Mariners win 8-2 and sweep Angels for first 3-0 start since 1995

WOOHOO GO MARINERS! So this is fun. The Mariners just spent three days completely dominating the Angels in Anaheim. James Paxton was fantastic. Mike Zunino was amazing. Corey Hart and Justin Smoak looked great. What's not to like right now? Smoak looks really good at the plate right now, even if it's too early to declare that he's been cured. Maybe it was the net drill Cano taught him that helped. Maybe he really did just need some time to develop as a switch-hitter. Who knows what the real reason for this is but man, he's looked great from both sides of the plate so far. Stefen Romero had...

Mariners notes: Justin Smoak coming up big behind Cano

It’s an admittedly small sample size, but new Seattle Mariners manager Lloyd McClendon has to be thrilled with the performance of first baseman Justin Smoak thus far. Smoak, 27, is being relied upon to provide protection behind star second baseman Robinson Cano in the M’s lineup, and through two games he’s done just that. The […]

Coffee and Clippings: Justin Smoak showing signs of promise for Mariners

Larry Stone (@StoneLarry) of the Seattle Times talks about Justin Smoak showing signs of promise for the Mariners… On Justin Smoak’s list of accomplishments this week, his explosive start to the season takes a distinct second place. Smoak’s wife, Kristin, announced on opening day via Twitter (or “tweeter”, as Justin calls it) that they are […]
Burned by Smoak, Angels fail to recover against Mariners

Burned by Smoak, Angels fail to recover against Mariners

ANAHEIM – Makes sense to face Justin Smoak instead of Robinson Cano, doesn’t it? The way the Angels season has started — the first time since 2001 with two consecutive losses — even the best-laid plans have gone wrong. In the third inning,...

Brad Miller, Mariners rough up C.J. Wilson, Angels

Angels drop their first two games of the season at home.KEY MOMENT: With runners on second and third and two out in the third, Angels left-hander C.J. Wilson intentionally walked the left-handed-hitting Robinson Cano to load the bases for switch-hitter Justin Smoak. Cano entered with a .367 average (11 for 30) against Wilson, and Smoak had a .207 mark (six for 29), but the move backfired, as Smoak drove a three-run double to left-center field to cap a four-run rally and give Seattle a 4-0 lead.

Miller double dips, Erasmo shines as Mariners improve to 2-0

Miller double dips, Erasmo shines as Mariners improve to 2-0

Miller hits a pair of screaming home runs yet again, Justin Smoak comes up with a huge hit, Erasmo Ramirez looks terrific and the M's blow it wide open late for the second game in a row. I'm going to spoil everything before we even begin. BRAD MILLER WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO Proceed. The first lefty test. We've all known for a while that the Mariners were probably going to struggle against lefties given their stacked side, but the extent was always unknown. Smoak's had weird flip-flopping splits, Ackley was fine against them when he was good, and Cano hits everybody. While the lineup is...

2-0: Chart

Do you enjoy Justin Smoak? I am enjoying Justin Smoak, and this makes me wildly uncomfortable. Oh, and Brad Miller. Rust Cohle: Justin Smoak (+.199) Brody's son in Homeland: Stefen Romero (-0.50) Erasmo. Smoak. Miller. I'm thrilled by too many things right now. 2-0. QUESTIONS: 1. What's your favorite weekend getaway vacation spot? 2. If you could live anywhere in the world for one year, where would it be? 3. Do you wonder what kind of conditioner Brad Miller uses in his hair? If you saw him, would you ask?

Justin Smoak showing signs of promise for Mariners

Yes, we’re playing Small Sample Size Theater. But more than the eye-popping numbers – Smoak is on pace for 81 homers, 162 doubles and 486 runs batted in, har har – are the more subtle signs of progress.
