It Appears Seattle Will Get An NHL Team, But What Should It Be Named?

For once, it looks like the sports gods are shining down on the city of Seattle. The ownership group of David Bonderman and film producer Jerry Bruckheimer officially applied for Seattle to receive an expansion team, and paid the $10 million expansion fee that came with it. While nothing is totally set in stone, it sure looks like Seattle will one day be home to the NHL’s 32nd team. With the recent addition of the Las Vegas Golden Knights, the NHL currently has 31 teams, so a Seattle...

Povse confident during second Majors camp

It's only been one session off the bullpen mound so far, but manager Scott Servais likes what he sees from Max Povse in his initial work and said the lanky right-hander appears more comfortable as he's returned to a starting role this spring.

Mariners suffer first SP injury of 2018, Erasmo Ramirez to miss at least two weeks with lat strain

The best news for a Sunday morning. If you slept wrong last night, I have good news. Most of you slept better than Erasmo Ramirez, who will be sidelined for at least two weeks after Mariners’ doctors diagnosed him with a strained lat. After experiencing mild discomfort, Ramirez was immediately shut down and sent for an MRI yesterday. The diagnosis of any injury is discouraging, but a lat strain is particularly worrisome. Grade 1 lat strains do indeed usually take just two-to-three weeks to...

Mariners shut down RHP Erasmo Ramirez due to ‘light’ lat strain

The Seattle Mariners’ injury plague from 2017 doesn’t appear to be behind them quite yet. Starting pitcher Erasmo Ramirez will be shut down for a couple weeks due to a “light” strain of his latissimus dorsi muscle, Mariners manager Scott Servais told members of the media at spring training Sunday. Breaking down the Mariners: Lineup | Rotation | Bullpen “He’s gotta get evaluated pretty much daily but the initial (decision) was let’s give him a couple weeks without throwing...

Mariners Moose Tracks, 2/18/18: The Rays, Eric Hosmer, and Isaiah Thomas

Catch up after a busy Saturday. This might seem ridiculous, but one of my favorite parts of February is that if the 18th of February is a Sunday, then the 18th of March will also be a Sunday. It makes planning so much easier. Do you all feel the same way? In Mariners News... Felix Hernandez is scheduled to make his first start of the spring on February 26th. There’s a good chance I will not make it to class that day. The Mariners told Mike Ford that he might play a little corner...

Mariners map out plan for fun-loving Felix

Felix Hernandez is looking for one thing this spring. He wants to stay healthy. The Mariners are looking for something else as well. They want their longtime ace to get back to having a good time and being fun-loving Felix. Which, of course, would come a lot easier if he stays healthy and productive on the mound.

Mariners Moose Tracks, 2/17/18: Bullpens, International Prospects, and Husky Baseball

Pitchers threw bullpens! A lot of college baseball teams had their first games last night, which is indescribably exciting. Mariners baseball is right around the corner, friends. I don’t think I will sleep between now and opening day. In Mariners News... Ryan Garton is a couple weeks away from throwing off a mound as he’s recovering from a hip injury. Sam Moll is capable of starting, but is viewed as a reliever for the time being. Ryon Healy could start taking grounders in the next...

A lot of college baseball teams had their first games last night, which is indescribably exciting. Mariners baseball is right around the corner, friends. I don’t think I will sleep between now and opening day.

In Mariners News... Ryan Garton is a couple weeks away from throwing off a mound as he’s recovering from a hip injury.

Reliever Ryan Garton had offseason hip surgery to repair labrum issue. He is a few weeks out from throwing off a mound.

Clean-cut Leake eyes same results for Mariners

On a Mariners team with several players sporting flowing locks and bushy beards, Mike Leake decided to go the other direction this spring.

Diaz impressive early in camp with fuller frame

It was only the first bullpen sessions of the spring, but catchers' mitts were popping on Friday at Mariners camp as hard-throwing closer Edwin Diaz and burly new setup man Juan Nicasio fired sizzling fastballs side by side for a 10-minute session.

Move over, Ohtani – Mariners pitcher Mike Leake can hit, too

All eyes this season will be on Shohei Ohtani, the Los Angeles Angels’ new two-way star who can touch triple digits with his fastball and hit 400-foot home runs. But he’s not the only pitcher in the American League West who can swing a bat. M’s 1B Healy has surgery | Paxton interview | Jim Bowden on Dipoto Until coming over to the Mariners in a trade last season, right-handed pitcher Mike Leake spent almost eight seasons in the National League, where he proved he is anything but an...

40 in 40: Mike Ford

I don’t strikeout much/I am Mike Ford

Early January: sign up for Mike Ford's 40 in 40. Promptly forget about him.

Late January: look at schedule, remember Mike Ford. Do cursory research, write a few words. He’s a backup to, presumedly, another backup, with 115 plate appearances in AAA; he could be cool, he could flame out. It’s pretty low-risk either way. Promptly forget about him.

Ryon Healy, one of the @Mariners' key offseason acquisitions, has a hand injury and is...

On Embracing (Imperfect) Fun

A meditation about statistics, the offseason, and Mariners fandom. Plus a picture of Chone Figgins. I have been a baseball fan for seventeen years. I’ve gone from my favorite team setting a league record for wins at the start, to sixteen long years of missing the playoffs. In that time, I’ve played everything from tee-ball to varsity high school baseball, with opponents ranging from “that kid who picks flowers in left field” to “literal future top-10 overall MLB Draft selection.”...

Good morning and happy Friday! As many of you prepare for a long weekend, here are some links to get it started.

In Mariners news... Eric Longenhagen at Fangraphs ranked the Mariners’ top 14 prospects. Here’s a fun Felix fact.

Fun fact: If Felix Hernandez (who signed with the M's back in July 2002) finishes the 2018 MLB season with the #Mariners, he'll have spent more of his lifetime as a member of the Mariners organization than he had spent outside of it.
