The Orioles play deep into the night and emerge with yet another extra-inning victory.

The Tuesday, er, Wednesday Takeaway
It took five hours and 44 minutes, 16 pitchers, and 536 pitches, but when all was said and done at Safeco Field early Wednesday morning, the Orioles came away with their 14th consecutive extra-inning victory and their third in a row overall.

Mariners starter Erasmo Ramirez kept the visitors off the scoreboard for the first eight innings of the game and carried a 2-0 lead into the ninth thanks to Miguel Olivo’s fourth-inning homer, but he could not complete the shutout. A two-run single by Chris Davis, off closer Tom Wilhelmsen, knotted the tally at 2-2. Then the madness began.

Felix Hernandez wasn't wild on Wednesday, but this image of him is. In a good way.

Felix Hernandez was not, himself, a wild thing on Wednesday, when he beat the Rays without allowing a baserunner (or "pitched a perfect game," as we say in the biz). He threw 113 pitches, and 77 of them were strikes. He went to only three three-ball counts.

The Process: The Mariners' Missed Opportunity

39

Bradley Ankrom

Dealing Felix Hernandez at this year's non-waiver trade deadline could have significantly brightened the Mariners' future.

A true no. 1 starter is the rarest commodity in baseball, and the Seattle Mariners have had one in Felix Hernandez for the better part of a decade. Unfortunately, much of Hernandez’s value has been wasted on uncompetitive clubs: only twice since he reached the big leagues in 2005 have the Mariners finished above .500.

The subject of dealing their homegrown superstar is a sensitive one for Mariners fans, but an objective look at the facts suggests that the future of the organization would be much brighter if general manager Jack Zduriencik had moved Hernandez to a contender for a package of young impact bats that are close to big-league ready prior to this summer's non-waiver trade deadline.

Chris Sale pitches well once again, and once again looks disgusting doing it.

In four games from last Tuesday through last Saturday, the Mariners scored 45 runs, which was roughly the same number of runs that they'd scored in the previous two seasons combined. Yesterday, the universe acted to restore order, using Chris Sale as its agent. Sale pitched a complete game against the M's in Chicago, limiting them to two runs on two walks and five hits and pulling the string on Hawk Harrelson's back that makes him say "He gone!" on eight separate occasions.

A look at why the Mariners could be in a prime position to be sold

Before Howard Lincoln, Chuck Armstrong, and fans from the Pacific Northwest begin calling, the Seattle Mariners are not for sale. I’m not saying they are. I haven’t even heard a mere rumor to indicate as much. So if the Mariners do issue some kind of statement saying they are “unequivocally, absolutely not on the market” and that “Maury Brown is engaging in the worst kind of journalism,” everyone can point to the 90 words in the first paragraph of this article where I made sure to say they aren’t.

If you were to profile a club that was a prime candidate to be sold, however, the Mariners would be right there at the top of the list, very much looking the part of a club for sale. They are perfectly positioned. They have owners that seem to be in need of selling. And they’re sitting within a near-perfect atmosphere to be unloaded in the wake of the Dodgers sale. The Mariners may not be on the market at this time, but you’d be hard pressed to find a team more suited for it.

Western Front: Fixing a Bug in the Mariners

1

Geoff Young

Though Seattle is riddled with major glitches, it addressed a "blue screen of doom" type of malfunction by acquiring a bat this offseason.

Despite research and development's best efforts, the 2011 Seattle Mariners shipped with several bugs that prevented them from performing as desired by those who built the product and those who paid to watch it. In preparing the 2012 release, the team's engineers set about fixing some of those bugs—most notably the complete absence of offense—in the hope of improving the product's effectiveness, increasing its sales, and keeping customers happy enough to buy future versions.

The big move came last week, when the Mariners sent right-handers Michael Pineda and Jose Campos to the Yankees for catcher Jesus Montero and right-hander Hector Noesi. If we were to document the bug fix, it would look like this:

Kiss'Em Goodbye: Seattle Mariners

19

Jay Jaffe, Kevin Goldstein and ESPN Insider

The Mariners have some nice building blocks but are still a couple of bats short.

Kiss 'Em Goodbye is a series focusing on MLB teams as their postseason dreams fadewhether in September (or before), the League Division Series, League Championship Series or World Series. It combines a broad overview from Baseball Prospectus, a front-office take from former MLB GM Jim Bowden, a best- and worst-case scenario ZiPS projection for 2012 from Dan Szymborski and Kevin Goldstein's farm system overview.
