"He’s a special player. Always overshadowed by the heralded Dustin Ackley, Seager quietly climbed his way up to the top, impressing everyone with his hitting, defense, and poise. The All-Star title suits him well."
The Mariners rout the Tigers 8-1, winning the series and reclaiming the 2nd Wild Card spot by half a game! Next up is Philadelphia! Go M’s!

Very true. Literally everyone today was wearing Seahawks gear for a preseason game. I understand that they’re Super Bowl champs and right now Seattle is very much a football city, but you gotta give the M’s credit where credit is deserved. This is the most exciting Mariners baseball has been arguably since 2007, and people are busy worrying about who’s gonna be the backup QB for the Hawks rather than real, tangible games. Again, sorry for the rant.
I hate how Seattle cares more about a meaningless Seahawks preseason game than the Mariners actually playing for something and getting a wildcard spot. Like, we get it, the Seahawks have been historically good and the M’s historically bad for awhile, but it’s still baseball season and there’s no reason why the Hawks game should get five minutes of coverage with interviews and analysis on the nightly news while the Mariners get thirty seconds of recap. Ugh.
All these players getting injured across the league and I’m over here with my rabbit foot, four leaf clover, and horseshoe prayin that no one on our team gets hurt.
Mariners beat the Tigers 7-2 with the M’s lineup hitting for the cycle and Paxton throwing six strong innings! The M’s now have sole possession of the 2nd Wild Card spot with a .5 game lead!

All hail the King
Felix Hernandez has been unstoppable in 2014:
.191 Opponent’s BA
Your AL All Star Game starting pitcher, and the clear frontrunner for the Cy Young, if not AL MVP. No pitcher in the American League has come close to the King’s dominance, and Felix now attempts to guide the Mariners to a Wild Card berth and his first ever postseason run.
Just watch out for the nasty change up.
The M’s SWEEP the Blue Jays thanks to a 2-run bomb by Kendrys and shutdown pitching by Kuma and the bullpen, winning 2-0! Still tied for the second Wild Card and now 10 games over .500!
When people say that the AL East is the powerhouse of the American League and the West can’t compete
The Mariners just can’t seem to stop winning, beating the Blue Jays again by a score of 6-3! Now tied for the second Wild Card!
