FINAL CHARTS, 2014 MARINERS SEASON

2014-10-05T22:28:10.627-07:00

Sigh, what a season it was. Here are the final versions of the charts I was keeping throughout this dandy of an 87-75 season. The pitching chart tracked each pitcher's number of pitches thrown, batters faced, and outs recorded. The end of the chart shows ratios for outs per 100 pitches, pitches per batter faced, and pitches per out recorded. The hitting chart tracked each hitter's number of



MARINERS CHARTS AT THE ALL-STAR BREAK

2014-07-16T19:37:09.046-07:00

I guess I've come up with an excuse to post something. Those following me on the Twitter have seen me post these charts about a half hour to an hour (that's the hope, anyway) after every Mariners game. One chart deals with the pitchers and keeps track of their pitch count, number of batters faced, and outs recorded. Mostly my impetus for the pitching chart when I first did it last year was to



MARINERS GAME-BY-GAME RUNS CHARTS

2014-10-05T22:31:43.056-07:00

I finally decided I should have a single place to put these before I end up with a bunch of them. I transferred the idea a bit from a similar element I put on the Canucks full-season charts I construct. On those charts, I show the Canucks' goals-assists-points numbers, but I had no direct reference to the magnitude of win or loss. Transferring that idea over to Mariners charts, I couldn't think



2013 MARINERS SCAVENGER HUNT

2013-05-25T10:45:06.956-07:00

So I saw this and thought a Mariners version absolutely had to be done. Wyatt Arndt and J. Bowman's Canucks-related version of the scavenger hunt had 48 items for 48 games. Can we list 162 items for 162 games before the season starts? I'll try. I'll take suggestions. I'll update this as I come up with more stuff.  I don't think this list will be static until we have the Opening Day roster.  



2012 RICK RIZZS LAZY/ANNOYING NICKNAME LIST

2012-04-06T09:45:19.557-07:00

The Mariners open up stateside tonight.  One thing I find unbearable about the Mariners' radio broadcasts are the nicknames that Rick Rizzs chooses for the players.  Usually he just adds a -y suffix, which is incredibly lazy and quite frankly I think it emasculates the players (a bit) rather than make for a playful nickname.  Basically I heard a radio broadcast and heard way too much of Miggy and



SOON...?

2012-02-17T16:15:28.900-08:00

This will be incredibly awesome if they pull this off, especially for folks in Kitsap County who take the Bremerton and Bainbridge ferries. All four major sports (plus futbol) will be within walking distance from the ferry terminal. Maybe that'll get some more Bremerton sailings. Anyway, yesterday was a day I didn't think would happen for a long time. They've still got a long way to go, but



BASEBALL FLYOVER 2012

2012-12-21T10:27:51.895-08:00

Going through referrer logs the past few years, it appears some of the most searched things on this site were the Google Earth screengrabs I did long ago of the 30 ballparks. Obviously, a bunch of them were outdated. Not to mention, some good folks out there have done 3D models of some of the ballparks. Go figure. Note on a couple of the ballparks: apparently there isn’t any updated imagery



CANUCK CHARTS

2014-10-05T22:37:10.383-07:00

I'm not sure when exactly I decided to do this. After every Canuck game, I have this Excel chart. I use the NHL.com event sheet and toss in all the goals, assists, and points for the players. When I'm going through every couple days and filling in a game at a time, it's not bad. When I dug back and did the 2006-07 season, it was a bit of a chore. I haven't brought myself to do the 2007-08



REFERRER LOG RESPONSE

2014-02-17T16:03:57.888-08:00

Something appeared in the referrer logs that I found different enough to warrant a response. Basically there are Bing and Google searches asking what happened to Steve Sandmeyer at KJR. As someone who has listened to KJR with a pretty good deal of regularity since the Kemp and Payton years -- and who's been listening pretty regularly in the last couple months -- here is what I was able to get



TWITTER

2011-12-24T23:57:57.901-08:00

I won't say I'm going to get back onto the horse with Sports and B's or anything. There's no way it'll be what it was. The most updated page on this blog over the past two years has been the Mariners' uniform number page, which I'll plan to update for as long as I can (the numbers are frozen from the final day of the 2011 season until Opening Day 2012, by the way). That said, I still feel I



GAME 102: WHITE SOX 6, MARINERS 5

2010-07-28T23:42:26.052-07:00

[box]What a weird game. Surely anyone who saw that Jason Vargas and Mark Buehrle were the starting pitchers in this game figured it'd all be over in around 2.5 hours, maybe less. As Mariner fans, we all saw the brilliant game where Jarrod Washburn and Buehrle had it all done in under two hours. That was awesome stuff. In this game, however, Vargas wasn't vintage Vargas and Buehrle wasn't



GAME 101: WHITE SOX 11, MARINERS 0

2010-07-27T21:05:25.697-07:00

[box]What I should really do is just say that Ryan Rowland-Smith pitched, so the Mariners lost. That'd be the shortest way possible in which I could write this game post and completely encompass everything that happened in the game. Really, it's all you need to know. Everything was stacked against the Mariners before this game even started. First off, they don't score runs. The White Sox



GAME 100: WHITE SOX 6, MARINERS 1

2010-07-26T21:55:04.127-07:00

[box]In short, the Mariners were Danktified again and Felix Hernandez couldn't get the low strike. All in all, that's far from a recipe that would result in a Mariner win. It got bad enough to where in the sixth inning, Felix basically put a pitch right down the pipe (and the EQC Tracer loved that pitch) and plate umpire Hunter Wendelstedt called it a ball. Rob Johnson started jawing with



