Not, in fact, a Yankee pitcher - Brian Blanco

News and stories about the Seattle Mariners and other analysis from around the league.

  • Jeff and Matthew have a new installment of their weekly U.S.S. Mariner podcast.
  • Jeff also defends LLoyd's decision to move Dustin Ackley up to second in the order after saying he wasn't going to do so.
  • LL's very own Patrick Dubuque has an excellent piece up on The Hardball Times about fans and statistics. I can't really explain all of what it's about in just one sentence, but it's amazing. Look at it.
  • Mike Curto of The News Tribune wonders if Cole Gillespie should get a shot with the Mariners.
  • Jason Churchill of Prospect Insider looks at Mariners' minor league shortstop Ketel Marte, who has looked impressive early on.
  • Apparently the Yankees were forced to have infielder Dean Anna (who I didn't know existed until I was in New York about two weeks ago) pitch an inning. Fangraphs scouts Anna as a pitcher.
  • I guess it's the year for pitching injuries. Now it's Ivan Nova of the Yankees hitting the DL with a UCL tear.
  • Also, Scott Feldman of the Astros has hit the DL with right biceps tendinitis.
  • In case you missed it, the Brewers and Pirates got into a bit of a scuffle.
  • Jeff Sullivan at Fangraphs looks at when it is most appropriate to lay down a bunt.
  • Beyond the Box Score looks at how frequently runners score from first on a double.
  • Athletics Nation makes a case for sending down reliever Drew Pomeranz and turning him into a starter again.
  • Matt Harrison of the Rangers could come back from the DL to make his first start of the season against the Mariners.
  • The MLB is seriously considering making adjustments to the new transfer rule.
  • Mandatory humor link: when squirrels attack.
