A Historic Year For The Seattle Mariners Bullpen

The Mariners pitching staff has been phenomenal this season, with a Major League leading 2.95 ERA that is greatly suppressed by Felix Hernandez’s 180.1 innings and 1.95 ERA. To put this staff’s performance in perspective, the AL average ERA is 3.86, or almost a full run per game higher than the Mariners. This has allowed the Mariners, who rank 14th out of 15 teams in the AL in...

M’s Skipper Lloyd McClendon mid-season report card

How Has The Skip Performed? Sometimes I think the media forgets that it’s not 100% about the players.  Coaches and managers definitely play a role in how their teams perform. There is no exception for the Seattle Mariners newly anointed Skipper, Lloyd McClendon either. I think it’s time we pay some attention to the skipper, the moves he’s made and the other decisions that...

Seattle Mariners 2014, 3 Week Pitching Report

The Hits Just Keep On Coming The news on the pitching front continues to worsen for the Seattle Mariners who seem lost at sea in the midst of an eight game losing streak.  Injuries, youth, defensive miscues, and flat out incompetence have all contributed to the mess the M’s hurlers find themselves currently in.

The Seattle Mariners Run Aground For 8th Straight Loss

Is it time to jump ship yet? After losing 6 games in a row to the Texas Rangers and Miami Marlins one would think that coming home, having ace hurler Felix Hernandez on the hill, and having the luxury of the abysmal hitting Houston Astros to punch around that the Seattle Mariners would snap out of their losing streak. Think Again. Despite a team batting average of .191 the Astros...

Three-game sweep swings Marlins' early season back in right direction

MIAMI -- Baseball is cyclical over the course of a 162-game season. One week, everything goes right. During the following stretch, everything goes wrong.

Mariners Replace Good Closer with Good Closer

The Mariners lost Tom Wilhelmsen last year, not to injury, but to whatever it is that capriciously claims the effectiveness of relievers with otherwise quality stuff. In stepped Danny Farquhar, one of two guys the Mariners got for Ichiro in a deal interpreted as nothing other than a dump and a favor. At the time, […]

Seattle Mariners rumors: Closer edition

The position of closer looked to be one of strength for the Seattle Mariners going into 2013.  Tom Wilhelmsen stepped into the closer’s role after Brandon League was traded to the Dodgers, and he had a fine 2012 saving 29 games with a 2.50 ERA and a 1.11 WHIP.  He came hot out of the gate in 2013 saving 8 games in April with a 0.75 ERA, but a disastrous June (0-2, 4 saves, 3...

Seattle Mariners' Closer Danny Farquhar’s Curveball And MLB Closers

The Seattle Mariners have a new closer: Danny Farquhar.  The former M’s closer, Tom Wilhelmsen, has been cast aside after repeated implosions and losing the ability to consistently strike out MLB hitters.  Strikeouts are incredibly important for closers, because they limit the chances for batters to get hits.  Now, Wilhelmsen is in Tacoma playing triple-A baseball and the Mariners...

Despite first blown save, the M’s Farquhar is the “Real Deal”

The Kid can K The Seattle Mariners have had difficulty finding a consistent performer in the closer role, something they did not expect coming into this year.  Last season, Tom Wilhelmsen found success converting 29 of 34 save opportunities over 79.1 innings with a 2.50 ERA.  Of all the positions the Mariners thought they may be weak, the closer was not one of them.
