It's Friday so Salk takes your calls on everything Seattle sports and Brock Huard joins the show to discuss some of the Nick Saban & Jimbo Fisher drama in addition to his thoughts on last night's M's game. Plus, a ranking that allows Salk to incorporate his love for Top gun yet again. See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.…
 
Narrative or reality? Salk says the Narrative is easy: M’s went cheap or blew it and it’s been hurting them all year and finally was made obvious. Reality is that it’s one game. Win two of three and it’s meaningless, but it's hard to see. Maura asks Salk a question - if the Seahawks end up with a winning record: who is most responsible? Running gam…
 
Salk opens the show with trying to understand what evil genius concocted last night's game specifically designed to hurt Mariners fans. It felt like a torture session to see Trevor Story - a player Mariners fans thought might be on their team - hit 3 homeruns against one of our star young pitchers. We revisit The Jerry Dipoto Show from yesterday to…
 
Salk reacts to Jerry Dipoto saying the M's hitting .180 with RISP is unsustainably low and will take a positive turn soon. Then, we dig into the war of words between Jimbo Fisher and Nick Saban. Plus, Brock Huard plays teacher and breaks down some of the more technical explanations Seahawks DC Clint Hurtt gave us of the new defense yesterday. See o…
 
Our second weekly conversation with Michael Bumpus addresses more of the comments made by new Seahawks DC Clint Hurtt and Salk asks Bump to describe what defensive schemes look like from a wide receiver's perspective and how effective they can be. The Jerry Dipoto Show is the first time Salk has been able to talk to Jerry about the roster moves wit…
 
The Mariners are just a hair below even in their run differential but Salk says they have been pitching better than last year but are just not coming up big in the big moments. In theory, that is just luck and it should turn around. Salk liked this question from Jake and Stacy's question: when will the Seahawks be "complete?" Salk says 3 years: One…
 
Jerry Dipoto joins Mike Salk to discuss the difficulties they knew they were facing heading into this road trip and why he's happy with the results so far. He also discusses why Kelenic was sent down and what they are looking for from him, whether Marco Gonzales is sexy or not, and a deadline for a decision on Kyle Lewis. See omnystudio.com/listene…
 
The Mariners seem to win the games that (on paper) look harder by facing better pitching, but Marco Gonzalez gets the job done in Toronto and the Mariners take down Kevin Gausman. We revisit the conversation with Clint Hurtt to hear more about his plans for the new Seahawks defense as a first-time play caller and Salk gets fired about about what Hu…
 
Pete Carroll made the Seahawks great by building an elite defense. They've been far from great in recent years. Was the trade of Russell Wilson the first step in admitting that Carroll plans to build the Legion of Boom 2.0? Brock breaks down the finer points of what he's heard about the Hawks' new defensive system and Mike Salk shares his excitemen…
 
Seahawks defensive coordinator Clint Hurtt joins Salk to discuss his vision for the defense this year, the move to more 3-4 looks, how the secondary will be different, wanting his squad to play more aggressively, and what the next step is for Jamal Adams. Then, Brock Huard gives his thoughts on the differences we will see in Clint Hurtt's defense a…
 
Justin identified with a story about a young Yankees fans losing his collection of autographs and talks about the nostalgia of having sports memorabilia. Salk doesn't get it at all and even says he threw away a Kareem Abdul-Jabbar autograph he got as a child. We ask Mariners fans to call the show and tell Salk what Jerry Dipoto should do next and t…
 
Salk asks... what does Jerry do now? That’s a DFA-kind of a performance from Souza. Should he go get someone like Wil Myers from the Padres, or Kevin Pillar who's in AAA with Dodgers? New Seahawks DC Clint Hurtt has a lot of work to do, but why has the Seahawks defense slipped so much in the last 5 years? Brock Huard joins to discuss how different …
 
"We've got to change the record, don't we?” and “It's the same old song," are not things Salk likes to hear from your coach after another abysmal performance by the Mariners in Toronto. The shining moment was Logan Gilbert's stellar 9k performance, but Salk thinks after yesterday's game it is time to DFA Steven Souza, JR based on his outfield miscu…
 
Salk explains why he's sometimes for practicality over philosophy when it comes to a situation in last night's game where he thought Jesse Winker should have bunted. He debates it with Michael Bumpus and Justin. Then, Brock Huard stops by to discuss the M's loss and asks if it time for the M's to stir up the trade market. See omnystudio.com/listene…
 
Salk's weekly conversation with Joe Fann addresses the things that get under your skin as a sports fan and how annoying it is to see former players beat you in revenge like Kikuchi did last night. Salk asks Joe about the possibility of Drew Lock being a Jared Goff-type under Shane Waldron. Michael Bumpus joins the show to answer three big questions…
 
Shane Waldron was able to get the best out of Jared Goff, so Salk asks if Drew Lock put up those numbers, would it be a success? That isn’t enough to keep the job long term, but it might be enough to challenge in a weak conference. We do some 'Take the L' for the Reds, the Suns and the NHL ref who got himself banned on a hot mic incident. Brock Hua…
 
