Though they have the longest current playoff drought of all of the major sports in America, there are reasons to be optimistic that this year the Seattle Mariners will break their decades-long dry spell.
With the MLB trade deadline looming and the Seattle Mariners on the cusp of a playoff birth -- despite being in the midst of a "rebuilding" season -- here are 6 players they should consider unloading to stay the course and look towards long-term success.
Tom Murphy and Jacob Nottingham hit back-to-back home runs in the bottom of the third inning to start the scoring and give the Mariners a lead that they would never relinquish in a 5-0 win over the Texas Rangers tonight (May 27) at T-Mobile Park in Seattle.
The Seattle Mariners put up a three-spot in the 8th inning today (May 26) but it wasn't enough to overcome a six-run hole that they had dug themselves into in an effort to sweep the Oakland A's at Rickey Henderson Field for the first time since 2016
The Seattle Mariners batters were stymied once again tonight (May 17) mustering just 4 hits and a lone run at the hand of starting pitcher Casey Mize and the Detroit Tigers in the first of a three-game home series at T-Mobile Park in Seattle.
Seattle Mariners top prospect outfielder Jarred Kelenic (pronounced KELL-nick) bounced back from an 0 for 4 Major League debut on Thursday (May 13) night with a bang on Friday evening at T-Mobile Park leading the M's to a 7-3 victory over the visiting Cleveland Indians.
The Seattle Mariners took their first glimpse into a hopefully brighter future on Thursday (May 13) night when they opened a four-game series at T-Mobile Park in Seattle against the Cleveland Indians with the Major League debuts of top prospects Jarred Kelenic and Logan Gilbert.
Major League Baseball insider Jeff Passan tweeted out on Monday (May 10) that Seattle Mariners coveted top prospect Jarred Kelenic is expected to be called-up from AAA Tacoma to join the big league club when they return to Seattle on Thursday to open a series against the Cleveland Indians.
Seattle Mariners outfielder Mitch Haniger cranked both his 9th and 10th home runs of the 2021 season to pull into a tie for the American League lead in round-trippers but it wasn't enough as the M's bullpen couldn't hold on to a 4-1 lead late in the game at Chavez Ravine against the defending World Series champion Los Angeles Dodgers.
