Yeah, it really just appears to be the same issues as the last several years, except now the pitching isn't nearly as good after 1 and 2. Hitting is terrible, and now it seems defense is a problem.

Same old Mariners. Getting beat at home to the Astros says it all.

Starting pitching goes from our strength in 2011 to our weakness now. Couldn't hit a home run to save the world that year, now that's all we have--old slow guys that can bash the ball and young kids who cannot hit anything.

Here we are not half way through April and there are already Ms fans saying "Wait till next year."

I've heard that so long I tend to ignore them completely. As much as I dislike LymonHawks team at least they go to the playoffs now and then.

I stopped following the M's after I realized they don't care about building a team that will contend. Baseball season in the PNW has become a months long joke with no punch line. It's just not worth my time or energy to support them at this point. REAL changes need to be made, from the top to the bottom. Until that happens, all my M's hats will remain hanging on the wall.

The Ms obviously have many problems. The "new normal" attendances in the 10k level reflects the unhappiness. Granted Houston is not a team I would pay to see, but it was the opening series.

What I see as a bigger problem is management does not seem to get it. Some examples and a bit of a rant:

Fans pay to see Home Runs or a lot of hits. Pitchers duels are boring except to a purist. In the draft much of the capital was in getting pitching which is high risk .

I question our scouting and coaching. We miss a lot in the draft , on trades and then trade players that go on to do well elsewhere. The "big 3 " position players look worse than when they came up. Who is screwing these guys up..? I see it as the coaches job to help the players improve and not regress. If they don't listen send them down or move them

They need some of the PC competition. When I see players coming into spring training fat, lacking muscle, I question it. Someone needs to light a fire under some posteriors. Can't hit or field? Next! ...

It is common to hear in baseball that its not the same as football... It takes more time. I disagree when the players also played in college. During one of Tony LaRussa 's animal events years ago, I asked him about player expectation out of the draft (when would he expect a player to be ready) he told me college players 1-2 years and out of High School 5 years. He said if they didn't make it to the majors and produce by then they probably never would.

Lost 2 of 3 to the Astros...........let that sink in Ms fans..........2 out of 3 at home to the FRAKIN' ASTROS!!!!!!! Jesus.


I'm not at all a fan of Mahler, but he's been saying (when I'm up there and hear him) for the last several years that Armstrong is the constant in all this losing and that he must go. I think he's correct cuz the people he's hired to run this orginization have failed consistently for far too long now.

Well the wife and I watched about 80 games last year, and we had the team down to an acronym:

Me: you want to watch some SMB?

Her: is there nothing else on?



The M and B are easy to figure out. The S doesn't stand for sucky...

Looks like another year of SMB to me!

Looks like I might have been way too generous on predicting 84 wins, DOH! Yes its a small sample size but I can see this season snowballing the wrong way real fast. The core of this team Montero, Smoak, Ackley are the epitone of suck right now. I think the above core that I mentioned needs a wake up call, I wouldnt hesitate to send Ackley and Montero down, and bring Zanino and screw his FA clock. The worst thing for this team is that they are boring yet again, and outside of opening day and when Felix pitched they cant dray flys to attend the game.

The pitch that broke the finger was inside but since he swung at it I was willing to give the pitcher the benefit of doubt that he probably wasn't trying to hit him. Until he went right back with the up and in crap and plunked him in the same at bat.

I have a feeling morse may have been more upset at the pitcher if his hand wasn't hurting.

Texas wanted to play the role of the bully and pick on and intimidate the weaker team, and it worked.

Just don't fall too far below .500 and hope will remain (no more than 7+ games under). For now, I will continue to browse box scores. They get on a streak, I'll start to watch again. They fall deeper into a slide, I will cut off anything M's related the remainder of the year.

