the hottest remix to hit the streets in years During this offseason, the Seattle Mariners made a pivotal trade in the initial stages of its well-publicized roster turnover. Out went fan favorites Edwin Díaz and Robinson Canó, in came pitching prospect Justin Dunn, OF/1B/team dad Jay Bruce, relievers Anthony Swarzak and Gerson Bautista, and a burgeoning 19-year-old from Waukesha, Wisconsin. His name? Jarred Kelenic. His game? Absolutely annihilating every pitcher in the South Atlantic League, where he got off to a historically-hot start. Today, Kelenic is hitting .314/.404/.550 with a 178...

The Mariners come home and try to pick up the pieces The Mariners’ most recent road trip was always going to be the team’s early litmus test. It’s a hard ask of any team to face three of the best teams in the American League in ten games in ten straight days. Unfortunately, the Mariners 2-8 performance was apocalyptically poor. The team’s Fangraphs playoff odds, already bad, have now plummeted to less than 2%. Here’s the good news. We now know what we have. Jerry Dipoto will no longer harbor any illusions over whether it’s right to trade Edwin Encarnación and Jay Bruce. The...

the future is now After a brutal last couple weeks, the call-ups of J.P. Crawford and Shed Long have breathed new excitement into the 2019 Mariners. Alas, only one of them is starting tonight: Mariners at Red Sox lineups pic.twitter.com/aWX33bhebq— Ryan Divish (@RyanDivish) May 10, 2019 With the right-handed Rick Porcello going tomorrow for the Red Sox, though, it seems highly likely that Shed will make his Major League debut then. The Mariners are running out a righty-heavy lineup today, with Crawford and Jay Bruce the lone southpaws. Erik Swanson is coming off his first big-league...

Jay Bruce has had ‘bizarre’ season since Mets trade

Jay Bruce could only find one word to accurately describe his season up to this point. “Bizarre,” the former Mets outfielder told The Post before his new team, the Mariners, began a three-game series against the Yankees in The Bronx. It certainly fits. Bruce had just 19 hits in 104 at-bats as play began Monday...

the race to .500 ball continues unabated I hope that if you live in the Seattle area, where today is an absolute sparkler, you didn’t watch this game, and instead went outside and soaked up some joy.

What Nick Senzel means to us

This is either the beginning of an era or maybe it isn’t About 11 years ago to the day, one of the biggest and most exciting events in my life as a Reds fan happened. Jay Bruce, the 21-year-old #1 prospect in all of baseball debuted and lit the entire planet on fire. His first two weeks in the league, he hit .500. He came up with big dramatic hits seemingly every other night. It was an absolute thrill in a way I had never really experienced as a Reds fan before. He was Hope and Change, which as you might recall, was kind of a thing back then. He was going to be good and he was going to...
