Edgar Martinez, Mariners Legend and Hitting Coach

Edgar Can Help The announcement this week of Edgar Martinez being named by the Seattle Mariners as their new hitting coach is certainly welcome news.  For me specifically, it’s welcome news on so many different levels.  In fact, the decision that brings Edgar into the M’s dugout again is so exciting to me personally I freely admit I will have a very difficult time being objective...

The 2015 Mariners Are Feeling A Lot Like 1995 Mariners

M’s Bullpen Concerns Growing Who remembers 1995?  I know I do.  The Seattle Mariners were playing again after labor issues cancelled the remainder of the 1994 season and also delayed the start of the ’95 season in the process. So young, talented and steroid free back then. The Mariners were a team that many felt could be contenders that year.  They added a free agent at...

Sox 99 – Toward Postseason

The Red Sox made a big leap toward the postseason by taking three from the Yankees in the Stadium behind solid pitching and strong hitting. It was Boston’s first sweep in the Big Apple in 15 years, and started with perhaps Pedro Martinez’ best of many great performances. On September 10 he tossed a one-hitter in a 3-1 win, walking none and fanning a career-high 17. Pedey fanned...

My favorite Paul O'Neill moment is one that never made the highlight reels

Back in the day, I was a big Paul O'Neill fan. And my late father was, too; that was his favorite player of the 90s dynasty years. (My mother thought O'Neill was a big baby for his temper tantrums, though!)Anyhow, I was very happy to see the O'Neill has finally gotten the honor he deserves, getting a plaque in Monument Park. If I hadn't already made previous plans to participate...

Remember when a Redsock-Yankees series actually involved two power teams?

Yesterday, Mustang and I were chewing the ol' lard, jawboning about those 16-year-old, barefoot Latino boys who Hal Steinbrenner next week will turn into future Wall Street one-percenters. (Hopefully, the Yankees measured the ears, so we can know how big they'll get.) Those kids never saw Tino Martinez play first base for the Yankees. They were six years old when the Curse crashed...