A lot of whining over a 5-7 start. Probably going to be a lot of 5 win stretches over 12 games this season. It hasn't been a great start (although Morse, Morales and Iwakuma have had strong beginnings)... but its early folks. Let's give it a month. Bad pitching and poor hitting by a lot of people. If its mid may and no improvemenstart the "next year" posts

Well last year it was just poor hitting, the pitching was the strength, now other then Felix it appears there is a few holes there also. Typically early on pitching is ahead of the hitters till things begin to warm up.

In case anyone was wondering what happened to him, Kawasaki got called up from the Blue Jays AAA team when Reyes went down. He had an RBI in his first plate appearance.

I was almost 100% sure he would never play in MLB again.

By far some of the dumber opinions I've heard. What are you going to do... not pay a perennial cy-young contender who's only 27 and by all means took a hometown pay cut?

Harang is looking pretty damn goo in his first start. Especially good considering it is against the offensive juggernaut that is the Detroit Tigers.

And, immediately after hitting submit, Harang allows a 2-run bomb to Cabrerra.

Well, it became pretty ugly in the 8th when two runs were walked in.

2 walked in after the ump blew a call on a 3rd strike.. Again. This has happened to the mariners probably 4-5 games in a row now.

Yeah it happens to every team but this crap gets old when it happens every day. They blow a call then the other team scores.

Felix is probably going to play about 30 games.
He's already 1-2 and the only game I saw, was against Texas where he was missing the zone, and Jesus was really lazy covering the ball in the ground.

The reason why I said that the contract extension was a mistake because he's only gonna contribute 30-35 games. 7 years for 175 million? That's crazy for a team that has no hitters. The reason why FA don't come to Seattle is because Seattle is not a intriguing place for FA. No hitters only 2 good Pitchers. If I was the GM, I would had traded Felix for 1 good pitching prospect and 2 good hitters. People would overtrade for Felix, look at Dodgers or Toronto. Somebody would had traded us for Felix, but with this contract, he won't get traded at all.

Guti is still looking terrible and injury prone.
Ackley? Becoming more of a Garbage.
Smoak part of the Cliff Lee trade? Garbage.
Seager? Who was very good for the Mariners this season? Nope garbage this year.
Jesús? Part of the Pineda trade? Yes Mariner fans believe they won the trade, but Jesus is terrible. We all seen what Pineda is capable of. When Pineda comes back June, this was a trade that the NY won.


Seattle is going to look bad for the next 8 years.

He's already 1-2 and the only game I saw, was against Texas where he was missing the zone, and Jesus was really lazy covering the ball in the ground.

The reason why I said that the contract extension was a mistake because he's only gonna contribute 30-35 games. 7 years for 175 million? That's crazy for a team that has no hitters. The reason why FA don't come to Seattle is because Seattle is not a intriguing place for FA. No hitters only 2 good Pitchers. If I was the GM, I would had traded Felix for 1 good pitching prospect and 2 good hitters. People would overtrade for Felix, look at Dodgers or Toronto. Somebody would had traded us for Felix, but with this contract, he won't get traded at all.

Guti is still looking terrible and injury prone.
Ackley? Becoming more of a Garbage.
Smoak part of the Cliff Lee trade? Garbage.
Seager? Who was very good for the Mariners this season? Nope garbage this year.
Jesús? Part of the Pineda trade? Yes Mariner fans believe they won the trade, but Jesus is terrible. We all seen what Pineda is capable of. When Pineda comes back June, this was a trade that the NY won.


Seattle is going to look bad for the next 8 years.


Wow. You should be a GM, dude.

This post contains a lot of dumb. You even called Jesus garbage, which is sure to offend the religious types.

Yeah, he was amazing the second half of last year and finished with only about a 3.00 ERA. I'm really glad we re-signed him for 2 years but wish it was longer. MAYBE we'll be a competitor 2 years from now and he'll want to re-sign again.

Bah, if you can't strike out 27 batters in a row to secure the 1-0 win, you don't deserve the starting job. Mariners have this all figured out!