Salk starts the show by saying he needs to be talked away from the cliff after a brutal loss at the hands of Yusei Kikuchi and the Toronto Blue Jays. The lack of offense and inability to get Yusei uncomfortable like he was with the Mariners was the most frustrating for Salk. We revisit yesterday's conversation with Tyler Polumbus to preview Russell…
 
The Mets have been one of the best teams in baseball but you can't say that they looked significantly better than the M's this weekend. Then, we try and fail to explain Reddit to Salk. Plus, Brock Huard joins to talk some football and makes a big comparison to Julio Rodriguez that M's fans will like. See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy informat…
 
Salk leads us down a math rabbit hole about how 10 + 6 = 3 based on the over/under win projections of both the Seahawks and the Broncos and how it could equal them having a high draft pick next season. Former Seahawks & Broncos OL Tyler Polumbus joins Salk to explain why he predicts the Broncos will only win 10 games and what the first game back in…
 
Salk wants to talk about a player that signed with no fanfare but gives the Mariners flexibility -- Steven Souza. Salk shares his three potential biggest storylines from the weekend: Julio crushing the ball, Diego Castillo striking out 2 in a huge spot, and Jesse Winker's trash-talking swag. Salk is still concerned about Robbie Ray and hopes it was…
 
The bats have woken up a bit for the Mariners in New York against very good pitching to secure a huge road series win against the Mets. Jarred Kelenic sent to AAA and Salk says he would be surprised if the Mariners brought him back before the All-Star Break. Maura takes us Around the Weekend of sports to hear about the FOUR game 7's and other piece…
 
It's Friday so Salk takes your calls on Russell Wilson's return, the importance of this M's road trip, and concern about the Seahawks finding their next quarterback. Then, Brock Huard stops by to discuss the NFL schedule release and how he sees things going for the Broncos following the Russell Wilson trade. Plus, it's Friday the 13th so Ranked fea…
 
Salk has been a longtime advocate of Pop-Tarts and would like some credit for all of the discussion around them lately, especially now that the LA Chargers used Pop-Tarts to show their 2022 schedule. Gee Scott (Gee & Ursula, 97.3 KIRO) joins Salk for his weekly visit to discuss how the fans should react to the return of Russell Wilson in Seattle an…
 
Salk wonders... if the Broncos actually go 10-7, what happens next? Salk thinks the Seahawks could have done that with a healthy Russ and Brock thinks the first year will be Russ’s best in Denver. Beating the Broncos in week one would be awesome and it’s the best chance the Hawks would have to beat them. Shannon Drayer joins us from New York to dis…
 
The NFL schedule is released and even though Salk thinks it's the least-interesting topic in football, people are stoked to learn that the Seahawks will see Russell Wilson in Week 1 on MNF in Seattle. How will fans react? Should they boo? What if Russ actually says he enjoys the booing? We revisit the conversation with Jerry Dipoto as the M’s back …
 
Reading between the lines of Salk's conversation with Jerry Dipoto, it's clear that roster moves are coming for some struggling young players. Salk believes Jarred Kelenic and Cal Raleigh will be sent to Tacoma soon. Then, Brock Huard stops by to debate the pros and cons of sending Kelenic down. Plus, on the heels of the Kentucky Derby, we rank hor…
 
The future of the Seahawks and DK Metcalf should be decided soon, but at what cost to the team? Michael Bumpus joins Salk to talk DK and what it will be like when Russell Wilson returns to Seattle as a member of the Broncos. Salk posts a twitter poll asking fans if they will cheer, boo, or remain indifferent? The Jerry Dipoto Show covers everything…
 
With the rough start for Jarred Kelenic, what is the fix? Salk wants Jerry Dipoto to send JK the same "life preserver" that he said would be used for players who need help and send him to AAA. Our weekly chat with ESPN Insider Jeff Passan dives into the M's issues but he doesn't "believe the Mariners are cooked" by any means and Brock Huard joins t…
 
Salk starts the show with a sad warning of the 2022 season and how it reminds him of the 2010 season after coming off a surprisingly positive 2009 year. It's not that bad yet since we're only a few games below .500, but Justin doesn't feel great to hear the comp. Salk revisits the conversation he had with Shane Waldron to ask about when we might se…
 
The Jerry Dipoto Show covers everything we've seen (and not seen) over the Mariners' recent rough stretch of games, using the "life preserver" for struggling players and how he thinks they can be corrected, plus the potential of roster changes upcoming. See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.…
 
Jarred Kelenic's struggles have continued well into the 2022 season. When will the Mariners decide to send him back down to AAA? Is he completely broken, or simply in need of minor tweaks? Mike Salk breaks down what he's seen so far and what he believes will turn his season around--and an important lesson Kelenic could learn from Julio Rodriguez's …
 
