March 16, 2017 Connor 0

I wonder how Jerry DiPoto feels about wins like this. Obviously, he’s got to be happy; a win is a win. My wondering comes from knowing how much he loves sabermetrics, and understanding that most sabermetricians HATE sacrifice plays. Four of the Mariners’ nine runs today came off of sacrifice …[Full Article]

I’m ashamed to say it, but I have a team on the side. That’s right, after a literal lifetime of cheering for the Mariners, I justified picking up a National League squad to hold me over when things get especially appalling as a Mariner fan. That National League team beat …[Full Article]

After roster cuts and a humiliating loss over the last few days, the M’s came into today’s matchup with Chicago with hopes to prove their worth, and they didn’t disappoint. James Paxton went for four innings and showed us exactly what we’ve wanted to see out of the Canadian left-hander; …[Full Article]

Great news, the Milwaukee Brewers beat a high school JV team today. Just kidding, it was the Mariners and I’m ashamed. This is one of those moments when the coach, feigning enthusiasm, walks through the locker room saying “Alriiiiiiight! What’d we learn today?” After his team gets destroyed. Hisashi Iwakuma …[Full Article]

I’ve never been a big fan of the Angels. Between the fact that they’re in the AL West, they’ve spoiled a few postseason runs for the Mariners, and that their uniforms look like a generic create-a-team package from a baseball video game, they just get on my bad side. Today, …[Full Article]

The Mariner outfield is looking better and better everyday. Today’s win was keyed by Mitch Haniger’s clutch hitting and Dyson’s skill on the basepaths. Also, Taylor Motter’s hair. Motter drove in two runs and stole a base all while wooing the crowd with his luscious locks, including an RBI single …[Full Article]

Walk-off wins are always exciting, even when the games mean nothing. They’re even more exciting when the win is against arguably the best team in the majors. Granted, the Cubs’ roster for today’s game was all but void of the stars that broke the Curse of the Billy Goat last …[Full Article]

I think it’s fair to say the United States is the best country at all sports. It’s only fair to say that to justify my plan to cancel the WBC and bring back the majority of the Mariners’ roster to avoid nights like this. Seattle stranded twenty-two runners on base …[Full Article]

Mariners Spring Training Game Eleven: Mariners 9, Rangers 0

March 6, 2017 Connor 0

Boy, oh boy is it great to see the M’s dominate an AL West opponent, particularly a perennial contender like the Rangers. Mike Zunino stole the show today, banging out a double and a home run and DRAWING A WALK while driving in three runs. He’s batting .308 so far …[Full Article]
