Arizona Fall League Championship: Open Game Thread

The Peoria Javelinas seek to become back-to-back champions If you haven’t been paying attention (I, for one, haven’t been paying attention), the Arizona Fall League has been drawing to a close and concludes this afternoon with the championship game. The Peoria Javelinas, the Mariners’ affiliate, left a trail of fire and brimstone through Arizona on their way to a 21-9 record. The next best team was the Salt River Rafters at 16-14, who will be the Javelinas’ opponent today. The game will also feature a match up between Brewers second baseman Keston Hiura, who will play for the...

Mets should take advantage of possible Mariners winter fire sale

If the Seattle Mariners are truly selling, the New York Mets should whip out their wallets and see what they can buy. With the Seattle Mariners reportedly looking to sell off many of their star players, the New York Mets would be wise to try to capitalize on the opportunity to improve their lineup.

Ken Rosenthal reports Mariners’ internal email: HR reviewed Dr. Martin’s allegations, found no wrongdoing

Ken Rosenthal reports Mariners’ internal email: HR reviewed Dr. Martin’s allegations, found no wrongdoing

Another statement of support for the front office from within the organization, this time from CEO John Stanton. The conceit of a Friday night news dump is to bury a story in the blur of the impending weekend. Sometimes, however, the news really does come as 9-to-5ers have one toe out of the office door. Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic has acquired a copy of an internal email sent to all Mariners employees this afternoon at 3:45 PM PT. The email is penned, or at the very least ascribed, to Mariners CEO and chairman John Stanton. The link to Rosenthal’s article is here. I’ve included the...

Mariners add millennials RHP Ruben Alaniz, OF Braden Bishop to 40-man roster

Mariners add millennials RHP Ruben Alaniz, OF Braden Bishop to 40-man roster

The roster moves you thought we were too big for, but we would never forget. A new face and a long-awaited friend have joined the Mariners 40-man roster in the past ~24 hours, and this is the point at which we could no longer evade discussing them. RHP Ruben Alaniz has been signed to what appears to be a major league minimum contract, and as a player with minor league options remaining, he will likely come into camp competing for a bullpen spot in Seattle or begin in Tacoma. OF Braden Bishop, by contrast, has grown up in the Mariners organization, and would’ve made his way to Tacoma last...

Sporcle Friday: Most Strikeouts in a Game

Quiz time! With trade rumors surrounding James Paxton heating up, I thought we should honor the strikeout specialist with a quiz. Mariners pitchers have struck out 12 or more batters in a game 81 times. Can you name the pitchers to accomplish this feat? LINK!

Manny Acta defends Scott Servais and the Mariners, questions remain

The Mariners’ bench coach puts his support behind the organization and his longtime friend On Monday around 3:30 PM PST, former Mariners Director of High Performance, Dr. Lorena Martin, went public with allegations that she had experienced racism from general manager Jerry Dipoto, manager Scott Servais, and director of player development Andy McKay. From that moment, news emerged rapidly. The Mariners, seemingly caught off-guard, issued a strongly-worded, grammatically incorrect denial of all allegations, including explicitly stating that “no member of [their] management or coaching...

Mariners embrace the uncarrier, reportedly have new naming rights deal with T-Mobile

People who love telecom-based jokes rejoice NB: if you haven’t read the site’s programming note, please do. While we all knew that the ballpark where we spend money on garlic fries and crab sandwiches would have a new name for the 2019 season, there was a deadly finality to the images last week of the letters being peeled off Safeco Field, one by one, suspended in the air a moment before being deposited on the ground. In an off-season that’s so far been marked by change and upheaval, it seems tonally correct, if jarring. I would not have been surprised at all to learn that Mike...

Or: If you trade James Paxton right now we will be angry Every Sunday I publish a schedule, done through Google Docs, as a sign-up sheet for the writers for the upcoming week. In-season, filling the schedule is no problem, between recaps and game threads and About Last Night articles and analysis and minors updates and news that needs to be blurbed. During baseball season, the machine that is Lookout Landing hums along on mostly renewable energy. Almost every day during the season, something happens, something merits talking about. The energy of the off-season is much different. After a...

Former director of high performance Lorena Martin has accused Mariners GM Jerry Dipoto, manager Scott Servais and director of player development Andy McKay of racism. The Mariners have strongly denied the claims. My thoughts on the matter? Well, they're all over the place.
