Mariners use daring new homerun hitting strategy to defeat Orioles, 2-1

Mariners use daring new homerun hitting strategy to defeat Orioles, 2-1

fire me up key! | Photo by Mitchell Layton/ Justin Dunn battles Orioles, strike zone, emerges victorious; bullpen holds the door for the win Working with a postage-stamp sized zone from home plate umpire Ryan Wills, Dunn was sharp as he’s ever been over five strong innings, striking out six and walking just two. Honestly, Dunn probably could have collected a few extra strikeouts if not for the insanely tight zone, which was especially tight at the top, all but eliminating Dunn’s high fastball as a called strike. The young hurler adjusted and battled back, though,...

J.P. Crawford declines ortolan, eats Oriole instead, Mariners win 4-2

Mitch Stringer-USA TODAY Sports Also: a Mitch Mash! If you don’t know what ortolan is—and really, why should you—it is a tiny, delicately-boned songbird which, in proof that humans should never have been granted dominion over any sort of species, has for centuries been eaten whole as a delicacy in France. Traditionally the birds—which are fattened up before being drowned in a vat of Armagnac brandy and roasted—are eaten with a cloth napkin over the diner’s head, supposedly to retain the delicate aroma of the dish and also disguise the plucking out of tiny...

Photo by Mitchell Layton/ Marcos As Seattle Public Schools works through its spring break the Mariners have managed to procure a very collegiate spring break schedule. Traveling to a distant and intriguing land like Baltimore, or Tucson, or Stockton to face off against less common opponents in seven inning double-headers with practice days interspersed. I can almost taste the In-N-Out seasoned with Old Bay. Game One of today’s double-dip starts bright and early, cracking off at 9:35 AM PT with Marco Gonzales on the hill. The M’s and O’s are once again employing...

An update on yesterday’s Geroge Kirby news, this one has him hitting 102 mph. Mariners RHP George Kirby sat 98-100, hit 101 on multiple guns, 102 on one gun yesterday at the Rangers complex.

Yusei Kikuchi is mixing the old with the new

Yusei Kikuchi is mixing the old with the new

Photo by Steph Chambers/ This is a crucial year for the Seattle Mariners and Yusei Kikuchi. After 2021, Seattle will have to decide whether to commit to a four-year club option for $66 million to lock him up through 2025 at an average of $16.5 million per year. That’s almost exactly the rate Mike Leake secured in free agency prior to 2016. It could be a great deal, or an unnecessary use of funds, and if Seattle declines the deal, Kikuchi gets a player option for 2022 at $13 million to boot. The entire situation is complicated enough, but Kikuchi’s inconsistency has...

Mariners’ bats rule, gloves drool, drop nightcap 7-6

Evan Habeeb-USA TODAY Sports that’s a sour taste It’s hard to sweep a doubleheader. It’s hard to sweep a doubleheader even when both games are seven innings in regulation. It’s hard to sweep a doubleheader against even the Baltimore Orioles. It’s hard to sweep a doubleheader after the extra inning chaos that was Game 1. I keep repeating these thoughts, but they provide no comfort. Things even got off to a great start, too! After a thrilling, eight-inning extra-innings win (yeah it’s still weird baseball mode here) in Game 1, Nick Margevicius began his first...
