Churchill: Fixing the Mariners

prospectinsider.com — The Seattle Mariners are big business. Yes, they're a Major League Baseball team, but it's a $9 billion industry and the M's are a business. That business has invested heavily in the product in the form of Robinson Cano 's $240 million contract, the $175 million value of King Felix's deal and the $58 million guaranteed handed out to Nelson Cruz this past winter.

Scouting Ian Oxnevad

prospectinsider.com — Four years ago I trailed a lanky southpaw from Shorewood High School (Wash.) most of that spring. He was filthy, including a fastball up to 96 mph and a put-away curveball. Today, Blake Snell is property of the Tampa Bay Rays, and he owns a 49-inning scoreless streak as he dominates the Double-A Southern League.

LISTEN: Joel Corry Talks Russell Wilson Contract

seattle.cbslocal.com — Former agent and CBSSports.com analyst Joel Corry joined The Sandmeyer Show Monday discussing the potential impact of Ryan Tannehill's new deal may have on Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson.

The Vedder Cup: Three Things

seattle.cbslocal.com — The San Diego Padres (17-16) were Preller-ized over the winter and bring in a vastly different roster in 2015, one that has led to a solid start to the season. The Seattle Mariners (14-17) are winners of three straight, following a sweep of the Oakland Athletics at Safeco Field.

Ketel Marte turning heads

prospectinsider.com — A scout told me via text last summer to keep an eye on shortstop Ketel Marte. I'd seen him the previous summer at Short-season Everett, and while I liked him I didn't come away believing I just watched a future major league regular. What I did see, however, no longer exists.

@alsup_steve not anytime soon. Have to give the 'ready' player ample time. Marte had to show he's ready. Isn't there. May take all year

@sonics20 to be that bad W-L wise v LHP is either unlucky as heck or just really bad.

May 27, 2015

@tonydif Long-term prospects. Have raw power to play everyday. Need to develop hit tools.

May 27, 2015

The Oakland A's are 1-10 v LH starters and 2-15 in 1-run games.
