Mariners call up OF John Andreoli to make his MLB debut, give Dan Altavilla the gift of Tacoma

A bittersweet debut for Seattle’s 27-year-old rookie. It could’ve been any number of players headed to the DL today after last night’s near-Pyrrhic 3-2 victory over the Oakland A’s. Mitch Haniger took an errant Trevor Cahill fastball off the forearm. Jean Segura slid through an obstructive Jonathan Lucroy at home plate to score the winning run. Nelson Cruz’s arm was tingling and purple, beyond his prior few lower body limitations. Ben Gamel slipped and fell flat on his back in a move that was mercifully harmless in last night’s final score but assuredly left Gams with a bruised...

Sounders’ injury problems are worse than you imagined

Toronto can’t really sniff the problems the Sounders have had, and SKC is disgustingly healthy. If it seems like the Seattle Sounders has bad luck and is injured more than everyone else, it is because they are. The Sounders are underperforming expectations for plenty of reasons this year, and while the team they are able to field should be playing better, it does not change the fact that injuries are a big reason why. Seattle and Toronto FC, the MLS Cup finalists two years in a row, both are off to incredibly slow starts this season. TFC earned seven points in their first nine matches...

Mariners Commit to 25 More Years at Safeco Field

Tim commits to many more beers acquired therein King County Executive Dow Constantine announced Wednesday that the Seattle Public Facilities District had reached agreement with the Seattle Mariners on a new 25 year lease for Safeco Field. The original lease, signed in 1996, was set to expire on December 31, 2018. Thanks to the new agreement, expected to be ratified later today by the King County Council, there will be no need to agree on terms for exercising the three five-year renewal periods contemplated in the original lease. The Mariners will continue to pay lodging taxes to the city...

The Wizardry of Wade LeBlanc

The Wizardry of Wade LeBlanc

The veteran lefty has thrown a string of solid starts in May. What’s driving his success? When the Mariners announced their reunion with Wade LeBlanc near the end of spring training, many thought he was not long for the roster. Seattle had planned on going with a four-man rotation for the first two weeks of the year, LeBlanc fit as a long reliever or mop-up guy. He had spent 2017 as a serviceable Swiss Army reliever with the Pirates, and presented a more established option than the likes of Casey Lawrence. In all, though, not a guy who you’d expect to see throw a lot of innings, barring...

MLB Draft 2018: Reviewing the Mariners’ past drafts - 2015

MLB Draft 2018: Reviewing the Mariners’ past drafts - 2015

Possibly the most dull iteration of an already wildly dull thing Oh man, that 2015 draft. The Mariners sure did draft some players in 2015, huh? Some young guys, some less-young guys (no one born past 1992 though); some who made it to the bigs, some who are grinding it out in the minors, some who disappeared from professional baseball altogether. The NFL is by and large a garbage organization, but the one thing I wish baseball could replicate from football is the instant gratification that the NFL draft provides. Forget all the absurdist pageantry and Goodell’s pontifications of “The...

Cliff Avril: Some Seahawks questioned Pete Carroll following Super Bowl play

Cliff Avril: Some Seahawks questioned Pete Carroll following Super Bowl play

Cliff Avril will always be one of the key players of Pete Carroll’s tenure with the Seattle Seahawks, having much to do with their defensive dominance that started in 2013 when the team signed him and Michael Bennett to play on the d-line. In his four mostly-healthy seasons with the Seahawks, Avril had 33.5 sacks, 19 passes defensed, and 14 forced fumbles, as Seattle went 45-18-1, with four playoff trips, two Super Bowl appearances, and one ring. On Wednesday, Avril reaffirmed what some other former Seahawks players have already said: that the second Super Bowl loss — rather than bring...

Jarran Reed named one of NFL’s best kept secrets

Bleacher Report’s Justis Mosqueda came out with a list Wednesday of the “Guys You Don’t Think About Who You Maybe Should Think About” on every pro football team. The Seattle Seahawks used to be a roster brimming with stars that was, especially on defense, also full of less-well known contributors who were also superb. But with the exodus of talent from injuries (Kam Chancellor, Cliff Avril), free agency (Sheldon Richardson) and other offseason transit (Richard Sherman, Michael Bennett), the top of that talent has been skimmed somewhat placing the spotlight on some of the...

Do you expect the Seahawks to beat the Chargers?

Do you expect the Seahawks to beat the Chargers?

I can no longer think about the Chargers without first thinking about Antonio Gates destroying the Seattle Seahawks four years ago. Just can’t do it. That’s the first and sometimes the only thought in my head: 7 catches, 93 yards, 3 touchdowns Seahawks lose 30-21, their first loss about more than a touchdown in years. And wouldn’t you know it, after a brief hiatus from relevance because of age and the emergence of Hunter Henry, LA’s awful news on Tuesday could turn into a reunion with Gates by Friday: Henry is expected to be out for the season after fears that he tore his ACL during...

Some links to get your Wednesday morning started. Good morning everyone! Here’s your daily dose of links prepped for your reading pleasure. In Mariners news... Corey Brock at The Athletic sat down with potential breakout starter Marco Gonzales to ask a few questions about his season. ($) Here’s an update on Nelson Cruz. Nelson Cruz’s elbow is swollen and purple. But he expects to be in the lineup tomorrow. He was dealing with some numbness in his fingers after getting hit. Ball caught him between the pads on his elbow guard.— Ryan Divish (@RyanDivish) May 22, 2018 Around...

Mariners get bitten by injury bug, swat it, win 3-2

Mariners get bitten by injury bug, swat it, win 3-2

y’all that game was truly awful The Mariners-A’s matchups in 2010 and 2011 were some of the dullest, frustrating baseball games I’ve seen. In those thirty-eight games, the two teams combined for just 265 total runs. Matching up a historically bad offense with a merely bad offense isn’t a good recipe for fun baseball in the first place, but aside from watching Félix Hernández carve up Oakland seemingly every time out, those games were pure soul death. Both teams have improved since then, but even still, the matchup’s reputation precedes it. This was a classic 2011 Mariners-A’s...

OAKLAND, Calif. — Robinson Cano was suspended. Dee Gordon was placed on the disabled list. Nelson Cruz’s elbow kept him out of the lineup. And Mitch Haniger was wearing an ice pack on his throbbing right forearm. That’s four really good hitters missing from the lineup. And yet the Mariners still found their way to […]
