Nelson Cruz is fighting time and kind of winning

The Mariners "RF"/DH is showing the signs of decline that come from nearly thirty-six years of living. But, in a career that's often bucked common wisdom, he's fighting back in every way that he can. Nelson Cruz, despite only being a Mariner for a little over one season, has been in the consciousness of Mariner fans for almost a decade. For me the place I first heard of Nelson Cruz was the same place I discovered most non-household names in the 2000's: USS Mariner. It was there, on June 20, 2008 that Dave Cameron called for the Mariners to acquire him: He turns 28 in a few weeks, so he's...

Into the Shift: Pull Hitters and the Defensive Shift

Mariners batters face a lot of defensive shifts. Let's try to figure out if its been detrimental to their offensive output. Last week, I took a look at how the Mariners are employing the defensive shift much more often in the field. They’re now using a shift on almost a quarter of the balls put in play against them. While the Mariners have been slow to adopt this defensive strategy in the field, their batters are very familiar with it since they face a shift so often. Players like Kyle Seager and Seth Smith almost exclusively face a defensive shift when batting. Are they following Wee...

Mariners almost lose to A's, don't

Dorothy, we're not in 2015 anymore. In another year, this might have been a loss. With the Mariners up 4-3 and two outs in the bottom of the ninth, a wild pitch from Steve Cishek sent Stephen Vogt to first. Tyler Ladendorf came in to pinch run and stole second. Chris Coghlan walked. With Jed Lowrie up to bat, the stage seemed set for a same-old-Mariners late-inning collapse. But then, Steve Cishek, master of scaring me and then getting the final out, threw this... ...and the Mariners were able to get the win despite nearly squandering their strong start. I don't have eloquent philosophy or...
