Daily coverage of the Mariners during the season and all year long.

A note for those attending Saturday’s game at Safeco (or hoping to watch it on TV)

Saturday’s Mariner game against the Indians at Safeco Field will start at 1:10 p.m. Some early Mariner schedules listed it as a 7:10 p.m. start.
Fans who plan to attend should allow for some traffic snarls and parking issues, because the Seattle Sounders have a soccer game at Qwest Field that starts at 12 noon.
The Mariners scheduled the game in the afternoon at the behest of the City of Seattle, because the annual Seafair Torchlight Parade (and run) will be held that evening. The Sounders announced their schedule several months after the Mariners’ released their 2009 schedule. The Sounders’ noon start was set by Major League Soccer because the game is being televised by ESPN.
Once they found out about the Sounders game, the Mariners asked the city if they wanted the M’s to change their start time, but the city requested that the Mariners leave it at 1 p.m because of the Torchlight events.
One more thing: the Saturday game will not be televised by FSN Northwest because it is during the national exclusive “window” for FOX Saturday Baseball.
