World Series favorites entering the season, expectations that really weren’t all that lofty – the team had a scarily dominant rotation, led by future Hall of Famer Felix Hernandez, who was followed by young phenoms Taijuan Walker and James Paxton. They signed reigning home run champ Nelson Cruz to a 4-year deal...

McClendon: Mariners haven't 'given up' on 2015 just yet

The Seattle Mariners have been a tough team to grasp in 2015. Coming into the season with lofty expectations and, according to some, World Series aspirations, they entered play Tuesday just 49-58, 11 games back of the first-place Houston Astros in the AL West and six games out of a Wild Card spot. Their offense has been largely inconsistent, their rotation has been plagued with injuries...

Mariners Have Pair Of Important Series Coming Up, Try To Keep Faint Playoff Hopes Alive

When the Seattle Mariners signed second baseman, Robinson Cano to a mega 10-year, $240 million contract going into the 2014 season, big things were expected of the M’s.

Phenom Marte off to fast start with Mariners

The Seattle Mariners called up 21-year-old infield prospect Ketel Marte in time for this past weekend's series in Minnesota, and he did pretty well in his first few games with the club.

Seattle Mariners: The trade deadline looms, perhaps the Mariners should not trade

The trade deadline nears and it is painfully clear the Mariners lacks competitive fight and was put together in the worst way possible. The lack of competitive fire lay squarely on the shoulders of one Lloyd McClendon; however, the team that was put together so shabbily, rests on Jack Zduriencik. Now this article is not intended to bash Mariners management (for that please click...

The Mariners began the 2nd half of their 2015 season this past weekend, and it gave us a chance here at SSU to reflect on the season so far.  We put together some questions for the Baseball staff here, and where we think our chances lie. The Mariners stand at 41-48 this year at the break, far behind last year’s 51-44 at this time. What do you think was the primary reason for...
