Paxton and Walker key to M's season

prospectinsider.com — There's an ongoing phenomena in the Pacific Northwest that hasn't occurred in quite some time. The Seattle Mariners are fielding a competitive roster in August that has a realistic chance at the postseason. Sure, the Mariners were within a win of a play-in game for a wildcard berth in 2014, but this time it's different.

M's Q3 Report: Roster Analysis

prospectinsider.com — "When the unexpected becomes the expected, strange becomes familiar." - Jason A. Churchill | May 20, 2016 At the halfway point of the 2016 season, the rotation of the Seattle Mariners was in disarray and their bullpen ineffective. It looked as if their season was quickly slipping away, especially after going 10-18 during the month of June.

M's Q-3 report: Standings, Trends, Offense

What happened to Ketel Marte?

prospectinsider.com — In early May, Seattle Mariners general manager Jerry Dipoto made his feelings clear regarding his starting shortstop when told "Danny, Dave and Moore " of 710 ESPN Seattle "I've said from the day I got here, maybe the most surprising player of those that I was fortunate enough to inherit is Ketel Marte ."

Top Mariners Prospects Most Progress

prospectinsider.com — The Seattle Mariners system began the season as one of the more shallow collections of talent in Major League Baseball. That remains true, but we're no longer staring at a nearly-dry well, and the club has probably climbed its way out of the bottom three or four in the league, and it's not solely due to the selection of Kyle Lewis in June's draft.

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.

@jeremybyrne7 Thanks, Jeremy. I won't be starting a new podcast, though, and full-time radio is not in the cards for me anymore.

Reasons include time constraints and other challenges. Thanks to everyone who supported the podcast.  https://twitter.com/ProspectInsider/status/768336348075823104

After some consideration, it's been decided the Sandmeyer and Churchill podcast will cease recording new episodes effective immediately.

@swanny72 No teams have multiple good bunters for hits. No team.

Aug 24, 2016

@swanny72 1. Fast doesn't = good bunters 2. You can do it once or twice, anyway 3. You give away strikes and outs in the meantime

@jbKawika Many grips/approaches with curveball, cutter/slider, the non-wind delivery hurts him. Through '15 was taught to throw not pitch.

Aaron Sanchez. Same draft year. Although he was handled better, obviously.  https://twitter.com/BrettMillerWCB/status/768300611058016256
