What to Make of Jean Segura

Tue, 28 Feb 2017 01:15:00 +0000

About a week ago (I know – I’m slow), Bob Dutton of the News Tribune had a great article on Jean Segura and his strange path to both a breakout 2016 campaign and then to the M’s in perhaps the most critical trade in recent memory. You know the statistical story – a solid rookie […]

Cactus League Game 3: Let’s See Motter

Mon, 27 Feb 2017 18:30:33 +0000

M’s Versus Royals Yovani Gallardo v. Jason Vargas, 11:10pm. Radio Only. Note the earlier start time. Yesterday, Shawn O’Malley got to make his case for the utility role, and today the M’s will get a look at newly-acquired UTIL, Taylor Motter. Both were drafted by the Rays, and both have a lot of experience in […]

Cactus League Game 2: Position Battle edition

Sun, 26 Feb 2017 19:03:48 +0000

Chris Heston v. Zach Lee, 12:10pm Yesterday’s game featured a line-up that looked pretty much like opening day’s. That’s cool and all, but it doesn’t tell us a whole lot. Or rather, the utility of seeing Segura hit in front of Cano is balanced by injury concerns. None of those guys are fighting for a […]

Cactus League Game 1: It Begins

Sat, 25 Feb 2017 17:00:27 +0000

I’m still not in regular season shape, so some articles on Segura and others will have to wait, but…seriously, there’s a Mariner game on today. How do I do this again? Oh yeah, that’s right: M’s “at” Padres Ariel Miranda vs. Paul Clemens, 12:10pm It’s not just the M’s, but there’s something comfortable about kicking […]

2017 Projections Time

Thu, 16 Feb 2017 01:30:30 +0000

Sorry for the posting drought; I’d say it won’t happen again, but you know by now that I can’t promise that. It’s that quiet-before-the-storm portion of the off-season, where we get furtive glimpses of pitchers stretching, or dudes in t-shirts swinging bats. The big moves have mostly all happened now (though there are some surprisingly […]

Will There Be Enough for Martin/Dyson to Do?

Mon, 16 Jan 2017 22:47:57 +0000

Happy Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day, everyone. So, with the trade of Mallex Smith, the M’s are back down to 2 or 3 CFs, with Mitch Haniger – a competent CF himself – playing RF. There’s nothing wrong with defense first OFs, and in general, I subscribe to the idea that a run saved […]

This Team…Just..hold on :catches breath: M’s Acquire Drew Smyly for Mallex Smith+Prospects

Wed, 11 Jan 2017 23:23:09 +0000

For the second time in a week, I hit publish on one trade recap and news of another trade hits twitter. If you’ll remember to, oh, a half hour ago or so, I said that the M’s simply couldn’t keep ALL of Mallex Smith, Leonys Martin and Jarrod Dyson – one or two of them […]

Mariners Swap Luiz Gohara for Mallex Smith/Shae Simmons

Wed, 11 Jan 2017 21:42:28 +0000

The M’s face an uncertain future thanks to an aging core and an ace starter that looked much more common than royal in 2016. That’s led many fans to encourage the M’s to stop *tweaking* the roster and actually overhaul it by bringing in talent, even if that makes them weaker in 2018 and beyond. […]

Aaaaaand the M’s Also Traded Nate Karns for Jarrod Dyson

Sat, 07 Jan 2017 01:30:46 +0000

After creating an opening for a platoon OF, the M’s filled that position quickly by trading for ex-Royals CF Jarrod Dyson. Dyson’s been one of the league’s best defenders, but he’s not much of a hitter, as he’s got both very little power and serious platoon problems that have limited him to part-time duty in […]

Mariners Swap Seth Smith for SP Yovani Gallardo

Fri, 06 Jan 2017 23:46:11 +0000

As we talked about last time, the M’s looked to be a team with an exceptionally wide range of possible outcomes in 2017. Many of the players they’re counting on are old, volatile, or untested. There are a couple of ways to deal with this: the club could either leverage their prospects and even young […]
