The Improbable Story Of Baseball's Wildest Comeback

It definitely ain’t over ‘til it’s over. The 116-win 2001 Seattle Mariners were one of the greatest teams, in any sport, to not win a championship. Led by Lou Piniella, the team was built for success: they boasted great pitching, an impeccable knack for getting on base (their .360 OBP was the highest in the majors), a » 8/05/15 11:20am 8/05/15 11:20am

Ruben Amaro Jr.: How Bad A GM Do You Think I Am?

Last night, CSN Philadelphia’s Jim Salisbury reported that the Mariners are “checking in” on speedy Phillies outfielder Ben Revere. This makes sense: Revere has been squeezed out of his natural left-field role, and despite a down year, is still miles better than what Seattle has been getting from its leftfielders this… » 6/11/15 5:20pm 6/11/15 5:20pm

Hey, Robinson Cano, Where Are You Moseyin' Off To?

It can be hard to maintain focus throughout an entire baseball game, because baseball games are long as hell and there are a lot of lulls in the action.

Jesus Montero Heckled By Scout, Throws Ice Cream Sandwich At Him

It's a pretty incredible story, though. » 8/29/14 8:50am 8/29/14 8:50am

Tony Randazzo Ejects Lloyd McClendon In Two Consecutive Games

Tony Randazzo ejected Seattle manager Lloyd McClendon Saturday night for arguing balls and strikes and he just tossed him again today for waving his hand in disagreement with a check swing call on Alex Avila. Last night, McClendon was tossed before he could step onto the field, but when he did Randazzo said "I've seen… » 8/17/14 4:57pm 8/17/14 4:57pm

Pujols, Trout Mock Fernando Rodney's "Arrow" Celebration

There's nothing more frustrating than an opposing closer being demonstrative about doing his job. Say, Fernando Rodney getting the third out, then miming pulling an arrow out of his quiver, nocking it, and firing. Infuriating, if it's against you. Yesterday, the Angels got the very best possible revenge. » 7/21/14 8:58am 7/21/14 8:58am
