  1. Mariners kids' arrival long since overdue

    Christina Kahrl

    We're a little more than a third of the way through the season, but let's relish this tidbit as we head into the season's middle months, when moves get made and buyers and sellers are supposed to start sorting themselves out: After beating the Yankee...

  2. NL's latest rookie crop shining bright

    Christina Kahrl

    When it comes to this year's rookies, as fans I think we sort of came into this season like the kid at Christmas the year after you got the bike and the pony, or the new car and the Red Ryder BB gun. Because, let's face it, the year after Mik...

  3. Vargas works deep, gets taken deeper

    Christina Kahrl

    MARYVALE, AZ -- Bringing Jason Vargas over from the Seattle Mariners made sense in that the Los Angeles Angels needed to restock a rotation that had lost Dan Haren, Ervin Santana and Zack Greinke as free agents, and trading for Vargas (as well as Atl...

  4. Which teams are taking big chances on D?

    Christina Kahrl

    As the Hot Stove League burns itself out and we near pitchers and catchers reporting, it's clear that some teams are making wishcasts about their rosters. Spring training might dispel how unrealistic expectations are for some winter lineup designs an...

  5. Mariners' offensive outburst overdue

    Christina Kahrl

    Another game, another double-digit Mariners outburst on the scoreboard? This makes it three in their past four games, and while it's way too soon to talk about the Mariners offense terrorizing anybody, after scoring 31 runs in their last two games in...

  6. Clearing the Bases: Wild, wild Wests

    Christina Kahrl

    First base: Carlos Gonzalez ripped a trio of home runs against the Astros in Coors Field. There's no snark or punchline, just simple facts: The dude can rake, Coors is where he plays and the Astros aren't the joke that people made them out to be in M...

  7. White Sox never counted out Humber

    Christina Kahrl

    Don't count anybody out, ever. But perfect? Philip Humber was never supposed to be perfect, but on the 21st day of April he was exactly that: the 21st pitcher to deliver a perfect game and the first to throw one since Roy Halladay threw the 20th on M...

  8. First-base question marks

    Christina Kahrl

    On Tuesday I ran through Freddie Freeman's projections and reasons to feel good and bad about his 2012, but there's a larger point to make about young first basemen these days, starting with this: Freeman's one of the success stories. Look around ...

  9. Will 2012 see too many 100-loss teams?

    Christina Kahrl

    Where were you when the game embraced the new bad? Not the old bad, mind you -- depending on which generation you're in, that could mean the Major League Indians in the '80s, or it might be the Kansas City A's. Those were teams so hapless and hopeles...

  10. Non-tenders added to free-agent pool

    Christina Kahrl

    Last night gave us the latest set of free agent transactions, as teams reached the deadline to tender 2012 contracts to players -- or not, particularly in the case of a few veteran players eligible for arbitration. The decision to tender or not was a...

  11. AL West: Three fixes for each team

    Christina Kahrl

    Now in its last year of existence, baseball's short stack will get rounded out to five teams when the Astros enter the American League in 2013. But in the meantime, it's another four-way wrestling match. However, it's also a starkly segregated divisi...

  12. Trading problems to help Cubs, Mariners

    Christina Kahrl

    This time of year, there are the fun contracts, the ones that involve oodles of cash and must-have free agents coming to your team. It's Christmas coming early to fans already thinking about next season with optimism. But there are also those other k...

  13. Mariners mistakes now showing

    Christina Kahrl

    The Mariners already have to live with being last year's disappointment. Analysts and commentators worked up over general manager Jack Zduriencik's aggressive embrace of statistical analysis were sure the Mariners were going to deliver on the promise...

  14. Chone Figgins, OBP and BABIP

    Christina Kahrl

    A couple of years ago, a colleague of mine was deriding the virtues of Chone Figgins as a leadoff hitter. This was right after his rough 2006 season which, before his stint with the Mariners, was something of a low point for Figgins as a hitter. He p...

  15. Trading the King: What A-list deals bring

    Christina Kahrl

    Where Felix Hernandez is concerned, it's easy to ditch hope and faith and start demanding the Mariners get down to business and resolve what their King's ransom is. Jim Caple responded to those calling for Seattle to trade its ace by suggesting its t...

    Christina Kahrl
