Ty France continues to get no respect

The Mariners are on an historic 11-game winning streak. That's what matters (insofar as anything related to baseball matters in the grand scheme of things). Next Tuesday's All-Star Game is merely an exhibition, a sideshow. Moreover, it's a sideshow that has become a parody of itself in recent years with the advent of mic'd up player interviews while they are on the field, either fielding or batting, and absolutely no one involved with the actual playing of the game cares who wins.

More injuries, more roster shuffling

The already popular Mariners' injured list is adding two more names. First baseman Evan White has officially been placed on the 10-day IL with a hip flexor strain, suffered on a diving play in last night's loss to Cleveland. Infielder/DH Ty France is headed there as well, having been unable to adequately play through wrist pain suffered from being hit on the forearm by a 98-mph fastball on April 19th.

Previewing the '21 Mariners: Outfield/DH

The future is bright for Your Seattle Mariners when it comes to outfielders. The present is a little dimmer, but any youth movement has growing pains; 2021 may see a fair number of those as the building of the New Mariner Dynasty™ continues. Top prospects Jarred Kelenic and Julio Rodríguez will start the season in the minor leagues (as they should) and the guys on the big club have some developing left to do.
