04:59 AM - August 20, 2014. Written by HadlerT
Well, it was a good season.

The Mariners handed the ball to King Felix in game 7 to all but ensure a ALCS victory and the franchise's first ever trip to the World Series. But that's just not how it was supposed to be.

Felix was his dominant self, going 8 IP and giving up no runs on three hits. He also had 15 Ks.

However, him giving up 0 runs in 8 IP doesn't matter when the offense doesn't score any runs in NINE innings. Top of the ninth, Ichiro just ... Read More

Game 5:
Beavan/Sabathia

The Yankees score first as Brian McCann doubles in Derek Jeter for a 1-0 lead in the bottom of the third. Blake Beavan escaped a bases loaded jam to escape further damage.

However, in the bottom of the 4th, Ichiro (lol) hit a HR to right field. 2-0 Yankees after 4 full innings.

In the top of the 8th, #9 hitter Chris Taylor his a Leadoff HR to make it 2-1. 3 runs later, and we're going into the 9th with a 4-2 lead. ... Read More

Game 3:
Paxton vs. McCarthy

Mariners took a early lead in the first, scoring three runs. They also added 2 in the 5th to make it 5-0. The Yankees scored one run in the 5th as well to make it 5-1. In the 7th, Cano homered to make it 6-1 M's.

A home run by Chase Headley made it 6-2 and Farquhar shut the door for the win.

Mariners are now only down 1-3, and in game 4, will send Roenis Elias to the mound against former Mariner Michael Pineda. ... Read More

Game 1 ALCS:
Felix vs. Hiroki Kuroda

In the bottom of the first, three straight base hits by Cano/Morales/Seager brought up Justin Smoak with the bases loaded and two outs. He popped out to Brian McCann at C in foul territory. I really wish I had Logan Morrison instead if Smoak.

In the top of third, the Yankee's 9/1/2 hitters (Ichiro/Gardner/Jeter) all had base hits, which made the bases loaded for Jacoby Ellsbury. He struck out looking on a 0-2 sinker. ... Read More
Game 3: Paxton vs. Gray

Both pitchers were perfect through 6, but Paxton gave up a Leadoff HR to Crisp in the bottom of the 7th.

Gray shut us down, but we both took advantage if each other's bullpens.

Lost the game log, but FINAL score: Oak 6 - 4 Sea

I'll post a quicker write up for games 4/5 like I did for game 3, at the end of the series, win or lose, I'll post the stats from all the hitters.

Game 4:
Elias vs. ... Read More

ALDS Results:
Game 1
Hernandez vs. Lester

Lester was perfect through 5, but unfortunately for him, Dustin Ackley smacked a HR with one out in the 6th. Felix was perfect though 7, but unfortunately he gave up a leadoff solo HR to Brandon Moss to start the 8th.

In the bottom of the 9th, tied 1-1, Cano led off with a single, followed by Morales, who flew out to RF. Seager was up next, and Cano stole second during his at bat. He grounded out to 2B, and Cano ... Read More

I can't help but to feel excited about all the news and gameplay videos I've seen for 2k15. It looks as if they have really had a reality check, and are starting to move back in the direction that made them so great in the first place, as far as gameplay goes. The gameplay videos of the earlier builds have been nothing but inspiring to me, judging by the slowed down pace, defensive contact animations, and the lack of sliding.

Then there is MyLeague, which is a mode where I think ... Read More

Now that July has come and gone, and left us with no satisfaction of a new NCAA Football game I sit and have day dreams of what could of been. I dream about playing in the CF-Playoffs in year 15 of my offline dynasty, maybe the implementation of real packaged plays in the game or even building up my former college Georgia Southern University since they just made the jump to Div I (or what-ever they call it now). All of these dreams have been suppressed not that a month has gone by and ... Read More

02:26 PM - August 19, 2014. Written by XXstormmXX
Why is it that players, coaches, and owners can switch teams and nobody cares but if a fan switches, it's a betrayal? Zlatan Ibrahimovic played for Juventus, Inter, and Milan and nobody complained even though those clubs hate each other. Mo Johnson played for both the Old Firm teams and that's the biggest rivalry in the U.K. RVP played for Arsenal and then switched to United. Ronaldo played for Barca and Madrid.

I don't see anyone saying these are terrible people or anything for playing ... Read More

Finally at the All Star Break! It's been a long season. But it's also been fun as we currently lead the division by one game over the A's. Also, IRL, I'm ahead of these updates, so if they seem to be coming out fast, it's because I have them already written and everything.

Futures game update:

The Mariners were definitely represented in the Futures game. As on the World team, Gabriel Guerrero was the starting RF and batted 6th in the lineup. He went 1-2 with a RBI ... Read More
