The Mariners offense needs to turn things around soon

It seems every offseason the Mariners take risks on stopgap players in hoping it can fix their stagnant offense – and it never seems to work. Over the last two seasons, the club has brought in the likes of Seth Smith, Justin Ruggiano, Corey Hart, Rickie Weekes, Logan Morrison and now Mark Trumbo.

And yet, you'd barely know it by the dazzling play he made on Tuesday night in the Seattle Mariners' loss to the Baltimore Orioles at Camden Yards.  As the M's leadoff hitter, he stepped up against Miguel Gonzalez and cracked a home run to give...

After Mike Trout took Felix Hernandez yard in the top of the first inning, Smith tied the score with his...
