Seattle Mariners Heartbreak for Twenty Years and Counting

October 6, 2001 featured another win for the 2001 Seattle Mariners over the Texas Rangers by a score of 1-0. The Mariners were on pace to their historic 116-win season while the Rangers were amid a losing season.

The Seattle Mariners Continue to Bring Sadness and Anger to MLB

On July 26, 2021, the Seattle Mariners pulled off an improbable comeback victory over the 1st place AL West Houston Astros. They had a seven-run deficit by the 4th inning and the team slowly chipped away at the lead until the 8th inning.

My Too Early MLB Free Agency Predictions

With the MLB season coming to an end in the coming days, I wanted to put out a list of my top free agents for the 2021 season. Now, this list consists of players who are guaranteed free agency in 2021. It does not consist of those who have options with their teams nor is it my total comprehensive list of free agents. If I decided to show the entire list, I would have a novel. ...

Which World Series Title is More Legitimate, 2017 or 2020?

With the stage of the 2020 World Series being set, some have asked, “How legitimate is the 2020 title?” During a normal year, the MLB season has a total of 162 games, not including Spring Training. Typically, in July, the All-Star break is held. When the All-Star break happens, it marks the halfway point of the baseball season. Due to COVID-19, the MLB season was shortened to ...
