Flashback: Ken Griffey Jr. and Sr. share the field for Mariners

Back on August 31, 1990, two generations of Griffeys suited up for the Seattle Mariners and made history. At the time, Ken Griffey Jr. and Ken Griffey Sr. were the very first father/son duo in MLB history to play together in the same game. As Michael Clair of MLB.com noted in his CutFour piece celebrating the Griffeys, that's a remarkable achievement that has only happened one other...

On the Nature of Writing and Fandom

On Friday, in the midst of a fifth losing season in the last seven years, the Mariners fired general manager Jack Zduriencik. In the few hours that followed that announcement, I got a series of texts and emails from friends and acquaintances, all with the same general theme: “Congratulations, your team now has a chance to be decent again!” And changing leadership probably will...

Mariners Dismiss Jack Zduriencik 2.0

Since the start of the 2009 season, no team has won fewer games than the Astros, and during that window they’ve picked up a new general manager. The Marlins have won the second-fewest games, and they technically changed general managers. So did the Cubs, with the third-fewest wins. So did the Rockies, with the fourth-fewest wins. And now so have the Mariners, with the fifth-fewest...

MLB Quick Hits: Mariners to skip Felix's Monday start

Felix Hernandez's fantasy owners will be without their ace tonight, as the Mariners are planning to skip his Monday start to keep him fresh for September. Manager Lloyd McClendon said he'll do the same with Taijuan Walker at some point in September. This could happen with other starters - probably Noah Syndergaard and Matt Harvey, Washington's Joe Ross after 2-3 more starts - so...

Seattle Mariners: Series Recap @ Chicago White Sox, Kyle Seager is a Boss

The Mariners got some revenge on the Chicago White Sox, as the bats came to life and the Mariners took 2 out of 3 over the weekend. Kyle Seager was amazing the entire series, as he homered in all 3 games and went an insane 8 for 15. Cano also hit well in the series, going 6 for 12. Except for the continued bullpen struggles, it was all in all a well-played series from the M’s...

The Wind Up: Starting Over in Seattle

As August winds down, a legend has announced he'll be returning next season. But there's a catch. The Seattle Mariners have had one of the weirdest seasons I've ever witnessed, considering last season, their projected potential this season, and so on. The latest casualty: their general manager. Unrelated: You cannot stop the Toronto Blue Jays offense. At this point, you can't...

Where does Seattle go from here?

It was October 2008, the Seattle Mariners had just finished off the first 100-plus loss season of a ball club with a $100 million dollar payroll in Major League Baseball history. Bill Bavasi had just been fired as General Manager and the Mariners hired a man by the name of Jack Zduriencik from the Milwaukee Brewers organization to be their new GM.

Will Robinson Cano Be A Mariner In 2016?

The Seattle Mariners, picked by many to not only make the playoffs, but to win the World Series, came into the 2015 season with expectations arguably as high as ever in the history of the franchise. Following an impressive playoff push that found them just 1 game short of October in 2014, Seattle seemed primed for even greater success this year. Adding slugger Nelson Cruz to an...

Seattle Mariners: Starting catcher Mike Zunino optioned to Triple-A Tacoma

In Jackie Z’s last move, and probably one of the few all Mariner fans can agree on, 24-year-old catcher Mike Zunino was sent down to the Tacoma Rainers. The optioning of Zunino is most likely short-lived as the Rainers only have 11 games left in their season (plus playoffs). One can’t say Zunino hasn’t been given a chance — he leads the American League with 112 games at catcher...

Mariners Demote Mike Zunino To Triple-A

Friday has been a busy day for the Seattle Mariners as earlier they relieved Jack Zduriencik of his duties as GM. The second move made was demoting starting catcher Mike Zunino to Triple-A Tacoma, one of Zduriencik’s worst draft picks. Zunino has had an awful 2015 thus far. He has hit just .174 this season with just 11 home runs and 28 RBI in 112 games. In his career, he owns...
