A good week on the farm as some promotions start to emerge

The MLB draft is just a few short weeks away, and in preparation for that, promotions are starting to trickle through the system: OF Cade Marlowe was promoted from Modesto to Everett, LHP Ian McKinney was promoted to Tacoma from Arkansas, LHP Brandon Williamson was promoted from Everett to Arkansas, and RHP Taylor Dollard was promoted from Modesto to Everett. We’ll cover all of...

Mariners 2021 MLB Draft - 10 Round Mock Draft

The 2021 MLB Draft is a mere 2 weeks away. Time to start focusing in on specific players.

It’s a big draft for the Seattle Mariners as they look to turn the corner from a rebuild into a competitive window. They’ve assembled a deep farm, rich in pitching and outfield talent. There’s still work to do on the dirt, but by and large the team is in a position to take a little more risks in the draft.

Selecting no. 12 overall affords Jerry Dipoto and Scott Hunter the ability to...

Some links on a Mariners-free Monday.

Good morning everybody and happy Monday! I know the first work day after a holiday can be a tough one, so let’s help you get through it with some links.

In Mariners news... Shed Long made history in yesterday’s Mariners win.

Shed Long Jr. of the @Mariners is the first MLB player to hit a walkoff grand slam on Father's Day since Milwaukee's Greg Vaughn did it on June 16, 1991.

Mariners fire on all cylinders, speed past Rays to notch series sweep in walk-off fashion

Poof their it is | Jennifer Buchanan-USA TODAY Sports

This game had it all

Yeah, I’ll say it. Best series of the season, and maybe one of the best games of the year. It had everything: High-stakes pitching match-ups, glorious defensive plays, adventurous baserunning and a walk-off grand slam. What a gift.

And hey, speaking of gifts, Happy Father’s Day! Despite spending many, many afternoons and evenings scarfing Dodger Dogs at Dodger Stadium, my dad is not what anyone would...

Two new hires, a whole new vibe

Hello Lookout Landing!

My name is Evan James and I have taken over podcast duties for our dearly departed (to bigger and better things) Matthew Roberson. While I know I can never match his energy and I certainly can’t imitate his accents or impressions (RIP “New York Guy”) I hope to bring a unique perspective of my very own.

This episode we introduce myself and Addie,...

Goooooood morning! Did you enjoy the game last night? I sure did! It’s my sainted mother’s birthday today, so I’m hoping the Mariners have one more thrilling win in them, or hey, even a low-stress win. Any old win will do. It’s one sweep, Michael, what can it cost?

Mariners channel spirit of Phil Lynott, fight their way back over .500

the boys have BEEN back in town

Remember a month ago when we were all collectively in the Pit of Despair? On the wrong end of two no-hitters in the span of two weeks, a team batting average dipping below .200, and injuries left and right? Around this time in May, the Mariners were mired in a six-game losing streak, swept by the hands of the Tigers and Padres. At 21-26 with seemingly no help on the way, it was easy to take a glance and see a team that was dead in...

This Saturday, a mixed bag of links for your perusal.

In Mariners news... The Seattle Mariners agreed to a minor league deal with INF Alen Hanson, who previously was with the organization in 2019. Promotion season continues in the minors, as LHP Brandon Williamson’s utter dominance of High-A Everett rightfully earned him a bump up to Double-A Arkansas. Less excitingly, the AquaSox appear set to be without another promising righty...

Sorry for getting that song stuck in your head.

I think a lot about challenging jobs.

When not moonlighting as a Mariners blogger/community hanger-on, I spend my day job working as a recruiter, working to fill various executive-level roles in the tech world. That means I’m always considering jobs that might be harder than meets the eye, or where there’s a high barrier to entry.

Hello everyone. After a brief hiatus mourning the departure of Matthew Roberson, who worked very hard, Sporcle Friday is BACK, baby. I can’t promise it will be as good as some of Matthew’s classics, but I can promise that I will do my level best to irritate the hell out of you with some of these. Let’s jump right into it, though.

The move, which will require a corresponding 40-man transaction, marks the culmination of an eight-year journey to the big leagues for Nittoli — a 25th-round pick back in 2014 who turned 30 over the winter.