Could Drew Lock end up the Seahawks starter in 2022? We listen in on DeAngelo Hall and Steve Smith of NFL Network explaining why they think so. Meanwhile, Mike Florio thinks the Drew Lock, Geno Smith hype is a long con by Pete Carroll to get Baker Mayfield. Then, Brock Huard stops by to discuss how badly the M's needed last night's win and what the…
 
With one year under his belt as the Seahawks offensive coordinator, Shane Waldron has a big season ahead of him as he will navigate without a franchise QB. Conversation includes draft picks, what happened to the offense at the end of the season, and what's the most challenging part of preparation. With KING5 being the new partner of the Seahawks, P…
 
Salk wonders what it will take for the baseball Gods to turn the 'luck' for the Mariners. The good news is they had some good breaks last night and sometimes that's what it takes to turn the tides in your favor. Jason Churchill (Prospect Insider) joins Salk and answers the question - which M's are in trouble, and who will be just fine? Not surprisi…
 
The Mariners get a much-needed win behind Robbie Ray's 5 2/3 outing with 10Ks, but Salk still doesn't think we've seen the 'real' Robbie Ray - the Cy Young Award winner. We all agreed that the Mariners had more good luck last night with 11 hits - most of which were singles - and the Phillies kicking the ball around. We revisit the conversation with…
 
Michael Bumpus and Mike Salk discuss how much of the M's struggles are to be expected and how much is out of their control. Then, Brock Huard joins the show to weigh the pros and cons of possibly adding Baker Mayfield. Plus, we rank the most exciting ways to win a game. See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.…

Michael Bumpus joins us in his new role with Seattle Sports to break down minicamp and address his own thoughts on Salk's Baker Mayfield waffli…
 
Salk says he can't think of another time in his career where he changed his mind more often on a subject than he has on Baker Mayfield. Salk thinks he's better than their current options, but do you want to be back in the business of paying a QB big money? We "Take the L" before Salk discusses his upcoming "procedure" with Brock Huard and his thoug…
 
Mariners get shut out again at home and Salk discusses the Predictable & Unpredictable of this young season from starting pitching depth, too much reliance on youth and injuries to the lineup and bullpen. We go Around Seattle Sports to hear Jake and Stacy talk about what a joke the CB competition was last year and how it should be improved now and …

Then, Brock Huard joins Salk to get a full "body show" report on Seahawks rookie mini-camp and discuss George Kirby's first start. Plus, we discuss unfortunate athlete names in Ranked. See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy informat…
 
With the Mariners win on Sunday Salk asks what was the best/most memorable part of the weekend. Was it Kelenic's pinch-hit HR, Toro's 9th inning HR or George Kirby's start? The answer is probably Kirby, but the Ty France walk-off win was so absolutely needed. Seahawks ESPN Insider Brady Henderson joins to discuss what he saw from the rookie minicam…
 
Salk is holding faith with the Mariners for many reasons, but one of the big ones is so you're not the fan to "quit" too early like his old buddy once did. Maura and Salk both attended Seahawks rookie minicamp and had a lot of observation to share with a special edition of the Body Show to describe the physicality of the new players. Brock Huard jo…
 
We start the show how thankful we were for the Mariners getting their win yesterday on a walk-off hit from Ty France after seeing a historic debut for a Mariners pitcher as George Kirby throws 6 scoreless w/ 7 K's. Salk says baseball has a way of pushing you right to the edge before bringing you back. Maura takes us Around the Weekend of sports inc…

Then, Brock Huard joins Salk to discuss his favorite current Seattle athlete and who wins in the proposed race between DK Metcalf and Tyreek Hill…
 
It seems like most of the voices in the national media is taking their shots at the QB situation with the Seahawks from Mike Florio, Marcus Spears, RG III and even Richard Sherman on his podcast. How does this make Seahawks fans feel? Stacy Rost joins Salk in place of Gee Scott and gets into a long discussion about Pop Tarts and the artificial bana…
 
Salk is having a tough time with Matt Brash being sent to AAA, but not because of his tough start, but because of him going to the bullpen and weighs through the Pros & Cons of the decision and admits that he's been wrong before on this type of demotion (Jonathan Papelbon). This is the challenge with the team essentially declaring to "win now" with…
 
Salk starts the show with a story about his doctor's appointment and how he refused to get weighed and somehow shrunk nearly a whole inch. The Mariners drop another loss last night and continue their rough offensive streak. Salk wants to see Robbie Ray look like the former Cy Young winner that he was last year. We heard from Jerry Dipoto yesterday …
 
Jerry Dipoto confirmed that roster moves are coming today. It would be understandable if Brash and/or Kelenic are sent down to try and get right. Then, Brock Huard reacts to Richard Sherman's comments on the Seahawks draft and suggests his own reason why they drafted the way they did. Plus, our Ranked today is in honor of the Sounders becoming the …
 
What's the deal with umpires/referees these days?
