    Dr. Anthony Fauci was booed by baseball fans on Tuesday as he threw out the first pitch in the Seattle Mariners game against the New York Yankees. Fauci has seen a massive dip in his popularity since his meteoric rise to becoming a household name during the beginning of the pandemic, as over half of independent voters want him gone.  '58.9 percent of independent voters believe Dr. Fauci should resign his position and role in leading the government’s COVID-19 response to allow for new leadership,' a poll by Convention of States Action showed earlier this year. Those voters will likely get their wish -- Fauci said in July he would be leaving his post by the end of President Joe Biden's first term.  #Anthonyfauci gets mixed reception when introduced to throw out the first pitch at @Mariners vs @Yankees game in #seattle pic.twitter.com/V9Wom7f0rI— Matt Markovich (@mattmarkovich) August 10, 2022 Dr. Anthony Fauci pumps his fist after successfully throwing the first pitch in the Seattle Mariners versus New York Yankees on August 7, 2022 Dr. Anthony Fauci threw out the first pitch...
    SEATTLE — Jameson Taillon gave the Yankees a much needed breather and himself a boost of confidence. The right-hander gave the Bombers seven solid innings as they beat the Mariners 9-4 at T-Mobile Park Monday night, their first win since the trade deadline. The win snapped a season-high five-game losing streak for the Yankees (71-39) and rebuilt a little lead in the race for the best record in the American League (one game) over the Astros. They were also able to regain their double-digit lead in the American League East (10.5) over the Blue Jays. “Every win is important. I mean, obviously, going through a little bit of a rut, as we did, I mean, it was big,” Josh Donaldson said. “Taillon going seven for us today was huge, battling out of an early jam. From the offensive standpoint, I felt like we just kept going, having good at-bats and tacking on runs and that was important.” Josh Donaldson singled in the first to drive in two runs, homered in the third, doubled to lead off the fifth inning and...
    Just two weeks ago, Ashton Izzi was living at home with his parents and going to practices with his travel team. Much has changed for the recent Oswego East graduate, who is living the life of a professional baseball player. Every morning, Izzi gets to the Seattle Mariners’ spring training complex in Peoria, Arizona, by 7 a.m. “It’s a little weird not having my family with me,” he said. “I feel like I’m prepared for this and prepared to live the professional life. I have to start working my way to the top.” Izzi had signed a national letter of intent to play at Wichita State. But as more scouts started to watch the 6-foot-3 right-hander pitch during the high school season, it became apparent he could start his pro career a lot sooner. As the second day of the draft progressed last month, Izzi’s adviser called him and told him to be prepared because the Mariners were interested. “I got what I wanted from them, and I got a call saying ‘watch the draft,’ and my name came up,”...
    The New York Yankees have been the subject of MLB rumors connecting them to Luis Castillo but reluctance to trade one player cost them that chance. Luis Castillo would have been a nice addition to the New York Yankees. There were plenty of MLB rumors involving New York until he was finally traded by the Cincinnati Reds to the Seattle Mariners. Where did it all go wrong for the team that seems to always get what they want? The asking price for Castillo was high and one the Yankees definitely had the cash for. But maybe they weren’t so interested in depleting their savings account to land this particular player. Instead, they’ll have to look elsewhere because they apparently didn’t have a willingness to go as far as the Mariners did. Maybe there is a store brand version of Castillo out there for them.MLB rumors: Why Luis Castillo isn’t pitching for the YankeesCastillo was a popular man. According to Mark Feinsand, a dozen teams made their bids for him. Unfortunately, the Yankees were only “close” with what they were willing...

The Seattle Mariners got their man in starting pitcher Luis Castillo.

He also isn’t a free agent until next offseason so the Mariners had to give a pretty penny to get him for the top of their rotation.

    Usain Bolt has blamed his failed spell in the A-League on the poor quality of the competition and admitted signing for Central Coast Mariners was 'a mistake'. The track and field legend completed a shock move to the Mariners four years ago as he pursued his dream to play soccer professionally after quitting athletics in 2017. The Jamaican played two pre-season games for Central Coast and even found the back of the net twice, but quit his trial in November 2018 after rejecting a one-season deal.

    (CNN)The Los Angeles Angels' win over the Seattle Mariners in the MLB on Sunday was overshadowed by a mass brawl that broke out between both teams in the second inning.With the Mariners already feeling aggrieved that an earlier pitch thrown by Andrew Wantz was close to Julio Rodriguez's head, Wantz then hit Jesse Winker on the hip.That sparked angry scenes as a furious Winker made his way towards the Angels' bench, leading both benches to empty and eventually resulting in eight ejections. Why is baseball no longer Americas Game?"That probably shouldn't happen in the game, what happened out there today," Seattle manager Scott Servais, one of those ejected, told reporters. "Emotions running high, but it was pretty clear what was going on. They switched, put an opener in there to throw some balls at us.

