Fernando’s arrows are taking flight. Follow the Mariners on Twitter after every Rodney save for clues to figure out where each one landed. The fan that finds each arrow will win four tickets to an upcoming home game and an on-field photo before the game.

The search was on after Fernando locked down his 39th save of the season in today’s 5-3 win over the Nationals.

Mariners All-Access

 root_sports_northwest

This week on Mariners All-Access on ROOT SPORTS, talk of the postseason, bunting, hitting and whether Edgar Martinez belongs in the Hall of Fame.

Here’s a rundown of Jen Mueller’s lineup for the program:

  • September Schedule – It looked a little odd at first, but the upcoming schedule could definitely play to the advantage of the Mariners.
  • Seager/Blowers – We finish the conversation between Kyle Seager and Mike Blowers and learn how Kyle tries to bait hitters into bunting and allowing him to make one of his favorite plays over to first base.
  • Felix Update – We update the numbers for the AL Cy Young front-runner.
  • DH in the Hall of Fame? – With the importance of the DH to offense in general and the Mariners during the playoff push, we wade into the discussion about the merits of inducting a true DH in the Hall of Fame (TRT 4:00)
  • Blowers on DH’s – Mike Blowers makes a case for Designated Hitters in general as a vital part of the game and deserving of the Hall of Fame.
  • Edgar in the HOF – Edgar Martinez produced several clutch hits during the Mariners playoff runs and was considered one of the best right handed hitters of his time. Players past and present give their support of seeing Edgar in the Hall.
  • Blowers on Edgar – It’s no surprise Mike thinks Edgar is deserving of a HOF spot, but hear his reasoning why.
  • Favorite Things Baskets – The annual “Favorite Things” baskets raised money for Mariners Care and is always a highly anticipated event at Safeco Field.
  • Soundtracks – The best highlights and postgame sound from the week.

  • Monday – 6:30am, noon

Mariners respond to Centerplate CEO’s animal cruelty incident

There are lots of animal lovers who work here at the Seattle Mariners and we were as outraged as everyone else at the video that shows the CEO of Centerplate abusing a dog.

Centerplate is an international corporation that provides concessions services here at Safeco Field and hundreds of other venues in the U.S.

When the video came to light, we communicated directly to Centerplate our concerns over Des Hague’s behavior (he’s their CEO), and that we expected them to take all appropriate disciplinary action.

Yesterday, the Centerplate Board of Directors announced their penalties for Hague (you can read the full statement from the Board here). In short, as a condition of his continued employment, Hague was ordered to make a personal donation of $100,000 to create a foundation, in honor of the dog that was mistreated, to support the protection and safety of animals in the city of Vancouver, B.C., where the incident occurred. Hague was also placed on indefinite probation and ordered to perform 1,000 hours of community service in support of an organization that protects animal welfare. He also faces the possibility of charges in Vancouver.

In solidarity with all of you who were as outraged by the video as we are, this morning, the Mariners announced that we will donate a portion of the proceeds from sales at Safeco Field concession stands during games in September to the Humane Society for Seattle/King County.

Our hope is that something good can come from this terrible situation.
