Mariners need Dustin Ackley to start producing

With right-hander Samuel Deduno getting the start on the mound for the Astros on Friday night against the Mariners, Dustin Ackley was in the starting lineup for the second straight night.

Mariners overcome weather, suspect lineup, and Yovani Gallardo to secure win against the Rangers

Taijuan Walker returns to form as the Mariners overcome Texas 3-1. Baseball, like so many things in life, can be so damned strange. Earlier this afternoon, when the lineup cards for tonight's game were first posted, many of the reactions were fairly... pessimistic.

The Powerful Dustin Ackley, Revisited

Dustin Ackley's power output has been a nice surprise to start this year. We’re a week and a half into the season and there are few things we know with certainty. What’s going on with Hisashi Iwakuma? Will Justin Ruggiano ever see the field again? One thing we have seen are the boomsticks. Two-thirds of the Mariners’ runs have come off the homer in this young season. We assumed that Nelson Cruz would infuse the Mariners lineup with some much needed power but the real surprise has been Dustin Ackley's three home runs. Back in November, I examined the improvements Ackley made down the...

Dustin Ackley and Rickie Weeks: The Unlikely Platoon Partners

NWSB Writer and Seattle Mariners Insider, Brian Scott, takes a peek at the Weeks/Ackley platoon situation-- Can these two maintain their level of production throughout the grind of a 162 game schedule? I guess that remains to be seen but both should have extra motivation to produce given the states of their contracts. Weeks is on a one year, free agent deal. He's 32 years old and a solid year full of productive numbers could land him the final multi-year deal of his career that he likely wants.

Mariners notebook: Ackley hits his first career homer…as a father

Also, Cano says Mariners should “embrace” high expectations for success…
Lookout Landing Apr 6, 2015

Mariners play like proficient baseball team in 4-1 win over Angels, just may be.

There was a Dustin Ackley home run and some Seth Smith extra bases. There were some Felix K's and Rodney walks and a TOOTBLAN from the Asparagus himself. BASEBALL RETURNS. The last time he was out there he was facing the same team, and he was throwing very fast and very well before he took off his hat and waved it at you, and then he walked into the tunnel and you had to wipe away tears from your eyes. Then there were days and weeks, even months, but if you really want to you can think about it like he just came back from that clubhouse door with a new uniform and a few new bodies on the...

Mariners notebook: Ackley hits his first career homer…as a father

SEATTLE — Dustin Ackley built a future memory for his new son by hitting a homer Monday in helping the Mariners open the season with a 4-1 victory over the Los Angeles Angels at Safeco Field. It was Ackley’s first homer a a father. “If you don’t count spring training,” he qualified, “but that’s not as cool. This is his first game here, seeing me play. I’m sure he won’t remember it. We’ll have to tell him about it one day.” Ackley and his wife, Justine, were driving to spring training in mid-February from their home in Michigan when Justine unexpectedly … Read...
