  1. Red Sox score six in ninth to beat Mariners 8-7

    Aug 2, 2013, 12:50 AM EST

    Jonny Gomes

    The Red Sox sent 10 men to the plate in a six-run ninth to overcome a terrific effort from Felix Hernandez and defeat the Mariners 8-7 on Thursday, completing a three-game sweep at Fenway Park. According to the win expectancy data at Fangraphs, the Red Sox entered the ninth with exactly a one percent chance…

  2. Play of the Day: Michael Saunders nailed himself a runner

    Video camera

    The Mariners lost, partially because Jonny Gomes had his own nice play in the outfield last night, turning an unassisted double play.  But this throw from Michael Saunders to end the 14th inning is pretty to watch. I’ve replayed it 10 times already.  There’s nothing like a perfect throw:

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

    Aug 1, 2013, 7:05 AM EST

    Chicago White Sox v Cleveland Indians

    Indians 6, White Sox 5: Living with a Tigers fan is kinda hard sometimes. Like, when you have the Indians-White Sox game on the TV, she wants the Indians to lose, the White Sox blow a two-run lead in the ninth and then Carlos Santana hits a walkoff homer in extras. It’s even more complicated…

  4. Winners and losers at the trade deadline

    Jul 31, 2013, 5:50 PM EST

    Jake Peavy

    Given how disappointing this afternoon’s trade deadline proved to be, it’s only fair that the annual winners and losers column is a little lopsided. Let’s get right to it: Winners Red Sox: I didn’t like the idea of Boston giving up top prospects for Jake Peavy because I just didn’t see him being a big…

  5. Pirates, Orioles likely to pass on Justin Morneau

    Jul 31, 2013, 1:51 PM EST

    Justin Morneau

    It sure sounds like Justin Morneau is more likely to be dealt in August than before Wednesday’s deadline. According to John Perotto of the Beaver County Times, the Pirates have “next-to-zero” interest in Morneau as they weigh an upgrade at first base or in right field. Dan Connolly of the Baltimore Sun is among those…

  6. Orioles “actively pursuing” Mike Morse and Oliver Perez

    Jul 31, 2013, 1:03 PM EST

    The O’s could use a DH/corner bat and the Mariners have one. So this would make sense: Orioles are actively pursuing both Mike Morse and Oliver Perez of the #Mariners today, accdg to a source. Would like a combo deal. — Dan Connolly (@danconnollysun) July 31, 2013   As for Perez, the Orioles’ greatest strength…

  7. Michael Morse is “very available”

    Jul 30, 2013, 6:31 PM EST

    morse getty

    Michael Morse just returned from a badly-strained right quadriceps muscle and he’s batting just .251 with a .313 on-base percentage in 56 games played this season. But he has good power and a market could develop for him at some point between now and Wednesday’s 4 p.m. ET trade deadline. According to Joel Sherman of…

  8. Mariners designate Jason Bay for assignment

    Jul 29, 2013, 2:14 PM EST

    Jason Bay

    In preparation for Michael Morse‘s expected return from the disabled list tomorrow the Mariners designated Jason Bay for assignment. Bay signed a one-year, $1 million deal with the Mariners after being released by the Mets and showed good power with 11 homers in 206 at-bats, but he also hit just .204 with a .691 OPS…

    Jul 29, 2013, 1:18 PM EST

    Braves 5, Cardinals 2: That was somewhat unexpected. A less-than-dominant Braves team sweeps the best team in the National League. The key was Kris Medlen allowing two runs on eight hits. The key all series was good starting pitching from the Braves. So of course the big talking point everyone has is how Jason Heyward…

  11. Mariners sign catcher Humberto Quintero

    Jul 26, 2013, 8:40 PM EST

    Geoff Baker of the Seattle Times reports that the Mariners have signed veteran catcher Humberto Quintero to provide depth behind the plate in the wake of Mike Zunino‘s hamate bone surgery. Quintero was designated for assignment by the Phillies on Wednesday and opted to become a free agent after passing through waivers unclaimed. The 33-year-old…

  12. Mike Zunino out six weeks with fractured hamate bone

    Jul 26, 2013, 5:55 PM EST

    Mike Zunino exited last night’s game after taking a foul ball off his left hand and the Mariners catcher has been diagnosed with a fractured hamate bone.

