    Now that Eric Wedge has been hired as the Mariners’ new manager Milton Bradley’s odds of playing a second season in Seattle are seemingly extremely slim. That is if they weren’t extremely slim already, of course. Back in 2003 the Indians had Wedge as their manager and Bradley as their center fielder, and while the…

    Seattle decided to hire Eric Wedge as its new manager last week, but no official announcement was made because MLB generally frowns on teams overshadowing playoff games with that type of thing. However, according to Jim Street of MLB.com “the Mariners have received permission from the commissioner’s office to announce the hiring” and could make…

    News that Bobby Valentine and John Gibbons are both out of the running for Seattle’s managerial opening has people starting to connect some dots suggesting that the Mariners are leaning very heavily toward Eric Wedge as their new manager. Ken Rosenthal of FOXSports.com writes that “all signs point toward” Wedge getting the job and Buster…

  4. The Week Ahead: Three-way battle for AL supremacy

    Sep 27, 2010, 2:52 AM EDT

  5. Ump's needless ejection of Beltre bad luck for Red Sox

    Aug 26, 2010, 12:42 AM EDT

    On Tuesday night, Phillies slugger Ryan Howard was ejected from a 16-inning loss to the Astros when he argued a questionable check-swing strike call by third base umpire Scott Barry. The hook came quickly, without mercy, and forced the Phillies to move Raul Ibanez to first base and pitcher Roy Oswalt to the outfield. The…

  6. Robin Roberts: 1926-2010

    May 6, 2010, 10:45 AM EDT

    Phillies great Robin Roberts has died. He was 83 years-old. No word on the cause of death, but judging by the surprise in the blogosphere and Twittervese it was not necessarily expected. Roberts led the NL in wins for four straight years in the 1950s, winning 28 games in 1952 and 23 each of the…

  7. Eric Byrnes lands roster spot on softball team

    May 6, 2010, 1:21 AM EDT

    After going 3-for-32 and earning his release from the Seattle Mariners, it didn’t take long for Eric Byrnes to land on his feet. The 34-year-old outfielder, who once stole 50 bases for the Arizona Diamondbacks (a feat the D-backs are still paying for), has earned a roster spot with a rec league softball team sponsored…

  8. Tensions escalate between MLB and Dominican scouts

    Apr 26, 2010, 10:49 AM EDT

    MLB Trade Rumors’ Nick Collias continues to stay on top of the increasingly strained relationship between Major League Baseball and various baseball factions in the Dominican Republic.

    Apr 26, 2010, 1:12 AM EDT

    Cliff Lee was dominant in his rehab start on Sunday for Triple-A Tacoma, tossing six shutout innings against Salt Lake. The former AL Cy Young winner threw only 68 pitches, allowing three hits and no walks while striking out four. Two of the hits were a bunt single and a fly ball that the center…

  10. Francisco Liriano throws another gem as Twins win fifth straight series

    Apr 22, 2010, 9:42 AM EDT

    Francisco Liriano was fantastic again last night, following up seven shutout innings last week against Boston with eight scoreless frames against Cleveland. In those 15 innings he got 14 strikeouts versus four walks while inducing 23 ground-ball outs, which along with significantly increased velocity is creeping ever closer to 2006 territory. Best of all the…

  11. Cliff Lee scheduled to make M's debut April 30

    Apr 21, 2010, 9:46 PM EDT

    Seattle Mariners manager Don Wakamatsu said on Wednesday that Cliff Lee will make a rehab start in Triple-A on Sunday. (As you can tell by the photo, they’re quite excited about his arrival in Tacoma!) Then assuming there are no setbacks, he will make his regular season debut for the Mariners on April 30 against…

  12. Orioles' manager Dave Trembley is in trouble

    Apr 15, 2010, 11:00 AM EDT

    How do you know that? Because people who know things — people like Ken Rosenthal — are talking about who should replace him.  Rosenthal’s choice: Phil Garner. He notes that Andy MacPhail interviewed Garner when MacPhail was president of the Cubs. I was rather surprised that Trembley was even brought back for 2010. He’s a…

  13. Cliff Lee appeals suspension, says injury led to poor control

    Apr 14, 2010, 9:33 PM EDT

    Cliff Lee got his day in court on Wednesday, and he certainly can’t complain about being shortchanged on time. The Mariners left-hander spoke with baseball executives for two-plus hours via conference call as he appealed the five-game suspension he was handed for throwing a pitch over the head of Arizona’s Chris Snyder during a spring…

    Mar 31, 2010, 12:10 PM EDT

    MLB.com’s Todd Zolecki reports that Brad Lidge has and inflamed elbow, which required a cortisone injection yesterday.

  17. Mariners waive Garko in favor of Mike Sweeney

    Mar 30, 2010, 8:26 PM EDT

    The Seattle Mariners might not win the AL West this season, but they will have the best damn chemistry in the history of baseball, even with Milton Bradley patrolling the clubhouse looking for signs of disrespect. As Jon Paul Morosi of Fox reports, the Mariners have waived first baseman Ryan Garko, opting instead to keep…

  18. Former top prospect Humber reaches bottom of barrel, signs with Royals

    Dec 21, 2009, 1:51 PM EDT

    Philip Humber was the third overall pick in the 2004 draft following a brilliant college career and went from the Mets to the Twins as part of the four-player package for Johan Santana, but just two years later he could manage only a minor-league deal from the Royals after being cut by Minnesota. Humber twice…

  19. Milton Bradley's greatest hits in Chicago

    Dec 21, 2009, 9:29 AM EDT

    The first round of analysis arising out of the Milton Bradley trade has followed this general narrative: the Mariners fleeced the Cubs, dumping a truly useless player in Carlos Silva for a troubled but useful one in Bradley. And I think, generally speaking, it’s the right call. If everything breaks right, this could be a…
