Blue Jays’ Marco Estrada makes sense for Seattle Mariners

The Toronto Blue Jays could possibly find a trade partner for pending free agent Marco Estrada in the Seattle Mariners who are currently pitching deprived and challenging for a playoff spot in the American League West. The M’s once again lost their ace James Paxton to injury, this time after he was struck in the […] Blue Jays’ Marco Estrada makes sense for Seattle Mariners - Jays Journal - Jays Journal - A Toronto Blue Jays Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

More like Ett Branderson Sup guys. This morning had that delightful feeling where you wake up and try to remember why you’re vaguely upset as you turn on the shower and oh no it’s all coming back James Paxton got hurt and they lost to the Athletics again and how am I even going to make it to the kitchen for coffee when all of existence is a meaningless wander through a brackish swamp? But here we are, here you are, and here the Mariners are. First, the news: #Mariners recall RHP Christian Bergman from AAA Tacoma. Seattle places LHP James Paxton on the 10-day disabled list with a left...

A’s just 1 game out of first place after beating Mariners

The Mariners were expecting to do some serious damage in Oakland. They had swept a four-game series from first-place Houston, lined up their best starters for the first two games at the Coliseum and embraced for the return of Robinson Cano. The A’s weren’t impressed. After handing Marco Gonzales a loss in the opener, Oakland didn’t see much of ace James Paxton on Tuesday. He left to an injury after three batters, and the A’s rallied against nemesis Felix Hernandez and beat the Mariners 3-2 before 17,419 at the Coliseum.

Game #115 Preview: Snell vs Estrada

Game #115 Preview: Snell vs Estrada

Rays (58-57) vs Blue Jays (52-62) The Blue Jays continue their homestand tonight as the Tampa Bay Rays roll into town. First pitch is at 7:07 ET. Blue Jays’ Starter Marco Estrada looks to build off his excellent start in Seattle. In that start, he went 7+ innings, allowing 1 run on 1 hit and a pair of walks. He carried a no-hitter into the 7th inning, and then left after issuing a leadoff walk in the 8th. That walk came around to score the only run charged to Estrada, but the Jays still held on for the 5-1 win over James Paxton and the rest of the Mariners. That start improved his season...

It is time for the unexpected, because the expected wins weren’t there. A speedy thread for you. James Paxton is good. Justin Verlander is too. Carlos Correa isn’t back yet. The Mariners switched up the batting order. This is still gonna be a tough one. The A’s are off tonight. Mariners manager Scott Servais decided to shake up his lineup on Thursday, dropping Dee Gordon to No. 9 and moving Mitch Haniger to leadoff. Servais: "I don't know if this is permanent, but if we score eight runs, it may be permanent."https://t.co/OubLtxIiku pic.twitter.com/xzjucCfSFA— Ryan Divish...

Houston Strong—Mariners at Astros Series Preview

Houston Strong—Mariners at Astros Series Preview

The Mariners continue their Texas tour with a four-game series in Houston. The past ten games have been extremely difficult to watch. This stretch started off on an extremely high note: James Paxton outdueling Gerrit Cole in front of a packed Safeco Field. It’s been all downhill from there. Between boneheaded mistakes, lethargic play on the field, and the constant shadow of the off-field problems looming, it’s been difficult to cheer for the M’s recently. The series against the Blue Jays and the Rangers were supposed to help the team bounce back from a disappointing start to the...

Mariners’ offensive woes continue as Toronto’s Marco Estrada toys with no-hitter in Blue Jays’ 5-1 victory

As has become custom since around the first of July, Seattle’s anemic offense mustered a minimum amount of run support for James Paxton leading to a 5-1 defeat against the Blue Jays, much to the delight of the 41,238 spectators packed into the Roger Centre, er, Safeco Field.

I’ll take 1-0 I’ll take 18-17 just get a win, fellas Despite many of our best wishes (and probably some of theirs too), the Seattle Mariners will play a baseball game tonight. Should they win, it will validate, if only for one night, the idea that this team is capable of turning things around. One convincing win, silencing the Canadian invasion, could be a brief cure-all for the current state of exhaustion surrounding the Mariners’ players and fans. Luckily, James Paxton is tasked with shutting down a furiously-competent Blue Jays lineup. Last time Pax toed the rubber against Toronto...
