The Seattle Mariners bullpen: From first to worst

In 2014, the Seattle Mariners had the best bullpen in all of baseball, leading the majors in both ERA and xFIP. The impressive nine-man crew featured Fernando Rodney, Brandon Maurer, Danny Farquhar, Dominic Leone, Charlie Furbush, Yoervis Medina, Tom Wilhelmsen, Joe Beimel, and even Carson Smith pitched great in just 8.1 innings of work in September last season. In the offseason...

With Rodney gone, Mariners' bullpen takes on new look

The Seattle Mariners made a decision regarding recently DFA'd reliever Fernando Rodney on Thursday, trading him to the Chicago Cubs for cash considerations.

Closer Report, Week 21: The S.S. Wilhelmsen

The Mariner bullpen has basically been that round-up ride at your local carnival.  It doesn't look that bad until it totally messes with your vertigo and you end up spewing up kettle corn and other assorted goods for two hours there after.  Last year, the Mariners bullpen had a 2.60 ERA, good for tops in the MLB.  They also saved 51 games to only 11 blown saves.  They were all...

SAGNOF Special, Week 21: The Wilhelmsen Scream

SAGNOF just keeps finding ways to stay absurd.  Tom Wilhelmsen, Jean Machi, John Axford = good.  Carson Smith, Junichi Tazawa.... even Greg Holland = bad.  If all you care about are saves there's been a wealth of options available.  Realistically, I think chasing saves with bad closers can be a losing proposition.  What do the first three (the so called "good") have in common...

Mariners and Giants split series: When is Game 5?

It was a strange 4 game series for the Seattle Mariners and San Francisco Giants, playing almost like a playoff series with 2 games in the Bay and 2 games at home in Seattle. If it were a playoff series, we’d be looking at game 5 on Friday night as the ultimate result was a 2-2 draw. The Mariners starting rotation stepped it up this series, providing 4 very solid starts.

The Mariners continued their momentum to righting the Good Ship Mariner tonight, with a 7-2 win over the visiting Oakland Athletics.
