Get Well Soon Mariano Rivera from Mariners Nation

May 4, 2012 by · Leave a Comment 

I vaguely recall seeing the young Rivera pictured above for the first time during the 1995 playoff series with the Yankees. Rivera did not become the closer for the Yankees till 1996 but he did see action in games 2,3 and 5 of that thrilling playoff match-up that was perhaps the highlight of my many […]

The Mariners Still an Expansion Team after 35 Years

I have not written a post in a couple of days mostly due to the fact that I have simply been uninspired. It seems to be a common theme amongst people around town who like myself have followed the Mariners for so long and see no real hope for a return the playoffs in sight […]

I managed to watch part of tonight’s game while I was packing for my flight to Italy in the morning and was not even fazed by the 7-0 trouncing at the hands of The Oakland A’s as I was focusing on my thoughts for my farewell Mariners Blog for 2011. I guess to sum it […]

In a season that has lacked a lot of great games for us loyal Mariners fans, tonight’s 2-1 win over the New York Yankees has to rate right up there with the top five. Tonight’s game was a nail-biter all the way, climaxing with a walk-off homer by Luis Rodriguez in the bottom of the […]

The Seattle Mariners snapped a painful 17-game losing streak by trouncing the New York Yankees 9-2 as all of us in Mariners Nation let out a sigh of relief. Mariners Ace Felix Hernandez went 7 frames allowing only a run and for once he got the backing of his teammates who scored 9 runs thanks […]

The Seattle Mariners had the day off today as they prepare for the San Diego Padres series this weekend hoping to get back on track. I took a couple days off from my Mariners Blog to process where we are at the mid-point of the season and to recuperate from the last ten days of […]

Meet Kate Wedge the wife of Mariners Skipper Eric Wedge

Kate Wedge at the Safe While much has been written about the great job that manager Eric Wedge has done this year with the Seattle Mariners, not much has been said about the skipper’s wife, Kate Wedge. I was fortunate enough to meet her last night through a mutual friend as I was enjoying the […]

The Seattle Mariners, a mystery off the field

August 13, 2010 by · Leave a Comment 

The Mariners get a day to rest before starting a series with the Cleveland Indians tomorrow so there is no need for my usual ranting about the dismal state of this fading season. Instead I thought I would talk a little about the players themselves and their lives off the field. Of course being that […]

Well I finally had enough of the Mariners and drove down to Tacoma to watch the Rainiers beat the Reno Aces 8-2 tonight and it was fun! Yes that is right watching baseball can be fun, especially if the team you are rooting for wins and the atmosphere is relaxed and welcoming like it was […]
