On so many occasions of brilliance in the past, Felix has required some run support from one team. On this particular occasion of brilliance, he required run support from two. So we shouldn’t be surprised. I don’t think anybody is surprised. Even the way things played out was a miracle. An important, fundamental point to This post came from: U.S.S.

Game 162, Angels at Mariners

King Felix vs. Cory Rasmus, 1:10pm It is the happiest Felix Day Ever. I don’t need to tell you to watch, and I don’t need to strain for a reason you should care. I have no idea how we got here, but this is incredible. Enjoy this, no matter what. Cory Rasmus was excellent against This post came from: U.S.S. Mariner, and is copyright by the authors.

Game 161, Angels at Mariners

James Paxton vs. CJ Wilson, 6:10pm Hisashi Iwakuma did his part. Now it’s James Paxton’s turn to shake off a terrible start and keep the M’s slim playoff hopes alive. I wrote a bunch about Wilson the last time he faced off against Paxton, ten days ago. I had a well researched story of decline This post came from: U.S.S. Mariner, and is copyright by the authors.

Logan Morrison And Justin Smoak, Who Is A Player On The Team

So the current Mariner we get to think is newly good is Logan Morrison. Morrison’s the guy we can choose to focus on, if we want to not focus on the various other disappointments. The way this usually works, there’s a handful of semi-interesting young players, and one of them will be performing well at This post came from: U.S.S. Mariner, and is copyright by the authors.

Game 160, Angels at Mariners

Hisashi Iwakuma vs. Jered Weaver, 7:10pm It’s game #160, the final series of the year, at home, and the M’s technically haven’t been eliminated from playoff contention. The Mariners DHs, as Jeff just pointed out, have been historically awful again. Their opening day CF was gingerly dumped on the trash heap like something both foul This post came from: U.S.S.

Today’s Fun Fact

The designated hitter was adopted by the American League in 1973. Since 1973, here are the ten worst team DH seasons, offensively, as measured by OPS relative to the league-average OPS.

Looking back, the correct answer was “utterly collapse!” That’s “utterly collapse!”, selected by 2.6% of you. Good job, one out of 38 individuals. You are fortune tellers. You are fortune tellers who root for the Mariners anyway, which hints at some kind of severe psychological trauma at an earlier age. Imagine liking this team when This post came from: U.S.S.

Game 159, Mariners at Blue Jays

Tom Wilhelmsen vs. Daniel Norris, 1:07pm The A’s continue to slide, but it’s too late now. A fifth consecutive loss has apparently allowed the M’s to go with a bullpen day today, and with the stakes even lower for the Jays, they’ll do the same. Wilhelmsen could conceivably pitch 3-4 innings, but it sounds like This post came from: U.S.S. Mariner, and is copyright by the authors.

There are a number of players to blame for the team being in this situation, but Scott points to Chris Young, Austin Jackson, James Paxton and others.

Q&A with Royals Review

We asked a few questions of our sister site and fellow claimant to the Throne of Grass Creek. With the Mariners and Royals competing for the second Wild Card in the last week of the season Max Reiper of Royals Review and I thought it would be a good idea to get some insight on each other's clubs. Max's questions and my words can be found here. Max's answer are below. Huge thanks to him and the fine humans at Royals Review. If the Mariners must Mariner, at least we can potentially prevent another Royalsing from the Royals. Q: With the often disharmonious relationship between the current...

83-73: The Mariners lost. Again.

The Blue Jays beat the Mariners tonight, 14-4. Things continue to trend in the wrong direction. Source: FanGraphs I don't really know what to write. I'm not sure I even really need to describe anything that just happened. Just look at that score and date combination, because it's all the information you really need to know about this. You may have come here expecting a recap. Well, sorry.

Chris Young moved to bullpen

Chris Young moved to bullpen

Everyone's favorite full hipped, fly ball prone 6' 10" pitcher will not make his last start of the season. This was one you could see coming I suppose: Chris Young wont start on Thursday. McClendon didn't announce who will make that start. — Ryan Divish (@RyanDivish) September 22, 2014 Chris Young was never a part of any offseason plan or free agent shopping lists. He was and is the quintessential "take a flyer" player, invited to the closing chapter of free agency after Randy Wolf decided to lick batteries and tour the country's minor leagues. For a month it seems Young has simply...

News and stories about the Seattle Mariners and other analysis from around the league. There's only one week left in the regular season! Let's start the week off right with some fresh links: Shannon Drayer talked to Lloyd McClendon about how much he plans to use Felix in upcoming games. Depending on the results of Monday's MRI, the M's might consider moving Roenis Elias to the bullpen. Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times talks to Hisashi Iwakuma about why he has been struggling recently. Like the Mariners, the Rockies have removed an affiliate from an extreme hitters' park.

After extended bout of identity crisis, The Mariners return to form in 8-3 loss to Astros

After extended bout of identity crisis, The Mariners return to form in 8-3 loss to Astros

Not the best way to kick off the last week of the regular season. Today there was a baseball game. It was a miracle, when you really get down to it. At any given time there were at least ten professional baseball players standing on the same patch of grass plopped down in the Houston metropolitan area, and each of those ten baseball players grew up in different cities under vastly different economic and political situations completely beyond their control. Many of them speak different languages. Some came to baseball late in their lives, while some had dreamed of this since before they had...
