Injury updates

Well, it seems our earlier assumption that center fielder Kyle Lewis' injury was relatively minor was a bit off the mark. It now appears that Lewis will likely need surgery to repair his latest knee troubles and miss a great deal of time on the field.

Futility, injuries, and batting around: M's take 1 of 3 vs. ChiSox

The just-completed three-game set against the White Sox left the Mariners with a 3-3 record as they hit the road for the first time in 2021. After taking two of three against the Giants, Seattle dropped two of three to the likely contenders from Chicago's south side and looked a bit schizophrenic when doing it.Monday night's game saw the anemic version of the Mariners, the group that can't execute with runners aboard but is plenty adept at whiffing at strike three. Tuesday night saw the opportunist M's, ready to pounce on opponent mistakes when at bat, but more than willing...

M's show some life in win vs Angels

Tonight's game against the Los Angeles Angels was an interesting one to watch. The Mariners won it, for one thing, which is always more fun than the usual. But it also had a lot of the good and a lot of the bad that we can expect to see as this weird mini-season unfolds.

Reds series shows what to expect from next year's M's

The Cincinnati Reds are not an intimidating team, but they are Major Leaguers and just a few days ago many of the Seattle Mariners were not. So taking two of three in this Interleague matchup is meaningful, in a couple of ways.
