Safeco is going to be packed tonight. While the Mariners have done little to bolster their preseason expectations with a tripping-over-their-feet 3-6 start, the hype has not yet faded here in Seattle. While a subjective view of the world sees more Mariners hats, shirts and jerseys that any time in...

Solve pitch-selection issues for Mariners pitchers by calling them from the bench? Well, no…

Catcher Zunino’s ability to read batters outweighs manager Lloyd McClendon’s occasional concerns over pitch-selection process.

Beard hats and the most unusual ballpark promotions in Seattle Mariners history

Friday is the third annual Beard Hat Night at Safeco Field. The first 20,000 fans who arrive for the Seattle Mariners’ 7:10 p.m. matchup with the Texas Rangers will receive this year’s free beard hat. A beard hat is exactly what it sounds like: A hat with a built-in beard. Two years ago, the first […]

Solve pitch-selection issues by calling pitches from the bench? Well, no…

SEATTLE — It happens occasionally that Mariners manager Lloyd McClendon, like all of his peers, expresses irritation over the pitch-selection decisions from his pitcher/catcher combination. So question: Why not just call pitches from the bench? That routinely happens in college and high school. Mariners catcher Mike Zunino wore an NFL-style wrist band in college. Many college catchers do. “It was for calling pitches,” Zunino recalled. “They had pickoff plays, pitchouts, the running game. It sort of had everything.” Why not have something similar in the big leagues? The Mariners...

Seattle Mariners Panic Level: Can I please get off the Fernando Rodney-coaster?

The Seattle Mariners’ 2015 season is off to a rough start. After crawling back to finish their first week .500, the M’s traveled to Los Angeles for what some were calling a potential preview of the World Series. Hopefully not, for M’s fans’ sake. The Dodgers swept the Mariners in their three-game interleague series, culminating […]

Taijuan Walker struggles, Mariners swept by Dodgers, 5-2

This time there was no lead to give away. After two days of giving their starting pitchers comfy cushions to work with and seeing nothing come of it, the Mariners were playing from behind from the first inning on. The end result was a 5-2 loss to the Dodgers on Wednesday night.

Mariners get another homer from Cruz but little else in 5-2 loss to Dodgers

LOS ANGELES — Nelson Cruz went deep again Wednesday night. That makes six homers in five games and at least one in five straight games. And the good news pretty much ends there for the Mariners. The Los Angeles Dodgers roughed up Taijuan Walker for three runs in the first inning and completed a three-game sweep over the Mariners with a 5-2 victory at Dodger Stadium. Sure, the script changed for the finale. The Mariners built early multi-run leads Monday and Tuesday before allowing the Dodgers to scramble back for a pair of 6-5 walk-off victories. This time, it was the … Read more...

Fernando Rodney testing patience as Mariners closer

Fernando Rodney testing patience as Mariners closer

The Fernando Rodney Experience has already stirred a debate, barely a week into the season, about whether the Mariners should switch closers. It’s a long season, but Lloyd McClendon needs to keep a shorter leash than he seems to intend to keep.

Mariners notebook: McClendon remains committed to Rodney as closer

LOS ANGELES — First things first: Fernando Rodney remains the Mariners’ closer. Two straight rocky outings haven’t changed that. “You got somebody else you want me to put out there?” manager Lloyd McClendon challenged prior to Wednesday’s series finale against the Los Angeles Dodgers. “Here’s the deal. People fly off the handle and say, `Rodney stinks. We need to change. Get another closer.’ OK, when that doesn’t work out, then what? You want me to go back? Or do you want me to try somebody else? “That’s how all hell breaks loose.” So McClendon will stick with the...
