Seattle Mariners at Miami Marlins series primer

Unfamiliar foes will square off in a three-game weekend set at Marlins Park. The Mariners and Marlins have played each other just nine times, with the club from the Pacific Northwest owning a 5-4 advantage. The teams last met in 2011 at Safeco Field where the Mariners won two of three. The Marlins -- oddly enough -- were the home team, playing 3,300 miles from home because of a venue...

Mariners at Marlins game preview

TV: FOX Sports Florida Time: Pregame coverage begins at 6:30 p.m. Chris Young's first start in the majors in 19 months was likely everything he and Seattle Mariners manager Lloyd McClendon could have hoped for.

Idiot Rangers fan storms field, flashes thumbs up before he’s tackled (pics/vid)

A fan with more bravado than brains briefly interrupted the Texas Rangers-Seattle Mariners game at Globe Life Park in the seventh inning on Wednesday night. The moronic field invader did manage to execute a pretty amusing “thumbs-up” pose before being tackled by security. Well played, idiot guy. But this is what happened to him shortly […] The post Idiot Rangers fan storms...

Mariners manager hands one to the Rangers

ARLINGTON, Texas - The Seattle Mariners gave the Texas Rangers two gifts in the eighth and ninth innings Wednesday. The first came from manager Lloyd McClendon, who inexplicably removed starting pitcher Felix Hernandez in the eighth inning despite the fact he held a 2-0 lead and had only thrown 96 pitches. That would provide the backdrop for the Rangers' fourth walk-off win of...

Seattle Mariners offense off to streaky start

Mariner Runs Come Feast or Famine The Seattle Mariners are off to a reasonably good start at 7-6.  I use the term “reasonably good” because while I’m sure you’d like to see them at 13-0 I think you have to consider this a team that has been above the .500 level since 2009 when they won 85 games. Major League Baseball is not like the NFL.  MLB teams can’t turn around a...

The Seattle Mariners recall Nick Franklin

Switch-Hitting Franklin back with M’s This morning Nick Franklin tweeted that he was flying to Texas, presumably to join the Mariners as they face off with the Rangers again. And it couldn’t come at a better time for the Mariners who have been streaky on offense. Where will Franklin fit in? Brad Miller, the man that won the shortstop job over Franklin by hitting .410 in spring...

Mariners' Taijuan Walker scratched from rehab start

Taijuan Walker has been trying so hard to get back to the major leagues ever since he was shut down with shoulder inflammation at the end of February.  The rookie right-hander was very close to starting last night's game against the Texas Rangers but the Mariners chose to have him make a rehab start at Triple-A instead.  Jayson Jenks of the Seattle Times reports what happened...

Mariners offered Morales multi-year deal in 2013, it was declined

Caterwauling about the Seattle Mariners’ offense reached its typical level Monday morning. The Mariners were shut out Sunday and shut down during three losses in the prior four games when they scored a run total. Seven runs in Texas on Monday night quelled some of the angst. Yet, a question was often repeated: What about Kendrys Morales? Morales is a free agent still available...

Is Brad Miller Of The Seattle Mariners The Real Deal? ☆

In my last piece, I expressed some skepticism that either Justin Smoak or Dustin Ackley had “figured it out” despite their hot start to the season.  I cited an established track record over the past several years and the nothing in the extremely small sample size to suggest anything had changed.  We tend to not notice hot streaks when they happen in July, but when they happen...

The Seattle Mariners are getting closer and closer to having their #2 starter back in the rotation. Hisashi Iwakuma threw 55 pitches in a Tuesday bullpen session, and he will pitch a simulated game at the end of the week. The confusion, though, is about which day that game will occur.

Here’s A Great GIF of Kyle Seager Half-Heartedly Swinging At An Awful Pitch In The Dirt

It’s hard not to feel kind of bad for Mariners third baseman Kyle Seager here. He knew the pitch was awful and he had no chance of hitting it, but the hit-and-run call was on so he was pretty much forced to swing at it anyways, giving us this hilarious highlight. It’s almost like you can see Seager’s thought process on the sequence: “okay, hit-and-run…gotta swing no matter...

Will Mets Have Revived Interest In Nick Franklin?

The trade buzz on Nick Franklin is picking up again as both the Yankees and Tigers continue to get meager production from their shortstop position. And while there’s nothing to suggest that the Mets have any revived interest in the Mariners prospect, that could change if Ruben Tejada doesn’t start picking it up at the plate. Franklin, who just turned 23, is currently tearing...
