George Sherrill has been bad.
A bad pitcher that is. His stat line throughout spring was nothing to cheer about as he gave up 5 earned runs, 4 walks, and 6 hits in 5.1 innings. His struggles have only continued in the regular season giving up 4 … [visit site to read more]
The baseball season has finally started! The Mariners are now 1-1 on the season as they return home from the two game set in Japan. Here are some of my thoughts on what we saw in the first series of the 2012 baseball season.

Just yesterday I was pondering how much longer the Mariners would wait to trim a few loose strings. Today those strings have been neatly trimmed…kind of.
Here is your Seattle Mariners 2012 Opening Day Roster.

Well as Bryant just reported, Hong-Chih Kuo has been released by the Mariners. His struggles this spring are too bad, I and too wish the best for the guy.

I’m a little late on this one… but, at least I’m not the only one that it’s a behind the curve. But, it appears that the Mariners and their ace Canadian and European scout Wayne Norton have signed another interesting prospect, Alexandre … [visit site to read more]

Okay, so this is a scary thing. But, it’s a scary thing that we can tackle together. No one has to do it alone. It’s not like trying to sit through an Adrien Brody movie, or more specifically Splice (boy, the guy who picks movies for us is … [visit site to read more]
So… you wanted some type of news, any type of news, you rabid Prince Fielder-to-Mariners monger? Well we signed a left handed pitcher that throws in the high-80s and gets out a ton of lefties. How does that treat you? Yeah, your going to be a little upset and I see that now. But, that doesn’t make this an insignificant move.
I’ve been pretty sold on the Mariners making a move for a veteran reliever and while I kind of thought that they would be in on one of the established right handers nabbing George Sherrill isn’t a complete surprise to me. What is a surprise to many of us is that Jack Zduriencik finally added a left handed reliver to a bullpen that’s been rather light on left handed pitchings in general and hasn’t had any real decent left handed options over the past three years.
In fact here is a list of ALL the left handed pitchers that have appeared from the 2009, 10 and 11 rosters:
Well, after about five days and 1500+ miles on the road across 4 states in 3 different stadiums I’m back. It would seem that there would be a few things I kind of missed out on the last few days, huh? It’s amazing how little and yet how much can happen over a short amount of time.
While you’ve heard everyone else touch on everything that’s gone down I’ve not really gotten to talk about anything so this is where I’d like to rehash the last five days doing so the only way I know how: bullet point thoughts!
