Junior makes amends

prospectinsider.com — Seattle loves Ken Griffey, Jr. and it's no secret why. He was a tremendous baseball talent, the once-in-a-generation type. He made incredible plays and ran off the field grinning ear to ear. He hit majestic home runs and owned the New York Yankees. He hit homers in eight straight games and raced home on Edgar's Double.

Three moves for the Mariners

prospectinsider.com — The Seattle Mariners are a .500 club. Since starting 31-22 they've lost 25 of 39 and sit 8/5 games back of Texas and 3.5 behind Houston in the American League West. In the Wild Card hunt, the Mariners now are five full games back, a half-game behind Kansas City, two behind Detroit and that same 35 games behind the Astros.

Churchill: Seattle Mariners trade targets

prospectinsider.com — The Seattle Mariners appear to have righted the ship somewhat after dropping 15 of 21 and for a short time falling below .500. They went 7-2 on the recent home stanza and while all is not perfect, the starting pitching has been a little better and the bullpen has been a little better for it.

Potential M’s Trade Targets: Outfielders

prospectinsider.com — Offense is one area Seattle Mariners GM Jerry Dipoto should not be overly aggressive this summer, though it's conceivable an upgrade could fall into their laps. Defense should be a major part of the decision to add another outfielder, however, and if that player offers more at the plate, that's gravy.

Potential M’s Trade Targets: Bullpen

prospectinsider.com — The Seattle Mariners' bullpen has been under fire of late, both in terms of workload and by way of criticism stemming from losing late leads and contributing to losses in heartbreaking fashion. It's stabilized a bit over the past few weeks, thanks to the emergence of rookie Edwin Diaz and closer Steve Cishek avoid the middle of the plate versus left-handed batters.

Potential M’s Trade Targets: Rotation

prospectinsider.com — The Seattle Mariners have plenty of "depth" but Wade Miley has been a shell of himself and Felix Hernandez's step backward and recent disabled list stint have put more pressure on the rest of the rotation to perform. Another No. 3 or better starter changes the dynamic of the Mariners chances the final 2-3 months, and a reliable No.

Seattle Mariners Top 20 Prospects Mid-Season

prospectinsider.com — The Seattle Mariners' farm system is among the organization's weak spots, thanks to a ton of graduations, a trade or two and mostly a failure that may lie at the feet of the player development plans of the previous regime. Things may be turning around, however, and there are a few new talents poking their heads through the sand.

M’s Mid-Season Report: Down on the Farm

prospectinsider.com — "When the unexpected becomes the expected, strange becomes familiar." - Jason A. Churchill | May 20, 2016 While the parent club stabilizes a bit after a tough three-plus weeks, perhaps the most important happenings in the entire Seattle Mariners organization is the revival occurring down on the farm.

M’s Mid-Season Report: Scouting Scott Servais

prospectinsider.com — "When the unexpected becomes the expected, strange becomes familiar." - Jason A. Churchill | May 20, 2016 Scott Servais has been a manager, at any level, for half a season. I'm a nitpick on how I feel a game should be managed, and I have but a half a complaint with the way Servais has managed the Seattle Mariners in 2016.

What to expect from Mike Zunino

prospectinsider.com — The Seattle Mariners' catcher of the future is back in the majors. Whether that's good or bad remains to be seen. Mike Zunino was rushed to the big leagues after being selected No. 2 overall on the 2012 Draft. He received a total of 229 plate appearances in Triple-A Tacoma prior to receiving the call-up in 2013.

Look how much more free and easy Miley is. On top, out front, staying closed, still on 3B side -- thought he might experiment with that.

Good morning, good afternoon and goodnight, eh?
