Churchill: GM Candidates

prospectinsider.com — With the news breaking Friday morning that the Seattle Mariners parted ways with Jack Zduriencik we've already started to hear the names of possible replacements. It's all speculation at this point, but retreads galore likely are littering your Twitter timeline, drawing eye rolls and even some 'WTF' replies. Understandably.

A glance at MLB awards picture

prospectinsider.com — I don't put as much stock in Major League Baseball's awards as I once did. What used to be an aspect of the game that I enjoyed very much -- seeing the historical seasons rewarded with hardware as well as amplify my memories of it -- now has become more of a narrative: "Will the voters get it right?"

Seattle’s Baseball Treasure

prospectinsider.com — I read recently that Los Angeles Dodgers play-by-play announcer Vin Scully has been with the club for 56 years. Now, I knew he'd been around forever, but, wow. Since the age of 21, he's been in the booth doing some form of radio or television work for the Dodgers. Fifty-six years!

Chris Taylor’s future

prospectinsider.com — Recently Chris Taylor was a topic of conversation on Twitter between yours truly and an observant follower or two. While that particular back-and-forth was based on a misinterpretation of a previous note I sent out, a discussion about Taylor's future is warranted at this point.

The case for retaining Jack Zduriencik

prospectinsider.com — It's easy to point to the reasons why the Seattle Mariners should go in a different direction at general manager, including two winning seasons in seven years, no postseason appearances and the manner in which the original plan -- build a strong foundation through scouting and development -- has failed quite miserably.

Satisfactory deadline for Mariners

prospectinsider.com — The Seattle Mariners were busy prior to Friday's trade deadline, consummating three deals and essentially 'selling' rather than renting for 2015 or buying for 2016 and beyond.

MLB, Top Prospects, Scouting, Seattle Mariners, MLB Draft

prospectinsider.com — The Seattle Mariners appear to have recalled Ketel Marte from Triple-A Tacoma, most likely to play some second base while Robinson Cano recovers from an abdominal strain. Chris Taylor was sent back to Tacoma to clear roster space. Marte sat out Thursday's game in El Paso after originally being in the lineup, Prospect Insider learned just prior to the game.

The magic of the Trade Deadline

prospectinsider.com — Winter moves often are far more meaningful than ones made mid-season. Trades made in July sometimes provides only marginal upgrades to a club's roster, and even when said upgrade is rather large, a slump by the acquired player can and often has rendered the moves somewhat useless.

Deadline approach differential

prospectinsider.com — The Oakland Athletics have traded left-hander Scott Kazmir, setup man Tyler clippard and utility master Ben Zobrist to contending clubs in the last five days. All three players are headed for free agency. The Cleveland Indians moved platoon outfielder David Murphy Tuesday. The Rays dealt outfielder David DeJesus Tuesday, too.

Most asked about Mariners

prospectinsider.com — With the trade deadline approaching - 1 PM PT Friday - so many conversations, ideas, negotiations and offers will occur that our collective heads will spin. One piece of interesting data is the set of names being discussed the most. For the Seattle Mariners, this means two different sets of names.
