The #FireJerry crowd will love this one

Mariners President of Baseball Operations Jerry Dipoto recently did what Mariners President of Baseball Operations Jerry Dipoto does and made a trade, breaking the seal for the 2022 trade deadline season. It was a relatively inconsequential trade for Seattle, acquiring Carlos Santana for a couple minor league relievers whose results so far have been pretty mid. But bigger decisions loom.

The Mariners will...

There’s no Mariners baseball today and I’m...sad about it? Please advise.

Good morning everyone! Oddly, the Mariners have an off-day on a Wednesday which means we don’t get to see them aim for .500 today. The majority of baseball continues today in earnest, so here’s the latest from around the sport.

In Mariners news... This is absolutely incredible (watch until the end).

Ty is ready for Hollywood.

A heating up Seattle Mariners offense brings the sizzle to San Diego and secures a two game sweep

In two games the Mariners outscored the Padres 14 to 4, with every aspect of the team firing on all cylinders

Yesterday was a day renowned as a holiday that features barbecues and explosive pageantry, and yesterday the Mariners did not disappoint in matching that theme. This season it has not been rare for the Mariners to occasionally light up like that. What is at the very least medium-rare this year is repeating those performances two days in a row....

The Mariners take on the Padres in game two of two in San Diego, coming off of a dominant win

After a fun holiday romp yesterday, Seattle hopes to continue the good vibes and seal a two game sweep in the Padres’ home turf. It looks to be a formidable pitching matchup as Logan Gilbert suits up on the mound for the Mariners, against Mike Clevinger for San Diego.

Tonight’s lineup features a speedy outfield with Dylan Moore getting the start in...

Logan Gilbert leads improving Mariners against Padres

Manager Scott Servais likes the way his Seattle Mariners are playing. However, San Diego Padres manager Bob Melvin is not happy with his club. "This is a stretch where we have not played very well," Melvin said Monday after his Padres were routed 8-2 by the Mariners in the opener of a two-game series in San Diego.

It’s the J-Rod Show, and we’re all just lucky to be in the audience

I’m not well-versed on the philosophy of anti-mimesis, but I do get a kick out of when the Mariners’ performance imitates my own life circumstances. Sometimes that means sinking in to the gloom - and there is a certain satisfactory comfort to be had in giving yourself over to a bad day - but in the case of this week we...

Chris Flexen pitches Mariners to victory over Padres

Mariners get up to no good in America’s Finest City, win big behind strong effort from Flexen, young stars Rodríguez and Raleigh

Maybe it’s the tongue-in-cheek forced rivalry between the two clubs, maybe it’s the fact that the Padres and Mariners share a facility in Arizona and see a lot of each other, but there’s something about a series against the Padres that always feels a little more familiar than a random interleague series. Today the Mariners...

Mariners play the first of two in San Diego

Sometimes scrolling through the pictures in the photo tool helps bring back memories long repressed. I was looking for some pictures from the Mariners’ improbable comeback win in 2016, but instead stumbled on picture after picture from the painful three-game sweep they suffered at the hands of the Padres in May of 2021. In case you too have repressed it, they lost the first game 16-1,...
