Haniger homers but Mariners sunk early

Mitch Haniger kept his home run streak alive, but the White Sox hit Mariners starter Mike Leake hard and often, making Haniger's feat a footnote during the 10-4 loss on Monday night.

Mariners get carsick in middle of road trip, dad refuses to pull over

You should have gotten sick at the rest stop, we were there like half an hour ago! Out of all of the things that we know to exist, nothing is quite as amazing as the human body. Consider that we live in a universe where the number one rule is that everything that happens increases the amount of chaos in the world. Everything. Get out of bed? Brush your teeth? You’ve scattered some of your heat energy into the universe, and therefore made it chaotic. Every step you take helps push the...

The M’s Make Some Minor Personnel Moves That No One Cares Much About

What could possibly take away from the M’s winning a road series against a divisional rival? The M’s spent yesterday trying to explain that optioning Guillermo Heredia to AAA while keeping left-handed Ichiro backing up left-handed Ben Gamel was made for baseball reasons. Many M’s fans, and many M’s beat writers, disagreed, saying instead that the move was made to appease ownership’s desire to hold on to a franchise icon, on-field results be damned. At this stage in their...

Mike Leake vs. Carson Fulmer

Hello and greetings on this impossibly beautiful PNW day. I have recently returned from the Rainiers game, where I am happy to report Guillermo Heredia—who showed up the day after being reassigned—looked to be in good spirits as he zoomed around Cheney’s outfield (interestingly, he’s still playing LF in Tacoma). I am still not happy Guillermo Heredia is in Tacoma in the first place, but it is nice to see at least Guillermo isn’t sullen about the...

Mariners Table Setter: Mitch Haniger turns up heat on already torrid start

The Mariners locked up their fourth series win of the season by taking two of three in Texas over the weekend, moving their record to 11-9 as they headed out to Chicago for a set with the White Sox. Salk: Mariners are being nice to Ichiro, but now isn’t the time Here are three storylines to follow this week as their road trip continues with three games in Chicago and concludes with four in Cleveland. Haniger’s hot streak When the Mariners acquired Mitch Haniger, the attention wasn’t...

Mariners notice unacceptable dearth of Cuban players in organization, re-acquire Roenis Elías

All the curveballs

This weekend the Mariners made a trade to acquire a 21-year-old minor league pitcher named Edwin Quezada. This type of move typically is included in our Links posts as it is of minimal initial consequence. Today the Mariners acquired another minor league pitcher, but considering his name recognition it is unequivocally front page news.

The Winds of Change—Mariners at White Sox Series Preview

The Mariners continue their road trip with a stop in Chicago.

A sweep of the Rangers would have been nice, and it certainly felt like there were ample opportunities to win the game on Sunday afternoon, but a series win on the road is good enough. Now the Mariners get another chance to bank some wins against a relatively easy opponent. Hopefully they can flip their run differential back to positive in the process too.

These kinds of series are always tricky. The White Sox don’t have much...

Mariners Moose Tracks, 4/23/18: Edwin Quezada, Brandon Belt, and Kris Bryant

Happy Monday!

Good morning everyone and welcome to your Monday edition of this week’s links! I’m your host Anders Jorstad and today we have some news to get your day started off on the right foot. Unless you’re the kind of person who is inclined to start with your left foot. Then we can help you do that too. If you’re the kind of person who prefers to start with both feet, well that’s called a potato sack race and I’ll kick anyone’s ass at such a contest.

Seattle Mariners – On Pessimism And RISP

Our brains are hardwired to focus on negativity. The Mariners’ spectacular start to the season at this point has almost been forgotten as they ended up 3-4 in two series this week; a four-game series against the reigning World Series Champion Houston Astros and a three-game series against the Texas Rangers. Though the Mariners won the latter series against the Rangers two games to one, the former series against the Astros resulted in defeat. The Mariners were nearly swept three games to...

Salk: The Mariners are being nice to Ichiro, but now isn’t the time

I can understand the Mariners’ decision to send down Guillermo Heredia instead of releasing Ichiro. I really can. It’s all about flexibility. Drayer: Servais explains decision to keep Ichiro, option Heredia The Mariners planned to send down a reliever to make room for Erasmo Ramirez’s return from the disabled list, but they couldn’t after short outings by James Paxton (four innings Saturday) and Felix Hernandez (5 1/3 innings Friday). By optioning Heredia, he can come back after 10...

Drayer: What went into Mariners’ decision to keep Ichiro, option Heredia

ARLINGTON, Texas – A bit of a surprise announcement Sunday morning as the Mariners optioned Guillermo Heredia to Tacoma to make room for Erasmo Ramirez on the 25-man roster. The five-man outfield is now a four-man outfield and yes, it includes Ichiro. Mariners Roundtable: How pitch usage is changing in the big leagues “We’d looked at a lot of different options,” Mariners manager Scott Servais said when asked about the move. “The first option was maybe look at a pitcher (to option...

Mariners go for sweep, break brooms, lose 7-4

On the field result matches off the field feelings of disappointment With a golden opportunity to complete the first sweep of the year and carry some momentum into a series with the dreadful Chicago White Sox, the Seattle Mariners dropped a winnable game to the Texas Rangers. After mutilating the Rangers’ bullpen in the first two games of the series, the Mariners couldn’t generate any more late-inning magic. Yet another Mitch Haniger home run brought the Mariners within one in the...

'Complicated': GM discusses optioning Heredia

Mariners general manager Jerry Dipoto understands the negative reaction from many fans to sending outfielder Guillermo Heredia down to Triple-A Tacoma on Sunday and instead keeping aging veteran Ichiro Suzuki on the roster. But Dipoto said keeping Ichiro at this point isn't about public relations, rather managing the 25-man roster as best as possible through some tricky scenarios.

Erasmo is here, Guillermo is not, and happiness is fleeting

It’s a lazy Sunday morning and I’m feeling a little sweepy. Hopefully the Mariners feel the same way. What better way to avenge the unjustified demotion of Guillermo Heredia than dominating the Texas Rangers in their home stadium?

This feels like the scene in “Hardball” where G Baby gets killed. It robs us of a beloved character, takes away from the fun and happiness that we’ve experienced so far, and could have been...

Mariners activate Ramirez, option Heredia

Mariners option Heredia, keep Ichiro as 4th OF

Erasmo Ramirez has been activated from the 10-day disabled list, as expected, and he will start Sunday's series finale against the Rangers in Arlington. But the relative surprise was the corresponding move: outfielder Guillermo Heredia was optioned to Triple-A Tacoma, leaving 44-year-old Ichiro Suzuki as the club's fourth outfielder.
