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

Links!

  • Jeff and Matthew of U.S.S. Mariner have a new podcast out. Check it out here.
  • James Jones is given some love in Fangraphs' latest "Prospect Watch."
  • Jason Churchill of Prospect Insider also talks about Jones being called up and tells people what to expect from him this time around.
  • Tyler Carmont of Prospect Insider takes a look back at the Erik Bedard trade now that six years have since passed.
  • ESPN's Mark Simon discusses Collin McHugh's success this year with the Astros.
  • The Oakland Athletics could seek help for their rotation via trade.
  • Jeff Sullivan of Fangraphs looks for a reason to worry about Mike Trout (and finds one!)
  • New York City honored future-Hall-of-Fame closer Mariano Rivera by naming a street after him just outside of Yankee Stadium.
  • The Miami Marlins are somehow over .500 right now, and Nick Bond wonders if they can contend for a playoff spot this year.
  • Beyond the Box Score also discusses the Marlins' success and how they've done it.
  • In The Hardball Times' latest editions of "10 Lessons I Have Learned", Michael Lichtman looks at defensive statistics while Dave Cameron writes about baseball economy. If you haven't been looking at these, you really should be. Great reads.
  • Missed this one last time, but Jayson Stark of ESPN reviews the weird happenings in the month of April for the MLB
  • Troy Tulowitzki is having quite the season so far, and when you're that good, you can apparently get away with anything.
  • First, it was squirrels. Now, it's ducks that are invading baseball fields.
  • This guy must have had this one all planned out (from the same game as the link above).

Question of the day: How does the success of players/teams the Mariners have lost embarrassingly to (Collin McHugh, Miami Marlins, etc) affect how you view the M's season so far as a whole?
