With 10 games to go until Nelson Cruz's contract expires with the Mariners, the club has yet to approach the slugging DH with a contract extension. "Players move on. I would love to stay here. But it’s part of the business," Cruz says.

The 2018 Mariners: The Airing of the Grievances

The 2018 Mariners: The Airing of the Grievances

We got a lotta problems with you Mariners, and now you’re gonna hear about it Last night the Mariners secured a winning season record against last year’s World Series champions, the Houston Astros. This should have been a cause for great delight; instead, any joy in victory was tempered knowing that for the Mariners the season will end when the calendar turns to October. It turns out, we on staff are still in the “anger” stage of grief. Although there are many, many things to be angry about with the 2018 Mariners, each of us has our particular hobby-horse, the thing that makes us a...

Ryon Healy Keeps Adjusting to Some Avail

Ryon Healy Keeps Adjusting to Some Avail

but in the end, does it even matter? When we last checked in on Ryon Healy, we found that the big first baseman was suffering from a severe case of grounderitis. Despite noticeably dropping his strikeout rate - and posting the best single month of his season by wRC+ - Ryon’s August was marred by an ugly ground-ball rate of around 55%. While he was able to cash in on some BABIP luck that eluded him earlier, his power numbers suffered, and the sharp rise in grounders only fueled his year-by-year launch angle dropping. Through fifteen September games, though, Healy’s peripherals look very...

Mariners destroy Astros, clinch season series, improve run differential; fans sigh

By winning the season series over the ‘Stros, the M’s prove that they are, in fact, a vastly superior squad Before this season started, you’d think that a 9–0 win for the Seattle Mariners in mid-September would be a joyous event for fans — especially when it comes over the Houston Astros. You’d think that this game, featuring homers from Mitch Haniger (nice!), Kyle Seager (oh wow!), and Guillermo Heredia (uh wait what?), would restore fans’ confidence in the Mariners offense. You’d think that any shutout win would assuage doubt in the rotation, and in the non-Edwin Díaz...

Game Thread no. 151. Seattle Mariners at Houston Astros. Sept 19, 2018, 7:10 CDT

The Astros are closing in. The Mariners are out. Join the discussion as the Astros seek to reduce the magic number to as low as 5 with a victory tonight. The Astros shelled a sloppy Mariners team last night who couldn’t get real wood on Astros rookie pitcher Josh James, winning 7-0. Tonight the Mariners send their own rookie to the mound, Matt Festa, who in 5.1 innings pitched has a 1.69 ERA but a 1.69 WHIP. The Astros counter with Dallas Keuchel, (11-10, 3.57 ERA). With an Astros win and an A’s loss tonight the Astros would only need any combination of five wins or five A’s losses...

Open Game Thread: 9/19/18

Fall is the best season. The internet is so bad for us. One of the main reasons, I’m convinced, is the eternal content mill. With everyone else giving opinions all day, every day, we feel the need to join in. There’s just only so much to say about some things, though, and baseball is one of those. So at some point, I’m just shouting my opinions at people as they walk by mowing my lawn, day after day. It’s kind of annoying. Anyway, I should read more books, and the Mariners should give me fewer things to yell about. #Mariners Gameday Info - September 19 at #Astros. Lineups, Game...

On Ghosting the Mariners

I see I’ve missed a lot of Kristopher Negrón In our hyper-digital, technology-inundated society, it’s easier than ever to keep in contact with people. The traditional face-to-face conversation or telephone call, which requires multiple parties to agree to communicate at the same time, has been largely usurped by the text message, email, DM, Snapchat, whatever. While these newfangled communication methods can seem more convenient, they’re really just channels for one-sided heartbreak. With an in-person interaction or phone call, at least you’re talking. There’s some inherent...
