Jean Segura has played like an All Star all season, and last night was no different

You’re welcome, Team AL Jean Segura has played like an All Star all season. He’s slashing .323/.354/.458, with a batting average that places him as fifth-best among all (qualified) players. He’s been worth 2.9 fWAR - more than any other Mariners’ position player, and more than double his projections - and his 13% strikeout rate is nearly a career low. He has the thirteenth-highest contact rate on pitches outside of the zone, seventh-highest overall contact rate in the majors, and the fourth-highest contact rate on pitches in the zone. Essentially, if you throw anywhere to Jean...

Some links to get your baseball-free Wednesday started. Good morning everyone! I hope you all enjoyed the All-Star Game. Today is our only day without any MLB action of any sort, but luckily we’ve got plenty of links to keep you covered throughout the day. Enjoy! In Mariners news... Well, that’s good to know.

Mariners players in the 89th All-Star Game, in Washington, D.C., cherished the experience. Segura hit a key three-run homer. “Even though I didn’t win the MVP, I’m really excited," he said after the game.

Mariners’ 2016 trade for Mitch Haniger, Jean Segura changed course of franchise

It’s dangerous to come to conclusions about trades too early. But right now it appears to be a win for the Mariners, with Segura and Haniger on the American League All-Star team.

Mariners burn bullpen, Andrew Romine in 11-2 slog

Mariners burn bullpen, Andrew Romine in 11-2 slog

well then Worst game of the year? Well... I can’t say I can think of another off the top of my head. Things actually started out okay, with Dee Gordon legging out an infield hit and reaching second on an errant scoop from Tyler Skaggs. While a Jean Segura popout and Mitch Haniger strikeout had the bats quickly on the ropes, Nelson Cruz worked a walk, and Kyle Seager lined a base hit through the shift to score Dee. Skaggs would bear down to turn away Ryon Healy on strikes, but the M’s made him labor for 27 pitches. With the Big Maple taking the mound against an Angels...

7-11-18: Open Game Thread

JEAN SEGURA MADE THE ALL-STAR TEAM! I think it’s safe to say that even the most die-hard Mariner fans – and truthfully, some of the players – could use a break from baseball right now. The Mariners have been nicked by the injury bug recently, and are in the midst of an exclusively Angels and Rockies part of the schedule. I do not blame anyone involved for being a little tired. (Same goes for all you beautiful souls who clicked and CAPTCHA’d until your fingers bled to get Jean into the All-Star Game. Your efforts certainly did not go unnoticed.) Nevertheless, the Mariners will play a...

Eddie Rosario loses Final Vote for 2018 All-Star Game

Eddie Rosario loses Final Vote for 2018 All-Star Game

Looks like the Twins won’t be sending any Eds to the All-Star Game this year after all. Outfielder Eddie Rosario, who leads the Twins in nearly every offensive statistical category, failed to win the Final Vote for the last spot on the American League roster for the 2018 MLB All-Star game. Rosario lost out to the Mariners’ Jean Segura, along with the Yankees’ Giancarlo Stanton, the Red Sox’s Andrew Benintendi, and the Angels’ Andrelton Simmons. Apparently Segura received 13,646,439 total votes (in under three days), which is cray cray. Rosario currently has 3.3 fWAR on the...

Triumphant Mariner fans attempt to give thumbs up despite extreme strain Sometimes the snow comes down in JuneSometimes the sun goes ‘round the moonJust when I thought our chance had passedYou went and saved the best for last Accepting disappointment with grace is a challenge, especially when you feel you got short-changed. Right after the All-Star selections were announced, Jean Segura made no secret of the fact that he was miffed not to be voted in, calling it “ridiculous” and saying he wouldn’t campaign for the Final Vote. His teammates took up the mantle, however, posting a plea...

The Angels offense explodes all over the smarmy hopes of M’s fans in Anaheim. And all is right with the world for one night. #VoteSimba put on a show of retribution against all those Seattle fans voting for Jean Segura. 3 for 5 with 2 RBI and 1 run scored, added to some brilliant defense. The game had lots of ups, and a few downs.....Kole Calhoun had a great night.....Shohei Ohtani did well.....Albert Pujols did even better.....And Garrett Richards exited in the 3rd inning with some new injury. Overall, the Angels spanked the M’s 9-3 and joy was had (almost) all around. The Mariners...