Aller/Getty Images) This week’s MLB Power Rankings firmly cement several teams as some of the best around. It has officially arrived. It’s Memorial Day. This is the day when the MLB standings truly do measure a team’s greatness or weakness. It’s the unofficial kick-off to summer. Suddenly, the MLB Power Rankings are a little more locked into place than they were even a week ago. This week’s list doesn’t include quite as many big swings as some of the past ones, including the list of thirty from last week. In fact, a couple of the best teams are exactly where they were and look to have locked themselves into a certain top ten position.

    Prior to Sunday, a bright and warm afternoon at a packed-out Citi Field, the Mets had been 6-0 in rubber matches this season. That record was snapped when the Mets lost their first series of the year in a 8-7 defeat to the Mariners. The Mets (23-13) opened the weekend’s series hosting Seattle as the only team in MLB to have avoided losing a series. The run, which was broken on Sunday, was the Mets’ longest span in franchise history to open a season without losing a series — surpassing the 1998 Mets, who did not lose any of their first eight series. Carlos Carrasco set the tone Sunday for a Mets pitching staff that struggled to put up zeroes. The veteran right-hander allowed traffic on the basepaths in four of the five innings he attempted to navigate. In the fourth, Carrasco loaded the bases with nobody out and allowed all three runs to score. By the fifth, when the Mets tried to hang onto a one-run lead, Carrasco’s double to Jesse Winker was the final straw for manager Buck...
    ST. LOUIS — An amusing group chat has emerged from the frenetic San Francisco-Seattle roster-go-round. Donovan Walton, Kevin Padlo and Mike Ford have in some way or another shuffled between the Mariners and the Giants over the past two weeks. To keep in touch — and keep track — the trio of players started texting each other. The current status report: Walton, the latest trade target, joined the Giants in St. Louis on a taxi-squad basis (not part of the active roster). Padlo, who came over in exchange for cash, is a regular at Triple-A Sacramento. And Ford, who joked about being the designated “COVID replacement player,” was shipped back to Seattle to add Walton to the 40-man roster. “Crazy,” said Walton, 28, who has a career .196/.260/.315 batting line in 102 MLB plate appearances. “We were cracking jokes about it. It was good to see Padlo yesterday. He said nothing but great things, so I’m excited to be here.” Walton got to say hi to Padlo, but that’s about all he had time for. He arrived in St. Louis...
    In December of 2018 the Mets and Mariners lined up on a huge trade that seemed so obviously won by the Mariners. Time to rethink that. The New York Mets and Seattle Mariners pulled off a massive trade that saw the Mets acquire super-closer Edwin Diaz and Robinson Cano and everything that comes with him. When the move was first announced, fans of the game everywhere could not believe the Mets would trade away two top prospects in outfielder Jarred Kelenic and starting pitcher Justin Dunn. The deal was immediately labeled as a loss by the Mets by fans and pundits in the industry alike (see reactions from NY Post, ESPN, Yahoo Sports). Robinson Cano is expected to sign with the Padres today and be activated for tonight’s game.

    SEATTLE (AP) — Jesse Winker capped an 11-pitch at-bat with a broken-bat single into right field to score Adam Frazier, and the Seattle Mariners beat the Kansas City Royals 5-4 in 12 innings on Sunday to complete a three-game sweep. Winker had an 11-pitch at-bat in the 10th inning ending with a sacrifice fly that scored Frazier to tie the game at 4-4. Two innings later, Winker fouled off seven pitches from Kansas City’s Joel Payamps (0-1) before dumping his first hit of the game into right field. Frazier scored easily when Whit Merrifield’s throw was up the line. Yohan Ramirez (1-0) got the victory escaping a jam in the 12th. Ramirez, the sixth Seattle reliever, walked Michael A. Taylor and Ryan O’Hearn with one out in the 12th, loading the bases. But he recovered to strike out Merrifield and Nicky Lopez. Ty France continued his hot hitting with a two-run homer on the third pitch of the game for Seattle. France was intentionally walked before even stepping into the batters’ box to open the bottom of...
    Chicago White Sox right fielder Adam Engel hit a popup near home plate with two outs in the fifth inning Thursday at Guaranteed Rate Field. Seattle Mariners catcher Cal Raleigh, battling the wind, dropped the ball and Engel reached second on a two-base error. Jake Burger followed with a popup between second and third. Shortstop J.P. Crawford couldn’t make the catch on a play that was ruled a, scoring Engel and bringing the Sox within a run on a blustery afternoon. Raleigh made up for his miscue in the seventh with a home run — the second of three homers on the day for the Mariners, who topped the Sox 5-1 in front of 13,391. “It’s just a weird day,” Sox first baseman Gavin Sheets said. “We were talking on the infield. Everybody had to help each other out, because you never knew which way the ball was going to go. “It was moving about 20 feet out there, at least, in the air. You’re just helping out your teammates on those.” The Sox were limited to four singles —...

