The Mariners Could Set An Undesirable Record This Season

The Mariners Could Set An Undesirable Record This Season

Yesterday the Mariners suffered yet another blowout loss, this time at the hands of the Angels. Yusei Kikuchi was shelled for the third straight start and was pulled in the fourth inning. His replacement was Tayler Scott, making his major league debut. There were a couple notable things about Scott’s appearance. As many reporters noted, Scott became the first South African player to pitch in the major leagues. What went mostly unnoticed was the fact that Scott was the 33rd…

The Mariners Begin Another Fire Sale as the MLB Draft Kicks Off

The Mariners Begin Another Fire Sale as the MLB Draft Kicks Off

The Mariners entered the 2019 season with an unusual group of players. After an offseason that involved trading most of the team’s top players from 2018 in an effort to rebuild for the future, it would make sense if the Mariners gave playing time to young players this year. But the Mariners didn’t have many prospects ready to play in the major leagues yet. Entering the 2019 season, the Mariners’ roster consisted primarily of veterans who would be trying to…

The Ship is Sinking

The Ship is Sinking

Well, it was fun while it lasted. On Friday, the Mariners suffered a demoralizing 14-1 loss to the Red Sox in Boston, falling below .500 for the first time this season. The first few weeks were a lot of fun, but we all knew it wasn’t going to last. The offense couldn’t be the best in the majors all season, and a below-average pitching staff wouldn’t cut it. A weak slate of opponents to start the season also made the…

EVERYTHING WRONG WITH SUPER BOWL LIII

EVERYTHING WRONG WITH SUPER BOWL LIII

On February 3rd, 2019, Super Bowl LIII came and went, and that’s about it. This year’s Super Bowl was probably the most anticlimactic finale to a season that the NFL could have offered, and as one of the 100 million or so viewers that were confined to their seats for three hours on Sunday afternoon watching that mess, I was not impressed. This was not the Super Bowl we all signed up for (except if you come from that one…
