Seattle Mariners: Is Lloyd McClendon to blame?

At this point, it’s fairly obvious that the Seattle Mariners have severely underachieved in the 2015 season. There are several possible reasons for this, but this article will examine some of manager Lloyd McClendon’s in-game decisions in a few games in the 2nd half of the season. I will analyze three scenarios in three separate games. Let it be known that this is not a criticism...

Seth Smith had a pretty great first inning on Tuesday - watch

Seth Smith isn't really known for his defensive skills - he's much more of a 'professional hitter' than a Gold Glove-quality outfielder. 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...

Get Well Soon, Seth Smith

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...

Mariner’s Opening Day Notes: Seth Smith Is A God

Seth Smith is a God among men. At least for the duration of April 6th, 2015 he is. Smith became the first player in Seattle Mariners history to collect three extra base hits on Opening Day (thanks to Ace of MLB Stats). Smith had two doubles and a triple, while driving in two. After Mike Trout took Felix Hernandez yard in the top of the first inning, Smith tied the score with his...

Smith finds spot in outfield with Mariners

PEORIA, Ariz. (AP) By now, Seth Smith is used to joining a new team in spring training. Smith was acquired by Seattle in a trade with San Diego in December, his fourth team in five years. ''At this point, it's not that big of a deal,'' Smith said of being on so many new teams. ''The first time is a little bit weird. But after that you understand that it's a part of it. You never...

The Seattle Mariners Right Field Platoon – Both Productive And Economical

Just before the New Year, the Seattle Mariners acquired outfielder Seth Smith from the San Diego Padres for relief pitcher Brandon Mauer. The left handed hitting Smith will, more than likely, share a right field platoon with the right handed hitting Justin Ruggiano, who was also recently acquired from the Chicago Cubs. While fans often don’t think of platoon signings as being as...

The Final Piece Departs

Last summer when the Padres extended outfielder Seth Smith without a full-time general manager in place, I wrote: The problem, like Dave Cameron said yesterday, is the opportunity cost. There are only so many roster spots and, more specifically, so many outfielders that can play in one game. Like Hundley, Smith might end up getting in the way of a youngster like Rymer Liriano or...

A Brief Note about Seth Smith

The Padres didn’t need Seth Smith, and traded him to the Mariners. The Mariners are getting themselves a nice little hitter, especially against right-handed pitching. Jeff will likely have more on Brandon Maurer, who was the Padres’ return for Smith, in the next couple of days, but until then I wanted to type up a […]