    Luis Robert did it all in Tuesday’s home opener for the Chicago White Sox. He made a splendid leaping catch to save a run in the third inning against the Seattle Mariners. He broke a tie with a line-drive home run in the sixth. And he stole two bases on the way to scoring an insurance run in the eighth as the Sox beat the Mariners 3-2 in front of a sellout crowd of 36,948 at Guaranteed Rate Field. Reynaldo López struck out two in 1⅔ scoreless relief innings for the victory as the Sox won their third straight. The Mariners struck first with a solo homer by Eugenio Suárez with one out in the second against Sox starter Vince Velasquez. The Mariners threatened in the third as Velasquez issued consecutive one-out walks. Jesse Winker hit a long fly to center, and Robert raced back, jumped and caught the ball as he crashed into the wall. Mitch Haniger popped out to shortstop Tim Anderson to end the inning. Mariners starter Matt Brash retired the first seven hitters in his big-league...
    Mariners star prospect Julio Rodriguez made the Mariners’ Opening Day roster and immediately called his parents to celebrate, prompting tears of joy from his dad. Most parents want to see their children achieve their dreams. For Julio Rodriguez, the dream was to make the major leagues.

    A decision could be coming soon for Kris Bryant and now a new team has entered the sweepstakes in trying to sign him.  Where is stud third baseman Kris Bryant headed next? That’s what everyone is waiting to find out, and there are several teams hoping they land him. The Seattle Mariners have of course been mentioned of late, but now there’s a new club hoping to win out. And that team is Colorado. According to MLB insider Mark Feinsand, the Rockies have serious interest in getting something done in the near future. Will it be Colorado for the former World Series champ? The Rockies have had discussions with Kris Bryant’s camp, per source, and the interest is real. Given the CBA situation, the clock is ticking for a deal will get done prior to the expiration of the CBA, as time would be tight at this point to get a physical done. — Mark Feinsand (@Feinsand) November 30, 2021 Kris Bryant signing with the Rockies would break Seattle hearts It really does feel like breaking Bryant news could be...
    While the San Francisco Giants are hoping to re-sign Kevin Gausman this winter, there are multiple teams trying to land him as well.  Coming off the first All-Star campaign of his career, Kevin Gausman sure put on a show ahead of free agency.

    SEATTLE (AP) — Of all the moments in the unexpected September charge made by the Seattle Mariners, there’s one day in particular that stood out to manager Scott Servais. It was a must-win Wednesday night in the final week against Oakland. His lineup featured a 24-year-old catcher, a 24-year-old starting pitcher, middle infielders aged 26 and 24 and a 22-year-old center fielder. And that doesn’t include the 27-year-old first baseman who was Seattle’s best overall hitter this year, or the 26-year-old former rookie of the year who played just 36 games due to injury. In other words, the Mariners are young, talented and seemed to have changed the narrative about their future after an unexpected 90-win season. “It’s a group that has really, I think, clearly defined itself on what we value and what our process looks like going forward,” Servais said. “And that’s not going to change.” The Mariners fell short of snapping their 20-year playoff drought on the final weekend. But the year was still a successful one that established the Mariners’ core. ...
    This week, Inside the Clubhouse looks at the final state of the playoff races, some MLB free agents to watch, Casey Sadler’s breakout and more. The current American League wild-card standings: New York Yankees: 90-68Boston Red Sox: 89-69Seattle Mariners: 89-70Toronto Blue Jays: 88-70 The Oakland A’s, currently 85-74, are out after dropping seven of their last 10 games. They have lost 10 straight games against the Mariners and had they just split those games, they would have had sole possession of the first AL Wild Card spot. Instead, it eliminates the possibility of a five-way tie. But the next four days promise to deliver suspense and drama in what should be the most exciting wild card race in recent memory. Getting to this point required patience, but the Yankees are playing their most consistent baseball at the right time. Giancarlo Stanton and Aaron Judge have been their best performers. Anthony Rizzo, Gio Urshela and Gleyber Torres have stepped up offensively. The bullpen has the second-lowest bullpen ERA in the American League this season, with Chad Green, Luis Severino, Wandy Peralta...
    The fighting in America last night was more intense than ever. As the Blue Jays, Red Sox and Mariners won their game, it became some big baseball. Rank here. Screenshot: MLB With their 98th win, the Radiators made sure to have their best professional season, but here they are in complete control of the Americans above all else. They will have a home advantage (at least) until the World Series. Since the Astros are in a good position to beat their division, it gives us a good guarantee of an Astros v. White socks curtain raiser. We also notice that the magic number of A is no longer there. Here they are eliminated from the competition for the playoffs. But here I am reminded of the teams in the best runner-up racing. In TorontoMarcus Semion scored his 44th home homa, the second-highest goal-scoring record in MLB history.

