07/21/2018   Seattle Times Sounders

The Sounders didn't really need their new addition today, but the cheers that greeted Raul Ruidiaz weren’t so much about what he’d do on this day in a contest all-but-decided, but rather, how he’ll impact the team’s slim playoff hopes the final 15 matches.
07/21/2018   Seattle Times Sounders

Raul Ruidiaz is starting Saturday's game on the bench for the second straight week, though the Peruvian striker is almost certain to make his Sounders debut at some point in a critical home match against the Vancouver Whitecaps
07/20/2018   Seattle Times Sounders

The Sounders waived Norwegian midfielder Magnus Wolff Eikrem on Friday, saying the targeted allocation money player was no longer the fit once envisioned. The team needs some goals and a win Saturday at home against the Vancouver Whitecaps to get back in the Western Conference playoff picture
07/20/2018   Seattle PI Mariners
SEATTLE (AP) — The Seattle Mariners will have some continuity in the managerial chair for a change. Seattle signed Scott Servais to a multiyear contract extension Friday as the club opened the second half of the season in position to potentially end the longest current playoff drought in the four major pro sports. The extension was a reward after Servais led Seattle to a 58-39 record prior to the All-Star break and a hold on the second wild-card spot in the American League. Seattle hasn't been to the postseason since 2001. "I'm still learning and I look forward to learning," Servais said. "It's about our players and how we prepare and how do we beat the opponent. You constantly are trying to get better at this.
07/20/2018   Seattle Times: Huskies

The Huskies secondary should be one of the best in college football again in 2018. The question isn't about talent, though, it's about health. If the key players can avoid serious injuries, opposing passing games beware.

Washington State quarterback Tyler Hilinski had signs of chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE) when he took his own life in January. While this revelation doesn't provide many answers, it does prompt copious questions.
06/26/2018   Seattle Times Cougars

The Cougars coach says USA Today columnist Dan Wolken, who said bigger schools don’t want to hire him, will be serving Big Gulps in a few years: “He does a horrible job and doesn’t know what he’s talking about.”
