The hourglass is running low on this team.

Oh, and we also get a bonus collision between Victor Martinez and Logan Morrison at first base. Fortunately nobody got hurt here, so this video is just a lot of fun to watch.

Joe Kelly gave his old mates fits. Well, maybe he gave them fits before too. Maybe they weren’t his mates. Maybe there were long-simmering disputes between him and the Cardinals about politics and religion and things. We can’t know!

Justin Smoak is off the disabled list after missing nearly a month with a strained quadriceps, but instead of simply adding him to the active roster the Mariners demoted the first baseman to Triple-A.
Jun 24, 2014, 6:44 AM EDT
Two guys had multiple homer games last night. Four teams got shutout. Just another night in the all-or-nothing age of Major League Baseball

Logan Morrison required five stitches in his forehead after he broke his bat in frustration yesterday, but the good news is that he won’t have to miss any time.
Jun 16, 2014, 8:18 AM EDT
Breakin’ bats in the hot sun . . . he fought the bat and the bat won, he fought the bat and the bat won.

It looked like the Mariners might give Nick Franklin an extended opportunity to earn playing time in their outfield following Logan Morrison’s hamstring injury, but one day after Franklin started in the outfield for the first time in his professional career he’s headed back to Triple-A.
Apr 23, 2014, 1:05 PM EDT
Nick Franklin is trying to find a way into the Mariners’ lineup.

Nick Franklin lost his job to Robinson Cano, but now he’s headed back to Seattle.

Another day, another controversial tweet from Logan Morrison: If I were to be Native American. Would I not get taxed? If this is true, I'm so jealy! — Logan Morrison (@CupOfLoMo) March 17, 2014 You know, because white males have had it so tough. Yikes. Of course, Morrison has had a number of Twitter missteps…

The Mariners’ signing of Robinson Cano to a ten-year, $240 million was supposed to be the kick-off to a wild off-season. When the news died down, the Mariners were reported to have shown interest in trading for Rays ace David Price, and signing free agents Matt Garza and/or Nelson Cruz. GM Jack Zduriencik only ended…

With the off-season additions of Logan Morrison and Corey Hart, the Mariners were seemingly stockpiling first base types. But according to manager Lloyd McClendon, first base is Justin Smoak‘s to lose. Despite hitting .238, Smoak showed improvement last season, setting a career-high in home runs (20), slugging percentage (.412), and on-base percentage (.334). Via Bob…

Just a couple of days ago it appeared that the Mariners and Nelson Cruz were slated to come to an agreement. Not so fast. Chris Cotillo of MLB Daily Dish reports that the talks between the sides are “on hold.” Why, exactly, is unclear. Could be a financial issue, could be just a change of…

Carlos Santana and Jesus Montero were catchers once upon a time. Not particularly great catchers (in Montero’s case a pretty lousy one). But they could hit. Well, both hit in the minors and Santana has hit everywhere. Montero is something of a dumpster fire at the moment. Either way, neither of them will be catching…

Bob Nightengale of USA Today reported Thursday that the Mariners are “cautiously optimistic” about signing free agent outfielder Nelson Cruz. Two days later, all signs point to the scenario becoming a reality: Keep hearing from industry insiders that it's a matter of time before #Mariners reach deal with free-agent outfielder Nelson Cruz. — Bob Dutton…

The Mariners have reportedly agreed to a two-year, $14 million contract with reliever Fernando Rodney, but it sounds like their eventful winter isn’t over yet: The #Mariners say they are all in and yes, are cautiously optimistic they will also sign slugger Nelson Cruz. — Bob Nightengale (@BNightengale) February 6, 2014 We have heard the…

Jon Heyman reports that the Mariners and Logan Morrison have avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $1.75 million contract. Morrison, acquired by the Mariners in a December trade, requested $2.5 million. The M’s countered with $1.1 million. He can get an extra $350K in incentives, however. He has hit .236 with a .708 OPS in 178…
