"The mountain man’s a hard guy to read. I don’t know. I really don’t. You’ll probably have to ask him that. Hell, he looks at me sometimes, I think he’s looking right through me, so I just don’t know. Other times, he says, smell my beard, skip. I’m like, I don’t think so."
— Lloyd McClendon on Dustin Ackley’s confidence level


The Mariners sweep the Red Sox at Fenway for the first time EVER in franchise history! Final score: 8-6, and the M’s now have as many wins as they did all of last year!

Comeback game of the year? The Mariners score 5 runs in the top of the 9th with two outs to beat the Red Sox 5-3! What an incredible win!

"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."

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.



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:

1.95 ERA

194 K’s

0.860 WHIP

180 IP

.191 Opponent’s BA

6.3 WAR

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!
