40 in 40: Anthony Swarzak

It’s an odd-numbered year, so Anthony Swarzak will be just fine Anthony Swarzak is a right-handed pitcher. While you might have come to expect a more hard-hitting entry point of analysis at Lookout Landing, I am compelled to outline that fact in writing at the top. Despite zero evidence to suggest it, Swarzak has an undeniably left-handed pitching name, and just like Jason Hammel, it will take insurmountable evidence to convince my brain otherwise. With that out of the way, we can address what else Anthony Swarzak is. He’s a 33-year-old two-pitch reliever. He’s coming off the worst...

The Mariners are making some interesting “outsider” hires in the minors

The Mariners are making some interesting “outsider” hires in the minors

The Mariners, like several other teams, are looking beyond the ranks of former pro players and digging into the data Yesterday, the Mariners announced their minor league coaching staffs for each of the various affiliates. Most of the names are familiar, but there are a few standouts both in new hires and in people being reshuffled at various levels of the organization. Like they’re doing on the field, the Mariners are going younger with their coaching staff. They’re also following an industry trend in the recruiting talent outside of the realm of ex-pro players; as we’ve seen...

A journeyman catcher, a rebuilding team, and a baseball romance for the days ahead. I’m a baseball romantic; my record is pretty clear on that. Anyone can pick a superstar as their favorite player, but I (like many of you) gravitate towards the lesser sung players, the players who make us think that even with our human foibles we can find success. They keep plugging away and maybe we see ourselves in them. We are not the best at what we do either, but if we keep working maybe we will hit our equivalent of a home run in life. It was the baseball romantic side of me that wanted to write...

What can the Mariners expect from their one remaining 2018 mid-season acquisition? As the 2018 trade deadline approached in late July, the Mariners were plummeting out of contention. Most fans and writers believed that if the team was to have a chance to stop the bleeding and salvage a playoff spot, they would have to make a splash at the deadline. Unfortunately, it appeared that the team’s “splash” had come in late May with the trade for Denard Span and Álex Colomé. The team’s deadline acquisitions ended up coming in the form of a paltry trio of relievers and Cameron Maybin....

Pitchers and catchers reporting in a month brings little sunshine for Mariners fans

After an offseason that saw the team ship out some of its best players, and with the club in 'step-back' mode, there's little reason for hope this season.

40 in 40: Ryon Healy

First baseman Ryon Healy could prove his worth to the Seattle Mariners by simply showing more restraint at the plate What’s the first thing that comes to mind when you think of Ryon Healy? Is it that O that is normally an A? Maybe his protruding ears that add to an undeniable charm? Perhaps you think of his ineffable goofiness as he took the “Aw shucks, fellas, I’m just happy to be here” role on an extremely talented 2018 Mariner roster. Many of you will remember how amped he was during James Paxton’s no-hitter. Unfortunately, the first images that spring to mind...
