Chris Denorfia: Improvement By Not Being Endy Chavez

The Mariners are one of the pseudo-contenders who are are hanging around the second wild card chase, leaving them in the somewhat awkward position of wanting to upgrade but not being in a position where a significant move makes good sense.

Mariners acquire Chris Denorfia from Padres

What would George Constanza have traded to get Bonds and Griffey?

Full disclosure: I’m a Seinfeld freak. I can recite episodes verbatim and I usually don’t have any problem using a line from the show to describe something happening in my every day life. It’s a gift. So as both a Seinfeld freak and a baseball freak, I’ve always enjoyed the episodes where the two intermingled. One episode is 1996′s “The Caddy” when George locks his...

A little offense at last and Mariners beat Cleveland, 5-2

The Mariners not only reached that magic threshold of three runs on Tuesday night, but they were feeling a little frisky and went a couple past it. The result? Well, a win, of course.

Tribe’s a Winner When it Comes to Deals with Seattle

In the 1980s, the Cavaliers had an alarming tendency to make terrible trades. They were so bad at it, in fact, that at one point, the NBA Commissioner stepped in to approve any trade. Many teams benefitted from the Cavs’ front office ineptitude, with Dick Motta going so far as to say, “I was afraid to go to lunch for fear I’d miss a call from Cleveland.” Given their history...
