3-4: Mariners Play Manhattan Dodgers. Game Rained Out By Loss

Mariners lost a game to a team named after the best player in a child's gym sport. Also Kyle Seager hit a home run. Some other stuff happened but it's unlikely to be as great as everything Kyle Seager related. Back in college, I had a class taught by someone that on multiple occasions subtly referenced her extensive drug use. It was an English class, and rather than teach us to write college level essays, she wanted us to go home and write one simile and bring it to class. Now, had this been a typical college, the students would have at least pretended to try. But this was a bad...

Melvin's L/R Bullpen Obsession Costly In Saturday's Loss

The recap of Saturday's game can be found here. Bob Melvin should never have had a decision to make at all.

Bunt to beat defensive shifts? Seager, Morrison have thought it through

PEORIA, Ariz. — Admit it. You’ve watched a game where a club overshifts its defensive alignment against left-handed hitters, based on spray charts and other telling sabermetric data, and wondered: Why doesn’t the guy just bunt the ball down the third-base line? It’s an easy single and — if the batter places the ball correctly and can run a little bit — it might even be a double. Let’s put the question to third baseman Kyle Seager who, other than first baseman Logan Morrison, probably saw more defensive shifts last season than any other Mariner. Is the bunt a good play when...