  13. Michael Morse almost ready to rejoin the Mariners

    Jul 26, 2013, 10:15 AM EST

    Michael Morse

    Michael Morse has been out since May with a strained quadriceps, but the Mariners outfielder is rehabbing in the minors and just about ready to come off the disabled list. Interim manager Robby Thompson described Morse as “champing at the bit” to return and Greg Johns of MLB.com reports that Morse could be back in…

  14. Lance Berkman’s knee problems have him thinking about retirement

    Jul 25, 2013, 9:40 PM EST

    Lance Berkman

    Lance Berkman is currently on the disabled list with left hip inflammation, but his surgically-repaired right knee is the bigger issue right now. In fact, he tells Evan Grant of the Dallas Morning News that he has considered shutting it down for the rest of the season or even retiring if he doesn’t make progress…

  15. Hunter Pence, Alex Rios and Kendrys Morales among Rangers’ trade deadline targets

    Via Jeff Wilson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram: The Rangers, facing the possibility that right-fielder Nelson Cruz could be suspended and without much production from their other outfielders, have set their sights on Chicago White Sox outfielder Alex Rios, San Francisco right fielder Hunter Pence and Seattle designated hitter Kendrys Morales to fill a need…

  16. Ike Davis plans to bunt more often

    Jul 24, 2013, 1:39 AM EST

    Ike Davis, Marvin Hudson

    Mets first baseman Ike Davis attempted to bunt for a base hit in the bottom of the second inning with one out and the bases empty and his team down 1-0. He was facing an infield shift, so his thought was to drop a bunt down the third base line for an easy infield single,…

  17. And That Happened: Monday’s scores and highlights

    Jul 23, 2013, 6:56 AM EST

    Tampa Bay Rays v Boston Red Sox

    Rays 3, Red Sox 0: Matt Moore throws his first career shutout and it came in the first game of what, so far this year, is the Rays biggest series. Two hits allowed, one walk four strikeouts as the Rays cut a game off the Sox’ division lead, now sitting a half game back. Reds…

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

    Jul 22, 2013, 5:12 AM EST

    Philadelphia Phillies v New York Mets

    Mets 5, Phillies 0: It’s getting close to the time for us to break out all of that “we are all witnesses” kind of hyperbole for Matt Harvey. Not that it’s really hyperbole. He’s simply toying with hitters at this point, throwing ungodly stuff in just about every count. Seven innings, three hits, ten strikeouts,…

  19. Erik Bedard allows no hits in 6.1 innings, loses anyway

    Jul 20, 2013, 10:15 PM EST

    Seattle Mariners v Houston Astros

    Astros lefty Erik Bedard brought a no-hitter into the seventh inning, but ran into a bit of trouble and a high pitch count. After Bedard walked Justin Smoak with one out (Bedard’s fifth walk of the evening), manager Bo Porter wasn’t willing to let him go beyond 111 pitches, replacing him with Jose Cisnero. Cisnero…

    Jul 20, 2013, 8:00 AM EST

    Seattle Mariners v Houston Astros

    After two horrible days without any baseball and two sub-optimal days without baseball that counted we’re finally back to normal. Fifteen games last night and games every single day until the end of October at the very least. Ahhhhh. What the heck got into the water in Houston? Brandon Barnes went 5 for 5 and…

  21. All-Star roster fun: McCann, Melancon, Romo, Balfour, Holland, Tillman added

    Jul 14, 2013, 7:15 PM EST

    Brian McCann AP

    The weekend preceding the All-Star Game festivities is always fun because the list of actual All-Stars expands by about ten players as injured players step down and would-be snubs finally get their call. Today, American League Sunday starters Bartolo Colon of the Athletics, Hisashi Iwakuma of the Mariners, and Justin Verlander of the Tigers were…

    As first reported by beat writer Tom Gage of the Detroit News, the Tigers have reached agreement on a minor league contract with right-handed pitcher Jeremy Bonderman. The 30-year-old former first-round pick has been assigned to Triple-A Toledo, where he will function as organizational depth. Bonderman joined the Mariners’ starting rotation on June 2 and pitched…

  24. Raul Ibanez is chasing history at 41 years old

    Jul 13, 2013, 10:02 AM EST

    Raul Ibanez Getty

    Raul Ibanez‘s incredible season continued last night against the Angels, as he went 3-for-4 with two home runs, a double, and three RBI as part of an 8-3 win. Ibanez, who turned 41 last month, now has 24 home runs through just 71 games this season. And the power surge is putting him in some…

  25. Erasmo Ramirez called up to join Mariners rotation

    Jul 11, 2013, 2:14 PM EST

    Erasmo Ramirez

    When the Mariners designated Jeremy Bonderman for assignment earlier this week the assumption was they’d add Erasmo Ramirez to the rotation as his replacement and sure enough they made the move official today. Ramirez is coming up from Triple-A to start this afternoon against the Red Sox, returning to the majors for the first time…
