Mariners beat the Blue Jays in a quick game to kick off the three day weekend. Source: FanGraphs Three day weekend: Felix Hernandez, .265 WPAGoing back to work on Tuesday: Brad Miller, -0.64 WPA. Technically tied with Chris Taylor, but we'll give the edge to the Virginian for some slick fielding. Also, credit to Fernando Rodney for putting up good numbers like a save and a positive WPA after turning a comfortable 4-1 lead into a tense 4-3 nail-biter. Guy just knows how to win.

Every good bullpen is the same; every bad bullpen is bad in its own way

With Danny Farquhar’s loss yesterday to Baltimore, the M’s tied the historically hapless Athletics with 12 bullpen losses on the year, the most in the majors. M’s fans know well, of course, that the pen hasn’t been operating at peak effectiveness, and that it’s cost the M’s several wins, but nationally, the M’s bullpen struggles This post came from: U.S.S.

Ineptitude-off in Baltimore as the Mariners fall to Orioles, 4-5.

The Orioles beat the Mariners and it was not pretty. It's difficult to know where to start with this one, to tell you the truth. I mean, today's baseball game between the Mariners and the Orioles had, without exaggerating, almost everything you could possibly have in a single game, save for bees and people trying to touch Adrian Beltre's head. Don't believe me? Let's see here oh we had a Player making debut with new team. A first-inning grand slam. There was a two-and a half hour rain delay. Why not a pinch-hit comeback from the losing team. There were some stolen bases, and of course,...

The Seattle Mariners Get A New Backstop, Trade For Castillo

NWSB Writer and Seattle Mariners Insider, Brian Scott, breaks down the Medina-Castillo swap the Mariners pulled off with the Cubs-- For the Mariners, they get Castillo. A much needed, veteran catcher to fill in behind Mike Zunino. It had become increasingly apparently that skipper Lloyd McClendon was reluctant to give Zunino a day off because it meant he had to give Jesus Sucre, owner of a career .186 batting average, a spot in the lineup.

Cut the Cord Mariners It’s Time To Let Ackley Go!

NWSB Writer and Seattle Mariners Insider, Brian Scott, weighs in on the Dustin Ackley situation. Is it time for Ack Attack to move on-- Ackley is under contract for the remainder of the 2015 season. He's going to be eligible for salary arbitration for the first time this off season and I just don't see the M's wanting to offer Ackley more money to stay.

Game 40, Mariners at Orioles

JA Happ vs. Chris Tillman, 9:35am It’s early. Very nice win yesterday, as Roenis Elias continued to pitch far, far better in the bigs than his minor league track record would indicate. A reminder: When Elias was called up, he’d made 3 starts in Tacoma and had an ERA over 8 – he’d given up This post came from: U.S.S. Mariner, and is copyright by the authors.

Lookout Linkage, 5/21/15

News and stories about the Seattle Mariners and other analysis from around the league. The Mariners have a pretty early game today, but here's some quick reading before the M's attempt to take the rubber match from the O's: The M's have released catcher John Baker from Tacoma to make room for Jesus Sucre in Triple-A. Seattle has also signed reliever Kevin Gregg to a minor league deal. Drew Pomeranz will get his shoulder checked out tomorrow. The A's are re-hiring Ron Washington to help with their horrible defense. Yoan Moncada is now playing minor league games in the Red Sox'...

Seattle Mariners defeat Baltimore Orioles, Major League Baseball team, with score of 4-2

Roenis threw a vintage 5-hit near shutout while the M's bats actually gave him some runs to work with. It's a hard and fast rule that nobody on LL dot com gives two damn shits about your fantasy team, but I have decided that I'm going to break that rule so I can tell you that I drafted Taijuan Walker on my fantasy team this season, and he has been really terrible and it has made my team really terrible which doesn't do much to hide the fact that I'm really terrible at fantasy baseball. Like, terrible terrible. I don't actually know the first thing about playing fantasy baseball, and to be...

The rotation problem we should be talking about

A lot has gone wrong for the Mariners this season. Another injury in the starting rotation could make things a whole lot worse. Anyone paying attention knows the Mariners have had their fare share of underwhelming performances this year. Robinson Cano has an 84 wRC+. Kyle Seager hasn't hit his stride yet and Dustin Ackley was promoted to starting center fielder despite a putrid start at the plate. Mike Zunino still can't hit fastballs. The bullpen has been a shadow of its 2014 self. There's a lot going wrong right now. For all of Seattle's problems though, the starting rotation has...

Mariners squander early lead, lose 9-4 to Orioles

The team's first east coast game played by a team on west coast time. Baseball is a game with a high degree of randomness and unfairness. You don't have to be a Mariner fan who's watched dozens and dozens of superlative Felix Hernandez starts end in defeat to know this. You are one, for some reason, but that's not the point. No the point is that in a game with so much velocity and so few right angles things are going to happen. Bad teams play poorly and win against good teams sometimes. Many times in fact. Tonight the Mariners allowed for no such whims of chance. They offered up a game to...

Mariners Trade Yoervis Medina For Mike Zunino Off Days

Officially, the deal is Yoervis Medina to the Cubs in exchange for catcher Welington Castillo. And, indeed, that’s what’s happening — the Mariners are giving up the Medina asset, and they’re receiving a whole new person, who will have a locker in the clubhouse and everything. But this isn’t a deal that’s really about Medina, This post came from: U.S.S. Mariner, and is copyright by the authors.

The one big red flag with Robinson Cano's slow start

This hopefully isn't the beginning of Robinson Cano's serious decline, but it might be what it'd look like. I don't believe this is the beginning of the end for Robinson Cano. I don't, because I can't. Cano, tabbed to be a cornerstone of the franchise for a decade, will be paid $24 million from now until I'm an age I'd rather not calculate—and the idea of this going to hell after just a year is something I'm going to mentally block out as much as I can. I mean, come on, it's Robbie Cano. All you have to do is look at the back of his baseball card to know he's going to be alright. That's...
