New York Mets starting pitcher, Noah Syndergaard has been placed on the 10-day DL with a partially torn right lat muscle. Check out my video below and you can hear my thoughts on the injury. Also, don’t forget to subscribe to my Youtube channel!
Washington Nationals outfielder, Adam Eaton tore his ACL and will miss the remainder of the 2017 season.
Since I paid for this site, I figured I need to get my moneys worth out of it. I’m sorry I couldn’t keep up with a Seattle blog but I hope if anyone stumbles onto this they enjoy my Youtube videos. Here is my most recent video:
The Seattle Seahawks signed veteran running back, Eddie Lacy today! I give all my thoughts about the signing in my Youtube video below. Check it out!
The Seattle Mariners announce another trade this offseason, with a trade that sends veteran catcher, Jesus Sucre to the Tampa Bay Rays for a player to be named later.
Sucre was outright released a few days ago and was signed back to Triple-A Tacoma. Sucre, who is a 28-year old catcher has no more minor league options left. So, that left him in a tricky situation.
Sucre has always shaped up as a third catcher for the Mariners and without a Minor League option left, the Mariners wouldn’t be able to option him to Tacoma during the regular season.
The Mariners just claimed another catcher named Tuffy Goswisch from the Arizona Diamondbacks. He is 33-years old with an option left, in which he can be moved between Tacoma and Seattle.
The catching situation for the Mariners shapes up like this going into 2017, Mike Zunino will be the primary guy behind the dish, with the veteran Carlos Ruiz backing him up.
I am oddly hopeful this season for the Mariners catchers. I know it has been a train wreck at that position for years now but I think Zunino will have a good year at the plate this season. Ruiz is also a nice added veteran presence who has succeeded at the plate for his entire career.
With those two holding down the catching position, it should shape up to be a productive season for Mariners catchers.
Getting traded to the Rays may have been the move for Sucre’s career and I hope nothing but the best for him down in Tampa Bay. I hope he is able to make the big-leagues and contribute on the Rays roster.
Mariners fans won’t forget you, good luck to you and your family in Tampa Bay, Mr. Sucre!
After the Seattle Seahawks lost to the Atlanta Falcons 36-20, in the Divisional round of the playoffs. An injured Earl Thomas went to Twitter to vent his frustrations about the lose to the Falcons, along with his hate for the Patriots.
The All-Pro free safety probably felt like every Seahawks fan, after falling short in the playoffs for a second consecutive year.
Here are some of Thomas’ Tweets from last night:
You can think what you want about Thomas’ tirade on Twitter, but I enjoyed seeing it. It showed to me that he is still hungry and wants to compete next year.
The Seahawks have a lot of improving to do over the off season this year. There is a lot of holes that need fixing on all three sides of the football.
I truly believe that this will be one of the most important off seasons for Pete Carroll and John Schneider since they showed up in Seattle, in 2010.
Looking back at the game this past weekend, the Seahawks were a good team this season but not a great one. You can say what you want about Thomas being out and the bad offensive line play but the Seahawks just weren’t that great this season.
Everyone on the team is growing up and getting older and it seems like they care less and less about football. I would love to see this team get younger and hungrier going into this next season. It’s hard to be hungry when half of your teams belly is full.
I am not trying to say that there is a lack of effort or anything like that, but you can see a difference of energy between this season and say the 2012-2014 seasons.
The Seahawks haven’t been healthy for a full season since the Super Bowl season in 2013 and that is one of their biggest faults. I would love to see this team completely healthy for a season and see if they can actually duplicate what they did in 13′ and 14′.
But, none the less, the season is over and the Seahawks have some improving to do. I can’t wait to see what the Seahawks do this off season to help improve their team going into the 2017 regular season.
