How (Un)Lucky Have The Seattle Mariners Been?

In the throes of the NFL season and endless scandals, many Seattle Mariners fans can be forgiven if they didn’t actually see Fernando Rodney walk four hitters in the 10th to lose the game to the Oakland A’s over the weekend. Although it is pretty difficult to walk four batters in one inning, Rodney hasn’t blown an inordinate number of saves over the course of the season. It’s...

Angels bullpen gets tagged by Mariners

How the Angels lost: The first two batters Jason Grilli faced to start the top of the fifth inning Tuesday night spoke volumes. It was a sign that it was going to be a long night for the Angels bullpen in what would eventually be a 13-2 loss to Seattle. Grilli walked the first batter he faced, Kendrys Morales, and hit the second, Logan Morrison. And then bottom fell out. At the end...

Boxscore Breakdown #150: The drought is over – Angels 8, Mariners 1

The drought is over! No, you still can’t water your lawn, but you can go out on that dried out lawn and jump for joy that the Angels will be returning to the playoffs after missing out the last four seasons. Maybe you can even water your lawn with a celebratory champagne shower. It might be more prudent to wait until they clinch the AL West though. Or maybe all celebrations...

The Seattle Mariners scout who had an ice cream sandwich delivered to Jesus Montero during a minor league game is now looking for a new job.

Series Preview: Angels vs. Mariners vs. Clinch

This could be the clinchiest series the Angels ever clinched. They can clinch a playoff berth and the AL West title all in this series. They can also clinch at least a tie for their second-most wins in a season ever at 97. The only thing they can’t clinch is the best record in the AL, though they can push it pretty close. The downside of that is that this could be the last semi...

Moss, A's get up off canvas in Seattle

Brandon Moss went the pro-active route in trying to end his home run drought, and it wasn’t getting him anywhere. The A’s slugger was going to the plate looking to jack the ball over the fence. Instead he only found more frustration. The dry spell finally ended when Moss connected off Seattle’s Chris Young in the seventh inning Sunday. His solo shot snapped a 39-game personal...

A’s walk back from brink to top Mariners in 10th

On Saturday night at a packed, loud Safeco Field, the A’s faced their most frequent tormentor and the likelihood of slipping out of a playoff spot altogether. With a sense of unexpected drama that harked back to the 2012 A’s, though, Oakland hung tough with All-Star Felix Hernandez, then beat Seattle closer Fernando Rodney in the 10th inning. Rodney put three men aboard, one...

No arrows for Fernando Rodney

You have to hand it to the Oakland Athletics. They are a smart team that uses their information very wisely. The A's had tied a huge game with the Seattle Mariners up with a home run by Josh Donaldson off of perhaps the best pitcher in the American League. The homer ensured that King Felix could not seal the deal on perhaps the biggest start of his career in Seattle. In the...

Minor Accomplishments: September Pitcher Call-Ups

After speculating who might get the call this September, we now know which prospects are getting their feet wet in the majors. More importantly, we can decide which ones may provide some fantasy value. Unlike hitter call-ups, pitchers sometimes change roles completely when they first break in. So an arm like Taijuan Walker - whom we all know is destined to be a starter - finds himself...

Mariners have a shot to move up in standings

Robinson Cano Mariners – Photo Credit – Keith Allison With the Seattle Mariners winning 72 games last season, one had to wonder what exactly Robinson Cano saw in the team when he signed that huge 10-year $240 million deal during the off season. First of all, he was going to a small market, which might be the world’s biggest understatement considering he was coming from the...
