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

Good morning everyone! We have two Mariner-less days ahead of us here but here are some links to get you through that first morning:


  • Blake Beavan has rather quietly begun his rehab assignment.
  • The Mariners officially released John Buck.
  • Jack Zdurencik recently went on record saying he has no intention of trading M's top prospect D.J. Peterson.
  • Here's a link to the latest U.S.S. Mariner podcast episode.
  • If you're wondering how the Futures Game went down (a game which featured two M's prospects) here's a quick summary.
  • Chris Cotillo of MLB Daily Dish breaks down the latest trade buzz and talks about what the Mariners might do.
  • A lot of drama is being stirred up between the Astros and No. 1 overall pick Brady Aiken.
  • Crawfish Boxes wonders what would have happened if the Asteos had signed Shin-Soo Choo and Masahiro Tanaka.
  • John Sickels of Minor League Ball updates his mid-season list of the 75 top prospects in baseball.
  • Grant Brisbee gives nine ways the home run derby can be improved (of course not completely seriously).
  • Jeff Sullivan of Fangraphs talks about the least accurate called balls so far this year.
  • Tony Blengino of Fangraphs tells the story of Alfredo Simon, the unlikely All-Star that was.
  • The MLB has announced that Billy Bean (probably not the one you're thinking of) will be the Ambassador For Inclusion for baseball. If you haven't heard this yet I recommend reading about this interesting development.
  • I don't know if you saw Jeff Samardzija's All-Star introduction but man...poor guy.
