  1. Do the Houston Astros have what it takes?

    May 6, 2013, 10:28 AM EDT

    Detroit Tigers v Houston Astros

    The Houston Astros have five pseudo regulars in thelr lineup — FIVE — who are striking out more than once per game. This is a rather astounding achievement, possibly historic, and it leads to my prediction that this team will get no-hit before the year’s out, maybe twice. They have already flirted with no-nos —…

  2. R.A. Dickey surrenders grand slam as struggles continue

    May 4, 2013, 4:00 PM EDT

    Blue Jays starter R.A. Dickey appeared to be getting back on track having logged quality starts in three out of his last four appearances entering this afternoon’s match against the offensively-impotent Mariners. Over six innings today, though, the right-hander allowed three home runs, including a first inning lead-off home run to Michael Saunders (his first…

  3. King Felix spins another beaut

    May 4, 2013, 11:00 AM EDT

    Seattle Mariners v Toronto Blue Jays

    Clay Buchholz is, without question, the early leader for the Cy Young Award. But there are a lot of good pitchers in the AL who stand to take the lead if Buchholz falters. One of ‘em is a usual suspect: Felix Hernandez. And last night he was his typical dominant self. Hernandez threw eight shutout innings…

    Mets Marlins Baseball

    Mets 7, Marlins 6:  Jordany Valdespin hit a pinch-hit three run homer in the sixth to put the Mets up to stay, breaking their six game losing streak. But Terry Collins is on the hot seat! No he isn’t! Yes he is! She’s my daughter! [slap] My sister! [slap!] My daughter … Nationals 2, Braves 0: The Nats finally…

  5. Lance Lynn opens 5-0 for second straight season

    May 1, 2013, 6:10 PM EDT

    Lance Lynn

    Cardinals right-hander Lance Lynn beat the Reds on Wednesday to become the NL’s first five-game winner this year. In so doing, he started a second straight season 5-0. The 25-year-old Lynn is the fifth pitcher in 2000 to start back-to-back seasons 5-0. Pedro Martinez actually did it three straight years: Martinez: 5-0 in 2000, 6-0…

    Casper Wells is on the move again, as the White Sox have acquired him from the Athletics for cash considerations. Wells is now with his fourth organization in the past month. His journey began when the Blue Jays claimed him off waivers from the Mariners after he lost out to Jason Bay for a roster…

    Michael Saunders Getty

    Mariners outfielder Michael Saunders is back from the disabled list after missing the past two-and-a-half weeks with a sprained right shoulder. Saunders wasn’t quite ready to rejoin Seattle’s lineup when first eligible, but is expected to draw most of the starts in center field with Franklin Gutierrez out. Prior to injuring his shoulder Saunders started…

    Apr 29, 2013, 5:40 AM EDT

    Russell Martin

    Pirates 9, Cardinals 0: Two homers for Russell Martin and a strong start from Jeff Locke. The Pirates — the Pittsburgh Pirates — are in first place in the National League Central. This goes with the Royals being in first place in the AL Central. I predicted each of these teams would be better this…

  12. For first time ever, Jason Bay is a leadoff man

    Apr 26, 2013, 6:29 PM EDT

    Jason Bay

    Facing a lefty in Anaheim’s C.J. Wilson on Friday, the Mariners have Jason Bay leading off for the first time in his career. With Franklin Gutierrez sidelined, Endy Chavez had been leading off for the Mariners of late, but he’s only an option there against righties. Bay, who is hitting .220 overall, is 4-for-14 with…

  13. Michael Morse struggling since returning from finger injury

    Apr 26, 2013, 12:46 PM EDT

    Michael Morse

    Michael Morse got off to a huge start for the Mariners, hitting .293 with six homers in his first 10 games, but then he fractured his right pinkie finger and has struggled since returning. Morse sat out just four days with the injury, but is 6-for-37 (.162) with zero homers and 12 strikeouts in nine…

    Apr 24, 2013, 1:20 PM EDT

    brendan ryan getty

    Brendan Ryan is a great defensive shortstop, but he’s hitting .143 this season after hitting .194 last year and the Mariners have decided to bench him. Greg Johns of MLB.com reports that Robert Andino will take over as the starting shortstop, with Ryan shifting into a utility man role. Of course, Andino is hitting just…

  17. Nick Tepesch exits game after taking liner to wrist

    Apr 20, 2013, 8:44 PM EDT

    Texas Rangers v Seattle Mariners

    Nick Tepesch left in the second inning of tonight’s game against the Mariners after taking a Jesus Montero liner off of his right wrist.

Diamondbacks 6, Yankees 2: Frankie Cervelli hit a homer to tie it in the ninth. He also had two — not one, but two — catcher’s interference calls.…

  19. So this is how the Mariners-Tigers game ended

    Apr 18, 2013, 9:22 AM EDT

    Screen Shot 2013-04-18 at 7.08.42 AM

    It went into the wee, wee hours. There were 40 strikeouts between the two teams. And then it all ended with the Tigers relying on their bullpen and the Mariners relying upon the foot speed of Justin Smoak. Not exactly a strength against strength situation. The game-ending play: Smoak on first, Dustin Ackley at the…

  20. And That Happened: Wednesday’s scores and highlights

    Apr 18, 2013, 5:55 AM EDT

    Jay Bruce

    Reds 1, Phillies 0: CONTINUED FROM TUESDAY NIGHT: Nine minutes, a quick score and then the whole thing was over. About as good a night as you coulda hoped for when you were 17, but for the Phillies this had to be disappointing. Reds 11, Phillies 2: Well, maybe not as disappointing as this. The…

  21. Play of the Day: Kelly Shoppach shows them worms he means business

    Apr 17, 2013, 9:50 AM EDT

    Kelly Shoppach

    Words sort of fail here. Let’s just say that, at the end of the year, Andy Dirks will have a stolen base in his stat line for which he probably owes Kelly Shoppach an assist. Go here to see why. Nice throw, Kelly.

  22. Mariners place reliever Stephen Pryor on disabled list with torn lat muscle

    Stephen Pryor Getty

    The Mariners’ bullpen will be without a key cog for the near future, as Stephen Pryor was placed on the 15-day disabled list this evening with a tear in the latissimus dorsi muscle behind his right shoulder. According to Greg Johns of MLB.com, the tear was found by Mariners medical director Edward Khalfayan after Pryor…

  23. And That Happened: Sunday’s scores and highlights

    Apr 15, 2013, 5:55 AM EDT

    Detroit Tigers v Oakland Athletics

    Tigers 10, Athletics 1: Austin Jackson was 4 for 6 with three RBI. Prince Fielder is now hitting .429/.527/.833. Once this team gets its bullpen figured out, man, watch out. Diamondbacks 1, Dodgers 0: When Nick Swisher hit a walkoff homer single in a 1-0 game the other day I thought to myself, “man, you don’t…
