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...

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. On Sunday, manager Lloyd McClendon was rewarded for putting Marte in the leadoff spot, as he went 3-4, got on base four times and scored the go-ahead run in the 11th inning.  Afterward, McClendon...

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.

Seattle Mariners: The State of the M’s from Seattle Side Up

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...

Seattle Mariners look for better second half

The first half of the season is over from the Seattle Mariners, and they find themselves with a disappointing 41-48, one game ahead of Oakland for the worst record in the American League.  However, on a positive note, no one is dominating the A.L.

MLB Quick Hits: Cano's bat finally wakes up

Mariners 2B Robinson Cano was a second-round draft pick in most mixed leagues this season, and has pretty much been a disaster, with four home runs and a sub-.250 BA through the end of June. We're big fans of patience around here, but Cano's struggles merited his benching in many formats. You couldn't really waive him, but he wasn't helping you. He's been a terrible problem to own...
