79-64: Beauty, pain, stupidity, glory, triumph, adjective

The Mariners have reached the point where nothing matters but the next day's outcome. We're all in love and that is ok. A) Fervent love. That's the best way to describe how I feel about Michael Saunders at this exact moment. Almost two months ago Michael Saunders, born and raised in a country that prizes hockey first, second and third and baseball somewhere below curling and slightly above mogul skiing, took a check swing. He grabbed his back and got back in the box. Michael Saunders, 11th round draft pick, 333rd pick in the 2004 draft, former top 100 prospect, former major league washout,...

Michael Saunders off disabled list and right into the Mariners’ starting lineup

Outfielder Dustin Ackley misses second consecutive start with sore ankle

Monday's pregame lineups: Astros at Mariners

  Michael Saunders jumps right off the disabled list into the Mariners outfield for Monday night's series opener against the Astros at Safeco Field, slotting in at right field for Dustin Ackley, who will miss his second consecutive start with a sore left ankle. Ackley will have an MRI done today, though both he and Seattle manager Lloyd McClendon both expect a quick return. “I don’t want to get out today and try to be a hero and delay myself," Ackley said. "… (I’ll) maybe just take a few days off and be ready to be ready to rock the rest of the year.” Saunders has hit .276 with...

Michael Saunders recalled from DL

The Mariners talented, oft-injured and always handsome corner outfielder returns at a time of great need. Drop the beat, Divish: Saunders activated from the DL. — Ryan Divish (@RyanDivish) September 8, 2014 A few quick items pertaining to this: Michael Saunders is incredibly handsome. There is no debate on this issue. If, as I *think* I expect, Saunders takes the majority of playing time away from Endy Chavez it should be noted that the best likely scenario for his offensive production is about equal to the 126 wRC+ that Chavez has put up so far in the 2nd half of this season....

Fun on the Farm: Stefen Romero is heating up

Fun on the Farm: Stefen Romero is heating up

A look at how some of the notable Mariner prospects are performing for the team's minor league affiliates. AAA Tacoma Rainiers (71-65, Pacific Coast League) In ten rehab starts with the Rainiers, Michael Saunders is batting .257 with 14 walks, 1 double and 2 runs batted in. Saunders was recalled from his rehab assignment on Saturday due to flu-like symptoms, and he will be eligible to return to Tacoma after 5 days.  This is a minor setback, but he should hopefully be joining the team sooner than later. Stefen Romero currently has a 13-game hitting streak.  During the streak, Romero has 4...

Friday's pregame notes and lineups: Mariners at Red Sox

Here's the lineup vs. right-hander Joe Kelly ... no real surprises here. People asking about Michael Saunders being out of the lineup the last few days in Tacoma. I was told by a reliable source - Mike Curto - that Saunders has a virus and was sent home by team doctors. Which could also delay his return to Seattle. We might not see him till rosters expand.   A few notes .... The Red Sox have signed free agent outfielder Rusney Castillo to a 6-year, $72.5 million contract. The Mariners were very interested in signing Castillo, but there was no way they were going for that much. It's a...
