1B Justin Smoak went into Sunday's game with a .190 batting average as a right-handed batter. While he did hit a home run against C.J. Wilson while batting from the right side of the plate, the switch-hitter realizes that there is plenty of room for improvement. "Right-handed is my natural side and it's one of those things this year," he said. "I feel like I'm in a better place left-handed. I'm a way better hitter than I've been.

LF Michael Saunders showed the value of batting practice by rapping two extra-base hits on Tuesday and adding two more Wednesday, a pair of run-scoring doubles. "He had a great early BP (Tuesday)," manager Eric Wedge said. "The ball was really jumping off his bat and he was able to take it into the game." The key for Saunders is to stay back more consistently, allowing him to get in position to drive the ball. Wedge is impressed how Saunders has handled inconsistent playing time.

MLB Team Report - Seattle Mariners - INSIDE PITCH An ace-less starting rotation and a regressing offense only seem to be part of the problem for the free-falling Mariners, who are beginning to realize that their bullpen might be the biggest issue of all.
