Dyson sparks Mariners to a 7-5 comeback win over Tigers

SEATTLE (AP) - Jarrod Dyson's bunt single broke up Justin Verlander's bid for a perfect game in the sixth inning Wednesday night and sparked the Seattle Mariners to a 7-5 comeback win over the Detroit Tigers. Nelson Cruz had three RBIs and Mitch Haniger homered as Seattle overcame a 4-0 ...

Extreme Makeover: Outfield Edition

Marveling at Jerry’s greatest creation. It’s easy to forget how the Jack Zduriencik era ended - in part because the memories exist almost solely in our nightmares - but perhaps the biggest departure is in the outfield. In 2015, the starting outfield was: LF: Seth Smith/Franklin Gutierrez CF: Austin Jackson RF: Nelson Cruz Other players who spent extended time in the field included: Dustin Ackley, who slashed .215/.270/.366 Brad Miller, who was not a good defensive player at any position, but had a little audition in left and center to close out the year Rickie Weeks, who OPS’d...

Series Preview: Mariners (25-30) vs. Rays (29-27)

Series Preview: Mariners (25-30) vs. Rays (29-27)

The bizzaro Mariners (the Rays) return home to face the actual Mariners. That four-game winning streak was a nice way to end May but June started off with some more bad news. Losing Jean Segura and/or Nelson Cruz for any extended amount of time makes this team far less watchable (not to mention the already dwindling playoff hopes). It’s really quite unfortunate because the Mariners spend basically all of June playing at home (20 of 27 games). While they haven’t played extraordinarily well at home, they’ve been far better than on the road. You could sort of see how stringing...

Nobody in the American League sucks and it’s making the Mariners season confusing

Nobody in the American League sucks and it’s making the Mariners season confusing

There are only four teams more than five games either above or below .500 in the AL and it’s absurd. The Seattle Mariners are probably already screwed. They’ve lost 4/5ths of their starting pitchers, retaining only Yovani Gallardo from their expected rotation. They’ve seen their breakout right fielder, their All-Star DH, their All-Star shortstop, and their All-Star second baseman miss time. Later today they will announce how long Jean Segura and Nelson Cruz will be out again. With all the injuries and underwhelming starts, this team hasn’t even had the decorum to crater, going .500...
