2020 Mariners Exit Interviews: Infielders

Photo by Lachlan Cunningham/ Make Jerry sign Marcus Stroman just so he can give up lots of grounders to these guys We’ve hit on catchers and touched on outfielders, so now it’s time to harp on the fellas who work in the dirt. Seattle’s infielders were locked in from day one this year, and looked like what could easily be the strongest position group on the team. Kyle Seager returned to build on his resurgent 2019 season. J.P. Crawford looked to add a bit more bat to his excellent defensive development. Shed Long Jr. hoped to add to his solid start at the big league level. Evan...

Mariners 2021 Free Agent Target: Trevor May

Photo by Brace Hemmelgarn/Minnesota Twins/ Trevor May is fun. The Mariners want to be fun. Let’s be fun. The 2020 Seattle Mariners stable of arms were actually quite a bit better than we thought they would be. The starters ranked 15th in ERA. They ranked 8th in innings pitched. They ranked 9th in walks allowed and 9th in opponent batting average. By and large, the Mariners starting pitchers ranked among the top half in just about every meaningful category. Where the team struggled AND I MEAN STRUGGLED was in the bullpen. Mariners relievers ranked 28th in ERA, 27th in WHIP and 26th in...

Julio Rodriguez is thrilled to be back on the field and can't wait for the Mariners to have a breakthrough postseason run. But for now, he's making up for lost time in the Arizona developmental league and soon the Dominican Winter League.

Mariners begin off-season roster shuffle, outright four players to Triple-A Tacoma

Brady Lail, I hardly knew ye | Photo by Lachlan Cunningham/ Brady Lail, Seth Frankoff, Joes Odom and Hudson all outrighted to Tacoma; Lail and Hudson elect free agency Today the Mariners announced that C Joe Hudson, RHP Seth Frankoff, RHP Brady Lail, and C Joseph Odom were all outrighted off the 40-man roster and sent to Triple-A Tacoma. That puts the 40-man roster at 34 players, currently. Hudson and Lail each elected free agency, meaning they won’t be back with the team unless they elect to re-sign with the Mariners on a minor-league deal. Odom, one of the longer-tenured Mariners...

Jayne Kamin-Oncea-USA TODAY Sports As the World Series inches ever closer. Good morning everyone and happy Saturday! We’ve got even more baseball today with the World Series getting started next week. Let’s get you some news as you kick off your weekend. In playoff news... The Astros simply refuse to die. In yet another elimination game, the Houston bats came to life to force a Game 7 against Tampa Bay.

Sporcle Friday: Free Agent Relievers Signed by Jerry Dipoto

Sporcle Friday: Free Agent Relievers Signed by Jerry Dipoto

giving big money to relievers is a losing game As far as I can tell, Jerry Dipoto has signed 11 free agent relievers during his time as the Mariners’ general manager. He stated earlier this offseason that the bullpen will draw the lion’s share of his attention as the team gears up for 2021, which led me to examine his history of signing late inning dudes. For the purpose of this quiz, we are only counting relievers that were signed to major league deals and actually pitched in a real game for the Mariners, so apologies to Justin De Fratus, who was actually Jerry’s first bullpen...

Photo by Justin Berl/ The former Blue Jay and Met has a top of the rotation skillset and a top of the world personality If the 2020 season was the Mariners’ dating stage with their various prospects and the idea of actually making the playoffs, the 2021 season has the potential for marriage. Breakouts from several players indicated that perhaps the team was ahead of schedule in its much-ballyhooed reset. Plus, with Oakland’s shoestring budget rendering them incapable of paying any of their impending free agents and the Astros due for a karmic smackdown any day now, the Mariners may...

2020 Mariners Exit Interviews: Outfielders

Photo by Stephen Brashear/ The future is bright. The present was, well, SOME of it was a gift. The next decade of Mariners baseball will sink or soar based on the strength of their outfield. Some combination of Kyle Lewis, Jarred Kelenic, Mitch Haniger, Julio Rodríguez, Taylor Trammell, and perhaps some free agent or other addition is the vision of sugarplums that will dance in M’s fans heads this long winter. Seattle’s 2020 outfield was the fertile soil in which two players broke out impressively, and another saw his career careen off a once-promising path. Several of the players...