GAME 99: MARINERS 4, RED SOX 2

2010-07-25T20:43:38.046-07:00

[box]For the third straight day, the Mariner offense appeared to like not doing much, and after 7 1/2 innings of play, they found themselves behind 2-1 and having pounded out all of five hits. Doug Fister was decent, though definitely not the most efficient we've seen him this season, and the bullpen up to that point had held it close. Then the bottom of the eighth inning came, craziness ensued



GAME 98: MARINERS 5, RED SOX 1

2010-07-25T14:40:26.108-07:00

[box][posted in full Sun ~2:41p]After nearly being held hitless on Friday night, the Mariners looked for half the game like they were going to do one better as Jon Lester took a perfect game into the sixth inning. Fortunately for the Mariners, David Pauley didn't pick that day to implode, and a bit of a break and an isolated slugging incident helped the Mariners get a win. I saw highlights on



GAME 97: RED SOX 2, MARINERS 1

2010-07-24T05:48:40.394-07:00

[box][partial post for now]I thought it was going to happen in Thursday's game, but ultimately the karmic balance within the game prevented it from happening. In this game, however, it happened -- the Mariners were undone by Bill Hall. That just hurts, considering the guy couldn't hit in his short tenure in Seattle, and all he did was strike out. Mariner hitters were completely oblivious to



GAME 96: RED SOX 8, MARINERS 6 (13 INNINGS)

2010-07-23T19:24:33.912-07:00

[box]This was a night where you'd wonder as a Mariner fan why the Red Sox can hit homers at Safeco Field (two of them by righthanders, one by Bill freakin' Hall) while the Mariners have a complete aversion to it. Well, I guess it's only relative since the Mariners never get to face Ryan Rowland-Smith at Safeco Field. Who would the Mariners have to face at Safeco Field to hit homers? There used



GAME 95: MARINERS 2, WHITE SOX 1 (11 INNINGS)

2010-07-22T19:22:28.378-07:00

[box]It was another banner night for the Mariner offense. Felix Hernandez pitched his heart out, yet the Mariner bats couldn't score a single run for him. At least the offsetting factor was that the White Sox didn't score any runs for a very stellar Gavin Floyd, who threw seven scoreless innings. Where did this game end? It ended in extra innings, where the Mariners have had their struggles



GAME 94: WHITE SOX 4, MARINERS 0

2010-07-20T23:40:16.977-07:00

[box]At least the Mariner pitchers didn't give up a bunch of runs in this game. However, they hit even less. Make it a goose egg for the Mariners one night after scoring only one run. The Mariners were Dankified, and the only thing keeping it from being a complete game for Danks was the fact that he'd crossed the century mark in his pitch count. -- all the pitching will be covered in the



GAME 93: WHITE SOX 6, MARINERS 1

2010-07-20T20:51:53.667-07:00

[box]The Mariners seem to have a handful or so of templates that could be used to describe nearly every one of their losses. Tonight, the hypothetical template had the Mariners staying close in the beginning, only to have the game slip away to the point where the last few innings of the game were completely irrelevant and the Mariners had no real chance of coming back to win. The Mariners this



GAME 92: MARINERS 2, ANGELS 1 (10 INNINGS)

2010-07-19T07:14:52.614-07:00

[box]There may be a lot more questions in the starting rotation with Cliff Lee no longer in the mix, Doug Fister not back into pre-injury form, and Ryan Rowland-Smith getting the hyphen kicked out of him. Jason Vargas, however, has been providing all the answers he can every five days. He went deep into this ballgame, which the Mariners needed since their Australian contingent was being roasted



GAME 91: ANGELS 7, MARINERS 6

2010-07-18T23:33:38.289-07:00

[box][actual post Sun ~9:23p]If nothing else, a Mariner fan can take a little bit of solace in that the team came back to tie the game after being down 6-1. -- the starting pitching will be covered at the end of the post-- Chris Seddon made his Mariner debut, taking over for Ryan Rowland-Smith with one out and runners on first and third in the fourth. He got a fielder's choice and a flyout to



GAME 90: ANGELS 3, MARINERS 2

2010-07-16T23:46:30.567-07:00

[box][partial post for now]Truthfully, once the Angels put three runs on the board, it didn't feel like a game, and I just felt resigned to the fact that the Mariners wouldn't be scoring many runs, if any, on this night. The one thing that gave them a glimmer of hope was Justin Smoak's first home run as a Mariner. That nice-looking swing cut the Angels' lead to 3-2, and the Mariners got no



GAME 89: ANGELS 8, MARINERS 3

2010-07-16T18:31:55.264-07:00

[box]The roster upheaval has continued for the Mariners as they brought up Chris Seddon from Tacoma and signed Jamey Wright as a free agent. To make room, the Mariners mercifully sent Sean White back to Tacoma and offered Chad Cordero the same fate, but he instead chose free agency. It's really too bad it didn't work out here for him. He'd come a long way to make it back to the Majors, and



GAME 88: YANKEES 8, MARINERS 2

2010-07-15T05:33:21.073-07:00

[box][actual post Wed 14 Jul ~11:05p]It was Lose Fly Balls in the Sun Day for the Mariners, which made for quite the Sunday afternoon. Oddly, the Yankees didn't seem to have any problems finding the fly balls in the sun, but part of the reason for that is CC Sabathia kept the amount of fly balls down. The Mariners hit into 14 groundouts and 11 flyouts, whereas the Yankees hit into eight
