Game 123, Mariners at Rays – Stuck in Neutral

Erasmo Ramirez vs. Austin Pruitt, 4:10pm The M’s face yet another of their many wildcard rivals tonight as they head to St. Pete for a series with the Rays. Both the M’s and Rays made some interesting moves to shore up their clubs for the playoff push, with the Rays acquiring 1B Lucas Duda from […]

Series Preview: Mariners come to town to celebrate Kiermaier’s return

The fight for the AL wildcard is going to get real. The past two weeks the Rays’ offense hasn’t been able to come through with a big hit any time they had the opportunity. It’s been tough to watch, but the pitching has been very good. The Seattle Mariners won the last two against the Baltimore Orioles to stop a five-game losing streak.

It’s too early to talk about Marco Gonzales but let’s do it anyway

It’s too early to talk about Marco Gonzales but let’s do it anyway

It’s hard to say anything conclusive yet about the young lefty, so here are a few observations Some players let you tell a fairly cohesive story about them. Marco Gonzales is not that player. The 25-year-old has never pitched more than 70 innings at one level as a pro, thanks to injuries and a fairly unconventional developmental path in the Cardinals’ system that’s seen him jerked across levels for years. Mariners fans have been anxious to evaluate the O’Neill-Gonzales trade, which is understandable; O’Neill represented the Mariners’ shiniest trade chip, and people want to know...

Poll: Is trading for Justin Verlander worth it for the Mariners?

Poll: Is trading for Justin Verlander worth it for the Mariners?

It’s a long shot, but everyone wants an ace. I woke up this morning thinking about Justin Verlander. More accurately, I woke up this morning thinking about eggs and a bagel, and how much I wished it were raining, but eventually Verlander snuck into my brain. This past weekend was one of the most deflating in Seattle baseball history, full stop. There are no shortage of disastrous moments from Deadgar Weekend, but for a team still just 1.5 games back of the second wild card, the most horrifying moment came in the 7th inning last Thursday. James Paxton's strained pectoral muscle put an even...

Happy Thursday! Good morning everyone! Today is sadly an off-day for the Mariners. They’re just about to head off on the world’s longest road trip.

After much thought and consideration, Mariners win baseball game

After much thought and consideration, Mariners win baseball game

It took 15 hits and the emergence of Marc Rzepczynski: Judge, Jury and Executioner, but the Mariners did it. I started typing up this recap in the bottom of the eighth. The Mariners were leading 7-4, thanks in large part to newly-acquired Yonder Alonso, who bashed out three hits–including his first home run in a Mariners uniform–and drove in three runs. It was a pleasant game. Starter Marco Gonzales struggled to put hitters away, surrendering 9 hits and 4 runs over 4.1 innings, but the offense was so good against poor ol’ Ubaldo Jimenez that it didn’t matter. In...

Day baseball! Baltimore Orioles at Seattle Mariners Hello and welcome to your afternoon distraction. In case you missed it, the Mariners won a game last night and broke a 5 game losing streak. It’s cool that they’re still allowed to do that with no starting pitchers to their name. The bullpen is still good when used effectively, which it certainly was last night. I could certainly go for 7 or 8 runs from the offense today, though. That would be neat.

About Last Night: Honoring women in baseball

The Mariners, again, get it right The Mariners might be struggling on the field, but off the field, the team continues to Royally Own, with the most recent entry into this being last night’s Women In Baseball Night. Not to take anything away from lady fans who love their bejeweled tanks and pink logo clutches, but women-centered events at ballparks have mostly relied on this type of marketing to the female fan, a concept seemingly drawn up on a whiteboard by a group of men in a conference center after a 12-hour repeated binge of the 1995 film Showgirls (“chips + nails + boobs =...

Baltimore Orioles split first two games with Seattle Mariners

After the Baltimore Orioles routed the Mariners on Monday evening, the Mariners evened the series Tuesday evening.

Mariners Take Advantage of Incredibly Low Standards, Win

Mariners Take Advantage of Incredibly Low Standards, Win

Bringing back memories of when we could be bad and get away with it There are a plethora of reasons that being a (mildly-to-highly privileged) kid is better than being an adult. No bills to pay, no meals to cook, and much less stress in general. Every kid can’t wait to grow up, probably because of the whole lack-of-autonomy thing, but most grown-up kids would probably trade that autonomy for the whole no-bills-no-cooking-no-stress thing. One of the things that I miss most about being a kid was the low standards. Tie your shoes? Gold star! Just show up to the game? Participation trophy...

Game 121, Orioles at Mariners – Women in Baseball Night

Andrew Albers vs. Wade Miley, 7:10pm The game last night continued a slide that’s seen the M’s fall from sole possession of the 2nd wildcard to being a team tied for 4th behind Anaheim.

Yovani Gallardo vs. Kevin Gausman Happy Monday! Please excuse the oxymoron. I’m thrilled to be rejoining you for the first time in nearly a week, when the Mariners capped off a two-game sweep of the Athletics, promptly finding themselves 3 games over .500 for the first time all season and in sole possession of the second wild card spot. Fortunately, nothing of significance happened between then and now to diminish the M’s playoff chances. Nothing of significance at all. Despite a turbulent season in their own right, the Baltimore Orioles come into the series just a half game back of the...

Mariners recall Thyago Vieira, option Christian Bergman to AAA

I, for one, welcome our new fastball relief overlord. Many of us likely have the Monday doldrums, especially after a tough weekend series against the “Los Angeles” Angels. Fortunately, however, there’s good news on the horizon, and it’s wearing a Brazilian cape: #Mariners recall RHP Thyago Vieira from AAA Tacoma.

What Mike Marjama Brings the Mariners

The newest addition to the organization’s catching core brings promise on both sides of the plate When the Mariners acquired catcher Mike Marjama in trade along with RHP Ryan Garton for promising young infielder Luis Rengifo, LHP Anthony Misiewicz, and cash/a PTBNL, veteran catcher Tuffy Gosewisch was put on waivers (he’s since cleared and returned to Tacoma, causing Steven Baron to be sent to Double-A.). The move surprised some players in the Rainiers clubhouse, where the veteran backstop was much beloved by the young pitching staff. Mike Marjama, a Triple-A All-Star this year for the...

The Mariners need to win this series against the Orioles to rebound after a forgettable weekend. Woof. That was deflating. But what’s past is past. The Mariners need to rebound with a strong series against the Orioles. The season is far from over but it is quickly slipping away. With James Paxton on the shelf for at least three weeks, the Mariners desperately need some pitching help from outside the organization. Ryan Divish did a great job of laying out some of the options available to the M’s on Saturday. At this point, the Mariners simply need someone(s) to throw out there every...
