The Much Too Early Seattle Mariners 2015 Report Card

Are McClendon’s Bunch Who We Thought? With roughly a week’s worth of baseball in the books for the 2015 Seattle Mariners, I think it’s far, far too early to be judging their performances.  After all, there is a reason why all the good stats end with the words average or percentage. You have batting average, earned run average, on-base percentage and so on.  Those numbers...

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...

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 […]

Friars Should Take Run At Cuban FA OF Tomas

I think I speak for all Padres fans when I say I want the club to pursue an acquisition for a legitimate big bat this winter.

Not a steady platoon bat that the Friars hope to unrealistically squeeze more production from by inserting into the lineup...
