Spoiler alert: the game ended in a tie

Today’s intrasquad Mariners game featured: no fans in the seats on a gorgeous Seattle July afternoon, a late start, audio issues aplenty, Sam Haggerty in center field, innings that ended whenever the coaching squad felt they ought to, Justin Dunn doing his best Dr. Jekyll/Mr. Hyde impression, and fans in the livestream chat cosplaying as the Seager family. At one point pre-broadcast Dave Sims could be...

Sporcle Friday: Where are the 2019 Mariners now?

out of sight, out of mind

The Mariners, predictably, overhauled their roster during and after the 2019 season. Whether they traded players or expressed zero interest in retaining their services, Seattle cut ties with roughly half of last year’s 40-man roster.

Some of these exiled Mariners are still free agents, searching for a home to wash the stench off like they’re a duck in one of those Dawn commercials. Others have found a new team, and...

Listened to a #Mariners season ticket holder chat with Jerry Dipoto on Zoom tonight. It appears a 6-man rotation is on the table for the team in 2021 also.

A shortened day to prepare for tomorrow’s intrasquad game, and a familiar face returns

Today is an abbreviated camp - no afternoon session in order to give players some rest before tomorrow’s intrasquad game. Intrasquad games will be every Friday with a similarly shortened workout the day before. As a reminder, the first intrasquad game will be tomorrow (which is Friday for those of you having trouble keeping track of the days of the weeks) at 2:30....

A 60-game update from Baseball Prospectus and the previous FanGraphs-based projection look grim for Seattle. So get to love that 2021 draft now.

The 2020 season remains scheduled to begin two weeks from Thursday, and fully released schedules means teams can begin to game-plan for specific opponents and schedule chartered flights with nervous breath. It also means projection systems can offer recalibrated estimations of the season’s outcome,...

Hello and welcome back to this weird version of baseball. As we did yesterday, we’re annotating Tuesday’s workouts for those of you with neither the time nor inclination to watch the stream.

Baseball writing, but make it ethical

If I never see the phrase “in these uncertain times...” again it will be too soon. Yet that’s what the past few months have been—a seemingly endless back-and-forth about whether the season would even happen, and now that things seem to be getting underway, further questions about what that will look like. While it’s nothing compared to what players have been through over the past few...
