Mariners making moves, moving up

Let me start my saying I like the moves the Mariners have made so far. I do.

Now, let's talk a little about what they are.

First, they signed right-handed bopper Nelson Cruz to a 4-year $58 million deal. The M's needed a bat, they got a bat. 

Second, they traded oft-injured (but still one of my favorite M's) to Toronto for left-handed pitcher JA Happ. Saunders had to go.

The Donald Sterling affair has been a whirlwind of accusations, condemnations and denunciations. And according to the NBA's constitution, it will be over as quickly as it began.

Following commissioner Adam Silver's announcement of a lifetime ban for Sterling, a man $2.5 million fine and encouraging the owners to remove Sterling as owner of the Clippers, the NBA community has rejoiced. In

Mariners return to true form

What a difference 20 days make. Back then, I wrote a take about the Mariners sitting at a nice, but early, 5-2 mark and held sole possession of first place.

Twenty days later and the Mariners have fallen to 8-13, from first place in the American League West to fourth. They were swept in Miami and lost two of three to Houston to start this wee

That's the brutally beautiful thing about baseball... teams typically has plenty of time to return to form, whether it be up or down.
