We start by putting our Bud Light Spotlight with a New Year’s Day cliché: Out with the old. In with the new.
As a person, I liked Nick Holt. But his results were the worst in school history.
Dissenters, including myself, thought he’d get...

The Mariners will need to wait another day to attempt to end their six-game skid. Mother Nature delivered the knockout blow on Saturday, as an afternoon game with the Indians was halted by rain in the bottom of the first inning.
The game will be made up...

On a night Felix Hernandez and Francisco Liriano engaged in a pitcher's duel for much of the evening, a pair of first-inning walks by the Mariners ace wound up being the difference in a 2-1 loss to Minnesota at Safeco Field.
The Twins snapped a nine-game...

It's tough to put together a seven-game stretch of pitching that could be any better than what the Mariners starters have done since the last game at Baltimore on May 12.
In the last seven outings going into Saturday night's contest, Seattle starters had...

Felix Hernandez sees something happening with the Mariners, something he didn't see a year ago in his Cy Young season.

Game one is in the books with Indiana State upsetting Illinois St. 5-2. Shortly afterwards the rains came and it doesn’t look like Wichita St. will start their game with Evansville until 3:00pm or so. Last year in Wichita we had four hours of rain...

It's a testament to how well the Mariners have played over the last few weeks that the "one of those days" game they endured on Sunday doesn't seem to be all that common anymore.

As the Mariners continue to improve, they're showing more and more that the big things often come from the little things.

Before Sunday's game, Mariners manager Eric Wedge spoke of Miguel Olivo's strength of personality as a team leader. He didn't even mention his catcher's hot bat.
But it was the latter that once again spoke the loudest in the series finale against the...

Carlos Peguero homered and tripled starting in place of Ichiro Suzuki in right field, and the Seattle Mariners beat the Detroit Tigers 3-2 on Friday night.
The struggling Suzuki, who had played in 255 consecutive games, was given the night off. Peguero,...

When Mariners manager Eric Wedge decided to give Ichiro Suzuki a rare night off Friday, he surely didn't expect his right-field replacement to provide the fireworks in a 3-2 victory over the Tigers at Comerica Park.
