Mariners rumored to be interested in outfielders Marcell Ozuna, Shogo Akiyama

Photo by Will Newton/Getty Images Take a whiff of that new off-season smell, it’s rumor time. All we have heard from Jerry Dipoto on the Mariners’ plan for this off-season is to expect a quieter winter, and anticipate lots of the work to be done early and late. Earlier today, Joe Doyle took a stab at how that might manifest. Naturally, however, we’ve gotten a few tidbit rumors already this fall of the M’s sniffing around two talented outfielders who will have a fair bit of interest...

Behold! The new cast members for Seattle Night Live: Season 44

There’s no denying this offseason is going to pale in comparison to some of the wheelin’ dealin’ happenings of the last few years for Jerry Dipoto and Co. The Mariners don’t have a cast of high-profile names they can swing for bluechip prospects. Conversely, they likely aren’t willing to ship their own bluechip prospects for high-profile names.

Alas, we’re stuck somewhere in the...

As the less-heralded player in the Kelenic for Canó and Díaz trade, Dunn had the luxury of relative anonymity. Because of this, many fans overlooked, forgot, or plain didn’t know that Dunn was the Mets’ fourth-ranked prospect—one spot behind...

Mariners shut down top prospect Julio Rodriguez for Arizona Fall League

Mariners outfield prospect Julio Rodriguez has been shut down for the final week of the Arizona Fall League season due to a minor lower back strain, according to Greg Johns of MLB.com. Evidently, the organization is handling Rodriguez much in the same way it did Jarred Kelenic, who was likewise shut down after playing just three games in the Arizona Fall League. Johns also notes that another Mariners prospect, right-handed pitcher Sam Delaplane, will also have his season end due to triceps...

This one goes out to all you bullpen lovers.

Yesterday was The Big Maple vs. The Big Justin Verlander. Today, Game Six, offers no such storybook matchup. A full bullpen day from both sides will make for an interesting strategic showdown of two teams with some of the best relievers in the game. For the Yankees, that begins with Chad Green, and will have to do without (or with only a pinch-hitter in) Giancarlo Stanton.

Keep on fighting....

The Yankees, pushed to the brink of elimination by the actively evil and alleged whistle-tipped sign-stealing Houston Astros, look to the Lefty from Ladner to save their asses from a 10th straight year without a World Series appearance. Also, this:

Sporcle Friday: Mariners Who Wore #2

just the tw(enty)o of us

For some reason, nobody on the Mariners wore the number 2 from 1992 to 1998. Here are some theories about why they avoided it so hard:

The number two is too binary, too caught up in black or white. Think about a number like 14. Wow, so many possibilities. Or what about 55? Don’t get me started on 55. Its shape is kinda weird, right? Lots of turns. Many places to get lost. Now you look at a number like 1, straight to the point. Or...

Mariners 2020 draft preview: OF Zac Veen

Future Stars Series

Another prep outfielder with the five-tool+frame motif is rising up draft boards.

My type is unsubtle. I believe any successful rebuild depends on acquiring/developing stars, and the Mariners have a few such players in their organization at the moment. But going big repeatedly increases your chances of hitting big, even if there can be a commensurate increase in risk. Beyond the fact that the team should be heavily motivated to spend significantly as they look to...
