Mariners beat writer Ryan Divish on Seattle’s postseason breakthrough: Sports By Northwest podcast

In 15 seasons covering the Mariners for the Seattle Times, Ryan Divish has covered seven different managers, three general managers and exactly zero playoff games. Until this season.

Divish, a Montana native, is usually back in his hometown of Havre by this time of year. Except a magical run by the Mariners has the Northwest’s lone Major League club back in the postseason for the first time since 2001.

Prior to Game 2 in Houston, Divish joined this week’s episode of Sports By Northwest to discuss the Mariners breakthrough and his career covering a losing franchise.

Here are some highlights from this week’s show:

· Divish talks about the moments this season when he felt like the Mariners might finally have luck and a little magic on their side

· What is it like to see a city fall in love with a team again? Divish sees it every day in Seattle.

· Divish talks about baseball writers he loves and how he found his voice on the beat.

· Baseball is perhaps the most literary of all sports. Divish discusses his favorite books about America’s pastime.
