The Seattle Mariners have signed Fernando Rodney to a 2 year, 14 million dollar contract. Rodney will assume the closer role that the Mariners identified as a need early in the offseason. Rodney, soon to be 37 years old is a season removed from a dominant 2012 campaign where he earned all-star honors and posted… Read More ›

Winter Meeting Updates

I have been poking around and seeing what is being talked about and here is what I have so far: Seems like Taijuan Walker is almost completely off the table. Jack Z has said that he has no intentions of dealing Walker. I say almost because let’s face it, if something too good to be… Read More ›

99 Problems but 2nd Base Ain’t One!

The Seattle Mariners and Robinson Cano have reached a 10 year, 240 Million dollar agreement.  This is tied for the 3rd largest contract in MLB history with Albert Pujols, eclipsed only by Alex Rodriguez who owns #1 and #2 on that list. When I heard that Robbie Cano and his mega star agent, Jay Z, were… Read More ›

Jesus Montero Suspended 50 Games

Did this guy get the placebo batch?  Word around the campfire is Montero will accept a 50 game suspension today for taking PED’s.  Im at a loss when I hear that he has taken PED’s, well because we didn’t see any enhanced performance.  He wasnt jacking 500 footers over the Hit it Here cafe… as… Read More ›

Former Mariner Vinnie Catricala Strikes Out On One Pitch

League and Delabar on the Move

Following tonight’s victory during the post game show news came down that two Mariners had been traded, in separate deals. Brandon League rumors have been swirling around sports blogs and websites a lot over the last week, and really picked up in intensity yesterday. We knew League would probably be traded, but Steve Delabar was kind of a surprise. Here… Read More ›

Mariners Trade Rumors

The July 31st trade deadline is fast approaching and the Hot Stove and MLB Trade Rumors will be picking up in the next few days. We’ve already discussed Felix being off the market, and celebrated Ichiro moving on to New York, so lets take a look at some other players that could be moved before Tuesday….

Ichiro Going… Going… Gone

We have all heard the news by now, Ichiro has played his last game in a Mariners uniform. In fact, in almost a too good to be true scenario, he was able to walk over to the visitor clubhouse and join his new team for game 1 of the series. Just 24 hours has passed… Read More ›

A Kings Ransom: Trading Felix Hernandez

It’s that time of the season… we are after the All-Star break, the Mariners are 16.5 games back… One little bit of excitement and/or more likely than not, disappointment, for us nwsportsjunkies is the Hot Stove… MLB Trade Rumors!

Mariners’ Youth Excuse Grows Old

We have all fallen ill over watching the Mariners the last several years. Yet, we continue watching. We continue believing the higher-ups as they unveil their plans and beg for our patience. We are continuously convinced to wait and appreciate the talent that is nearing fruition. Instead, we watch as the Mariners next move becomes… Read More ›

The Frustration Grows (Even More…)

As we roll into the All Star break, the Mariners are holding onto their firm grasp of last place and are approaching the worst record in baseball. As I continue to watch these games, and get more frustrated, I can’t help but feel more and more sorry for our only All Star. King Felix Hernandez again… Read More ›

Peguero Provides Power

Carlos Peguero has been called up while the struggling Hector Noesi heads to Tacoma.  I can understand the skepticism in being excited about the call up of a career .196 hitter, but I think he can provide the spark the Mariners need.  Its been tough watching the Mariners this year, mostly because they are so… Read More ›

Young Guns

Just have patience… really? How does a professional sports franchise market that philosophy to a fan base that has suffered a decade of poor performance? Well that’s the message Jack Z. and the Mariners front office wanted to send us with multiple commercials showing Z and Wedge saying be patient… we are building something special… we… Read More ›

Mariners Offense Soars In Oakland

The Seattle Mariners opened up their 2012 season, again, this weekend in Oakland. I had much doubt, like many, in the horrible offense the Mariners showed us in Japan. However, after compiling 26 hits and 15 runs in two games versus Oakland, one must wonder if Jack Zduriencik’s plan is coming to fruition. Chone Figgins is unexpectedly… Read More ›