    Yankees: A fourth team is now firmly in the AL Wild Card race Andres Chavez September 28, 2021 Share on facebook Facebook Share on twitter Twitter Share on reddit Reddit The Wild Card spots in the National League are virtually decided already, with the Los Angeles Dodgers comfortably taking the first one a while ago, and the St. Louis Cardinals set to take the second one. However, the picture in the American League is much murkier, and the New York Yankees have a lot of work to do if they want to secure their ticket to the postseason. The AL East is looking to sweep the Wild Card: the Tampa Bay Rays already took the division, but the Yankees (89-67) have the first berth as of right now, with the Boston Red Sox (88-68) holding the second one. The Toronto Blue Jays (87-69) are just a game behind the Red Sox, but there is a fourth team with very good chances. The Seattle Mariners (87-70), to the surprise of virtually everyone, is right...

    Mariners left fielder Jake Fraley had himself a little adventure on Wednesday afternoon as he tried to chase down a long fly ball from the Bobby Dalbec of the Red Sox. With a runner on first in the top of the second, Dalbec smacked a deep fly ball to left center field. Fraley started to chase the ball down, albeit taking a circuitous route to do so. Eventually, he let up as if he thought center fielder Jarred Kelenic would be in a position to make the grab. Realizing this wasn’t the case, Fraley made a last ditch effort to catch the ball, and stumbled to the ground face down. The ball bounced on the warning track and into the stands for a ground-rule double. “Fraley just butchered that,” said Red Sox play-by-play man Dave O’Brien. “He and Kelenic were just staring at each other like, ‘Are you gonna take it?’ Who’s gonna take it?” The Red Sox would go on to score two runs in the inning. Fraley’s miscue comes a day after Jake Brentz of the Kansas City...
    Abraham Toro proves the Seattle Mariners are victorious in the Kendall Graveman trade with the Houston Astros after one most glorious swing of the bat. Abraham Toro was the difference for the Seattle Mariners on Tuesday, as he took Kendall Graveman of the Houston Astros‘ offering deep into the night for a grand slam. As Toro touched ’em all to give the M’s a deciding 4-0 lead over Houston, we began to realize he was the player the Astros sent to Seattle in exchange for the highly-coveted relief pitcher. To make things even better, this is apparently the first time in MLB history where a player hit a grand slam off the pitcher he was traded for in the same season he was dealt. No bull.

    OAKLAND — A’s starting pitcher Chris Bassitt is expected back in the Bay Area later this week following what the club described as “successful” facial surgery Tuesday at Rush Medical Center in Chicago. Bassitt, the A’s No. 1 starter, took a line drive to the face off the bat of Brian Goodwin on Aug. 18 and was immediately taken to the hospital. The drive was timed at 100.1 miles per hour.

    The Venezuelan Jose Altuve of the Astros Houston smashed the Seattle Mariners’ pitching and established a record on the MLB. On the corresponding day on Saturday, the Seattle Mariners and the Houston Astros were measured at Minute Park.

    ARLINGTON (CBSDFW.COM/AP) — Texas Rangers pitcher Taylor Hearn made his fourth start of the season and despite having a solid showing the Mariners beat the Rangers 3-1 on Tuesday night. Mariners pitcher Tyler Anderson, who  allowed one run on three hits in six innings, was acquired from the Pittsburgh Pirates on July 28. He had no-decisions in his first four starts for the team, who have won five of their last six games and pulled within four games of the American League’s last wild-card spot.

    When fulfilled 9 years of the perfect game from the former Venezuelan pitcher Felix Hernandez on the MLB, the question arises that He passed with his reign in the majors. On August 15, 2012, the Creole pitcher covered himself with glory by launching a perfect game with the Seattle Mariners against the Tampa Bay Rays where his team won 1-0 with a scoreboard. That pitching feat was one of the great performances that the King had with the Mariners, which was the team with which he pitched in the MLB, From 2005 to 2019, he posted a 169-136 record, a 3.42 ERA and 2,542 strikeouts, including a Cy Young Award. 9 years after perfection: What happened to King Felix?
