Road trip roundup

The Mariners' just-completed road swing through Florida and Houston contained a little good, a lot of bad, and even some ugly. Riding high at the end of their last homestand, they began the trip four games over .500 and in first place.

2022 Season Preview: Starting rotation

Unlike the last two seasons (OK, one plus the mini-2020), the Mariners will not start the year with a six-man rotation.

It didn't really pan out, the pitchers didn't like it, and—perhaps most importantly to manager Scott Servais—it deprived the bullpen of yet another arm that it didn't need (the Seattle bullpen had anywhere from 8-11 pitchers in it last year while the team carried a minuscule bench).
